Jewish Twitter tried to pray for Trump, but Stephen Miller’s diagnosis generates only jokes

While a debate broke out among liberal Jews on Twitter, as to whether they should pray for the president of the United States after his positive COVID-19 diagnosis, nobody in those circles seems to have any such qualms about his senior aide, Stephen Miller.

Widely known as the architect of the Trump administration’s anti-immigration policies, the news of his positive diagnosis strikes them as his just desserts for a policy that designed to separate families and put thousands in detention centers.

Others had only jokes.

Though some where concerned that certain jokes approached antisemitic tropes.
