Granted, campaign rallies or the seemingly never ending MAGA rallies President Donald Trump has held since before his election are not known for the accuracy of information imparted.
The rhetoric is supposed to be thick and biased to promote the candidate the rally is for.
And Trump—being notoriously braggadocious—tends to embellish bigly at his MAGA rallies.
Or he just completely ignores reality in favor of his own version of the world. At his recent MAGA rally in Hershey, Pennsylvania he stayed true to form as he claimed the world once mocked and laughed at the United States, but now that he's in charge, no one laughs at the USA any longer.
While his initial claim is dubious at best, his latter claim of no one laughing at or mocking the USA under Trump must not include not mocking or laughing at the President himself.
Because this just happened and prompted a Trump pout and early departure from the latest gathering of world leaders.

The NATO leaders mocking him was hardly the first time Trump was a laughingstock on a world stage.
There was his United Nations appearance as well.

It was long rumored that world leaders considered Trump a joke and openly mocked him, but it wasn't until recently that it was confirmed on video.
But the POTUS told his followers a very different version of reality to applause and cheers. In George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984, Orwell wrote:
"The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears."
In 2020, will voters believe their own eyes and ears, or what they're told at a MAGA rally?
