Today at the White House, Donald Trump responded to a question about Rep. Rashida Tlaib by saying, “you should see the horrible things that Talib has said about Israel…” Then he lumped all Jewish people who vote for Democrats together saying:

“I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”

Dan Rather remarked:

Let’s be crystal clear. When Pres. Trump says that Jews who vote for Democrats show “either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty,” he is summoning the forces of bigotry and anti-Semitism with all of its blood-stained history.
