    True to his campaign promise and going against international opinion, Donald Trump did a really stupid thing -- he designated Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel and will initiate plans to eventually move the US embassy to Jerusalem.

    Pundits are scratching their heads on why Trump would do such a provocative move now. They are all over the place, but I can put it down to three:

    1) Christian evangelical votes and money

    2) Shelden Adelesen money.

    3) Obama was against it.

    Trump said he did it because it was in America's best interests. He should have qualified that statement to say it was in his best interests in further solidifying his base of supporters. Shelden Adelsen alone should be worth several million in campaign donations.

    Frankly I don't think Trump knows shit about the history and emotions around the delicate peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. He only looks at situations from the standpoint of his own selfish motives.

    Yes, Schmidt; he's a racist and Muslim hater and has a sweet son in law who's super Jewish. So what do you expect? ; "brains" no way.

    In Amsterdam they attacked an Jewish restaurant and smashed all the windows. Thanks Trump; the world will reward you for being an uneducated asshole.

    I just cannot get my head around Trump's action on this and other issues. Thinking about his mental state, I wonder if he takes some kind of sadistic delight in causing division and promoting hate. Certainly he should have known that people will die in protesting and that shops, embassies, schools, etc. worldwide will be under attack. Innocent people are going to die.

    Will Trump sit back and enjoy watching the carnage knowing that he caused it all to happen...not unlike a firebug lighting a building on fire and then watching it burn? This is insane.

    And Trump has the gall to say he was acting in the best interests of the United States, and now says the USA will be an honest broker not taking sides. How dumb does he think people are?

    Of course he knows very well what he is doing, he lavishes in discourse and loves pitting people against people, I believe he really enjoys getting people pissed off at one another. He is well defined in this thread, he is an asshole.

    Today's edition of Al Jazeera had a total of TEN stories related to the move by our dumbkopf in chief:

    I would really like to get through an entire day without being reminded how stupid Trump is, but I don't think that's realistic.

    However, now that Robert Mueller has issued subpoenas to Deutschbank, Trump's demise may be closer than we think.

    Related to your last line; the club of "idiots" ( GOP, FOX, Breitbard etc) are attacking now the Mueller investigation in full force. Of course Trump instigated this with a mental smile. What a country; history books will be sold as hotcakes by some survivors over about 5 years. Yes this has become the most stupid country in the world, for sure.

    MSM: reports of violent clashes. Trump knew exactly what he was doing. He can't be removed from office fast enough for me. Yesterday would have been fine.

    If he stirs it and makes a mess... I seriously hope it specifically hits him in a very negative way. He is troubled and accountability will find him in due time.

    Steve Benson's cartoon in yesterday's Arizona Republic sums up the situation in Jerusalem perfectly:

    What is so wrong with a nation naming it's own capital city, doesn't every nation have that right.
