Ever since his irruption in politics, the erratic – to use only one adjective – behavior of US President Donald Trump has basically been writing the jokes of the main American talk shows. This weekend, Trump was in Buenos Aires for the G20 Leaders Summit and, predictably, was the protagonist of an episode that made it to the recaps of the most prominent shows in the northern country. In this case, Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers had a heyday the moment when President Trump lumbered off the stage in the middle of a photoshoot with Argentine President Mauricio Macri and was caught by a hot mic muttering “get me out of here.”

But that was not the only event worthy of a Youtube clip.

But that’s okay,” he said.
