Is Trump Getting Talking Points From Neo-Nazis?

Donald Trump opened his address to Congress Tuesday night by condemning the wave of anti-Semitic attacks that have rattled Jewish communities all across the country in recent weeks.

These attacks - he said - should remind us that "we are still a divided nation".

"Recent threats targeting Jewish community centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week's shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all of its very ugly forms."

Very presidential, right?

Well, just a few hours before condemning those attacks, Donald Trump hinted that people - AKA the Jews - might be "faking" them to further some sort of agenda.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro told Buzzfeed News that Trump had mentioned to a meeting of state attorneys general that the purpose of the attacks wasn't yet clear because "Sometimes it's the reverse, to make people - or to make others - look bad".

That's the kind rhetoric you usually see on neo-Nazi websites, but now it's coming straight out of the mouth of the President of the United States.

So why is the mainstream media not talking about it?
