There’s been an awful lot of chatter coming from the Left over the past couple of days about President Trump bearing responsibility for the horrific murder of 11 Jews inside a Pittsburg, PA synagogue, at the hands of a deranged, Trump-hating anti-semite. Leftists protesters actually waited in the streets of Pittsburg, PA, for the President who was invited to attend the funerals by the Tree of Life rabbi, Jeffrey Myers, who oversees the synagogue where the massacre took place during a bris ceremony.
President Trump’s daughter Ivanka, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and their three children are all Jewish. President Trump has a very strong relationship with Israel and is the first US President to have followed through on his promise to place the US embassy in Jerusalem.
CNN host, Allison Camerota, attempted to embarrass President Trump by asking Rabbi Jeffrey Meyers if President Trump was welcome to attend the funeral services for the deceased victims. Can anyone even imagine the outrage if Fox News asked a man who just experienced an unimaginable attack against his religious community if President Obama would be welcome to come and show his respect for the victims and their families?

Speaking of President Obama, where was the outrage when it was revealed that the man who managed to hide his entire life up until the time he ran for President, had written about fake girlfriends, and made up racial stories in his autobiography in 1995? Where was the outrage from the Jewish community, who overwhelmingly supported the Democrat candidate for his second term as President, after it was discovered that in his autobiography, he compared the reason why blacks are so angry, is for the same reason that Jews can’t seem to get over the Holocaust?
Politico– One of the more mysterious characters from President Obama’s 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father is the so-called ‘New York girlfriend.’ Obama never referred to her by name, or even by a pseudonym, but he describes her appearance, her voice, and her mannerisms in specific detail.
But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the ‘New York girlfriend’ was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago.
“During an interview in the Oval Office, Obama acknowledged that, while Genevieve was his New York girlfriend, the description in his memoir was a “compression” of girlfriends, including one who followed Genevieve [Cook] when he lived in Chicago,” Maraniss writes in his new biography, an excerpt of which was published online today by Vanity Fair.
“In Dreams from My Father, Obama chose to emphasize a racial chasm that unavoidably separated him from the woman he described as his New York girlfriend,” Maraniss writes, offering a passage from the book in which they go to see a play by a black playwright:
One night I took her to see a new play by a black playwright. It was a very angry play, but very funny. Typical black American humor. The audience was mostly black, and everybody was laughing and clapping and hollering like they were in church. After the play was over, my friend started talking about why black people were so angry all the time. I said it was a matter of remembering—nobody asks why Jews remember the Holocaust, I think I said—and she said that’s different, and I said it wasn’t, and she said that anger was just a dead end. We had a big fight, right in front of the theater. When we got back to the car she started crying. She couldn’t be black, she said. She would if she could, but she couldn’t. She could only be herself, and wasn’t that enough.
“None of this happened with Genevieve,” Maraniss writes. “She remembered going to the theater only once with Barack, and it was not to see a work by a black playwright.” When asked about this decades later, during a White House interview, Obama acknowledged that the scene did not happen with Genevieve. “It is an incident that happened,” he said. But not with her. He would not be more specific, but the likelihood is that it happened later, when he lived in Chicago. “That was not her,” he said. “That was an example of compression I was very sensitive in my book not to write about my girlfriends, partly out of respect for them. So that was a consideration. I thought that [the anecdote involving the reaction of a white girlfriend to the angry black play] was a useful theme to make about sort of the interactions that I had in the relationships with white girlfriends. And so, that occupies, what, two paragraphs in the book? My attitude was it would be dishonest for me not to touch on that at all … so that was an example of sort of editorially how do I figure that out?”
