A new sign was just hung at the entrance to the new settlement named “Ramat Trump” after US President Trump. The Israeli Cabinet meeting will be held there tomorrow.June 16, 2019 12:33 am at 12:33 am #1742754
“In the same survey more New Yorkers (among all, not just Jews) expressed a favorable opinion of President Trump than of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.“
Well that’s not saying much
A subway rat is probably more favorable than hizzonnerJuly 29, 2019 3:38 pm at 3:38 pm #1767055July 29, 2019 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm #1767217
When Donald Trump Worked in the Laundry Room
Rabbi Wagner has vivid recollections of Fred Trump’s son, a wild, blond-haired youth. “Donald’s father left him and his brother an inheritance of over a million dollars. In effect, Fred was the one who launched his son’s business career.
I still remember going to shul with my father for Shacharis (morning prayer) early every Sunday morning. The laundry room, where all the tenants washed their clothes in coin-operated machines, was in the basement of the building. And do you know who collected the money from those machines in the mornings? Donald Trump and his brother!
“Donald was Fred Trump’s second son. I remember him from the age of about 14 or 15, with his wild shock of blond hair and his endless reserves of energy and drive. His father used to send him to collect the money from the laundry machines. Fred taught his children from a very early age to take responsibility; he gave them no breaks. Donald may have been wild as a youth, but his father raised him well.July 30, 2019 7:28 am at 7:28 am #1767268
Donald Trump clearly does things favorable to the Jews while not shying away from infuriating the Arabs.
He is not known as a lover of blacks, and he clearly is starting up with south Americans.
To say it’s all part of some huge psychological game where he is doing exactly the opposite of his desires and really he hates Jews and it’s all some grand scheme, is firstly beyond normal belief, requires a pre-conceived belief that he “hates Jews don’t mix me up with facts ”
And secondly would mean if is some sort of genius and great actor! Exactly the opposite of what those same people claim that he is a stupid loose canon.
So trump haters, take your pick
Is he a genius Jew hater?
Or perhaps he really is a Jew lover and he is exactly what he seems to be
Average intelligent shoot from the hip ball it like he sees it and a Jew loverJuly 30, 2019 9:12 am at 9:12 am #1767318
Trump does a favorable act and the recipient is Jewish , ergo he is a oheiv yisroel par excellance.
He insults, attacks and denigrates multiple black people multiple times , ergo he is a racist par excellance.July 30, 2019 12:10 pm at 12:10 pm #1767375
Not so sure he is a racist, he seems more like an equal opportunity attacker.July 30, 2019 12:11 pm at 12:11 pm #1767357
As an objective logical position you are absolutely correct.
However you need to back up your statement with specifics
Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Whether you are nituray karta or ardent Zionist, that is clearly in trumps mind an unnecessary, and very pro Jewish move.
Same for recognizing the Golan as part of Israel proper.
Or Cutting off aid to Palestinian monsters, or mobsters .
Because no matter how morally correct you want to claim these acts are, no other president did them, and all got away with it. If he had no affinity for the Jews he could have easily continued that pattern.
His commuting the sentences of rubashkin and yesterday, I personally don’t think it proves it because they are individuals and presidents routinely do such things, but they definitely bolster the narrative.
How about you list a few examples of his
“insults, attacks and denigrates multiple black people multiple times”
So we can see if In truth he is a racistJuly 30, 2019 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #1767412
He insulted so many people, some of them happen to be minorities.July 30, 2019 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #1767320
Both right-wing and left-wing can agree that it is possible to pursue certain policies and take certain actions which arguably have a political rationale without engaging in vile, hateful and racist rhetoric. Ronald Reagan consistently acted in accordance with his principles but NEVER got down into the slime and engaged in the personal bullying and obscene racist tropes that the Trumpkopf seems to thrive and and energizes his supporters.July 30, 2019 1:00 pm at 1:00 pm #1767327
“A new sign was just hung at the entrance to the new settlement named “Ramat Trump” after US President Trump”
Well, Joey, a new sign appeared overnight at the Sewage Treatment Plant just outside Baltimore renaming the facility as the DJT Sewage Plant. The Av H’Tumah has relocated from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave to the shores of the Patapsco RiverJuly 30, 2019 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #1767516
Exactly, because baltomorons hate trump and are RACISTS (there I said it!)
Would it be racist to say the same thing with Obama in Texas?July 30, 2019 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #1767531
@ coffee addict
“Exactly, because baltomorons hate trump and are RACISTS”
You just leveled a prejudiced insult at an entire community based on the comments of one CR liberal.July 30, 2019 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #1767571
Non-political….you are so right. The residents of Baltimore are the only Americans who “hate trump”. Otherwise, he is a hero to the residents of all of American’s other cities and towns, especially among minorities (where the Fox News Poll shows his popularity among African-Americans increased by nearly 50 percent in 2 years, 4% to 6%)July 30, 2019 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #1767570
No I didn’t 😁
Did I say all people that live in Baltimore hate trump? Those that do are baltimorons the rest are baltimoriansJuly 31, 2019 12:53 am at 12:53 am #1767592
“Did I say all people that live in Baltimore hate trump? Those that do are baltimorons the rest are baltimorians”
Thank you for clarifying. I retract.August 9, 2019 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #1772162
CNN has a long interesting article today (“Sholom Rubashkin: The inside story of how a kosher meat kingpin won clemency under Trump”) about how President Donald Trump came about commuting the sentence of Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin. It claims Jared Kushner was much more responsible for getting the President to issue the commutation than Alan Dershowitz, who was given most of the credit previously.
It also says President Trump specifically was motivated to issue the commutation in order to help the Orthodox Jewish community out of hakaros hatov for our support of him.
