Donald Trump is addressing the United Nations in New York today, and opened his speech by bragging about his accomplishments.
“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said.
An awkward tittering followed.
“So true,” Trump said.
The entire U.N. erupted in laughter.
“Didn’t expect that reaction but that’s OK,” Trump said.
After an awkward pause, Trump went on to brag about the stock market and unemployment.

‘Fox & Friends’ Tells Trump to Fix Disastrous Putin Press Conference by ‘Tweeting Something Out Today’
‘Very, Very, Very Grave Mistake’
Even President Donald Trump’s favorite morning news show is sounding the alarm about his jaw-dropping performance at a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.
During an interview with author Daniel Silva on Tuesday, host Brian Kilmeade asked him to sum up his thoughts on Trump’s widely panned appearance in which the president wouldn’t say if he believed his own intelligence agencies about whether Russia hacked Hillary Clinton’s campaign emails.
Silva did not mince any words.
“I think that even the president’s closest aides and his most ardent supporters would concede that he made a very, very, very grave mistake yesterday in Helsinki,” the author replied.
Kilmeade seemed to concede that Trump’s actions in Helsinki were not ideal, although he still thought the situation was salvageable. He then made an indirect appeal to Trump to fix the situation himself via his Twitter account.
“It’s correctable,” the Fox host insisted. “It’s still early. He can start by even tweeting something out today.”

Impossible ‘To Overestimate Just How Despised He Is’: 50,000 in London Preparing to Protest Trump
CNBC correspondent Wilfred Frost reported on Wednesday that over 50,000 protesters are gearing up to oppose U.S. President Donald Trump when he visits London on Friday.
“The president goes from Brussels to the United Kingdom tomorrow, what reception will he get here?” Frost began.
Alastair Campbell, former spokesperson for Tony Blair, argued that it was impossible “to overestimate just how despised he is.”
“He might think it’s unfair… But I think people feel that America is special country and, therefore, the leadership in America should be something that British people can look up to and respect,” Campbell explained. “I’m afraid there is very little respect for him.”
“I suspect you will find that the protests will be big,” he added. “People will not want him to feel welcome at all. And I think that goes very, very far across the board.”
Frost reported that “over 50,000 protesters” were expected to converge on Trafalgar Square when Trump travels to London.
