President Joe Biden has announced that he’s traveling to Israel on Wednesday, in a clear sign of American leadership on the world stage. It’s how you ensure America’s interests abroad at a time when its ally Israel is under attack, and it’s how you exert pressure on a corrupt leader like Netanyahu.
Meanwhile House Republicans are busy hurling personal insults at each other through the media, as they continue to squabble over their own side’s lack of leadership. Then there’s Donald Trump, who’s slurring his words, whining about how wars are “boring,” and at one point on Monday tried and failed to read the word “Christmas” off the teleprompter.
So here we are, with the study in contrast more vivid than ever. President Biden is leading the way. Trump and his Republican cohorts are a joke. What more really needs to be said?
