UN humiliates Trump over Jerusalem

General Assembly rules against US, declaring recognition of Israel capital ‘null and void’

Well, to be honest, it has no practical effect on reality. Trump will go his way and the rest of the world goes theirs. Couple of interesting points.

In a humiliating blow for Donald Trump on the world stage, the United Nations General Assembly has voted by 128 to nine to declare his controversial decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “null and void”.

This overwhelming vote after the security council voted against the man 14-1, so he had to have his UN stooge veto it.

Thirty-five countries, many in Africa and Latin America, abstained from the vote. […] Rwanda, Uganda, South Sudan, Malawi, and several Caribbean and Pacific island nations all abstained. Canada, Poland, Australia, and Mexico also joined them in sitting out the vote, in perhaps a nod to other political pressures from the US.

It leaves Trump diplomatically isolated… this after Mike Pence’s sycophantic tribute to Trump’s non-existent achievements:

Mike Pence says Donald Trump has ‘fulfilled miracles’ in gushing two-minute eulogy, as President looks on

Vice President Mike Pence has paid tribute to Donald Trump in a gushing two-minute monologue, thanking him for “fulfilling miracles” and spurring historic ”optimism”.

Mr Pence told the US President he had “restored American credibility on the world stage” as the former real estate mogul looked on approvingly.

Enough lies to make anyone gag. But there were lots more, especially his praise of Trump’s cuts of his own taxes and those of the fabulously wealthy, and painting them as cuts for the working and middle classes. Shows that lying is a peculiar quality of evangelical Christians, who persist in claiming to see things that aren’t there.
