“AM Joy” host Joy Reid sat in for Lawrence O’Donnell on Thursday’s edition of “The Last Word,” where she mocked President Donald Trump and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley for threatening the U.N. General Assembly in vain about moving the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
On Tuesday, Haley admonished United Nations delegates to remember that the U.S. would be “taking names” of countries that did not support a resolution declare Jerusalem the capital.
“And we can sum up the General Assembly’s response to that threat in two words,” Reid said before playing the famous clip of rapper Ice Cube from the film “Friday,” in which he says, “Bye, Felicia.”
“That is the two-line classic dis from the movie, ‘Friday,'” Reid explained, “denoting when your threats are meaningless because people are just DONE with you.”
The resolution failed by a massive margin, with even Canada voting against so as not to look like a U.S. “puppet.”
CNN counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd said that this marks a low point for the U.S. on the global stage.
“Twenty-eight countries said we’re a bunch of idiots,” Mudd said. “I think the rest of the world is laughing at us.”
“(T)his is diplomatic prostitution,” he said. “We’re telling people unless you vote with us, we’re not going to give you money, and if your heart doesn’t agree with American policies, we’re not going to support you in terms of U.S. aid.”
