The smile on the president's face faded as he listened to the prime minister's response. "Yeah," Trump interjected, gesturing toward a member of the White House press corps to ask a question.

The exact moment a fatuous, narcissistic gasbag learns that the people he thought were his best friends are just a lot better at being best friends with other people than he is, and starts to understand that maybe they were never really best friends at all.

Benji knows he has to work with Biden in a few months and things ain't looking as peachy as with Trump.

Trump, meanwhile, hoo-boy. I like with the Sudan-Israel announcement going nowhere. He thinks pandering like this will win Jewish votes and/or underline evangelicals (who he already owns), but, dude. Too little too late.

I find it unlikely that Trump is helping Middle East peace at all. The last thing he does is calm the waters. But whatevs.

Netanyahu was all gung ho for the GOP when Obama was in the WH.  He gladly stomped all OVER protocol at the time.

Netanyahu has some serious groveling to do.

Netanyahu has some serious charges he needs to be facing, and a sentence to serve. Protocols be damned. IIRC he has been found guilty and is now staying out prison only by dent of being in charge.

/ He can go break rocks.

The Democrats need to put Israel in their place. They won't, because they're 75% as awful about Israel as the Republicans are, but goddamn, people, they're an Apartheid state that basically the entire world hates and they're in violation of a horrifying large number of international laws. Stop giving them billions already. And extra goddamn fark the ADL.

Right! It is on the top of my list right now of political issues in America right now. Maybe I can get some new scents to those "Song of Sudan" incense sticks at my local Quik Stop.

He didn't start immediately being a dick after Obama was elected. He only did those things after he figured he had gotten all he could out of Obama and after Obama started making some minor demands out of him.

It's also important to consider that the majority of jews in America live in urban areas, which tend to be Democratic, and there is a non-trivial amount of jews who vote Democratic who may not particularly like what Bibi Netanyahu does, but do not hate him enough to throw Israel under the bus.

ahasp: Trump is a farking child.


Came here to say exactly this. I don't know how anyone can read this quote:

"Do you think Sleepy Joe could have made this deal, Bibi? Sleepy Joe? I think - do you think he would have made this deal somehow? I don't think so."

...and come to any other conclusion. It reads like a 5th grade bully trying to goad a friend of his into a schoolyard fight.

"Did you hear that Fred? How he just dissed you? Don't you think he's a dingus too? You should totally sock him right in the face. Do it, DO IT!"

Michael Cohen says that Trump speaks in code. When he says something like that, he's ordering someone to agree with him. If he says, "Isn't this the best hamberder you ever had?" He's really saying, "Say this is the best hamberder you ever had or else."

I'm 100% convinced that if he had a press conference right now where he pretended to bare his soul (lol) and "genuinely" own his failures, condemn his past actions, and reflect on how he will be a better president moving forward that he'd walk to victory.

We are that farking stupid.

But because a smart person came up with that idea, he won't do it.

A genie could appear and suggest reelection as one of the wishes, and Trump would end up with a Big Mac and 2 Diet Cokes.

Jews are not a significant portion of voters in the grand scheme of things. Muslims exist in the US, too, and their voice deserves to be heard--especially Palestinians, who are far more marginalized than both Israeli and American Jews are. If they want to supoirt Nazis, let them. We shouldn't be supporting a fascist ethnostate.

Too bad Trump never learned that people outside his inner circle aren't actually familiar with, nor can be counted on to adhere to, that particular 'code' of his.

It suggests to me that Netanyahu probably insulted Biden in private to butter up to Trump. Trump was stupid enough to think he might get Netanyahu to do it publicly too. But Netanyahu is smart enough to know that he doesn't gain anything by doing that.

I bet he's fired a few folks who came at him with that angle.
Doubling down on your derp no matter who you are is the easy path. It's weak and requires no growth to cross your arms, plant your feet, and shiat your pants.
Picking up the phone and opening up about how deeply you farked up and how wrong you were takes a mountain of courage.

It's why a politician's past actions/words are never "wrong" their stance merely later "evolved". No biatch you were wrong and it's okay to be wrong especially if you change and own your farkery.
