The internet was ablaze with accusations of anti-Semitism for asking an "opinion" about an actual fact. Many accused the tweet of pandering to Holocaust deniers. Scaramucci has not yet retweeted the poll or released a statement. The account says that it is run by Lance Laifer, a hedge fund manager and former Internet entrepreneur.

As of publication of this story 15 percent of those taking the poll seem to be Holocaust deniers and 23 people clicked "favorite" on the poll.
