Former “president” Barack Obama, arguably the second most anti-Semitic president in the nation’s history, is blaming President Trump for the rise of anti-Semitism in the country. Yes, because a man with a Jewish daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren obviously hates Jews.
Former President Barack Obama appeared to fault former President Donald Trump for a recent rise in anti-Semitic incidents throughout the United States.
In an email interview with Jewish Insider, published on Monday, Obama spoke about “negative and divisive trends” in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, which led to multiple deaths and created a political shockwave in the country. The 44th president, who referenced a speech he gave at the Embassy of Israel in his last year in office, appeared to suggest Trump’s time in the White House led to a rise in anti-Jewish hate.
“When I gave that speech, it was clear that anti-Semitism was on the rise around the world,” Obama wrote. “People’s anger over everything from immigration to inequality was boiling over — and many of them were looking for someone else to blame. And for four years, we had a President in the White House who fanned those flames.”
That’s interesting coming from a man who made sure any Israeli contingents – including Benjamin Netanyahu – were forced to leave through the White House kitchen, told to speak with underlings instead of the Lightbringer, and endorsing Israel’s pre-1967 borders.
