The only Jewish leader willing to defend Trump’s anti-Semitism is a corrupt radio host who once wore blackface. That’s the best that Fox and Trump could do.
Thank you to highly respected Jewish leader Dov Hikind for his wonderful statements about me this morning on @foxandfriends.

Bradley Moss provided some background on Fox’s Jewish leader who defended Trump:
I’m a pretty knowledgeable Jew but I had never even heard of this guy before. So I checked and …
… he is a radio host and former politician …
…. barely survived a corruption scandal in the 90s ….
… and wore blackface in 2013.
So, yeah, um, no. https://t.co/OVy38I3vnl

Trump has been blasted from all sides for tweeting hate at New York City hours before the domestic terror attack at a Hanukkah party. Gov. Cuomo (D-NY) has put the blame for the increased attacks on Jews squarely on the president and his rhetoric, as Democrats have been calling out Trump’s fanning the flames of anti-Semitism for years as president.
The only Jewish “leader” that Fox News could find to defend Trump is a corrupt talk show host who was busted for wearing blackface.
That’s the only support out there for Donald Trump.
