    Currently it is more than half way thru Trump’s term.

    So what happened to Trump and Kushner’s much publicized peace plan?

    I thought they were going to present it over a year ago?

    I hadn’t seen him in color but saw him in a black and white still photo with President Trump.

    In that shot , Ted Cruz, in the garb reminded me of a young Fidel Castro in his garb of the time.

    He definitely didn’t look like a person with Canadian person.

    Can we lock this into "It doesn't make a difference to the real world" file?

    Muslims: Hey everybody stop fighting! That American infidel senator grew a beard! We don't have to hate them anymore! Now we can all hug & be all touchy-fealy together!

    So I see that whole idea for the absurdity that it is.

    If the difference between success and failure in peace negotiations is facial hair, there isn't much hope for a last agreement.

    Oh, for goodness sakes . . . .

    But I guess this makes just about as much sense as anything else coming from the GOP these days . . .

    Growing beards to solve the Middle East issues? That sounds like a GOP plan. But, wait- I thought Jared was going to solve Middle East peace plans in his first year. You mean it's not fixed yet?

    The majority of the Middle East sport beards. Why would this then only apply to Jews?
