The Maniacle Messianic Trump

He now claims he's the King of the Jews and that American Jews should pledge allegiance to Israel and the Republican Party or else...

‘President Trump is the greatest president for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America... and the Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God’ Wayne Allyn Root

“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world...and the Jewish people in Israel love him....

"It's unclear who @POTUS is claiming Jews would be 'disloyal' to, but charges of disloyalty have long been used to attack Jews. 

As we've said before, it's possible to engage in the democratic process without these claims. It's long overdue to stop using Jews as a political football," Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt tweeted later Tuesday. 

Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, called the comments "yet another example of Donald Trump continuing to weaponize and politicize anti-Semitism."

Thanks Aaron!

PSA #1: an antisemitic Evangelical is not a good source on Judaism or Jews.

PSA #2: That second coming thing? Ummm...not Jewish.

Also, your periodic reminder that close to 80% of Jews voted against the guy who's encouraging white nationalists.

It is time for the 25th. Trump has COMPLETELY lost the few marbles he may once have had.

I think he is merely confirming what his evangelical base already thinks.

What has Trump done since he became POTUS?

He's increased the deficit, given tax cuts to the rich without spending cuts, increased taxes for the middle class through tariffs, spent American tax dollars on the wall he said Mexico would pay for, built prisons for formerly tax paying Americans labeled illegal, sarted an unnecessary trade war wih China and propelled the thriving economy e inherited from Obama into near recession.

Really Mort, built prisons for formally tax paying Americans labeled illegal, They are illegal not just labeled illegal. Increased the deficit that was raging prior to his election and if you call a sub 2% gdp growth for over eight years thriving you need to take economics 101.

If you don't care how much you run up the debt, tax cuts for the wealthy can get you gdp growth. Which is the play republicans ALWAYS run. Then the economy crashes, a Democrat takes over, and they start whining about the debt.

Re the Proud Resister tweet contained in this post... you can find his podcast here.

Anyway, if Dotard is the Chosen One, I say he was chosen by Satan.
