Europe is Laughing at Trump, Video by Video: Every Second Counts

It started with the Netherlands: ""We totally understand it's going to be America First — But can we just say 'The Netherlands Second?'" a Dutch TV show asked, adding in a Donald Trump-cadenced voice, "We speak Dutch. It's the best language in all of Europe. We've got all the best words. All the other languages? Failed. Danish? Total disaster."

The video went viral, with YouTube currently clocking in at more than 17 million views.

The Swiss response soon followed: "We are not flat, like for example, the Netherlands. Total disaster," the cheeky and inuendo-filled video intones in Trumpian tones. "Like the KKK we also like to ride on horses and burn things."

As a Dane, my favorite is Denmark's response, also using the Trumpified vocal talents of Shaun Streeter. "We know you like golden showers, excuse me, golden towers, and we  have one, the golden tower in Tivoli Gardens," and offering to turn its windpower to oil.

Lithuania, Portugal and Germany have all weighed in as well, and you can see all the videos at everysecondcounts.eu.

If you are laughing at Trump, Europe is laughing with you. If you are horrified by Trump, well, Europe is horrified too.
