President Donald Trump is being accused of using anti-Semitic language. Again.
As with so many things involving our 45th president, this all began on Twitter, where Trump criticized Todd for his reporting on North Korea.
Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of Fake News NBC just stated that we have given up so much in our negotiations with North Korea, and they have given up nothing. Wow, we haven’t given up anything & they have agreed to denuclearization (so great for World), site closure, & no more testing!

However, Todd is Jewish on his mother’s side — and, given that Judaism is matrilineal, that makes him Jewish. That normally wouldn’t present any problem or controversy.
“Sleepy eyes” is an anti Semitic term that was and is stilled used by neo- nazis groups relating to “how to spot a Jew.” Donald Trump just used anti semitic terminology against a Jewish reporter. Why are people not talking about this?! https://t.co/cy54ZEE92v

Chadwick is referring to a propaganda piece published in “Der Giftpilz,” a children’s book published by notorious Nazi propagandist Julius Streicher, a man who was considered too anti-Semitic for the Nazi party and got himself kicked out. In “Der Giftpilz,” he instructed young Nazis on “How to Spot a Jew.”
This is a lie.
She based this entire tweet off of a highly unreliable Twitter account and claimed it as fact.

Here is the only part that mentions anything about the eyes: “One can also recognize a Jew by his lips. His lips are usually puffy. The lower lip often protrudes. The eyes are different too. The eyelids are mostly thicker and more fleshy than ours. The Jewish look is wary and piercing. One can tell from his eyes that he is a deceitful person.” – READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/media-freaks-over-trump-anti-semitic-comment-but-look-where-it-really-came-from/” target=”_blank”]
