Something Out of Nothing? Media Connects Trump Leaving NATO Conference to Video Flap

Something Out of Nothing? Media Connects Trump Leaving NATO Conference to Video Flap

Does the media like causing drama? (Yes that’s a rhetorical question)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVTauhlIx2A

A video appears to show Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, and Anne, Princess Royal gossiping about President Donald Trump.

The media has used this video to explain why Trump announced this morning that he planned to leave the NATO conference early.

The more I look into this, the more I realize there’s not much to either story. It seems like the media and people on both sides have blown something out of proportion. Let me explain.

The Video

From CNBC:

During the brief video, in which the world leaders don’t appear to realize their conversation is being recorded, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson asks French President Emmanuel Macron: “Is that why you were late?” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau then steps in and says: “He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top.”

It is not clear who Trudeau was referring to and none of people present — which also includes Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Princess Anne — mention Trump by name.

However, Trump’s remarks alongside NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg earlier on Tuesday lasted 53 minutes, according to a White House transcript, when the itinerary had suggested that it would last 20 minutes. The U.S. president was later involved in 38 minutes of remarks alongside Macron.

Trudeau also said that “[Y]ou just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.”

Well, Trudeau is not wrong, and I can see how it can get annoying. But the press seems to want to continually ask Trump questions because he gives them soundbites that draw in people.

But I saw people on the left claim the video proves no one likes Trump, and they isolated him on the world stage. Blah blah blah.

Does it? I don’t think so. Trudeau explained on Wednesday that he has a great relationship with Trump. He also said the “jaws drop to the floor” referenced the surprise long press conference and the announcement that Trump will host the G7 meeting at Camp David.

I think they don’t like Trump, mainly because he wants NATO countries to pay their share of the budget. It is crap that America has to foot a lot of the bill, especially since NATO, at least to me, is a waste of money and resources.

It could have been worse. A lot worse. It’s not jaw-dropping or gasp-inducing.

Trump Leaving

Somehow the media on both sides have connected this video to the reason why Trump has left the conference.

However, Trump said:

Give me a break. Have you ever seen Trump bite his tongue or hold back? If he left because of the video, he would have said so. There is absolutely no evidence he left because of Trudeau’s remarks.

Conclusion

Trudeau’s remarks aren’t worth any fuss. There’s no evidence Trump left over them. It’s all so stupid, but what else is new?

I am no fan of Trump, but I am sick and tired of people picking apart every little thing about him if they treated President Barack Obama like this it wouldn’t bother me so much.

Can’t say I blame him. Would you want to spend time with the likes of Trudeau, Merkel or Macron?

The biggest European mistake the U.S. ever made was showing up for World War I in the first place.

    The world would be a lot better off it it hadn’t. Blame Woodrow Wilson, a president even worse than 0bama.

      I beg to differ.
      The problem is not that we helped the Germans lose, the problem is Wilson had crazy ideas for the peace. League of Nations and all that stuff with overly vindictiveness against the German people.
      What evidence is there that a German victory would have given the world more peace than we had?

… and no more filming at Palace receptions. LOL, who filmed it and who leaked it and what were their motives?

Trudeau is the smarmy kid that tries to hard. The rich kid with an insecurity complex because his parents ignored him.

The media is completely corrupt and a part of the leftist/swamp/islamic fascist cabal in the United States.

What else is new?

    Btw, both macron and trudeau are the standard for beta males.

    In macron’s case, he is like that idiot former NFL player and current Nike clown: led by the nose by a crazy woman. Probably also true in trudeau’s case. (Imagine a mentally healthy woman in bed with trudeau? – “Take me! Take me know, you blackface dancing fool!”)

Trump is a worker, always has been: he got done everything he needed to do there, so he’s headed back home to work some more.

the rest of those clowns live to stand around and chat with each other.

and an alpha male like Trump isn’t going to be bothered by anything those candy asses have to say, although i’ll say that was damned stupid of them, and it will come back to bite them.

France and the UK – always there when they need US.

These international conferences must be dreadfully tedious to someone who doesn’t drink.

“I am no fan of Trump…”
Why not?

She never has been a fan of Trumps
Likes them sweet and ever so Kind, like the Canadian clown

By the way, I noticed Macron now sitting exactly like Trump lol

Dang if you will catch him with those dainty ankles all crossed like the black faced clown

Interesting that the media is outraged about Trump calling Blackface Justine two faced but not outraged at the hugely humiliating diplomatic failure that TwoFace allowed his comments to be recorded.

Guarantee you no one will ask him why he made those comments and what impact those comments may have on his countries relationship with their neighbour.

the world leaders don’t appear to realize their conversation is being recorded

Well…..I don’t hear anything…do you…?????

Can anyone tell me if there is a link to the recording of the actual conversation…?

What we have here is a video of a group of people standing around talking and some text telling us what they were saying….

The media can make mountains out of imaginary molehills.

“Look at Trump pick up that glass with his left hand! He must have had a stroke!”

When Trump leaves office (hopefully after his 2nd term), the media will not know what to do with themselves. He will be so in their heads that they will run comparison pieces from then to now over and over and over again. They are so entrenched.

What “media” You mean the fascist propaganda machine?

Why would Trump’s aides’ jaws drop on the floor at supposedly hearing about the. Hange of venues for next year’s G7? They knew that for weeks gust like most people who pay attention to all news, not just leftist news.

It was a missed opportunity for the President. All he had to say was “So what? Big deal. I can take a cocktail party joke at my expense. BTW, shouldn’t you be working on the 2 percent GDP you guys owe the club?”
