A reception was held at Buckingham Palace last night for leaders of the G7, and all seemed very regal and royal. But cameras caught two instances of Donald Trump being openly dissed.
The first came when microphones caught a handful of world leaders openly mocking Donald Trump. They appeared to be laughing about Donald Trump’s rambling press conferences before their bi-lateral media appearances. At one point Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau remarked, “you just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.” French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson weigh in as well. It was caught on video by the outlet CBC.

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins reports, “After video surfaced that appeared to show the French, Canadian and British leaders mocking his long q&a sessions yesterday, Trump says his scheduled press conference is off and he’ll go directly to Washington after his meetings instead.”

There’s also another video making the rounds that appears to show a member of the Royal Family standing to the side during a receiving line with the Queen. Speculation is that she was trying to avoid shaking hands with Trump.
