Trump on Rise of Antisemitic Threats and Attacks: “Sometimes It’s the Reverse”

Also refuses to take responsibility for SEAL’s death
Politics • Views: 40,307

Here’s today’s evidence that there’s something seriously wrong with the man in the White House. Today, when asked about the recent wave of antisemitic threats and attacks across the nation (which is arguably one of the results of Trump’s legitimization and wink-and-nod approach to the far right) the Narcissist in Chief told a group of state attorneys general that “sometimes it’s the reverse.”

We have a dim-witted conspiracy theorist in charge of the nation, whose first impulse will always be to deny any responsibility rather than step up and unequivocally denounce the extremists who helped put him in office.

And this isn’t the only example of Trump’s pathological refusal to take responsibility. Today he also categorically denied any responsibility for the death of the Navy SEAL killed in his disastrous failed raid on Yemen, blaming it instead on the US military: Donald Trump Blames SEAL’s Death On Military: ‘They Lost Ryan’.

Bill Owens, the father of Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens, the Navy SEAL who died in the operation, demanded an investigation into his son’s death over the weekend. Owens further revealed he couldn’t bear to meet Trump at the airport as Ryan’s casket was carried off the military plane last month.

Asked about the matter during an interview with Fox News’ “Fox ‘n’ Friends,” Trump repeatedly said “they” were responsible for the outcome of the mission, in reference to the military.

“This was a mission that was started before I got here. This was something they wanted to do,” he said. “They came to me, they explained what they wanted to do ― the generals ― who are very respected, my generals are the most respected that we’ve had in many decades, I believe. And they lost Ryan.
