Ivanka Calls Judaism One Of ‘Three Largest World Religions’ — Wrong!

Ivanka Trump’s humblebrag backfired on Monday morning when she incorrectly said that Judaism was one of the world’s three largest religions.

Trump gracefully sidestepped a possibly-insensitive question from “Fox & Friends” co-host Gretchen Carlson on what it was like “as a convert to be there in Israel and to meet with [Prime Minister] Netanyahu” while accompanying President Trump on his global tour to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Vatican City last month.

“To have covered the three largest world religions over the course of four days—it was deeply meaningful,” Trump responded.

Jews make up less than 0.2% of the world’s population, coming in far behind Hindus, Buddhists, Spiritists, Chinese (or Han) religionists and Sikhs.

According to a 2012 Pew Center report, Judaism is in the top three (actually, number one) of all major world religions in one thing: the oldest median age of its adherents, at 36.
