Now Trump’s a Holocaust denier?
The Democrats are really turning up the heat on President Trump’s executive order calling for extreme vetting of immigrants from seven countries having a history of terrorism.
But Sen. Tim Kaine takes the cake on this one.
During his appearance Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” host Chuck Todd asked the Virginia Democrat for his thoughts on Trump’s executive order on immigration.
Kaine, who was Hillary Clinton’s running mate in the 2016 presidential election, didn’t hold back a whit.
Although the order is silent on the issue of religion, he referred to it as a religious test and noted that the administration’s Holocaust Remembrance Day statement Friday made no reference to Jews.
“So you put a religious test on Muslims, and you try to scrub reference to Jews in the Holocaust remembrance. This was horribly, horribly mishandled,” Kaine said.
“That’s a tough charge, senator. Do you think it’s more than a coincidence that it all happened on Friday?” Todd asked.
At that point Kaine stepped it up a notch and brought up the much touted but disproved notion that Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon is a white supremacist.
“We have to remember this. This is what Holocaust denial is. It’s either to deny that it happened or many Holocaust deniers acknowledge, ‘Oh, yeah, people were killed, but it was a lot of innocent people. Jews weren’t targeted,'” Kaine said. “The fact that they did that and imposed this religious test against Muslims in the executive orders on the same day is not a coincidence.”
Folks on social media howled in laughter at that one.

Trump denounced the Obama administration’s refusal to veto a United Nations Security Council resolution lambasting the Jewish state of Israel’s settlements in the West Bank.
In addition, his daughter Ivanka converted yo Judaism before marrying his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who was raised as an Orthodox Jew.
Trump met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for nearly 90 minutes in September when he was a presidential candidate, and the president invited the prime minister and his wife Sara to visit him and first lady Melania at the White House at their earliest opportunity.
