Trump’s Trolls Ambush ‘Jew York Attorney General’ Eric Schneiderman Over Probe

State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is bering trolled by anti-Semitic Donald Trump supporters — again.

Schneiderman, a Democrat, has found himself on the receiving end of anti-Semitic social media attacks following the announcement that his office is now investigating the Donald J. Trump Foundation, the New York Daily News reported.

Another played the witty punster.

Schneiderman also brought a $40 million lawsuit against Trump University this summer — calling the school a “fraud from beginning to end” — which prompted similar targeted remarks online.

In July, Schneiderman told the Forward that he saw Trump as “dangerous, offensive and grossly uninformed” and someone who has given “explicit endorsement to anti-Semitic imagery.”

“As a Democrat and a Jewish American, I feel that I have a duty to help prevent such a dangerous, offensive, and grossly uninformed individual from occupying the Oval Office,” Schneiderman previously told the Forward.

Schneiderman’s office did not respond to a request for comment but spokesman Eric Soufer told the Daily News that it was “deeply disappointing that Donald Trump has opened the door to this type of bigoted rhetoric.”
