Despite the fact that Trump is the most slavishly philo-Semitic president I can imagine short of, say, Rahm Emanuel and an IDF guerrilla squad staging a White House coup, the accusations of his alleged “anti-Semitism” have been loud and long and relentless. A highly publicized spate of anti-Jewish bomb threats and cemetery desecrations nationwide have only emboldened the drumbeat for Trump to “renounce” or “disavow” these alleged events—which he’s done several times, despite having nothing to do with them. He was also roundly mocked for suggesting that some of them could have been staged “reverse” events to “make people look bad.”
Apoplectic Bolshevik Bernie Sanders solemnly warned Trump that “the whole world is watching” for Trump’s response to the presumed “significant outbreak of anti-Semitism in our country.” Must suck for Bernie that the accused perp of at least eight of these anti-Jew outbreaks is a dedicated Sanders supporter who calls Trump a “racist/sexist/capitalist monster.”
