The pressure President Dumb Trump applied on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to rescind an invitation to two American Congresswomen who were about to visit Israel is having deep repercussions inside Israel. Many viewed it as interference in the affairs of a sovereign nation. Dumb Trump is dividing American Jews now.
To stoke the fires of divisions, Dumb Trump tweeted what amounts to be a jewel that made many American Jews cringe with disgust. Watch the last 20 seconds of this video to witness the face of fascism.
The outrage his comments created has blanketed the news across both the conservative and the liberal media. The two words: Jews and disloyal are oxymoronic, especially when it comes to American Jews whose loyalties should never be questioned. The last man to put the two together was Adolf Hitler.
DOUBLE DOWN DONNY
But that’s not the end of it.
Dumb Trump, as is his habit, repeated the offensive words again.
Of the five million Jews in this country, those who voted did so overwhelmingly for the Democratic Party. According to Bloomberg, 79% of American Jews voted for the Democrats in 2018 mid-term elections. Did Dumb Trump think that he could persuade those voters into his corner by calling their act “disloyal”? As he has divided the country, Trump is dividing American Jews now.
DIVIDING AMERICANS IS TRUMP’S COMPETENCY
According to The Times of Israel, American Jews responded:
American Jewish leaders have condemned Trump over his Tuesday remarks.
“It’s unclear who @POTUS is claiming Jews would be “disloyal” to, but charges of disloyalty have long been used to attack Jews,” tweeted Jonathan Greenblatt of the Anti-Defamation League earlier, calling on the president to stop “using Jews as a political football.”
American Jewish Committee CEO David Harris called his comments “outrageous.”
“This is a free country. Jews aren’t a monolithic bloc, nor single-issue voters. Some will vote Democratic, others Republican. As Americans, that’s their right. Please keep loyalty out of it,” he said.
In Israel, not one conservative journalist or reporter commented on his words favorably. We believe they are still absorbing the shock.
No one called it a joke yet. The excuse many of his supporters use to exonerate his racism and bigotry.
As Trump has divided Americans over race and ethnicity, it was only a matter of time before he nudges the 80% of American Jews who vote for the Democratic Party.
Except that, because he is not that smart, Trump fell into his own racist trap.
