Bogus News Story Of The Day

Why has Trump been so slow to confront anti-Semitism? Several answers suggest themselves, none of them good. Every time I think they can’t surprise me, they do. My mouth dropped open when I saw Google headlines today full of stories about how Trump was too slow to condemn antisemitism. First the story is that he is giving his Jewish son-in-law too much of a say in government and then it is all how he is an anti-Semite. I wish they could at least keep their stories straight.
