Video: Pittsburgh Rabbi Rejects CNN ‘Blame Trump’ Bait

“CNN’s Alisyn Camerota tried to cajole Rabbi Jeffrey Myers into blaming President Donald Trump for the shooting.”

As The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti writes, “Monday morning, in one of his first appearances following the horrific, anti-Semitic attack on his synagogue, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota tried to cajole Rabbi Jeffrey Myers into blaming President Donald Trump for the shooting.”

But Myers wasn’t going to bite, no matter how hard Camerota kept trying.

Myers: “I don’t really foist blame upon any person. Hate does not know religion, race, creed, political party. It’s not a political issue in any way, shape, or form. Hate does not know any of those things.”

“I think you’re raising one of those great questions that people far smarter than I can answer. I do recall this: if we look in the Bible after the story of the flood and Noah, God regretfully says to Noah, ‘I have learned that man from his youth is prone to evil,’ which is, you would think, a horrific thing for God to tell us. The message I get from that is, yes, there is the possibility of hate in all people. But there is also the possibility of good. And I have seen so much good these past two days.”

Undeterred, Camerota tried to get Myers to blame President Donald Trump and to say he wasn’t welcome to visit the Pittsburgh synagogue. “The president of the United States is always welcome. I am a citizen; he is my president. He is certainly welcome.”
