A critique of a freshman Democratic congresswoman over her ill-considered tweets that began with a Forward editor had made its way to the White House by Tuesday, when President Trump called for the congresswoman’s resignation during a Cabinet meeting.

In the segment, Tapper played clip after clip in which Trump employed Jewish stereotypes. Watch it here.
