Trump doesn’t have the guts to criticize Israel, so he’s all over Cuba like a cheap suit

“The deep state demands that I be a hypocrite, and so a hypocrite I will be.” — This appears to be the credo that Donald Trump, who promised to drain the swamp but never did, now lives by. The latest example? Cuba.
[ Ed. note – Iranians turned out in mass today to mourn the victims of Wednesday’s terrorist attacks in Tehran. At least 17 people were killed and 50 injured as terrorists stormed the Iranian Parliament as well as the shrine of Sayyid Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the 1979 Iranian revolution. Chants among today’s crowd reportedly included “Death to Saudi Arabia” and “Death to America.” In addition to the video above, the following photo was also snapped at the event:
Trump, along with his wife and daughter, have visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem, with the president sporting a Jewish yarmulke–this as Palestinians prisoners are on day 36 of a hunger strike and as people throughout the occupied territories held a general strike in solidarity with the prisoners.
In Manger Square in Bethlehem, protestors gathered to protest Trump, who is scheduled to make a stop there tomorrow.
Back during the campaign Trump talked about building a wall along the US-Mexico border to control the flow of illegal immigrants. Now it appears that Trump’s Agriculture Secretary, Sonny Perdue, has reached the conclusion that illegal immigrants, at least some, are needed after all–to work as farm laborers.

There remains one good thing to say about Donald Trump: he is not Hillary. The boneheaded cruise missile attack in Syria would have occurred even earlier under President Rodham Clinton and there would undoubtedly be no-fly and safe zones already in place. Oh, and Ukraine and Georgia would be negotiating their entries into NATO to make sure that old Vlad Putin would be put on notice and understand that the days of namby-pamby jaw-jaw-jaw that characterized the Obama Administration are now ancient history.
Sean Spicer apologizes for “Hitler” remark during interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN
It has been reported that after the flap erupted over his offhand reference to Hitler, White House spokesman Sean Spicer made a personal phone call to Sheldon Adelson to apologize.
Press conference held today…Trump called Assad a “butcher,” said US-Russia relations “may be at an all-time low,” and insisted it’s “probably unlikely” Syria could have launched the chemical attack it has been accused of carrying out without Russian knowledge. An investigation as to whether Russia had prior knowledge or not is being conducted by General “Mad Dog” Mattis. We can probably guess how that’s going to turn out.
Trump also says NATO is not obsolete, though of course back during the campaign he said it was. He also had campaigned on wanting better relations with Russia, and once even urged Obama to stay out of Syria, but now he is seemingly trying to provoke an all-out war. We can speculate endlessly on the “why” of it all (is Trump being blackmailed, is he trying to avoid getting impeached, was he a deep-state operative all along?), but the bottom line is he has made almost a complete 180 degree turn.
