Yes, the president of the United States took the opportunity when asked a (very legitimate, given his chief advisor's Nazism) question about a rise in prejudice against Jews while standing next to the prime minister of Israel to start his answer by gloating about how much he won the election by.
By the time he actually got around to answering the question, it wasn't much better: it pretty much boiled down to "some of my best friends and family members are Jews." He didn't condemn the anti-Semitic acts, he didn't say they were bad, he didn't say they were awful, he didn't even really acknowledge that, he just said that he won because the country is divided (which is actually kinda sorta almost true) and he will make everybody friends.
Yeah. Good luck with that.
(Prime Minister Netanyahu didn't cover himself in glory, either. His method of stressing the importance of Israel being the Jews' homeland was to say that the Chinese are called that because they're from China, and Japanese are called that because they're from Japan, and Jews are called that because they're from Judea, and therefore that land is theirs. So nice to see that Middle East politics are being determined by an eighth-grade syllogism.....)
