House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler went after both President Trump and Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar in a single tweet that condemned the burgeoning anti-Semitism in recent political discourse.
A Jewish congressman from New York, Nadler attacked Trump for saying that Jews who vote for Democrats show “either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.” Nadler also hit both Tlaib of Michigan and Omar of Minnesota for posting a cartoon to their Instagram stories that showed a cartoon widely regarded as anti-Semitic.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The growing anti-Semitism in our political dialogue is repugnant. @realdonaldtrump’s comments about disloyalty are a vicious and dangerous anti-Semitic trope. And the Carlos Latuff cartoon forwarded by @RepRashida and @Ilhan can surely be read for its vile underlying message,” the 72-year-old Democratic congressman tweeted Thursday.
Tlaib and Omar were recently called out for posting a cartoon in which the two congresswomen are being physically silenced by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Trump. The artist, Carlos Latuff, has a history of anti-Semitic work, the Examiner reports.

Oof. Looks like both Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib shared this awful Carlos Latuff cartoon in Instagram stories yesterday. In 2006, Latuff came in second in Iran’s International Holocaust Cartoon Contest, which is a thing that exists, in case you thought the TL couldn’t get any worse. pic.twitter.com/uwyBPAsz7T
