Dozens Killed in Gaza as Trump Promises "Lasting Peace"

Dozens Killed in Gaza as Trump Promises

"Today the United States officially broke with tradition and opened an embassy in Jerusalem". The Comedy Central host played video of Trump at a rally, where he told supporters that when he was told the cost of the embassy's move would be $1 billion, he stopped signing the executive order midsignature and crossed out his name with a few giant X's.

But, according to our ambassador, moving the embassy to Jerusalem sends a message to Israel "You are not alone", Colbert noted, adding, "It's true". There's a bunch of other people who live there, too.

"You can't make the blessing on every "kushi" you see - in America you see one every five minutes, so you make it only on a person with a white father and mother", the chief rabbi said."How do would you know?"

"Now, the president couldn't be there himself because, you know, the angry people, so instead, he sent Peace-Treaty Barbie and Collusion Ken", joked Colbert of Javanka. Even Saudi Arabia's King Salman, a fierce Trump ally and reliable consumer of American-made armaments, warned that Donald Trump and his son-in-law would be taking a "dangerous step. likely to inflame the passions of Muslims around the world".

The rest of Kushner's speech offered a mixture of calls for peace and praise for President Trump's bold decision to move the embassy - rhetoric that seemed jarring when held up in contrast to events on the ground in Gaza.

Except while those were Kushner's actual words, "The Late Show" was actually presenting the clip without audio as Colbert read the line in falsetto. "It's like saying, 'When the house is finally burned down, we will look back and remember that this journey started when we chose to install a deep fat fryer in the living room.' And Ivanka welcomed the crowd on behalf of her father by saying this".

And for anyone who thought that Ivanka would be an asset to the American people, Ward says that they're wrong because she is running her own agenda to promote her brand.

Ward also said during that interview that she was spending half her time in Washington DC looking at the "commercialization of the White House" and what she described has "horrifying kleptocracy". "I think we all get $130,000 now".
