And of course his other top advisor runs a website that has pro-Israel writers and anti-Semitic readers. Breitbart mirrors the schizophrenia of the new administration.
And this is where the Trump train may jump the tracks.
Trump was a lot like a Rorschach ink-blot test - and maybe Obama was as well. We look at these candidates and see what we want to see in them. Well, maybe some do. When I look at both Trump and Obama, I see flawed human beings like myself. Only one, though, has a dark soul.
The religious right may not care. Once populated with anti-Semites, the fundamentalists decided about a decade ago that Jews were no longer "Jesus-killers" but in fact, God's chosen people, and that one of the signs of the "end times" was the Jews returning to Israel. Of course, "end times" theology is a bunch of gibberish and really isn't supported by the Bible. So for whatever reason, the far-right Christians now say Jews are A-OK with them, so Trump's pro-Israel stance shouldn't piss them off too much. On the other hand, if he fails to outlaw abortion...
The very far-right, on the other hand, including racists, neo-Nazis, and anti-Semites looked at Trump and heard his "dog-whistles" and assumed he was "one of them" - a bigot and a racist. And there is evidence to suggest he is these things. But anti-Semite? Not in a country mile. And even when it comes to race relations, while one could certainly argue he is tone-deaf on the issue, he isn't going to be able to reverse too much without running afoul of some Supreme Court decisions, laws, and even the Constitution.
So the far-right, thinking they elected a man who would "Make America Great Again" - which they believed meant Make America White Again - will be sorely disappointed in the next few years.
"He sold out!" they will say, "to the International Jewish Conspiracy!" Or they might argue, "He became one of those insiders in Washington!" - a nebulous term that really means nothing when you think about it.
As a result, this voting bloc may not be around in the mid-term elections or in four years. Perhaps. It is an opportunity for the Democrats - an opportunity I am highly confident they will fumble.
