Rudy Giuliani accuses majority of US Jews of ‘disloyalty to Israel’ — and gets torn to pieces

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday tried to clean up President Donald Trump’s declaration that “any Jewish people” who vote for Democrats have “a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”

Writing on Twitter, Giuliani explained that Trump wasn’t saying Jewish Democrats were disloyal to America — rather, he was saying they were being disloyal to Israel.

“Really disappointed a rep of ADL would feign confusion about [Trump’s] statement,” Giuliani said. “POTUS is referring to disloyalty to Israel.”

Accusing Jews of having “dual loyalty” to both the United States and Israel is an anti-Semitic slur that has been used to paint American Jews as foreign agents in their own country. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) drew heavy criticism earlier this year when she said that members of Congress were so in lockstep in support for the Israeli government that it was akin to having “allegiance to a foreign country.”

Omar, however, never explicitly said that it was American Jews who had “allegiance to a foreign country” — and now Giuliani is flat-out stating that American Jews should have dual loyalties to both America and Israel.

And given that the Democrats usually win between 70 percent to 80 percent of the Jewish vote in elections, Giuliani seems to be telling the majority of American Jews that they are failing their dual loyalty test.

Because of all this, Giuliani’s tweet was met with furious replies — check out some reactions below.

The former national security adviser claims Trump explicitly tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe Biden, and Senate Republicans are furious the White House apparently knew about the allegations but didn't prepare for the possibility they would leak before the trial ended, reported Axios.

Rick Wilson buries Pam Bondi for ‘laughable and shallow’ impeachment defense designed to dazzle Trump

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Republican campaign consultant Rick Wilson leveled former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi for her defense of Donald Trump on Monday -- which turned into a diatribe against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Speaking with host Willie Geist, Wilson also brought up accusations of political corruption against Bondi who dropped a Florida state lawsuit against Trump before he became president after a PAC associated with her received a substantial political donation.

"This is also one of the great master fantasies of the Trump campaign, make Hunter Biden a major issue in the 2020 election and Pam Bondi played to one audience, and that was Fox and Trump. That's all they cared about," he explained. "That's all they were trying to accomplish, and, look, she goes way back with Donald Trump; left office under a cloud when she left the office of attorney general in Florida, because she had taken basically a $25,000 bribe from Donald Trump about Trump University and dropped the lawsuit in Florida."

MSNBC’s Morning Joe uncorks hilarious rant against ‘confederacy of dunces’ defending Trump from impeachment

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough breathlessly ranted, as his co-hosts cracked up with laughter, against the "confederacy of dunces" defending President Donald Trump from impeachment.

The "Morning Joe" host mocked the hours-long parade of attorneys -- including Alan Dershowitz, Ken Starr and Pam Bondi -- offering specious legal arguments to defend the president at his Senate impeachment trial.

"You had a confederacy of dunces defending him in impeachment," Scarborough said. "Their arguments were absolutely stunning."

The defense team painted Rudy Giuliani as a minor player in the Ukraine scheme, although multiple witnesses have described him as the hub of the operation, and Starr, the lead investigator in Bill Clinton's impeachment, bemoaned the "age of impeachment."
