A bunch of people were thrilled when Trump was addressing the UN

and a bunch of the assembled kleptocrats, dictators, and representatives of dictators laughed.

Slight problem: to a helluva lot of people, having the UN as an enemy is a mark of doing good stuff.  Because the people they like...
“The President's triumphant moment was marred in the first minute when he was met by laughter – at his expense,” the Post continued. 

Oh, how dreadful. Imagine being mocked by the UN. If only Trump was the sort of person the UN admired. Like, for example, Uganda’s psychotic Idi Amin, whose 1975 speech at the UN denouncing the “Zionist-US conspiracy" was met with a standing ovation. 

Following that charming occasion, then-UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim held a public dinner in Amin's honour. Hopefully there were more people at the tables than on the plates.
