On Tuesday, President Donald Trump held a joint press conference with French President Emanuel Macron, during which he was smacked down for lying about Syrian ISIS fighters, contradicted his own Secretary of State over Iran protesters, and claimed that he had “exposed” the European Union as a conspiracy to economically disadvantage the United States.
Commenters on social media quickly jumped on Trump’s bizarre and humiliating performance:
Trump, with Macron, says the European Union was partially formed to “take advantage of the United States.” He says “I’ve exposed it” and “a lot of people didn’t know it.”
A lot of people didn’t know because it’s a LIE

Sarcasm really isn’t a good look on the international stage. But he just can’t help himself.

He looks like an orangutan sitting there swaying from side to side. I don’t think he is comprehending the conversation.

I had to turn it off, it’s so embarrassing listening to Trump talking about nothing. Good God doesn’t he prepare for these meetings? He sounds like an elementary school kid trying to answer a question he knows nothing about.
