Sore loser Hillary Rodham-Clinton continues to lead “the resistance” from the shadows. On Tuesday, Mrs. Clinton sent out a Twitter missive suggested that President Trump was to blame for an uptick in anti-Semitic vandalism.
Following several incidents including the desecration of graves in a Jewish cemetery as well as a series of bomb threats to Jewish community centers, Clinton slithered out to call for Trump to publicly denounce the ugliness as though they were somehow his fault.
JCC threats, cemetery desecration & online attacks are so troubling & they need to be stopped. Everyone must speak out, starting w/ @POTUS.

Joining Clinton with indirectly calling the POTUS a Nazi was the Jewish Anne Frank Center which has now entered the ring of partisan politics.

Trump took the bait and on Tuesday denounced anti-Semitism while blundering into yet another one of the traps that the left and its allies have laid for him. The calls for him to denounce the vandalism came during an appearance at a new museum to honor African-American history but that Trump was reaching out to blacks in a sign of unity that was obscured by the media’s fixation on blaming Trump for a purported rise in hostility toward Jews.
According to USA Today “Trump too late in denouncing anti-Semitic acts, critics say”:
President Trump spoke out Tuesday against a series of bomb threats against Jewish community centers across the nation after coming under fire for sidestepping earlier opportunities to condemn several waves of anti-Semitic acts since he took office last month.
It was a statement that anti-discrimination groups and Democrats say was too long in the making.
Touring a new museum devoted to African-American history, Trump said Tuesday he will do what he can to improve race relations and denounced recent threats and vandalism aimed at Jews.
“The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful, and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil,” Trump said after touring the National Museum of African American History and Culture. In an earlier interview on MSNBC, Trump said, “Anti-Semitism is horrible, and it’s going stop and it has to stop.”
Trump had been criticized for passing up previous chances to denounce a spate of anti-Semitic incidents that include desecration of a Jewish cemetery and bomb threats targeting Jewish community centers. Federal authorities have been investigating bomb threats to at least 10 Jewish community centers, including in Alabama, Ohio and Illinois. No one was injured, and the threats appeared to be hoaxes, the Jewish Community Center Association of North America told NBC News on Monday.
While Trump’s statement was a clear repudiation of the latest incidents, critics say it’s too little, too late after his presidential campaign attracted some prominent anti-Semites and white nationalists.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump’s critics are being unfair and that Trump’s comments are “never good enough.”
And that’s the point – nothing that Trump says will EVER be good enough for those determined to see the will of the voters reversed by his removal from office.
The identities of the culprits in the vandalism of graves and bomb threats have not been made public. In the stampede to judgment, for all that anyone knows, it could be pro-Clinton actors falsely staging hate crimes in order to blame them on Trump.
For Clinton it was a theme that she repeatedly hammered during the acrimonious race for the White House and like the New York Times story on administration figures communicating with the Russians, it is more recycled campaign trail attack material bring rolled out for a second try.
Not that Hillary or Obama have ever felt compelled to denounce the vicious attacks on white Trump supporters or violent mobs that ransacked the campus at UC Berkeley.
Trump’s people badly need to get their act together in combating what have become relentless, rolling waves of attacks that are constantly shifting and that the media broadcasts 24/7. The left smells blood after their big win in forcing out Michael Flynn and the less significant takedown of Breitbart’s Milo Yiannapoulos in what has the marks of a proxy attack on Steve Bannon and they are ready to move in for the kill.
