It's not the laughing that worries me. My fear is that we and the world will be crying before it's done.

Donald Trump is the best thing for comedians and cartoonists that has come on the world stage for many, many years.

Liberals hate he defends Israel.


Actually, we hate that he BLINDLY defends Israel.

But, please make the case for defending Israel. Make the case that argues why we should recognize moving the capital to Jerusalem. Make the case against the Palestinian people. We want to hear your logic and thinking on this.

The media is on him 90 percen t negitive.

It's that way because he gives them good reason to be so.

You're incredibly wrong about that... most liberals are big Israel supporters... it's only the few of us with objectivity who recognize what Israel has become: a colonial occupying power.

I tried to drink and laugh at the same time. Not a good idea, but the triple oxymoron of bobbys, thinking and logic just hit my funny muscle :d

I can relate, but my unintended reaction to sudden Bilge-inspired mirth at an inopportune time is to spray tea over my keyboard. I've had strong tea in my nose before, and due to that have learned to laugh out loud, even when alone in my office. Sometimes I get odd glances from my wife for this.

funny how “the world” is full of liberals. Bobbys, Turkey’s president was Donalds authoritarian heart throb for a bit and he’s totally against Trumps Jeruselum shenanigans. At what point will you consider that the terms liberals and conservatives don’t describe everything going on in the US or the larger place the US is just a part of?

Protesters have once again poured on to the streets of several international cities in a show of solidarity with the Palestinians, condemning a US decision to officially recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Eleven days after US President Donald Trump's move, mass rallies were held on Sunday in Indonesia, Turkey and Pakistan.

The biggest demonstration took place in Indonesia's capital, Jakarta, where an estimated 80,000 protesters rallied outside the US embassy.

CNN)Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he hopes one day to open a Turkish embassy in Jerusalem, ahead of a possible UN vote Monday which seeks to nullify the US decision to recognize the city as Israel's capital.
...
Erdogan's speech came after an emergency meeting of the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation last week recognized East Jerusalem as the occupied capital of a Palestinian state.
The decision came in response to US President Donald Trump's promise to move Washington's embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and recognize the city as Israel's capital.

There have been violent clashes near the US embassy in Lebanon, in the latest protest against President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Security forces fired tear gas and water cannon to force back flag-waving protesters close to the embassy complex north of the capital, Beirut.
Overnight the Arab League condemned the US decision.
It said the US could not now be relied upon as a broker of Middle East peace.
The protesters threw stones and set fires in the street close to the embassy in the Awkar district.
The security forces had barricaded the main road leading to the large complex.

Me too, it could all end in tears and a few very big bangs if Donald get's his knickers in a knot once too often.

From one of my favorite CBC columnists Neil MacDonald after being in the hospital and taking a break from seeing the news:

"But reading about Donald Trump, especially after an enriching time-out, is like what I imagine drinking used deep-fryer oil must be: you're bloated, then nauseated, then reaching for some sort of colonic."

Indonesians are bad guys? Who are these bad guys?
