There’s so much for the candidates to cover, and every issue is important. I’m not so self-centered as to think that all they need to talk about is anti-Semitism. I think most candidates have addressed it with a quick answer or correspondence with organizations like the Anti-Defamation League or American Jewish Committee. Bernie Sanders has fallen short on addressing leftist anti-Semitism or really understanding why some Jews feel that there is anti-Semitism on the left.
“I think truth is so important because how do you know if you can trust someone if they’re a perpetual liar? There’s a difference between making a mistake or changing your mind as opposed to lying to deceive, confuse, or worse. Trump is just one lie, one transgression, one lawsuit after the other. It’s exhausting. I wouldn’t trust him. I wouldn’t leave him alone at my house with my children or with my husband. And I wouldn’t trust him to make a business deal. “
“I don’t like anyone who reminds me of Donald Trump and has that cult mentality of a sort of populist candidate; someone who thinks they’re the best person and only they can do what needs to be done. I see similarities between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump and it bothers me. Bernie’s not on my radar for support. I want someone diplomatic, someone who will actually move the needle forward and knows there’s another side of the aisle to deal with. I don’t think he’s the person that would move the needle forward. I think, like Trump, he’s more of a divisive type. “
