'Angry' Netanyahu orders ministers to attend Trump reception

uses classified Israeli intelligence to inform the Russians information they should have never received. Now he wants to blow off Ministers and Party leaders of Israel because he knows he is so out classed he can't be allowed to bumble through some kind of a reception, or state dinner, which is a normal outing for a foreign leader visiting.

Will he tell Bebe he likes with what he's done in the stolen Palestinian settlements. I'm sure The Chump will give him decorating advice.

2. Run on shampoo

Everyone has to wash his hair that day. They'd love to come, but you know how it is.
