Ocasio-Cortez made the claim while linking to an Intercept article in which the author accused the president of antisemitism for calling the freshman lawmaker and her “squad” (who are not Jewish), Rep. Jerry Nadler, and Schiff “Do Nothing Democrat Savages.”
The article also claims that the nickname “shifty Schiff,” given to him by President Trump following his massive lies involving the Ukranian phone call “whistleblower,” is an antisemitic attack.
“Understand that Trump is engaged in deliberate, atrocious, targeted antisemitism towards Chairman Schiff. Then ask yourself why no one cares to denounce it – esp when his accusation of it towards others drove full news cycles earlier this year,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
“It’s wrong. It’s harmful. And his bigotry is reflective of the white supremacist base he relies on for political gain,” she continued.
