Colbert Slams Ivanka and Jared, ‘Peace-Treaty Barbie and Collusion Ken,’ for Jerusalem Embassy Trip [VIDEO]

President Donald Trump sent his daughter and son-in-law to Jerusalem on Monday for the opening of the relocated US Embassy there.

Moving the embassy’s location from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which broke with decades of diplomatic tradition, has prompted peaceful protests against the decision from Palestinians, but Israeli troops shot and killed at least 58 protesters while some 2,700 others were injured.

The demonstrations were not mentioned during the embassy ceremony, but many people took to social media to call out White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kusher for celebrating the opening in the wake of such deadly violence:

On Monday’s Late Show, host Stephen Colbert said that Trump has been “futzing in the Middle East, opening the US embassy in Jerusalem,” Colbert joked. “Now we’ve just got to destabilize Antarctica, and we’ll have Global Crisis Bingo.”

He continued,

In response to moving the embassy, deadly violence has broken out, but according to the US ambassador to Israel, the act of moving the embassy sends the message to Israel that “You are not alone.”

It’s true. Israel is not alone. There’s a bunch of other people who live there too. They’re the angry ones. Instead, he sent Peace Treaty Barbie and Collusion Ken.

He then played a clip of Kushner speaking, with Colbert overdubbing his voice to say,

When there is peace in this region, we will look back upon this day and remember that the journey to peace started with a strong America recognizing the truth.

The New York Daily News tore into Trump and first daughter Ivanka on is Tuesday morning cover:

The News called her “Daddy’s Little Ghoul” for being “all smiles” at the embassy while the violence was occurring in Gaza.
