I don’t like anyone featured in this story, including the paper reporting it. Somehow, it makes the cover memorable

Trump had been criticized for renting space for Gadhafi, and his organization issued a statement saying, “We have requested that the tenant occupying the property in Bedford, New York, remove the tent that was erected. They have complied with this request.”

Oh, and in his rambling speech that lasted 90 minutes., he called for UN to be moved to Lybia so he wouldn’t suffer jet lag when he comes, called the Security Council a terror council (oh, the irony!) attacking them for being permanent

Permanent is something for God only. We are not fools to give the power of veto to great powers so they can use us and treat us as second-class citizens.”

Ironically, the man in power for 40 years, wouldn’t mind if Obama also rules forever

“We Africans are happy, proud, that a son of Africans governs the United States of America,” the Libyan leader said. “This is a historic event. … This is a great thing.” “Obama is a glimpse in the darkness after four or eight years,” said Qadhafi, who referred to Obama as “my son.” “We are content and happy if Obama can stay forever as president of the United States.

And while on UN and Obama, an interesting take on his speech from the Telegraph

Needless to say, the loudest cheers from the gathering of world leaders came when he condemned the actions of a close US ally, Israel, in continuing to build settlements in the West Bank. You can always rely on attacks on the Israelis to generate the biggest roars of approval at any meeting of the United Nations, and Obama dutifully obliged.

Here’s today’s Daily News cleverly titled cover on the story

For Ahmadinajead’s speech see NYT – which I guess titles their piece ”

A More Conciliatory Ahmadinejad at the U.N.

simply because this time

he did not call for the complete destruction of the country, as he has in the past.”

The Daily News is more to the point

Khadafy is whacky, but Iran thug Ahmadinejad is the real threat

That Iran, which barraged peaceful protesters with clubs and bullets, is “one of the most democratic and progressive governments of the world.”

That his nation, which arms terrorists, “has been a main victim of terrorism.”

That a regime like Iran needs and deserves “equality” – wink wink, nuclear weapons – which, of course, it denies it’s pursuing

NY Metro joins in the fun with an atrocious pun
