Every Second Counts!

Ever wonder what the rest of the world may be thinking of us these days? Well the suspense is finally over! Late night comedy shows all over Europe are racing to get on the newly created Every Second Counts website – a place where European comedians attempt to convince Trump that their country deserves second place, at the very least. Dutch late night comedy got the entire thing going with “The Netherlands Second,” a parody of Trump’s speech insisting “America is going to be first.” Last night I came across the clip “Switzerland Second” and thought that it was a bit of humor that the Swiss had come up with on their own. This evening I noticed “Every Second Counts” stuff from other countries and on several different websites. This wave of European laughter seems to be getting louder every evening and just might end up going viral – some of it, anyhow. So far, Germany has the funniest one out there – the Germans can be brutal, man - but the Swiss and the Dutch versions aren’t too shabby either. If you want to see more, the Huffington Post is keeping track of the videos as they are released.

A compliation

Very funny!

I'm encouraged that our friends around the world see clearly the empty demagoguery and show their dismissive reactions with these mockery essential.

Lithuania's entry for third is very good, I hear ....from the various Lithuanian-descended-Americans I know..... (which is weirdly quite a few)

Nice catch, monster! Lithuania's contribution is very funny. When I watched it on YouTube just now, it had close to two million views so far. Some of my favorite reasons Lithuania should be number 3 (they say they're going for the bronze):

Hannibal Lecture was Lithuanian. Terrific guy! Great table manners!

We were the first European country to impeach our president because he was too friendly with Russia - really friendly guy - it was unprecedented. Impeachment was huge. Good TV ratings - tremendous ratings! But bad for business. We won't let Democrats put in you in that same spot if you don't let Putin into our country...

Europe is coming to your aid, America - hang in there!

I wonder if anyone is going to inform Trump that he has become the butt of the joke in almost every country in Europe?

I wish our British friends would join in the fun, despite Brexit. After all, the Swiss got in on it and they don't belong to the EU. These are strange times indeed. Thank god Lithuania is coming to our aid. Otherwise we might be done for.
