Israeli journalist demolishes Trump as ‘the greatest anti-Semite of our age’ in blistering op-ed

Published

on

American-born Israeli journalist Bradley Burston this week wrote an absolutely blistering column for Haaretz in reaction to President Donald Trump’s declaration that Jews who don’t support him are “disloyal” to Israel.

At the start of his piece, Burston declares Trump “the greatest anti-Semite of our age” and explains how the president has now blown past the typical dog whistles that anti-Semites typically use to test how much they can get away with.

“For years he’s boogalooed and pirouetted around the issue, dog whistling Dixie at every opportunity,” Burston writes. “This week though, he made it official, gnawing on and extracting with his very teeth the pin on the fragmentation grenade that went: ‘Any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.’ There it is. His test of the Jews, full frontal. Come and get me, he taunts. And just watch me as I mine and inflame and leverage the Jew in you, and turn all of it into votes.”

Burston then speculates that the real purpose of Trump’s attacks on the majority of American Jews this week was to shore up his evangelical base who believe that supporting Israel is their fast-track ticket to being Raptured up to Heaven before the End Times strike.

“You’re better Zionists than the Jews are, and at this point, you — and especially, I — are even more pro-Israel than that Omar-Tlaib waffler Netanyahu,” Burston imagines Trump telling his evangelical followers. “Not only that, you can lock in your place in scripture, in rapture, in the End of Days, with nothing more than one vote. Donald Trump.”

Trump fans sharpen their knives for Mulvaney after quid pro quo disaster: ‘He’s about 70 percent as smart as he thinks he is’

Published

on

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's disastrous press conference on Thursday has riled up some of Donald Trump's most avid defenders who are now talking behind his back and on conservative talk radio for hurting the president.

According to a report at the Daily Beast, not only was the press stunned by Mulvaney's admission that the administration indulges in quid pro quo negotiating -- with the high-ranking White House official snapping "Get over it" at reporters -- but conservatives were also appalled at the damage he did to Trump despite attempting to disavow his own words hours later.

Trump lawyer issues bonkers threat to sue CNN over ‘unfair’ coverage of the president

Published

on

Trump attorney Charles Harder on Friday sent CNN CEO Jeff Zucker a bonkers letter in which he threatened to sue the cable news network for its "biased" coverage of the president.

The letter, which was posted on Twitter by Trump 2020 chief operating officer Michael Glassner, accuses CNN of deceiving the public with its slogan of putting "facts first," and it outlines the many ways the president has been treated poorly by the network.

"Never in the history of this country has a President been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by the so-called 'mainstream' media as the current situation," Harder writes. "My clients intend to file legal action against you to seek compensatory damages, treble damages, punitive damages, injunctive relief, reimbursement of legal costs, and all other available legal and equitable remedies to the maximum extent permitted by law."
