MSNBC Panel Compares Trump to Farrakhan After Synagogue Massacre

‘That’s how he rose, that’s his whole career, that’s how he became president’

EXCERPT:

WEISS: "It’s a good point, but on the other hand, I really can’t think of anything less helpful than to be politicizing this. Whether it’s someone cheering Louis Farrakhan, as Linda Sarsour did at the Women's March on the left, or someone on the right cheering Donald Trump. I think we need to step back from that and stop trying to politicize every aspect of this. I mean, this man hated Jews. He actually hated Trump, as it happens. And, I mean, Jews stand for certain values. And concern for the downtrodden is one of them. And, you know, in a certain sense, he knew where he was going. And he violated the most sanctified space that there is, I mean where Jews go to connect with their God and to pray. And the concept of trying to blame this party or that party or this statement or that statement, I just think it’s a dead-end. Some people are trying to, you know, discourage Donald Trump from coming to Pittsburgh. He should come. We want to talk to people. We want people to see what’s here. We want people to experience Pittsburgh. I mean, you know, ideas don’t scare us. And I — you know, to point this way, this finger or that finger, whether we’re deplorables or whether it’s enemies of the people and the press, it’s just not helpful. And it should be toned down, both among people and frankly among the press as well."
