Last Friday, March 16, it snowed a little bit in the morning. It’s typical. It may well be the month where spring begins, but March is relatively cold and chances for snow can happen. This is not a new revelation. Well, for one D.C. councilmember this was the work of the Jewish people. No, I’m not kidding. Trayon White Sr. of the District of Columbia’s eighth ward posted a brief Facebook video, where he accuses the Rothschild family of controlling the weather in order to create natural disasters for the takeover of urban areas. It’s insane—and this line is common among anti-Semitic conspiracy theories (via WaPo):
A D.C. lawmaker responded to a brief snowfall Friday by publishing a video in which he espoused a conspiracy theory that Jewish financiers control the weather.
D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8) posted the video to his official Facebook page at 7:21 a.m. as snow flurries were hitting the nation’s capital. The video, shot through the windshield of a car driving west on Interstate 695 through downtown Washington, shows snowy skies while White narrates.
“Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” he says. “And D.C. keep talking about, ‘We a resilient city.’ And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”
White is occupying the seat of disgraced former mayor of D.C. and councilman Marion Barry, who died in 2014. White called Barry, who said Asian business owners “ought to go” in his ward, a “living legend.”
I really do apologize. I work very closely with the Jewish community and never want to offend anyone, especially with Anti-Semitic remarks. pic.twitter.com/TvUgf55UeF— Trayon White (@trayonwhite) March 19, 2018
This isn’t the only controversial social media post. Fox5 DC found a post showing White at a gun range shooting a white person as a target. He’s also been cited for driving with a suspended license. Yet, while White has apologized, saying he works with Jewish community members and didn’t want to offend anyone with anti-Semitic remarks, he’s made them before—and it was about the Rothschilds [emphasize mine]:
Councilmember for Ward 8 @trayonwhite ‘s social media posts under question including a now removed picture of him shooting at a target of a white man. @fox5dc has learned of a 2017 arrest in DC for driving w/ a suspended license. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/65k9eXMyXD— Marina Marraco (@MarinaMarraco) March 20, 2018
Just last month,@trayonwhite pulled-over in P.G Co. for questionable tags. Turns out they are Marion Barry’s (died in 2014) council tags. White was still driving on a suspended license. Many of his videos on social (incl one from Friday)are shot while he appears to be driving 2/2— Marina Marraco (@MarinaMarraco) March 20, 2018
At a council breakfast in February with the Mayor, and with several Jewish Councilmembers present, White said: "This whole concept with the Rothschilds controlling the world bank as we all know, infusing dollars into major cities. They really, pretty much control the federal government."

White has made several other posts to social media that many have questioned, including a picture which he took down once he took office. The photo appears to show White at a gun range firing at a target of a white man with the caption "Peace and love, now somebody call your boy a preacher."
According to police sources, White's D.C. driver's license is currently suspended and has been for some time. FOX 5 obtained a criminal complaint, which detailed White's arrest in June 2017.
White was arrested in D.C. for driving with a suspended license after being pulled over for not having the headlights on. That case was dismissed by the office of the Attorney General.
He also posted a video on Facebook, where he was pulled over by a Prince George's County police officer, and it is revealed that his license plates were they were actually registered to the deceased former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry. He made complaints to viewers about the officer in that video, but was actually still driving with a suspended license and was cited for this.
Ward 1 councilmember Brianne K. Nadeau said of the video and the apology, “I believe he is being truthful when he says he didn’t realize what his statement implied,” said Nadeau. “It is my sincere hope that my colleague has learned from this experience …”
This city is in a different universe.
