Laughing at the world’s most powerful man is laughing at the world’s most powerful nation. The reason for the laughter, as is reported in this Washington Post article, is no laughing matter; yet the laughter is entirely warranted.
In the work I do in organizational dynamics, I have found that when a leader loses the respect of those he or she is responsible for, in most cases, employees making fun of them (gallows humour) is their only outlet.
Bully bosses fear being made fun of and laughed at because it diminishes their stature and power. KEEP LAUGHING WORLD!
