Conservative Jewish reporter tries to defend Trump, gets Trump tongue-lashing anyway

One of my favorite/saddest parts from the trainwreck news conference on Thursday: Trump demands a question from a "friendly" media person. A reporter from a new conservative Orthodox Jewish newspaper in Brooklyn -- who supported Trump in the election -- gets up and gives a preface (addressing other reporters) in which he says no one from his community has ever called Trump an anti-semite. Then he asks what Trump will do to protect Jewish centers from recent threats and bombings. At which point Trump cuts him off, tells him to sit down, "quiet, quiet, quiet" and accuses him of being rude, complicated, and deceitful. Beauty.

Later the editor of the paper said they still support Trump.
