Special snowflake Donald Trump has been thwarted in his plan to land a helicopter on Masada, an ancient fortress in Israel that Unesco has declared to be a World Heritage Site; he'll have to ride the cablecar up it just like every other world leader who's visited it since 1998.
In 1997, an Israeli Air Force helicopter landed in the middle of Masada, one of Israel’s most ancient and famous archaeological parks. It was carrying then-US Air Force commander Gen. Michael Ryan who had asked to visit the fortress, a recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site.
But when the helicopter landed, it threw up far more than just sand and dust. Signs blew off their posts and the wind caused by the helicopter’s powerful propellers caused damage to the ruins.
It was the last time a helicopter was allowed to land in the middle of Masada, the fortress built by Herod the Great that overlooks the Dead Sea on the edge of the Judean Desert.
Since then, the only plane on Masada was a Cessna light aircraft that accidentally crashed into the site in 2006.

By the end of the year, Trump and his family will have spent more of the Secret Service’s budget than the Obama administration spent in eight years — enough to exhaust the Secret Service’s entire budget for the year and drive 500 Secret Security agents to quit their jobs in disgust.
Gary D Cohn is director of Trump’s National Economic Council; Steven Mnuchin is Secretary of the Treasury; Jared Kushner is Trump’s son-in-law and Ivanka Trump is Trump’s daughter, who converted to Judiasm: not one of them has said anything in public about Trump’s bizarre rant in which he said that not all the Nazi marchers […]
