Donald Trump has claimed emphatically that he is “the least anti-Semitic person you’ve ever seen in your entire life.”
Yet Trump has now been unmistakably identified by all 17 United States Intelligence agencies as the direct cause of the loss of thousands of jobs held by Jews throughout the United States and the world.
Since Trump’s election, talk show hosts and stand-up comics have directed their mirth-making attention towards the President because the jokes practically write themselves. And with the emergence of self-writing jokes, Jewish comedy writers have become obsolete and are now being fired by the tens of thousands.
Jews working for The Late Show Starring Steven Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and Full Frontal with Samantha Bee have all been sacked. (No writers have lost jobs with The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon because the show sucks and had employed no Jews.) Judd Apatow, Woody Allen, and Mel Brooks have all filed for bankruptcy and Larry David has gone into hiding to escape irate creditors
And what does President Trump have to say about all this misery and strife being visited upon the Jewish people? Today Trump tweeted:
The "intelligence" services and Fake News have said I caused all these problems, but as usual they lied. It wasn't me. It was ....
My thanks to Samantha Bee, whose original line "Jokes don't write themselves. Jokes are written by Jews" inspired this post.
