Trump's UN Ambassador Is Throwing The Most Petty Party Ever

You know who's not invited to the party? The UK, Japan, and France. But that's okay, Togo is set to bring the noise.

Thursday wasn't exactly a fun day for US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley. Despite her best efforts, 128 countries voted in favor of a UN resolution condemning the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

For the record, there are only 193 countries that are members of the UN General Assembly. We're short on mathematicians right now, but that seems like a lot of support for the resolution.

After the vote, Haley tweeted out a shoutout to the ride-or-die real friends of the US, the eight — yes, eight — who voted against the resolution, the 35 who abstained, and everyone else who just kinda wandered off instead of voting.

We appreciate these countries for not falling to the irresponsible ways of the @UN:

Of that list, only Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, and Togo actually did the thing and voted "no" on the resolution.
