Almost three years into this whole President Trump catastrophe, you'd think we'd have lost our ability to be surprised, but then the guy goes ahead and calls himself the Messiah.
On Tuesday, Trump made a blatantly anti-semitic remark in the Oval Office, accusing Jews who support Muslim Congresswomen and the Democratic Party of being "disloyal." Accusing Jews of disloyalty is part of a proud anti-semitic tradition that goes all the way back to the Persian Empire.
The 80% of Jews who vote Democratic—and all Jews who hate to see the President of the United States evoke anti-Semitic tropes—condemned the comment, and to try to redeem himself, Trump cited a conspiracy theorist and declared himself King of the Jews in his morning tweet storm.
Trump quoted Wayne Allyn Root, a conspiracy theorist who not only spells "Allen" wrong but also insists that Charlottesville was a hoax, who argue that Israeli Jews see Trump as "the second coming of God."
