And here we thought Barack Obama was “the most Jewish president the United States has ever had”! Guess the joke’s on us, guys:
Official: Obama White House Pushed Delay of Anti-Israel U.N. Resolution to Provide Cover for Clinton https://t.co/IZha18zLxe

More from the Washington Free Beacon:
A former Obama administration official said the administration orchestrated the delaying of a controversial anti-Israel United Nations resolution until after the 2016 presidential election, knowing it would pass when the United States abstained.
The official’s claim contradicts on-the-record denials by Obama administration officials, who attacked critics at the time who suggested they were involved in its drafting.
Speaking anonymously to the New York Times, the official said the White House feared putting pressure on Hillary Clinton to either condemn or defend the resolution against Israeli settlements and potentially upset Jewish donors during her election fight against Donald Trump. The U.S. decision to abstain on U.N. Security Council resolution 2334 was widely viewed as a parting shot by Obama at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Well, this would certainly put Barack Obama’s fondness for Rashida Tlaib in a more interesting light.
.@BarackObama met with us new members of Congress and we had a thoughtful discussion about serving our country. The best part was when he looked straight at me and said, "I'm proud of you." pic.twitter.com/cPDOth0B5i

So that's why the dude is proud of Rashida Tlaib

I'm beginning to suspect Team Obama was deeply hostile to Israel & lied about it. https://t.co/qEbnQTwiVj

There are a lot of things Obama did casually and under the radar.

Both the hostility to Israel and the manipulative dishonesty are part of what 'being on the right side of history' means to them.
