The Trumpian Idiot Strikes Again


(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF CBS NEWS)

 

Less than a day after President Donald Trump outraged many members of the Jewish community for his comments about their loyalty, he tweeted out the claim that Israeli Jews view him as the “second coming of God.”

In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, Mr. Trump quoted conservative radio host and known conspiracy theorist Wayne Allyn Root, who practically declared the president the Messiah during his show Tuesday night.

Quoting Root’s tweet, Mr. Trump shared the message that he is “the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world,” that “the Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel” and even that “They love him like he is the second coming of God.”

“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him….

….like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God…But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for…..

Mr. Trump said “Wow!” and thanked Root for the “very nice words.”

Root is a self-described “Jew turned evangelical Christian” and the author of a 2015 book titled “Angry White Male: How the Donald Trump Phenomenon Is Changing America,” which had a forward by now-indicted Trump associate Roger Stone.

Root is also known for promoting bogus right-wing conspiracy theories. He attended Columbia University while Barack Obama was also studying there, then later falsely claimed that Mr. Obama did not actually attend the school. More recently, he falsely said on Twitter that the 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas, which killed 58 people, was an act of Muslim terrorism. The gunman was not Muslim and investigators were unable to determine a motive.

The latest tweets come a day after President Trump criticized “any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat,” saying it “shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.” Leaders in the Jewish community raised concerns that the president was promoting anti-Semitic stereotypes by casting Jews as disloyal. Such accusations have a long and disturbing history of being used against Jews, said Jonathan Greenblatt, chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League.

Polling shows that a majority of Jewish Americans identify as Democrats and did not vote for Mr. Trump in 2016.

  1. In Germany such attacks on the Jewish community would be regarded as a criminal demagogic act and in terms of applicable laws as anINCITEMENT OF PEOPLE which can be punished also with going to jail.

    1. I agree, our glorious “Coward-n-Chief” should have been in prison long ago and should be there until the day he dies. It is quite embarrassing to have this idiotic clown as our president.

      1. But the embarassing question remains why are so many people supporting him? And why do we not see protests like in Hongkong with a million people defending their civil rights and freedom? I am also unhappy about politicians in the EU not saying clearly that this clown wants to pave the way for a dictatorial regime. He is a real danger for peace on our Earth in general.

        1. I agree, I think that a lot of the reason is because the people also hate our VP Mr. Pence and there is great hatred for the Democratic Party as well as for the Leadership of the Republican Party, people feel we have no where to go that wouldn’t give us another crook. These two Parties have rigged the system to where they are the only two parties that a person can get elected to any office in. This is why so many people here don’t even bother to vote. It is like which crook do you get to vote for, which is the less of the two evils. One of the big reasons Trump won via the Electoral College was because the Democrats put up a hate filled Bitch (Hillary Clinton) as their rep so the people knew that either Trump or Hillary was going to win and most people hated both of them so they either didn’t bother to vote or wasted their vote on a very small third party like Gary Johnson (Libertarian) who had no chance at all of winning. He got less than 5% of the vote. If you voted for him you knew that he was not going to win so at best it was a protest vote against the main two.

          1. Thanks for the detailed answer, there are similar developments as well also in the European Union, however we have a great diversity of multiple parties of any kind you can only imagine. And new parties coming also out of nothing into regional, national and European parliamentary system. But also uncountable populist and right-winged idiots everywhere, especially in Italy and Hungary actually. The zeitgeist not very favourable to us.
