White House RWNJ messaging chaos continues.
Trump honors pastor who said Jews are doomed to hell at Hannukah event
Trump invited right-wing Pastor Robert Jeffress to the White House Hanukkah event on Wednesday despite Jeffress' history of bigoted remarks against multiple faith groups, including Jews.
The event was billed by the White House as “a Hanukkah Reception.”
“What a tremendous faith leader you are, a tremendous man you are,” Trump said, singling Jeffress out from the stage. A few minutes later, Trump asked Jeffress to come up on stage with him and deliver remarks.
“Robert Jeffress, I didn't know him but I watched him, I watched him on the different shows and I said, 'I like that guy, man he talks really great about me' and I like people that talk well about me,” said Trump.
