It's a sad commentary on today's political environment that when I heard the news that Obama had betrayed Israel at the United Nations, my first that was: Of course he did.
Has a more petulant, self-obsessed man ever sat in the White House?
On the face of it, the resolution means little. It is yet another example 0f the UN's ineffectiveness, hypocrisy and hatred for Israel's amazing success. The military balance of power in the region is unchanged from what it was before the resolution passed.
The deed - like so many committed by this administration - was purely symbolic. It was a giant middle finger at Israel and its government.
The irony here is that the Democrat spin machine has spent the last few weeks trying sell the myth that Trump is the avatar of the anti-Semitic right. Trump was going to let the neo-Nazis into the White House!
And yet it was Obama who took the unprecedented step of abandoning Israel at the UN.
The Trumpening is really about restoring clarity to American politics. For too long the lies of both parties have blinded the electorate to what was really going on.
Consider that only a few days ago, UN Ambassador Samantha Powers offered another ineffectual speech, chastising Russia, Syria and Iran for the fall of Aleppo. Go ahead and watch as the tears glisten in her eyes as she plaintively asks if they have any sense of shame.
The Obama administration has proven powerless to stop atrocities and crimes against humanity. So what does it do? Give a free democracy and ally the back of its hand.
It is a fitting end to a pathetic administration.
