Max Boot, CNN analyst and Washington Post columnist, claimed on Friday that when President Donald Trump blamed some of the anti-Kavanaugh protests on George Soros, he was really blaming his “problems on the Jews.”
Funny (actually not so funny) how authoritarians or would-be authoritarians always blame their problems on the Jews–and now in particular on George Soros who has replaced the Rothschilds as the symbol of Jewish finance. https://t.co/Gd21lYnOSz

Boot tweeted, “Funny (actually not so funny) how authoritarians or would-be authoritarians always blame their problems on the Jews–and now in particular on George Soros who has replaced the Rothschilds as the symbol of Jewish finance.”
His tweet was a response to an early morning tweet from President Donald Trump, which claimed that Soros (and others) were responsible for financing a number of the protesters who have ambushed senators on elevators and in the halls of the Senate office building.
The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers

And in at least one case, the president is correct in tracing the money back to Soros. One of the women who ambushed Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator last week came from the Center for Popular Democracy, an organization that is funded in part by the billionaire.
Trump is referencing how one of the women who confronted Jeff Flake came from the Center for Popular Democracy, which receives funding from George Soros. More here: https://t.co/oSdZ6kThNf https://t.co/Ibbrv4BuDh

The Daily Caller News Foundation also reported that Soros-backed activists were handing out cash to protesters who were arrested protesting Kavanaugh. (RELATED: Soros-Backed Activists Slip Cash To Anti-Kavanaugh Protesters Before Arrests)
