The Difference In The Notes Left At Israel’s Holocaust Museum By Trump & Obama Say It All

President Trump concluded his Israel trip today with a visit to Yad Vashem, the Israeli museum dedicated to honoring the six million Jewish victims of Nazi genocide in the Holocaust, as is customary for visiting heads of state.

Like his predecessors before him, Trump was expected to leave a meaningful note in the guestbook, expressing his reflections and his condolences for those that were slaughtered by the Nazi regime; perhaps some introspective words about his own popularity among anti-Semites and how facing the visceral suffering that those sentiments has truly reached him on an emotional level.

On International Holocaust Day in January, the White House and

Press Secretary Sean Spicer recently found himself in hot water

The handing of top-secret Israeli intelligence over to his Russian taskmasters last week was just an insult on top of a long list of injury.

Trump has wasted too many chances to atone himself, has humiliated himself at too many instances where respect for others was demanded. We have to stop pretending that he gives one iota of consideration to anyone not named Trump.
