Fox News’ Twitter Account Edits Out Trump Getting Laughed At During UN Speech





Washington Post senior political reporter Aaron Blake noted on Tuesday that Fox News shielded its 18 million Twitter followers from witnessing world leaders and diplomats at the UN general assembly in New York openly laughing at President Donald Trump after he claimed his administration had accomplished more than almost any other in U.S. history.

“Fox’s Twitter account clipped what Trump said immediately before AND immediately after the laughter,” Blake tweeted. “The laughter appears in neither clip.”



Here are the two Fox News clips Blake referenced in his tweets:

Here is an unedited version of the above clips showing the laughter:

Despite admitting that he “didn’t expect that reaction” from the audience, Trump on Tuesday attempted to claim that he intended to get laughs and that they were laughing with him, not at him.




Trump has long decried past U.S. leaders for showing weakness on the world stage. In 2014, he tweeted, “We need a President who isn’t a laughing stock to the entire World.”
