A Jewish Reporter Got to Ask Trump a Question. It Didn’t Go Well.
When Donald J. Trump called on him at a news conference, saying he was looking for a "friendly reporter," Jake Turx was prepared. He still got a tongue-lashing from the president.

This topic would be so easy for Trump to handle if he was just willing to denounce antisemitism with the same passion he denounces the play Hamilton with.

Trump gets so mad and flustered when confronted with facts or things that could possibly be negative against him. Good thing he'll have his adoring horde for a campaign rally this weekend. *eyeroll*

Trump can't handled being challenged because he has no answers and no intellect. Only blind allegiance is ok with the Trump man.

The guy flat out started his question with STATING he hasn't seen anyone accuse Trump of being anti-semitic and acknowledged that three of his grandchildren are Jewish. Trump rambles on anyway. Makes absolutely no sense. Anyone with functioning ears knows that he wasn't accusing him of being against the Jewish population.

I felt so sorry for this man - he was insulted and belittled when he did nothing to deserve such treatment. His question wasn't difficult to understand nor answer but trump made it about him. I hope this man knows that you deserve the same safety as the rest of us!

Orthodox communities voted for Trump overwhelmingly. They did so stupidly, thinking that they would be immune from Trumps contempt. This is what we call a teachable moment.

Shameful and demeaning treatment of this man....telling him to be quiet. He wasn't able to finish his question because 45 needed to turn the question into something about him. He has yet to denounce anti Semitic displays these last days even given the chance.

At this point I'm not even sure that English is Trump's first language!

This was an important question that matters to so many. Why couldn't he have respected the question and the people who are concerned enough to answer it properly? The one he gave was a joke.

I was appalled. Jewish Centers have been plagued with bomb threats and it's not a ruse coming from the Left. He belittled this gentleman. What a profoundly disturbed man up there. This cannot continue. Impeach this psychology disturbed traitor now.
