Asking a question only the liberal media can get away with, the New York Times asked if Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are “good for the Jews?”
With the media intent on painting President Donald Trump as an anti-Semite in the aftermath of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that claimed the lives of 11 people, Kushner, who is Jewish, and wife Ivanka, who converted to Judaism, present an obstacle that must be overcome.
Following the Tree of Life massacre, there is deep division in the Jewish community about Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. https://t.co/GxEhkY094H

“For Jews who are deeply opposed to Donald Trump and truly believe he is an anti-Semite, it’s deeply problematic that he’s got a Jewish son-in-law and daughter. How can that be?” Dr. Jonathan D. Sarna, professor of American Jewish history at Brandeis University, told The Times.
While some consider Kushner and Ivanka a positive force for pro-Israel policies, other Jews see the couple as “wolves in sheep’s clothing, allowing Mr. Trump to brush aside criticism that his words have fueled the uptick in violent attacks against Jews,” The Times posited.
The president’s oldest daughter and son-in-law were named “the world’s most influential Jews” by the Jerusalem Post in a 2017 top-50 list, besting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The reaction on social media was intense, with The Times being skewered over the “disgusting” article.

This is seriously disgusting….faith is not a club or the cool kids table where you can forbid people to sit….truly disgusting. How does this help America? How does this help Jewish people suffering from anti-semitism by people who have hated Jewish people for all time?
