Reality TV Star Reveals She Wrote Message Shared by Trump Attacking “Liberal Jews”
A reality TV star, Siggy Flicker, has come forward as the author of a controversial message that former President Donald Trump used to attack “liberal Jews” on Truth Social. Trump shared the post during Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and faced widespread backlash. Flicker, a former Real Housewives of New Jersey star and a long-time Trump supporter, had posted the flyer on her social media platforms.
Flicker’s Message Praised Trump for Support of Israel
In the message shared by Flicker, she lauded Trump for several actions benefiting Israel and Jewish people. She commended him for moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, and settlements in the West Bank. Flicker also highlighted Trump’s signing of the “Never Again” Education bill, which funds Holocaust awareness. The flyer concluded by calling Trump “one of the greatest antisemites of our time.”
Trump’s Controversial Addition
When Trump shared the message, he added a reminder to “liberal Jews” who he claimed voted to “destroy America & Israel.” He also wished them a Happy New Year and urged them to make better choices in the future. This addition drew further criticism and intensified the backlash.
Flicker Proudly Owns Her Message
Flicker openly took credit for writing the entire message, expressing her pride in it and defending her support for Trump. She responded to critics and attacked the liberal entertainment media for labeling Trump, who she believes is the most pro-Israel president, as an antisemite.
Trump’s History with Jewish People
This recent controversy is not the first time Trump has faced criticism for his comments about Jewish people. In 2019, he made a statement suggesting that American Jews who vote Democrat show “a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.” Furthermore, Trump has been associated with individuals who hold antisemitic views, such as dining with Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and rapper Kanye West after the latter made antisemitic comments.
Implications on Trump’s Presidential Nomination
Despite the controversy surrounding Trump’s comments and actions, he is currently leading the race for the Republican presidential nomination. However, he also faces 91 criminal charges across four indictments. It remains to be seen how these controversies will impact his chances.
The revelation that Siggy Flicker wrote the controversial message shared by Trump has stirred significant backlash. It has reignited discussions about Trump’s history with Jewish people and his support among his base. As the race for the Republican presidential nomination continues, these controversies will undoubtedly play a role in shaping public opinion.
