God forbid that President Obama would have been as foolish and tone deaf as Donald Trump was the other day while he was speaking in front of the GOP Jewish Coalition.
If he had, he would have been called an anti-Semite by every Jewish organization in America.
However, even after Trump used many known negative stereotypes of Jews, not one Jewish organization has come forward to condemn him. Why is that? Why is the Jewish community not speaking up against this virulent racist and bigot after speaking like the type of anti-Semite we Jews have come to know only too well?
What am I missing by this failure to condemn Trump for what he is?
