This is not a laughing matter: The world thinks we're hilariously stupid - dangerously so. And Donald Trump is to blame. Not since Sarah Palin, not since Michele Bachman, not since Dan Quayle (!!) has anyone rocked the American political scene with so much hilarity - the laughter pointed directly at us by almost every other country in the world. Of course, The Donald is the very cartoon of the boorish, arrogant, bigoted American, the persona dismissed by foreign countries as mere entertainment and not worth a second thought as far as substance. We knew all of that from the time Trump announced his candidacy. We expected him to be a form of entertainment. But not quite so much at America's expense.
