Tapper Grills Nikki Haley: How Does Jerusalem Decision Move the Peace Process Forward?

Last week, President Donald Trump announced that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and America would begin the process of moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This decision by the president has resulted in several days of protests in the Middle East. Meanwhile, US allies have criticized the announcement. During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union this morning, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley was grilled by host Jake Tapper on the move, with the CNN anchor pressing her to explain how exactly this move helps the peace process between Palestinians and Israel. Haley noted at the beginning of the interview that previous presidents didn’t have the courage to listen to the will of the American people but Trump did. She added that while people may be upset with the decision, it is only because “courage causes that” and she Continue reading "Tapper Grills Nikki Haley: How Does Jerusalem Decision Move the Peace Process Forward?"

#DentureDonald Dominates Twitter After The Daily Show Urges Its Viewers ‘Not’ To Tweet It

The Daily Show host clarified that there’s “no shame” in having dentures, but “there is shame in Donald Trump wearing dentures” because he’s “vain as hell.” “Can you imagine how he would feel if people started tweeting #DentureDonald?” Noah asked his viewers. He then urged them not to do it because Trump is “so sensitive.” Of course, Twitter ran with it.

Colbert on Trump Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital: ‘He Couldn’t Recognize It On a Map’

On Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert addressed President Trump‘s announcement recognizing Jersalem as Israel’s capital and his plans to move the US embassy there in the near future. “Yes, he recognized it in a speech, but I’m still pretty sure he couldn’t recognize it… on a map,” Colbert quipped. The Late Show host explained the holiness of Jerusalem and how “every inch” is disputed between Israelis and Palestinians that they had to “draw a line down the middle of a six-piece Chicken McNuggets at the Jerusalem McDonalds” and that they’re “still fighting over the Gaza Chicken Strip.” He poked fun at Trump’s remarks how acknowledging Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a “recognition of reality.” “Why start now?” Colbert reacted.

We Report You Decide: Did Trump’s Dentures Almost Fall Out During His Big Israel Speech?

President Donald Trump just made remarks clarifying the White House’s position on Israel, officially recognizing Jerusalem as the country’s capital and pledging to move America’s embassy from Tel Aviv to the Holy City in the near future. This was an important and controversial move, with long-lasting implications on the geopolitical stage. But, uh, what the heck was going on with Trump’s speech pattern? He began seemingly slurring his words toward the end of his remarks. In particular at the very end, it was quite noticeable. Was he on drugs? Was he drunk on Big Macs? Tired? Did he just really miss Twitter? It looks like the answer is none of these things. A close Mediaite examination of the Continue reading "We Report You Decide: Did Trump’s Dentures Almost Fall Out During His Big Israel Speech?"

WATCH LIVE NOW: President Trump Gives Remarks on Controversial Jerusalem Decision

President Donald Trump is set to deliver remarks today at 1:00 p.m. EST, clarifying his administration’s apparent plans to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel. This move will reverse decades of American foreign policy, with Trump also expected to announce that we will be moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump’s forthcoming announcement, which he repeatedly promised on the campaign trail, has drawn criticism from Arab and European leaders, along with Pope Francis, who warned that it could unleash a wave of violence in the region. John O. Brennan, former CIA director, wrote in a statement that the move was “reckless” and could “damage U.S. interests in the Middle East for years to come and will make the region more volatile.” Others, however, have embraced the decision, particularly pro-Israel Americans and Israel itself. Palestine, not so much. The embassy move may take Continue reading "WATCH LIVE NOW: President Trump Gives Remarks on Controversial Jerusalem Decision"

Al Jazeera Paints Palestinian Gunmen As The Victims in Latest Terrorist Attack in Israel (Again)

Early Friday morning, three Palestinian terrorists raided Jerusalem’s Old City. Israeli police quickly responded, killing the three gunmen. Three Israelis were reportedly injured. However, if you only got your news from Al Jazeera, you’d hear a different story: Of course, even they have to admit in the article that the Palestinians that were killed in the attack just so happened to be the gunmen, but not before writing this as their sub-headline:
“Israeli police shoot dead three Palestinian subjects after they allegedly open fire on Israelis near Al Aqsa compound.”
“Allegedly,” as if there’s room to debate that these Palestinian terrorists didn’t shoot up the Old City. This isn’t the first time that Al Jazeera tried spinning a terrorist attack to make Palestinians as the Continue reading "Al Jazeera Paints Palestinian Gunmen As The Victims in Latest Terrorist Attack in Israel (Again)"

BREAKING: President Trump Breaks Campaign Promise, Will Keep Israel Embassy in Tel Aviv

Trump Israel President Donald Trump granted a six-month waiver on a law requiring that the U.S. embassy in Israel be moved to Jerusalem, thus breaking a promise from his 2016 presidential campaign. The Associated Press spotlighted the development in a Thursday report. The press agency noted that “Trump was facing a Thursday deadline to renew the waiver or see the State Department lose half its funding for its overseas facilities. Presidents of both parties have renewed the waiver every six months for years.” There had been speculation surrounding the possible move of the American embassy for months. Three days after the President Trump’s inauguration, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough cited an anonymous source and reported that the diplomatic post would not be immediately moved as promised. Israeli news outlets had reported in early May that Mr. Trump would sign the six-month waver, and that “senior U.S. sources had informed the Israeli Continue reading "BREAKING: President Trump Breaks Campaign Promise, Will Keep Israel Embassy in Tel Aviv"
