Times Reporter Calls Forward Profile ‘Greatest Thing That Has Ever Happened To Me’

One half of The New York Times’ top Trump reporting duo praised The Forward’s coverage of their friendship, which began when they discovered that the other was Jewish.

Times reporter Glenn Thrush tweeted that the article “is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me and” colleague Maggie Haberman.

The two met when they were reporters at rival newspapers covering New York City politics. They refused to speak to each other until Haberman overheard Thrush mentioning that he was Jewish.

“Since when are you Jewish?” Haberman asked.

“Since they cut my foreskin off when I was a baby,” Thrush responded.

True to form, the duo, who most recently collaborated on a joint profile of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump on Saturday, continued bantering about the article on Twitter.
