U.S. comedians mock Jerusalem embassy opening

U.S. comedians mock Jerusalem embassy opening

Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, who represents Israel's Sephardic Jews of Middle Eastern and North African descent reportedly blessed the couple before they attended the opening of the new USA embassy in Jerusalem Monday, which sparked criticism worldwide.

A striking image shows just how different two scenes were on Monday in the Middle East.

Over on The Daily Show, Trevor Noah had fun with an old clip of Trump at a time when he briefly considered not moving the embassy to Jerusalem.

"Late Night" host Stephen Colbert ripped into first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband and special adviser to the president Jared Kushner after the power couple officiated the ceremony to open the new USA embassy in Jerusalem Monday.

He also couldn't help but poke fun at Ivanka Trump, who tripped up during a welcoming statement and pronounced "United States of America" as "United States on America".

On NBC, Seth Meyers also tore into Kushner's unique speechifying style on Monday night's broadcast.

Warriors shoot down Rockets in game one
The Rockets rely far more heavily on isolations than any other team in the league in large part because of Harden's effectiveness. While Curry is nowhere close to a turnstile on the defensive end, however, he is nowhere close to CP3 on that end of the floor.

"As we have seen from the protests of the last month and even today, those provoking violence are part of the problem, and not part of the solution", Kushner said.

While reporting on the violence that erupted today on the Gaza-Israel border following protests at the U.S. opening its embassy in Jerusalem, the SABC's gaffes in its Monday night coverage suggested that staff may be working a bit too much overtime. Reports indicate that Israeli forces used tear gas and possibly sniper fire against the demonstrators.

The White House said that terrorist group Hamas "bears responsibility" for the violence, which left at least 58 dead and more than 2,700 injured.

It was the bloodiest day in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since a 2014 Gaza war.

Meanwhile, this week marks the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or "catastrophe" in Arabic, which commemorates Palestinian displacement following the Israeli declaration of independence in 1948.
