USA goes nuts for Jacinda Ardern after hilarious TV appearance

Colbert introduced her as the youngest female world leader and second elected leader in history to have a baby.

The new mum's powerful speech comes just days after she made history as the first world leader to attend the United Nations general assembly meeting with her three-month-old baby and partner Clarke Gayford in tow.

Jacinda was pictured cuddling up to her baby before she spoke at the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit.

Ardern joked that everyone was admiring her partner Clarke Gayford and not Neve.

Ardern was among a growing "club" of world leaders who have taken a stand against Trump in their defence of multilateralism and rejection of his world view.

Speaking to New Zealand media in NY after, Ardern was asked if her speech was intended as a response to the one given by United States President Donald Trump two days earlier.

Mr Colbert then said "and the first laugh?" to which Ms Ardern said "the first laugh was a spontaneous murmur. amongst themselves".

She said the president said "I didn't expect that response" when people began to laugh which prompted the audience of dignitaries to "laugh with him".

Colbert praised the PM for her skillfully worded reply and commented on how her response suggested a war between the U.S. and NZ was highly unlikely.

'I'm surprised no one leapt on it at that point because it looked like a weapon, ' she said.

She then went on to say that there was a "little laugh" in response to Trump's claim, at which point the USA president said, "I didn't expect that response".

When asked whether this was true, Ardern smiled and asked Colbert if he was "trying to create a diplomatic incident".

"If I could distil it down into one concept that we are pursuing in New Zealand it is simple and it is this".

She said she didn't join in but she "observed".

"It makes us sound like a health product".

"I do find it slightly offensive that everyone thinks that every New Zealander starred in either Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit", Ardern said.

Before the show Ardern posted a Facebook live video from the green room to tell New Zealand about her day -she attended a trade meeting with Canada and Chile, and two speaking engagements.

"Some of us auditioned but weren't successful, ok?"

New Zealand's unique view and position in the world started long before any particular leader, she said.

"Which I haven't quite finished yet and I need to lock that down tonight".
