Oh my G-D!
Perhaps I should say, “Oy vey!” Mark Levin, who, as I have sadly chronicled, has transformed himself from the most prominent media critic of Donald Trump (and of the GOP establishment, including its media flagship, Fox News) into the most embarrassingly eager shoeshine boy for Trump (and defender of the GOP status quo, and star host on its media flagship, Fox News), has now, it seems to me, reached the new nadir of sycophantic chutzpah.
As a special invitee to the White House “Hanukkah reception,” having been introduced by his leash-holding master (aka the GOP establishment’s court jester), Levin stood next to President Trump, alongside rabbis, and said:
It’s an honor to be here with the first Jewish President of the United States. And if he isn’t, he should be.
I want to thank you. I want to thank you for everything you have done for the Jewish people. I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for the Jewish people’s ancestral homeland. You are going to be remembered there for a thousand years. And I want to thank you for what you’ve done for the United States of America. And I want you to know that we will not leave our general on the battlefield without our support, period. God bless you.
I would say I’m speechless, but in truth this kind of self-obliterating groveling before America’s reality TV generalissimo (“our general,” as Levin puts it) is now such standard fare in the “conservative media” that I have to admit to being slightly surprised that Levin didn’t break into a Yiddish dance for his new god, who will be remembered by the Jewish people for a thousand years. Must be the heart condition holding him back.
