President Donald J. Trump said in a press conference at the Oval Office on Tuesday that Jewish-Americans who vote Democrat are doing a disservice to their own faith, as the Democratic Party becomes more openly anti-Semitic.
“I can’t even believe that we’re having this conversation,” Trump said. “Five years ago, the concept of even talking about this, even three years ago, of cutting off aid to Israel because of two people that hate Israel and hate Jewish people.”
“I can’t believe we’re having this conversation,” he continued. “Where has the Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone that they’re defending these two people over the state of Israel? I think that any Jewish people who vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”
The comments came in the context of Muslim Democrat Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) stepping up their attacks on Israel, and publicly voicing their support for the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Last week, the pair of Congresswomen were barred from entering Israel by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The decision was handed down after Trump took to Twitter to blast the pair of congresswomen for their attitudes towards America’s ally.
“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!” he said.
Omar has been engulfed in anti-Semitism scandals throughout her entire tenure in Congress. In fact, the State Department recently changed the official definition of anti-Semitism in response to Omar’s continued attacks. She once Tweeted that “Israel has hypnotized the world.”
Both Omar and Tlaib shared a cartoon last week drawn by a Holocaust denier.
“Oof. Looks like both Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib shared this awful Carlos Latuff cartoon in Instagram stories yesterday. In 2006, Latuff came in second in Iran’s International Holocaust Cartoon Contest, which is a thing that exists, in case you thought the TL couldn’t get any worse,” Batya Ungar-Sargon of The Forward said on Twitter.
“TL” in this context stands for “timeline.”
Tlaib covered herself in a Palestinian flag immediately upon her election to the United States Congress, a political statement that this reporter still feels has not been discussed thoroughly enough in the news.
She was granted special permission to visit her dear granny in the West Bank village of Beit Ur al-Tahta after Netanyahu barred her from Israel, an offer which she snidely refused after whining about how she was not going to be able to see her grandmother. Granny then asked Allah to smite Trump, saying “may God ruin him.”
