Rabbi Debunks Leftmedia Anti-Trump Narrative

Behind the scenes, Trump shows a surprisingly “warm and personal side” that America rarely sees.

Following the anti-Semitic attack on the Tree of Life synagogue last Saturday, which left 11 people dead, the Leftmedia worked to create a narrative that blamed President Donald Trump’s rhetoric for fostering the hatred that motivated the atrocity. In an interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota prior to Trump’s visiting the synagogue, Tree of Life Rabbi Jeffrey Myers refused to badmouth the president, insisting, “The president of the United States is always welcome. I’m a citizen; he is my president. He is certainly welcome.”

On Tuesday, amid a crowd of protesters, Trump and his family visited the Tree of Life synagogue, where he spoke privately with Rabbi Myers and offered his condolences. Following Trump’s visit, Myers was again interviewed by CNN’s Camerota, who renewed her negative narrative against the president. But once again the good rabbi refused, saying that he was “pleasantly surprised” by Trump’s warmth.

Myer further related, “I was privileged to have a private 15 or 20 minutes with the [Trump] family. The president was very warm, very consoling. He put his hand on my shoulder and the first question he asked me was, ‘Rabbi, tell me — how are you doing?’ And I must say throughout the time we spent together, I was pleasantly surprised by a warm and personal side to the president that I don’t think America has ever seen.”

Actually, the rabbi’s personal experience with Trump has been affirmed by many others. As Mark Alexander noted in 2016, “[Trump] is an interesting case study. On a personal level, those we know who are closest to him say that he is very personable and fair, that he demonstrates integrity and humility, and that he treats people with dignity and respect.” In a conversation Alexander had with a longtime friend who managed Trump’s personal security team prior to his nomination, he was told that, despite all of Trump’s brazen, brash bravado in public — his “New Yorker” side — he was universally admired by those on his staff as generous, kind, and fair to those around him, and that his personal interactions with guests were warm and accommodating. Yes, that is the polar opposite of his brawling public persona, but it’s still vintage Trump.

Even exiting Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), who often butted heads with Trump, confirmed this week that when visiting with Trump at the White House or other venues, he was very personal and hospitable. It’s too bad more of that Trump doesn’t come through in his public comments and interactions.
