Joel Rubin, president of the Washington Strategy Group, slammed the “shameful” Republican Party, telling MSNBC the GOP was using anti-Semitism as a “political cudgel” against the Democratic Party.
“Shameful, shameful that Republicans are using anti-Semitism as a cudgel for political benefit,” said Rubin after host Chris Jansing told him how specific Republicans were planning to leverage the issue. “I didn’t hear them call out Representative Mo Brooks yesterday for reciting lines from Mein Kampf by Hitler.”
“This is over the line,” Rubin continued angrily. “American Jews voted 80% for Democrats in the last election, 32 of 34 members of Congress are Jewish, I myself as a Jewish American am a Democrat and proud to be connected to the state of Israel.”
“It’s despicable that members of Congress believe that this is somehow a way to get a couple seats or maybe raise some more money,” he said dismissively.
“I do think that that is a cold calculation here in that they’re attempting to wedge out, as the discussion has been, moving Jews away from the Democratic Party by using Israel as a political, not as a football, but as a political land mine.”

Trump is ‘completely shutting down’ oversight: CNN’s Toobin slams the White House’s move to limit Hope Hicks testimony
On Tuesday, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin tore into President Donald Trump's White House for moving to limit what former Communications Director Hope Hicks can tell the House Judiciary Committee in her upcoming testimony.
Hope Hicks, a former communications official at the White House, will testify behind closed doors tomorrow in the House of Representatives, the Judiciary Committee," said anchor Wolf Blitzer. "But the White House is now saying she has immunity — she doesn't have to answer questions regarding the time she served in the White House."
"You said she's going to give testimony," said Toobin. "I believe she will attend the hearing. I think that's the accurate way to put this."
WATCH LIVE: Trump’s 2020 campaign launch in Orlando
President Donald Trump's fans stood in a storm through Florida as they awaited being let into the Amway Center for the 2020 campaign launch. Meanwhile, the Orlando Sentinal was dropping a truth bomb on their reasons for endorsing "Not Trump."
Outside the Orlando rally, as fans were getting drenched, the president was leaving the White House ranting about how there were "both sides" to the false conviction of the Central Park Five. And once supporters finally made it inside the Amway Center, they were greeted with a message from a booming 1984-esque voice telling Trump supporters what to do if there are protesters.
