“Ocasio-Cortez Slams Politico for ‘Money Trees Next to the Only Jewish Candidate for President’
Politico Magazine under fire over the weekend for the images associated with a profile of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders
Politico Magazine came under fire over the weekend for the images used for its profile of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Senior Sanders campaign adviser David Sirota and Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed the magazine for perpetuating anti-Semitic stereotypes.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, ‘Can @politico explain to us how photoshopping money trees next to the only Jewish candidate for president and talking about how ‘cheap’ and rich he is *isn’t* antisemitic? Or are they just letting this happen because he’s a progressive politician they don’t like?’
Sirota, meanwhile, wrote, ‘So, @Politico deleted its wildly anti-semitic tweet, but it’s important for everyone to not forget this episode. At a moment when we have a president who called Nazis ‘very fine people,’ this newspaper promoted the ‘cheap Jew’ trope against that president’s opponent. Disgusting.’ “
