Donald Trump got booed at Davos when he whined about ‘fake news’

Donald Trump arrived in Davos, Switzerland yesterday. Today was for interviews with the international media and his big speech. I don’t even know why Trump wanted to go to Davos – he knows he doesn’t travel well, but I suspect he went to Davos for the same reason why Steve Bannon speaks to the New York Times: wingnut dumbasses crave acceptance from the very people they attack. Surrounded by the “globalists” he claimed to despise, Trump pushed his deep-as-a-puddle “America First” bullsh-t and then bitch got booed for whining about fake news.

That’s all I need to know. Thanks, I don’t have to watch the speech. You know why? Because I watched a one-minute clip of Trump being interviewed by Piers Morgan and I had my f–king fill. Piers Morgan fed Trump the answers he wanted as Trump rambled on and on about how he didn’t know what he was doing when he retweeted propaganda from a white nationalist hate group. Trump said: “It was done because I am a big believer in fighting radical Islam terror, this was a depiction of radical Islamic terror. If you’re telling me they’re horrible people, horrible racist people I would certainly apologize if you would like me to do that…I am the least racist person that anybody is going to meet. Certainly I wasn’t endorsing anybody.” I can’t. I’m so done with all of this.

    I guess things are quite different when one cannot handpick the audience.

    • Snazzy says:

      exactly this

    • Elkie says:

      If only I could find that video clip of Obama explaining that part of his job as president was to fight for the right of the American people to openly criticise him.

      Happy days…

    • Megan says:

      Apparently there was booing during his introduction and very tepid clapping before and after that pile of crazy they are calling a speech. It is so humiliating to be an American right now.

      • V says:

        We know most of you are good people.

        Love, an Aussie

      • GreenTurtle says:

        Thanks, V. I always smile when reading supportive comments from commonwealth CBs. Every bit of kindness is hugely encouraging in times like these.

      • Addison says:

        Thank you V. I’m glad that there are plenty of people who see that the majority of the US does not support this vile human being.

    • Giddy says:

      I sincerely hope that every time a crowd sees the orange menace, there are boos. I wish that I had some Xanax to help me through the embarrassment and humiliation of having him represent our country.

  2. HH says:

    My disdain for him prevents me from watching the news too much. I need to retain my sanity and blood pressure.

    Also, during this speech Hope Hicks was wearing thigh high boots and a wrap dress? GIRL.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5316619/Hope-Hicks-stuns-World-Economic-Forum-Devos.html

    • Lightpurple says:

      “Hope, who wore very heavy makeup, looked fascinated as Trump declared the US open for business.’” Dying here!

      • HH says:

        HA!

        She likes to make overseas trips her “fashion moments.”

        Also, I used to wonder why Sarah Huckabee Sanders did her makeup so heavy. Now, I know that she’s following in Hope’s footsteps. It’s beautiful makeup, but not for work. Although, at this point, everyone women in the Trump administration seems to be consumed with looks.

      • Giddy says:

        Hope knows that her job overseas consists of looking sexy, and looking fascinated. He wants other leaders to envy his glam Girl Friday.

      • Esmom says:

        I thought SHS did her makeup that way on the recommendation of the Mooch. Snicker. Seriously, though, I thought he ordered a makeover for her.

    • Angela82 says:

      OMG those boots. I don’t even hate them but they just feel so out of place I can’t. Ugh.

    • Lala says:

      That’s the uniform he prefers on “his women” in the wintertime…wrap dresses/short skirs and high boots…and ALWAYS heavy makeup and long hair…When I saw Huckabee dressed in that type of outfit last week, I felt ill…

      • HH says:

        I think Huckabee takes so much of her style ques from Hope Hicks. When Huckabee first stepped on the scene, she looked very…unrefined. Since then she’s attempted to jazz up her appearance, but she has missed the mark. I wondered why, but after seeing Hope, I totally get it. Hope has the fake lashes, the heavy eye makeup, etc. and Huckabee thinks that’s what is appropriate.

      • Christin says:

        During his very brief orbit in the WH, the Mooch mentioned he’d ordered hair and makeup help for Sarah (and himself). She seems back on board with the heavier makeup of the Mooch week.

      • HH says:

        She was wearing false eyelashes and a smokey eye well before that. Mooch said it during a day wear she wasn’t wearing that look, but she had a “makeover” so to speak well before then.

      • jwoolman says:

        It’really sad- Huckabee Sanders looked fine the way she was originally. She’s not a Hollywood actress, she’s working at a job. Guys don’t require makeup to do that job and neither does she. Mooch is definitely the one who started it. He’s such a jerk.

    • Cee says:

      Her make-up is tragic. She looks like a clown and not professional AT ALL.

      • Kitten says:

        She looks a good decade or two older than her actual age with all that crap on her face. Awful.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Step away from the contouring kit, Hope! It really is not flattering. I also agree that it isn’t professional and it ages her.

    • INeedANap says:

      She needs to learn to BLEND her makeup! I can see the foundation ending at her neck.

      I did love her lady tux at a state dinner last year, but otherwise…girl. At least try to look professional.

    • noodle says:

      oh goodness, I have zero understanding about makeup but Hope’s looks the wrong colour. the difference between neck and face is pretty noticeable.

    • Anastasia says:

      “Tan” face, white neck.

    • holly hobby says:

      So inappropriate but not unexpected. So is she the one he’s sleeping with in the white house (shudder)?

  3. Olenna says:

    He is a national embarrassment.

  4. minx says:

    His staff babies him and isolates him, so it is nice to see him in exposed to normal people.

  5. Indiana Joanna says:

    As the rest of the world moves on beyond the US and drump’s MAGA childish, ignorant project leading us into isolationism, one day we might find our country becoming the “s******e” of the world. The billionaires will be OK because they essentially have their own international network and buddies club.

    Thank God for those hisses.

  6. Girl_ninja says:

    Yesss, yessssss…rain down the boos on the orange demon!

  7. Lightpurple says:

    Sorry but, as President, if you know nothing about something, you shouldn’t retweet it. You should do research and you have these things called “Intelligence agencies, 17 of them, to do that research for you. Those videos you retweeted were pure racist propaganda intended to incite violence. You knew EXACTLY what you were doing and, if you really didn’t, resign.

  8. littlemissnaughty says:

    I’m laughing so hard. It’s not even like I respect the WEF that much. Every year Davos just proves how very Western-centric it is and how it treats large parts of the world as unimportant and/or places to be “handled”. Like children. I’m not a huge fan but there are some interesting issues being discussed and the people attending are not stupid. They’re also NOT going to let a buffoon like him get away with this sh*t. WHO thought this speech was a good idea? He’s probably crying into his ice cream.

  9. Nicole says:

    *wipes off the 1 from my white board*
    0 days since the last international embarrassment

  10. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Y’all are better than I. I can’t listen (or read) anything he says, but I can read quoted text if the author is about to slam his ass lol. For more than a year, when his image assaults my screens, I change channels or exit the room. He makes me want to vomit, and every single day I wait to read something something about the masses doing and saying negative something something and yadda yadda yadda about our disgraceful state of political affairs. I’ve signed so many petitions I should create an app that automatically does it for me.

    • Giddy says:

      Same here. We’re watching Netflix more than ever to avoid seeing He Who Should Not Be Named. (or heard or seen)

    • swak says:

      I can’t listen to him talk either. I’m trying to stay away from the news also because it seems like the same old sh!t just a different day and it’s depressing.

  11. Deanne says:

    He’s at a world economic summit pushing “America First”. Why should other countries put America first? It’s idiotic.Especially with this moron at the helm. Apparently many countries are planning to walk out on his speech to protest his shi!thole country comments. I hope they do.

    • Anastasia says:

      He’s narcissistic, so of course when he goes to international forums, that extends to American narcissism, which most of the world already has seen in us, he’s just taking it a billion times further.

      So. Embarrassing.

  12. swak says:

    I’m glad he was booed. Who in the heck (other than Trump) complains about fake news to an international crowd. If you didn’t think he was childish before, you have to believe that now. Kelly wasn’t there to keep Trump in check. The picture of Jared and Hicks makes me wonder who is sleeping with whom.

  13. Ruyana says:

    Amazing how he hates “radical Islam terror” and is a big believer in fighting it, but has no problem at all with home-grown White Nationalist and KKK terror. And let’s not forget the terror sanctioned by the NRA every time they urge “a gun for everyone”.

    I hate him with the fire of a thousand suns and I really hope I get to see a televised perp walk with him sobbing big greasy tears.

  14. Mia says:

    I just read somewhere that The White House claims that Trump’s jibe at the media was received with laughter in the Davos hall.

    • swak says:

      Their spin on the subject. Got to make sure Bigly isn’t hurt by the reaction. Waiting to see what he tweets about the boos and hisses. “Bigliest ones EVA!”

      • Lady D says:

        The DM said he stated that ” It’s a crowd like they’ve never had before at Davos.”

      • GreenTurtle says:

        I read another article on it that phrased it as follows: “Trump’s presence in Switzerland has been dogged by protests and stunts by activists. But the president said there was “a tremendous crowd” to meet him at the summit.
        ‘It’s a crowd like they’ve never had before at Davos,’ said Trump, who has never before attended the forum.”

  15. Lyla says:

    Did you see how the president of siemens shaded him? Trump was all like “by the way, when he says he works for Siemens, he’s the *president* of Siemens, but that’s okay. That’s a good way of saying it, but go ahead.”

    Siemens president: “But don’t you work for your country?”

  16. Janet Gerber says:

    Mia, I could have predicted Trump would lie about the booing actually being cheering for him hi is the biggest dispenser of fake news, which is defined by the Pope as disinformation.

  17. Beth says:

    When I watched it, I wasn’t sure if they were booing him or the media. Him always saying that ” CNN just turned off their cameras,” cracks me up because I’m actually watching it on CNN

  18. Shappalled says:

    Here in Australia the ABC are reporting that Trump has been positively received at Davos and that they’re not sure if the booing was directed at him or the people he was criticizing.

    • jwoolman says:

      But the Trump’s fake news thing isn’t really a thing elsewhere. It’s like when Trump tried to claim everybody at an international conference (G5?) was talking about Podesta’s e-mails. Why would they? It’s a non-issue outside the US and not much of one inside the US.

      Hissing and booing are generally aimed at the speaker. Ivanka got some of that herself at a conference in Europe when she said unbelievable stuff. If the audience likes what the speaker is saying, they cheer or clap to show they agree. It makes no sense to boo and hiss unless they don’t like what he is saying. They didn’t clap for him enthusiastically at the end either. He got pity claps from polite people.

      The participants have figured out that they don’t actually need to make Trump feel comfy. They can’t trust anything he tells them anyway, so the US is benched for the duration.

      Poor Donald. The real billionaires and government leaders still don’t like him.

  19. themummy says:

    So…Hope Hicks dressed as a hooker for this event?? Um, ok. (And yes, I suppose people can wear thigh high boots and not look whorish, of course, but I have never seen it. And I mean no disrespect to prostitutes at all–it’s just that that style of boots does seem to be prostitute style, which is not a bad thing, but just inappropriate dress for this event).

    I just watched the video of Trump getting booed. It didn’t even phase him! Is it just me or did he smirk when that happened??

    • jwoolman says:

      He probably assumes the boos are for the media, not him. I think it was for him, they would have clapped otherwise. Poor delusional POTUS.

      If there were a lot of rich people there, it’s likely that some of them own media or at least have stock in it. Donald probably didn’t think about that before going off his usual rally rant about “fake news”. Also memories seem longer in Europe, and they remember what happened when Nazis started yelling about “fake news”, can’t remember the German version of the term.

  20. Dita von Katzhausen says:

    Hahahaha “until I became a politician” ahahahahah
    He became POTUS (or ANUS) he is by no means a politician. He is hilarious!!

  21. CaffeineQueen7734 says:

    I never dreamed I would call a sitting president a c**t. To his face. As often as I could between Twitter bans. I’m so topped out on outrage and sugar I need to either hit something or get laid. I still cannot fucking believe this is real life. It’s like a really bad cartoon based on a bad paperback novel.
