The press is now criticizing President Trump over the fact that his name ‘Donald J. Trump’ has been scribed in a larger font than that of ‘Jerusalem, Israel’ on the ceremonial plaque at the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.

Really? Is there anything that these obsessed maniacs will not use to attack Trump?
Here come the blue checks…

To you, it's public service. To him, it's a branding opportunity. https://t.co/YcXdXJY1mU

To some, it is proof that everything Trump does is for himself (even though this deal was inked years ago):
Says it all. This wasn’t about support for Israel, it was about Trump’s ego.
And it was a bad decision.
And innocent people died. Were killed.
It’s an embarrassing and shameful day for both US and Israeli leadership. https://t.co/r2kuNE8v5y

Some complained of being ‘physically pained’ by the pictures:

Trump supporters found the snowflake-iness hilarious:
That’s all they got left, friends. Font sizes. https://t.co/8b0YLSYOnD

Of course, these same ‘reporters’ didn’t find time to report on the fact that Israelis having been out in their droves to express support for Trump.

Instead, the media primarily focused on blaming Trump for the riots in Gaza, attempting to link it to a decades old agreement on behalf of the US government to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

This headline is disgusting in every conceivable way https://t.co/sgzh0k7uYI

Somebody is a ghoul all right, but it's not Ivanka.
Looking at you, Daily News editors….

Yeah, nothing says “We’re approaching this and all our stories with open eyes and minds” like this kind of headline

‘Celebrities’ weighed in with their important and balanced views:
I’m glad Ivanka and Jared could take time away from their busy schedules of not being qualified to represent the US to go represent the US, and celebrate moving the capital in exchange for the adelson’s donations, while 50+ Palestinians have been killed.

Fifty-two people die in protest over moving American Embassy to Jerusalem. Thanks, asshole! Your uninformed and demented actions have consequences! Don’t you get it? Those people had families too!
— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) May 14, 2018
You lose the PR advantage on this one, #MrTrump, with those two images side be side, Ivanka and Jared yukking it up in Jerusalem while the Palestinians get shot at. Perfect, you moron.

If progressives spent 2 mins considering the implications of their positions on Gaza, etc they'd realize how condescending they are. Blaming the US for Hamas riots w/ human shields only makes sense if you think the Palestinians couldn't help but riot and had no individual agency. https://t.co/pb6TCy6u8j
