As Twitchy told you yesterday, 128 countries at the U.N. General Assembly voted to condemn the United States for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Many lefties seem to think that “stinging rebuke” is supposed to make us feel bad, because, as Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif put it, we’re guilty of “thuggish intimidation.”
But are all the countries who are so disgusted by our support for Israel really in any position to pass moral judgment? Jake Tapper doesn’t seem to think so — and yesterday on “The Lead,” he took them to task for their flaming hypocrisy:
Among the 128 countries that voted in favor of the UN resolution condemning the US decision to move the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem were "some countries with some rather questionable records of their own," says CNN's @jaketapper https://t.co/P3djp0ExQi pic.twitter.com/ZvDnnzsSoK
