Of course, no one who has been paying literally any attention whatsoever over the past several years should be surprised by any of this, as Trump’s…let’s just call it “take” on the Jews has been well established for some time now. As a reminder, this is a guy who:

And no, the fact that Trump has Jewish grandchildren, as his allies like to remind people, doesn’t absolve him of any of this!
