Executive director of Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect Steven Goldstein slammed Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany on Tuesday over the President’s hesitance to disavow anti-Semitism.
At one point, Goldstein even asked McEnany, “have you no ethics?”
During a segment on CNN, McEnany tried to argue that the President had disavowed anti-Semitism in the past, reading a quote where the President claimed, “I want peace in this country and I want to stop crime.” She then added that she’s tired of people using the “veil of anti-Semitism to further their own political causes,” then asked Goldstein if the believes that “the president does not like Jews and is prejudiced against Jews.”
Quick to respond, Goldstein said, “you bet.”
Goldstein later launched into a full on rebuke of McEnany and others like her.
“You know what Kayleigh? I’m tired of commentators like you from the right trotting out his daughter, trotting out his son-in-law as talking points against the president’s anti-Semitism. They are Jewish, but that is not a talking point against anti-Semitism—and that is a disgrace!”
“Have you no ethics than to invoke people’s religion as a talking point? That itself is anti-Semitic.”
McEnany seemed to respond in a manner which mocked Goldstein, saying, “let’s make this a dialogue instead of a monologue. Do you think the president likes his daughter?”However, this was a question that Goldstein refused to answer.
Goldstein later defended his criticism of McEnany and Trump, saying that “when Donald Trump had an opportunity to speak out strongly against anti-Semitism, he’s talking about the electoral college. How ridiculous.”
