We’ve reached the point of the Trump presidency when members of the media are telling us about their “embarrassing” feelings.
Here is New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on President Trump’s appearance at the G7 Summit in Canada.
You know that embarrassing feeling when your toddler has a tantrum in public, and you have to apologize to neighbors? Americans feel that way: Our toddler has just had a tantrum at the G7 summit. Sorry, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Japan, Italy https://t.co/cjDEyu2due

Study the Obama years, when nothing ever happened to the U.S. that would be remotely considered embarrassing.
You know that embarrassing feeling when your angry, emo teenager keeps muttering, “I hate you, dad” while he hands $150b to the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism? We felt like that under Obama. https://t.co/SP9G3GW7jH

And for the (uncounted millionth) time, statements like this are how Trump got elected in 2016 and could easily win again in 2020.

And the millions of Americans who had seen their livelihoods and incomes slide under the G7 regime who voted for Trump are cheering wildly. The beltway set just doesn't understand this. https://t.co/YAU64z3zRF

Correct statement if you wrote "American elites." I suspect working class Americans are thrilled we have a President who doesn't need the fawning approval of multilateral globalists. Dayton over Davos… https://t.co/E4qJ7Kc5YJ

Even if you disagree with most everything the president does, the comment “our toddler just had a tantrum” is entirely too harsh. Embarrassing for the New York Times.
