Saturday’s Fake News

Speaking to a group of influential Jewish Republicans yesterday, Mr. Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America, said that Democrats were mistreating Israel and allowing the “scourge of anti-Semitism to take root” in the their party.  He said, “Democrats are advancing by far the most extreme, anti-Semitic agenda in history.”…“if implemented” this radical agenda “could very well leave Israel out there all by yourselves.”

How are Democrats mistreating Israel? Where is that evidence to be found?  What is this “anti-Semitic agenda”—the most extreme anti-Semitism agenda in history?  

Mr. Trump said, just yesterday, before the same audience:  “Special thanks to Representative Omar of Minnesota” (a Somalian-born Muslim, who was recently rebuked by Republicans and members of her own party for comments perceived to be anti-Semitic).  “Oh, I almost forgot.  She doesn’t like Israel…I’m so sorry!”  And the gathered influential Jewish Republicans became complicit in the lie, booing the congresswoman.  I suppose they will soon be chanting of Omar, too, “Lock her up!”

Who said Omar doesn’t like Israel?  Where is the evidence? Mr. Trump, are you aware that federal authorities arrested and charged a New York man for threatening to assault and kill Representative Omar on Friday?

Then, Mr. Trump spoke of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the climate change initiative called the Green New Deal.  He called it “socialism” and, after all, he said derisively, it is a resolution proposed by “a wonderful young bartender, 29 years old.”
Mr. Trump, that “young bartender” graduated “cum laude” from Boston University, majoring in international relations and economics. She served as a Senate intern, and is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.  What do you mean, “a wonderful young bartender…?”  As you say, yourself, Mr. Trump, "They (whoever "they" are) don't cover stories the way they're supposed to be.  They don't even report them in many cases if they"re positive."  You've got that right, Mr. Trump!
