Merkel is an amazing person, I respect her very much. I live in France and I think we have a lot to learn from Germany, that country did succeed at getting its economy a boost.

Merkel is being touted by some on the left as the new leader of the free world, but remember it was not long ago she had Jan Boehmermann locked up for making fun of Erdogan!

CNN and HBO are both owned by Time Warner, which was one of the top 10 donors to Hillary's campaign (do your own research) in 2016. Which makes John Oliver extremely biased in any news report. He is only a comedian anyways. Angela Merkel is destroying Europe with her immigration policies. She is the "Hillary" of Germany. Trump knows exactly who he was dealing with. Ask any German in 2017 if they like their PM.

side note Merkel has opened her borders and the refuges are Raping her citizens like crazy I Mean like Gang rapes they have been many occasions where they would open up their homes to them and get raped heck one guy got raped by a refugee by opening up his home while visiting her deceased love one and that's not even the crazy thing the crazy thing is that their LEFT and even some of the citizens that have been raped protest that the refugees are somehow the victims it's really crazy over there in Europe

It sounds awful, but I kind of enjoy watching our presidents fucking traumatize the German chancellor. Merkle cannot hide discomfort to save her life, and it's always a little fun to watch those kind of people squirm.

Dathotness4yaDathotness4ya (1 month ago)
I just wanted to say as an American to any Germans here after I have read this and other threads under this video, it just adds to how I more and more everyday am utterly ashamed to be American. I had a feeling that crime rates in Europe were lower than ours here in the U.S., but almost 25 times lower?!?!?!?! I know there are many factors that affect our crime rates like income inequality, racial segregation, and racial disparities, etc., but much of my shame is because I have a strong feeling that a huge *P A R T* of the reason for the lower European crime rates are due to the stance many European countries take with gun control and the right to own a gun compared to the U.S. And it's sad because I think it is just acceptable or normal for many Americans to hear about 4-5 different people being shot to death per day on the news in many metro American areas and now it has gotten to the point where it is just perfectly acceptable for 49 people to be shot in one night in my own city of Orlando, Florida and nothing to be done about it. So I just wanted to ask any Europeans, Canadians, Australians, etc. here to just tell me how your country deals with the right to own a gun. I feel like the U.S. is slowly heading to 3rd World status and doesn't even realize it. Indonesia now has universal healthcare before we do. I'm considering moving to Australia or Canada in the next decade.

"I'm gonna make america so great again, you won't believe! millions and millions of dollars. lets build a wall and make someone else pay for it - because thats how politicianism works, right?"
p.s.: i like his reaction. he has just as little respect for angela merkel, as most of germany has for him, so we're even on that. and now get the fuck out of our country...

As a German, I feel insulted by president Trumps behaviour towards Merkel. I don't know what I was thinking to expect some basic diplomacy or even decency from this man. Behaving towards our chancellor like that: it is a slap in the face for every German - it does not even matter whether you like Merkel or agree with her policy. And the joke about the wiretapping: it was mildly funny, yes, but you can make these kind of jokes when you are good buddies with someone. Which, of course, is not the case here and never will be.

"Last Week Tonight" here is excellent, as always. Thank you for bringing this up. You're brilliant the way you put the finger in the wound. Besides being informative, funny and engaging as well.

While I hardly agree with much of what Merkel is doing, of the two, she's a fucking angel, and this at least shows she stood up to him. So now he acts like a kindergarten idiot who refuse to shake hands with the one he was just fighting.
I'm sure he just found out that Germany is pretty much the frontline defense of the US... And now hes grumpy that she can actually demand and refuse xD

To the rest of the world, apologies for Trump's behavior. Just imagine, we have to witness it on a daily basis. Don't forget that almost 5 Mil. more people voted against him than for him in the election, and right now his approval rating is down to 35% and falling.

Do you, thinking people, really think, that this lack of handshake was by an accident or Trump's awkwardness? She wanted handshake, he did not. There is political reason for that behaviour and clear message to Merkels' investors.

Keyc94 lol so you're saying its your responsibility to give them money too... hahaha fuck you're so stupid lets bet EU will cease to exist in a couple of decades.... mate human lives whatever... you sounded like a true cuck. you don't accept them in, how bout you help them in the country they are in... create a sanctuary zone... im sure NATO can do that right? europe can provide food and other necessities too... but the thing with the refugee just like you said its fueled by economic reasons

Keyc94Keyc94 (1 month ago)
We live in one world, so it is in someway our own responsibility, i think we should send them back to africa because they are more as war refeguees they are economy refugees. But there are many people who dont think so. At some point we have to send them back because we cant help anymore... but the EU failed for a common aim... every state do what they want. i am agree that this situation has a bad conclusion at the moment, but just let them die in nowhere??? if the EU make clear that they send the refugees back no one comes. But that decision isnt make by any state so it is not only merkel guilty at this situation the whole EU make that decision.

"Leader of the free world. Meets Donald Trump"(Washington Post) Trump might have delivered the 3rd term to Merkel on that missing handshake. Sad story. I hate conservatives. Yet Merkel won my respect on that one. She is the true leader of the EU and she knows it.

Atm no real leader in France. UK falling apart Ditto. Yes Merkel is the leader of the EU. Yet as i said a "Cristian conservative" A breed im not on the best terms with. Destroying the broad middle class in Germany. Yet Donald just bought her one more term. By beeing an wierd little man. To say the least, Sanders could replace BOTH,

Frederik Høyrup
Why would you think that Merkel is the true leader of the EU?
She cannot even get the others to keep existing treaties.
She cannot even get small countries to take in some hundred illegal immigrants and some refugees.
The only thing she can do is throw away our hard earned tax money leaving her own citizens the poorest in the whole Eurozone as proven by the last two EZB- reports.

The right reaction to her arrogant behavior in the past when she thought she is in the position to give the schoolmaster
and admonsih the President of the Unites States to keep up democratic principles. And yes, she ruined Germany: as long
as i can see people churning the garbage can for returnable bottles whenever i leave the house there is no reason to
invite millions of migrants from all over the world with fake identities. We do have experience with uncontrolled immigration and it isn't good.

Well, I started out supporting your train of thought, but you lost me with your stance on guns. Read through the comments here in this comment section and you can plainly see how much lower crime rates are in Germany and across Europe as opposed to our country. My guess is that a huge PART of the reason for that is our insane right for everybody to carry a gun. It's eroding the safety of our country, we are just too conditioned and used to seeing the gun deaths on the 5:00 news to realize it. Germans would be horrified if they watched the 5:00 news of any of our metro areas for one week. And here in Orlando, we are still mourning the loss of 49 lives cut short in one night last June, just because of 1 crazy motherfucker with a semi-automatic gun. Without the gun, it probably might have been like 6-10............Think about it.

Jessica OudbierJessica Oudbier (1 month ago)
+Gruftkriecher a lot of his new policies directly affect me. I'm trying really hard no to believe that my own countrymen believe I'm not a human. But, I won't allow my hopeful optimism to turn into denial. A lot of people outside the US don't really understand how ingrained gun culture is. Even the liberals have guns. Never thought I'd say this, but, I'm glad I'm armed and trained. If history repeats itself, well, it will be bloody and quick. Hopefully enough so that we can end in a stand off or get this nonsense over with.

America is slowly turning their strongest allies away. European countries are already discussing how to survive without depending on US, like the European defense army they're trying to create and they might even try to get close with Russia in the near future if trump continues treating them like this. China and Iran, no comment and if he continues challenging China economically it won't hurt only the US it will hurt the global economy. Trade wars are the last thing we need right now.
