🎶…And a Nazi with four Christmas trees.🎶
Some other “highlights” of this Hanukkah extravaganza:
#1 – Zero Democratic congresspeople were invited to the event, even though 28 of the 30 Jewish House members are Democrats.
#2 – Jewish GOP congressmen Lee Zeldin and David Kustoff were, however, in attendance, partying it up with far-far-right Jews, including Zionist Organization of America president Mort Klein, who once proclaimed President Obama a “Jew-hating anti-semite.”
#3 — The first thing Trump did upon entering the party? Bragged about his calamitous, uninformed decision to unilaterally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
“I know for a fact there are a lot of happy people in this room,” he declared, adding: “Jerusalem.”
#4 – Trump then brought his grandchildren—both Jewish—to light a tiny menorah in front of everyone. According to people there, this was the only actual Hanukkah decoration at the entire party. There were, however, four large Christmas trees in room.
#5 – After the official White House event concluded, partygoers moved to the Trump International Hotel (surprise, surprise), for a second reception sponsored by the Sheldon Adelson-funded Republican Jewish Coalition. There, the Times reported:
Other boldfaced names in the Trump orbit, including David A. Clarke Jr., a former sheriff of Milwaukee County, and Jill Kelley, the Tampa socialite, mingled near the bar. Several guests clutched copies of the book “Let Trump Be Trump,” by Corey Lewandowski, the president’s first campaign manager, which he had been signing earlier in the lobby.
Because everyone knows the Jewish eight-day “festival of lights” is celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers, fried foods, inmate abusers and Trump propaganda. L’Chayim!
