Give him a break.

Just like AOC posting a video of Falwell Jr. from 4 years ago & claiming it was last weekend, it's just an innocent mistake.
"Progressives" always life in the past. Pining of the good old days of Stalin, Chairman Mao. You know Socialism, where you could kill those that opposed you without having to actually defend your faulty logic.

Pranked? Dims have been Pro Palestinian forever. And they were against moving the embassy to Jerusalem. Someday, many old line Jews in the US will figure this out and quit voting for the party that is actually against the Jews.
I've never understood this.
It's a very deep, complex, and multi-generational phenomenon that defies explanation. A lot of it can be traced back to early 20th century Ashkenaz Jewish ancestors who were new immigrants, crammed into tenements in the Lower East Side of NYC and the Bronx, and exploited in the textile factories. They became strong advocates of worker's rights and socialism, like their not far removed relatives in Russia.

The help that the Jewish community in America gave to the black community in the struggle for civil rights legislation and activism has also been repaid by massive betrayal and usurpation. How Jewish people continue to throw blind support to the now non-oppressed is also mind blowing.

On a more basic level some of it has to do with geography too. More Jewish people live in the areas that are largely lefty echo chambers.

I also think most Jews view their religion as almost a club, more secular in nature. They like identifying with the group and recognize the traditions, but are not largely influenced by the tenants of the religion, and feel little connection to Jerusalem.

And he was anti establishment.
Kinda.

He clearly is not your standard candidate but I don't see a very visible millionaire who has been rubbing elbows with the power elite for the last few decades as really so anti establishment.

He won the Republican primary based in a large part to being anti-establishment, whether he really was/is or it was just perceived that he was, it was a huge separator between him and the rest....Republican voters are sick of the party.
Yes Hillary was a thoroughly unlikable candidate, and corrupt to the bone to boot, that certainly played a part, but look at what the voters in the mid-west cared about and that is why Trump won the general.
