Politico publishes puff piece about 'the most prominent Jew in American politics'

When you read “the most prominent Jew in American politics” in the headline, we guarantee you weren’t picturing second gentleman Doug Emhoff. The only thing we can recall Emhoff doing was acting as part of the B-team, along with first lady Dr. Jill Biden, who visited Waukesha a full month after the Christmas parade massacre.

Politico seems to think that Emhoff is emerging as the face of President Joe Biden’s fight against antisemitism. “Emerging” is doing a lot of work there. If you stopped people on the street and asked them who Doug Emhoff is, how many do you think would know?

Eugene Daniels and Sam Stein write unconvincingly:

Emhoff is not terribly religious — and admits as much. He grew up in Old Bridge, N.J., a community with a fair number of Jews. He attended a temple there and was bar mitzvahed. But he was largely secular, exhibiting the type of faith common among his generation: spiritually connected but observant mainly on the high holidays.

That changed when his wife, Kamala Harris, assumed the vice presidency. Emhoff was not just the first male to occupy his role, he was the first Jew among the four White House principals (the president, vice president, and their respective spouses). He explained to POLITICO last year that he became infused by a sense of purpose and, to a degree, burden.

“It’s really impacted him. He has always lived openly and proudly as a Jew,” said Liza Acevedo, Emhoff’s communications director. “Everything that he is saying publicly on this issue is what he’s saying behind the scenes. He has been outspoken on combating antisemitism and he’s turning his pain into action.”

“Burden.”
