Anne Frank Center slams Trump: ‘Do not make us Jews settle for crumbs of condescension’

“[Trump's] statement today is a pathetic asterisk of condescension after weeks in which he and his staff have committed grotesque acts and omissions reflecting Antisemitism, yet day after day have refused to apologize and correct the record,” Goldstein said in the statement. “Make no mistake: The Antisemitism coming out of this Administration is the worst we have ever seen from any Administration.”

“The White House repeatedly refused to mention Jews in its Holocaust remembrance, and had the audacity to take offense when the world pointed out the ramifications of Holocaust denial. And it was only yesterday, Presidents’ Day, that Jewish Community Centers across the nation received bomb threats, and the President said absolutely nothing. When President Trump responds to Antisemitism proactively and in real time, and without pleas and pressure, that’s when we’ll be able to say this President has turned a corner. This is not that moment.”

Margaret Brennan questioned Sean Spicer on the whackamole smackdown of Trump by the Anne Frank Center. Here's the article about Brennan's question, and the surreal response by Spicer:

In one exchange, Sean Spicer demonstrated why there’s skepticism about Trump’s claims of tolerance

Asked about that spike in anti-Semitic activity last Wednesday, Trump chose first to talk about his electoral vote totals, implying that concerns that he may be tacitly supporting anti-Semitic actions were offset by the “tremendous enthusiasm” his candidacy had received. He then suggested that there was nothing new about such behavior, saying that his administration was “going to do everything within our power to stop long-simmering racism and every other thing that’s going on, because a lot of bad things have been taking place over a long period of time.” 

Bad things. Long time. Very bad. Ding, fries are done!

Why does this guy sound like a 4th grade dropout every time he opens his mouth?

Read both articles. Each, in its own way, is quite enlightening.
