Trump, the election and the Jewish connection
This blog appeared 04-28-16 as an opinion article in The Kauai Garden Island News;
Bernie Sanders is probably less Jewish than the other two top contenders running for President. He is only Jewish because his parents happened to be Jewish, Bernie is a non practicing Jew.
Donald Trump's pride and joy, his daughter Ivanka converted to Orthodox Judaism when she married back in 2009, making all of Trumps Grandchildren through Ivanka, Jewish.
Hillary and Bill Clinton's daughter Chelsea is also married to a Jewish man, however Chelsea did not convert to Judaism.Therefore she is not Jewish in the eyes of orthodox Judaism, however the reform movement has no problem with her being Jewish.
The three main candidates running for Potus all have their Jewish connection. While others say,"if Sanders wins he will be the first Jewish President, If Hillary wins she will be the first woman President, and if Trump wins, the joke goes, he will be the last President."
On a similar note, a Facebook friend of mine would rather see their child smoking pot than a Donald Trump supporter. Seriously? I am able to be independent and not controlled by one party or one way of thinking as are the masses. How about you?
People seem to have zero tolerance for Trump supporters. They consider themselves free thinkers, yet they post nothing but hate against Trump on social media--verses posting positive thought about their candidate?
I talk to people on the streets and at the Supermarket, on the bus, and wherever I may be. People approach me and tell me they like Trump but are afraid to even talk to their wives, husbands, boyfriends or girlfriends in fear of rejection and being in the doghouse. According to political polls people are obviously voting for Trump, however most people are not copping to it.
How does this happen? Many people vote for Trump but will not admit it publicly. It's somewhat like playing with yourself, that's right, the 'M' word. Everybody has done it at some point, however most never admit to it.
The Good news for me,(since I'm Jewish) whomever wins this coming election---means America will have a Jewish connection in the White-house. We will either have a 'Schmuck' or a 'Mensch,'the only problem remains, who is who?
Bagels, lox and dancing the Israeli Horah at the Inauguration! Can everybody say, OY!
