The Israeli Embassy’s Insane Obama Trip Video

It may or may not include the theme to  the ‘Golden Girls’

Print Email

We had a wild wintry storm last night and when I awoke today, the video below was the first thing I saw when I hopped on the internets. Needless to say, I’m a little confused right now, but I’m working through a broad range of feelings, a few of which I’ll share:

• I firmly oppose state-sponsored animation.

• In very inchoate, tough-to-articulate ways, this video is absolutely amazing.

• This video is also almost as unsettling as the ECI Robocalls, which featured doctored clips of President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu seeming to argue with each other.

• Appropriating the Golden Girls theme song is a dicey move. It may pay dividends in Florida, but the younger set may revolt.

• I was hoping for a scene featuring President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu running through a dandelion field, splitting a bag of bamba, and rolling a bum on Allenby Street for some falafel money.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

Pretty impressive cut-and-paste capabilities that embassy staff has! But what does it mean?

After reading and seeing all the inanities on Tablet, the Embassy became confused and thought this would also be good.

Just wow……
