Washington, D.C. - It was a clash of the titans when Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton and Mr. Anti-Establishment himself, Donald Trump, waltzed into Washington to address the pro-Israel lobby known as AIPAC.

Yep, just another typical day in Washington complete with anti-Trump protestors chanting, "Hey, hey, ho, ho...Donald Trump has got to go."

Seeming to take a page from the protestors Clinton summed up her views speaking to the pro-Israel group. "If you see bigotry, oppose it. If you see violence, condemn it. If you see a bully, stand up to him."

Trump scored his own points, promising "we will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem."

Trump has been on a quest to secure a mideast peace deal. "I would at least like to have the other side think I'm somewhat neutral to them, so that we could maybe get a deal done."

But Clinton scored a major ovation when she declared, "Well, my friends, Israel's security is non-negotiable."

Trump got support too, on a favorite topic of his. "With President Obama in his final year...yay!" The crowd erupted in applause.

Perhaps in his most un-Trump-like comments yet, the Republican frontrunner tried a little diplomacy in answering critics about how to improve conditions in Washington. "Everybody has to get together, and get it solved," Trump warned. "If they don't get together, we're not going to have much of a country."

It's hard to argue with that, but if anyone can Trump those remarks it's gotta be you-know-who!
