In an opinion piece for CNN, historian Julian Zelizer expressed his dismay at a video clip from the G20 summit in Buenos Aires. In it, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman are laughing as they exchange a robust high five. The cringe-inducing video draws its comedy from Americans' fears and concerns. Why were they laughing? What's causing President Trump's silence when it comes to their behavior? If Trump faced fewer questions about his own presidency, he would be able to stand firm against their abhorrent behavior. Instead, Zelizer concludes, we just see them laughing.
