Chris Cuomo might have the day off, but Bill Weir was there to keep the flame of liberal bias alive at CNN . . .
Check out the video clip, as Weir sneeringly mocks countries voting with the United States against the UN Resolution condemning President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the embassy there.
Weir sarcastically describes as “big ones” the small countries voting with the US. As he reads off the list, someone can be heard to snicker, and Weir joins in, laughing in derision.
Weir also sounded sarcastic as he mentioned that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was holding a reception for countries that did not vote for the resolution [in addition to the nations voting against the resolution, there were 35 more that abstained.]
Weir described the countries invited as having shown “fealty” to the US. He thus maligned their independence, while implying that any right-minded nation would have sided with the likes of Libya, Sudan, Venezuela and Zimbabwe in voting for the resolution.
BILL WEIR: Let’s shift to the United Nations. Nikki Haley said we are taking names. You’re either with us or you’re against us when it comes to this vote condemning the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and a promise to move the embassy there as well.
Of the votes—I think we have the vote numbers. We can show the countries that sided with the United States. Big ones like Guatemala, Micronesia, Palau, Togo [Weir can be heard laughing in derision], in there with Israel and the United States. Whereas the vast majority, 128-9, in the vote went against that. Maybe they’re not voting against the United States per se. They think this is going to set back the peace process in the Middle East. But it’s telling when Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, some of our closest allies in Europe go the other way. She had a friendship reception for those who did show fealty there as well.
