There’s media bias, and then there’s total insanity. We caught a taste of that today on Jake Tapper’s program this afternoon. Julia Ioffe of GQ decided to drop the hottest of hot takes in a long, long time: President Donald Trump has radicalized more people than ISIS. Yeah, you read that right.
The panel was discussing the latest string of politically motivated acts of violence. Cesar Sayoc was arrested in Florida after sending explosive devices to top Democrats, former presidents, and celebrities. Robert Bowers committed one of the worst hate crimes in recent memory in Pittsburgh, killing eleven people in a synagogue. Of course, the elite news media is blaming Trump and conservative news media, which formed the crux of today’s discussion. Oh, and Ioffe was one of the ones who seemingly tried to blame American Jews for this shooting for their push to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Did Tapper push back? Nope. No…he did not:

And Jake Tapper did nothing to call out that language

And a word to my fellow American Jews: This president makes this possible. Here. Where you live. I hope the embassy move over there, where you don’t live was worth it.
