The Hill reports:
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s behavior in a viral video in which he was seen gossiping about President Trump “childish,” but downplayed any affect it might have on the relationship between the two countries.
“I imagine the relationship will be the same, because at least President Trump is honest when he’s calling out a foreign leader and the way he feels about them when they’re not paying their dues to NATO,” Conway said on “Fox & Friends.”
“I thought it was a very childish, churlish exchange, but they were hardly denouncing the president’s policies,” she added. “People looked at this as they usually do on social media with outsized attention.”

NATO summit summary: @realDonaldTrump acts like a lunatic, other NATO leaders talk about his lunacy, and then he gets mad and runs home like a lunatic.
