Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron were caught on a hot mic at a private NATO reception at Buckingham Palace mocking and ridiculing Donald Trump. The microphone didn't catch the entire conversation, but British PM Johnson could be heard asking why Canadian PM Trudeau was late. Trudeau responded that "He [Trump] was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top...[unintelligible] you just watched his team's jaws drop to the floor." The three leaders then laughed out loud together.
