You’d be forgiven for being in a shitty mood on Tuesday morning.
After all, someone decided killing children at a concert was the best way to spend their Monday night and it’s looking more and more like Donald Trump is guilty as sin when it comes to colluding with the Kremlin.
Fortunately, while Trump does indeed “taketh away” in terms of our faith in the sanctity of America’s democratic institutions, he also “giveth back” in the form of lightening the mood with sheer stupidity.
Watch below as the leader of the free world tells a room full of Israelis in Israel that he “just got back from the Middle East“…
Oh man, watch Israeli ambassador Ron Dermer (on right couch) react when Trump says—in Israel—"We just got back from the Middle East." pic.twitter.com/x7nb4uvqpR

And Ted Lieu – who tried his best to help Trump along on his first overseas tour by penning a handy cheat sheet – was quick to pop up with the shade…
As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I can confirm on the record that Israel is in the Middle East. https://t.co/7Uo2zBOcYm
