Eric Trump Accused Of Anti-Semitism For Bob Woodward ‘Shekels’ Criticism

Mod: Who's the dumbest Trump of all?

Eric Trump Accused Of Anti-Semitism For Bob Woodward ‘Shekels’ Criticism (Huffington Post link): President Donald Trump’s son, Eric, is accused of making anti-Semitic comments in reference to Bob Woodward’s new book about his father’s White House.

The president’s son appeared on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning and denounced Woodward’s book, Fear: Trump in the White House, as fiction. It all started when co-host Steve Doocy noted that the book and last week’s anonymous New York Times op-ed criticizing the president as amoral and vapid have stirred fresh chaos in the White House.

Eric Trump pushed back, saying the media only wants to make his dad look bad.

“Don’t you think people look through the fact, you can write some sensational, nonsense book, CNN will definitely have you on there because they love to trash the president,” Trump said.

Then, in what some people interpret as a dog whistle to white nationalists, Trump added:

It’ll mean you sell three extra books, you make three extra shekels, at the behest of the American people, at the behest of our country, that’s doing a phenomenal job by every quantifiable metric. Is that really where we are?

The shekel is the currency used in both ancient and modern-day Israel. Keegan Hankes, senior research analyst at the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project, which tracks hate groups, noted that the term also can be used as a slur.

Shekels is a derogatory term used by white supremacists that ties into the myth that Jewish people only care about money,” Hankes told HuffPost. The term is tied to the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that Jews control the financial system, she said, and is “used constantly by the extreme right and particularly neo-Nazis.”

Trump’s use of the word on Fox News “certainly seems like a dog whistle,” Hankes added.

  3. Joe Scarborough: House GOP Aren't Just Dupes for Trump, They're Dupes for Putin

    Joe Scarborough: House GOP Aren’t Just Dupes for Trump, They’re Dupes for Putin

    A new CNN poll released this week reports that Americans are growing more supportive of Robert Mueller’s handling of the Russia probe. Special Counsel Mueller enjoys a 50% approval rating of the handling of the Russia investigation from those polled, while only 30% back President Trump. This led to a discussion on Morning Joe in which host Joe Scarborough had a few things to say.

    He first noted that the office of Special Counsel should send Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani “some flowers and thank him because he’s been doing nothing but help Robert Mueller.”

    Many have seen Giuliani’s publicity tour as a means to win the political battle of public opinion, of which the polling data suggests has not worked out as intended. Scarborough noted “the numbers are going in the opposite direction”, adding that “the strategy of Rudy Giuliani’s is a Steve Bannon strategy. It’s a 33% strategy.”

    Scarborough then took his aim at House Republicans who he sees as trying to “obstruct a Russian investigation and interfering with democracy.” In Scarborough’s esteem, “they’re not just being dupes for Donald Trump…they’re being dupes for Vladimir Putin.”

    Reminder to young readers that Joe Scarborough once was House Republican himself earlier this millennium.

  4. Rush Limbaugh shares fake story that sharks are flying around in Hurricane Florence

    Limbaugh, who also claimed that coverage of Florence has been overhyped to push concerns about climate change (a claim he has made about hurricane coverage in the past), said “reports” from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) “show sharks have been lifted into the hurricane.” He also said that sharks “are being lifted out of the Atlantic Ocean and dumped into the storm because it’s so strong it’s sucking them in there,” and he held up a printout of the fake chyron for his camera.

  7. With a sales tax increase on the horizon, many small businesses will be hurt financially, why did they all vote for this increase? There are many theories but none makes sense other than everyone else is doing it? I told you that is not much of a justification folks. Poor leadership seems to be the real problem - panic is another 2018.

  9. Pres-dent Donald Trump on Thursday rejected the official conclusion that nearly 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico from last year’s Hurricane Maria, arguing without evidence that the number was wrong and calling it a plot by Democrats to make him “look as bad as possible.”

  14. Joe Scarborough was a RINO, clean the swamp.
    After taking a page out of President Bill Clinton's little black book and playing footsie under the journalist table with his co host, Joe's wife threw him out, something Hillary didn't do, instead she went after the female victims.
    Joe was always a Progressive jerk.

  15. Speaking if fake Climate Change 6:05am, the summit of Climate Change talks just took place in San Francisco. All the big energy wasters attended, like Al Gore, they all flew into Cisco on their private jets and were chauffeured around in limos. Wouldn't be suprised if they all ate shark fin soup as a appetizer before their elaborate meals, all paid by tax payers. That's Climate change!

  20. Glendora, California set in motion a 'declaration of financial emergency' come September 25, 2018..
    Why would they do this? To get a lower rate of city borrowing levels and to implement a .75% sales tax increase and beg the County of Los Angeles to fund a special election to allow the voters in Glendora to implementation March 2019, only a financial fool would wait this long to get this issue before the voting residents to do a up or down vote. This will only make Glendora less desirable city of move to or do business with business located in a 10.25% SALES TAX INCREASE.

  24. Lets set the stage for the Ford Motor Company, they might be failing or falter so what does the city of Glendora, California do? They invest $500,000.00 dollars into police cruisers that will not be needed until late 2019. But with a company that needed a fresh infusion of dollars to keep its door open another day. https://www.yahoo.com/news/u-auto-travails-continue-ford-132001127.html
