Scaramucci Post Tweets About Jews And The Holocaust — Again

Just days after posting what many saw as an offensive tweet about the number of Jews who perished in the Holocaust, the Twitter account of Scaramucci Post is again tweeting about Jews and genocide.

“How many Jews were alive in 1939?” the Twitter account posted.

The Twitter feed is run by Lance Laifer, an assistant to Anthony Scaramucci. Before launching into a string of tweets about Jews and the Holocaust — linking to posts from the Anti-Defamation League — Laifer reminded followers that he was Jewish himself, posting a painting he had made of the Israeli flag. In another tweet he wrote, “I am not an anti-Semite. I am not a white supremacist. I am a Jew.”

According to CNN reporter Oliver Darcy, Scaramucci “is a participant” in this round of tweets. “I think we are trying to make a point,” Scaramucci’s agent reportedly said.
