‘Take a Look In The Mirror’: Trump Gets Destroyed By Jewish Columnist Over ‘Absurd Jexodus’ Boast

Paul Waldman, a Jewish columnist for The Washington Post, shut down Donald Trump’s notion that Jews are fleeing the Democratic Party to become Republicans after the president claimed Democrats are anti-Semites.

Writing “Take a look in the mirror,” Waldman stated that he was “raised in an intensely Zionist family with a long history of devotion and sacrifice for Israel,” he can safely speak for many Jews by saying: Thanks, but no thanks.

“President Trump is making a play for the Jews. And like many Republicans before him, he seems to think that this time, American Jews will finally abandon their loyalty to the Democratic Party and join the GOP. It’s an old prediction, and it always turns out to be wrong,” he wrote before adding, “But, this time, it’s more wrong than ever. If Trump wants to know why Jews won’t become Republicans, he should look in a mirror.”

Responding to a Trump tweet about a former staffer, Elizabeth Pipko, who appeared on Fox News to proclaim Democrats are facing a “Jexodus,” Waldman said not so fast.

“Pipko is the spokesperson for Jexodus, which you’ll be surprised to learn is actually not a group of ex-Democrats, but the creation of a Republican political consultant,” he explained.

“Republicans have long thought of this as some kind of delusion for which Jews could be cured …. And now, Trump has added a new twist, one perfectly appropriate for him,” he continued. “He plainly hopes that if Jews are feeling unsettled or afraid by rising anti-Semitism, then they’ll rush to embrace his authoritarian politics, as he poses as their defender and protector.”

“American Jews aren’t liberals by accident or out of some collective delusion, but because of a set of values that grows from their history and that gets passed from generation to generation,” Waldman wrote, revealing his own family’s involvement in the civil rights movement.

Waldman then smirked at Trump’s daughter Ivanka’s conversion to Judaism, while pointing out the president can use her a human shield when it comes to his own anti-Semitism.

“Jews know exactly who Trump is,” he wrote. “They don’t care that his daughter converted to Judaism when she got married (and, really, if there’s a more goyishe Jew than Ivanka Trump, I can’t think of who it might be). They don’t care how many times he accuses Democrats of being the real anti-Semites, or how many times he says, ‘I am the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life’.”

“To paraphrase Andrew Gillum, Trump may not be an anti-Semite, but all the anti-Semites think he’s an anti-Semite,” he continued, before dropping the mic on Trump and the GOP.

“In short, Jews will not be abandoning their longstanding ideological and partisan home in the Democratic Party in order to jump over to a party that opposes everything they believe in, and that has cast its lot with a president who has built his political career on encouraging voters to be as hostile as possible to those they think are not like them,” Waldman claimed. “Jews are smart enough to know that Trump is not the solution to their problem. He is the problem.”
