Donald Trump has the perfect job to feed his narcissism. Think about it. He has managed to place himself in the center of the news every day that he has been in office. One would imagine that at least an anti-Semitic attack with a machete would pull him out of his self-centeredness. One would be wrong.

POTUS managed to turn a religious attack where one of the victims was listed as in critical condition into a call for all supermen/superwomen to “eradicate the evil scourge of antisemitism:”

‘The anti-Semitic attack in Monsey, New York, on the 7th night of Hanukkah last night is horrific. We must all come together to fight, confront, and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism. Melania and I wish the victims a quick and full recovery.’

The president went on to place himself at center stage by thanking “Jewish leader Dov Hikind for his wonderful statements about me:”

Thank you to highly respected Jewish leader Dov Hikind for his wonderful statements about me this morning on @foxandfriends.’

A man wearing a ski mask and wielding a machete burst into the home of a Jewish leader Saturday night. The attacker managed to stab five Hasidic Jews before they turned back on the stranger. Then, they forced him back outside.

The anti-Semitic attack occurred in Monsey, just a few miles north of New York City on the seventh night of Hanukkah. The president wished the victims “a quick and full recovery:”

‘Melania and I wish the victims a quick and full recovery.’

Some House Democrats urged Trump to more clearly condemn anti-Semitism. Instead,  the president offered thanks for former New York assemblyman Dov Hikind’s remarks when he appeared on Fox News:

‘President Trump is the most pro-Israel proJewish US President of all time. & yet fake media tried to smear him as an anti Semite Never mind that his daughter & grand children R Jewish & that he is the 1st US president to pray at the western wall. That’s how absurd media lies are’
