‘They’re not even trying to hide it’
To protect Donald Trump from the possibility of a New York indictment, Republicans have been regurgitating his anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.
Trump has stated he is going to be charged by Manhattan Attorney Alvin Bragg Jr. in a situation regarding porn-star Stormy Daniels and has tried to damage the examination by implying the prosecutor is being supported by magnate George Soros– a claim echoed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other Republicans.
“They’re not even trying to hide the whole international Jewish bankers, anti-Semitic trope anymore,” Joe Scarborough said on Morning Joe.
“You’ve got House leaders attacking international Jewish bankers, you’ve got Ron DeSantis, who, again, you know, one week is repeating Kremlin talking points about the war and territorial disputes. The next week, he’s blaming Donald Trump paying off a porn star for an alleged affair $130,000 that already sent his lawyer to jail. He’s blaming that on international Jewish bankers.”
“Like, this is the great white hope for the Republican Party?” he added. “As [Muhammad] Ali would say, more like the great white dope. What a joke! Again, let’s just call it what it is — it’s anti-Semitism.”
