Rick Santorum Blames Anti-Semitism On Obama, Spews Lies To Defend Trump On CNN (VIDEO)


CNN invited Rick Santorum on to help clarify Trump’s disturbing inability to condemn anti-Semitism and things went about as well as expected.

Rather than hold Trump accountable, Santorum – a former senator and perennial presidential also-ran – let muscle memory take over and started screaming about Obama. Seriously screaming.

It was nonsensical on every level. According to Rick, the recent rise of hate crimes in the United States following Trump’s election are Obama’s fault because he wasn’t good enough buddies with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Sensing the audience scratching their heads, Santorum also claimed that Obama refused to condemn the rise of anti-Semitism on college campuses during his time in office.

“I’ve got to tell you, Chris, this is why you hear about fake news. For eight years — eight years! — the Obama administration sat by and said nothing about the increasing anti-Semitism on college campuses!”

Unfortunately CNN did not bother to challenge Santorum on this point, but it was a blatant lie. Here, for example, is Obama explicitly condemning anti-Semitism, both globally and in America, using the kind of forceful language that Trump has never been able to muster.

Here, tonight, we must confront the reality that around the world, anti-Semitism is on the rise. We cannot deny it.

“When we see some Jews leaving major European cities — where their families have lived for generations — because they no longer feel safe; when Jewish centers are targeted from Mumbai to Overland Park, Kansas; when swastikas appear on college campuses — when we see all that and more, we must not be silent.

Needless to say, Santorum is not an authority on the suffering of the Jewish community. The Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, which is an authority ont he suffering of the Jewish community, recently published a scathing letter slamming Trump’s bizarre failure to condemn anti-Semitism. In the letter they explicitly say Trump has the worst record on this of any president in history.

Scream on, Rick. Nobody is buying it.
