President Donald Trump was blasted as being “a lion on Twitter but a pussycat in person” after his feelings were hurt by world leaders during the NATO summit in London.
Max Boot, a conservative Washington Post columnist, noted Trump’s interactions with French President Emmanuel Macron.
“Macron took advantage of Trump’s reticence for face-to-face confrontations to smack Trump around in their joint press availability. To make sure that nothing was lost in translation, he spoke in English — a language that he employs more eloquently than the native New Yorker sitting next to him,” Boot wrote.
Boot said, “it was little wonder that Macron, [UK Prime Minister Boris] Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were laughing at Trump and making fun of his tirades.”
“For years Trump has been claiming that “the entire world was laughing and taking advantage of us.” That wasn’t true before. It’s true now,” Boot wrote.
“The open disdain and derision of his fellow world leaders was too much for Trump’s fragile ego. Trump’s followers make fun of liberals for supposedly being ‘snowflakes’ who melt down when confronted and for being easily ‘triggered,’ but no one is a bigger ‘snowflake’ or more easily ‘triggered’ than Trump himself,” Boot explained.

‘Odd Radio Circles’ perplex astronomers studying the newly discovered phenomenon
Astronomers believe they have discovered a new, bizarre type of cosmic object that is invisible to all wavelengths of light except radio.
The strange circular objects in question have been unofficially dubbed "Odd Radio Circles" (ORCs); three of them were discovered in a recent data accumulated during a preliminary survey by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, a radio telescope array in Western Australia. A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.
Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?
Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.
But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
