Obama Apparently Thinks He's the 'Closest Thing to a Jew That Has Ever Sat in This Office’

I will never understand our president. His lack of self-awareness is breathtaking, he thinks he’s restored the U.S. as the most respected country in the world, and, apparently, believes he’s the ‘closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat’ in the Oval Office.

In an interview by an Israeli TV station, David Axelrod, former adviser to the president, recalled the president saying this amid criticisms he doesn’t support Israel enough, JPupdates.com reported.

“You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office,” the president told Axelrod. “For people to say that I am anti-Israel or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.”

White House press secretary Josh Earnest endorsed the sentiment Tuesday, saying Mr. Obama gave a heartfelt speech at a Jewish synagogue in Washington last month that expressed “the kinds of common bonds and common values that are embodied in his administration that are [also] advocated by the Jewish community.”

“The president does feel that kind of kinship,” Mr. Earnest said.

In case your memory fails you, Ben Shapiro has compiled an exhaustive timeline of Obama’s “anti-Israel hatred.” So, how he could say such a thing with a straight face is beyond me.
