Camerota continued to try and push the Rabbi, but he explained to her that every person has the ability to be evil or good and that he would welcome President Trump to his synagogue with open arms.
Monday morning, in one of his first appearances following the horrific, anti-Semitic attack on his synagogue, CNN's Alisyn Camerota tried to cajole Rabbi Jeffrey Myers into blaming President Donald Trump for the shooting.
Myers presides over the Tree of Life Synagogue, where a gunman opened fire Saturday, killing 11 and wounding at least 6 in what is being termed the worst anti-Semitic attack in American history, but he wasn't about to lay the blame for the gunman's hatred of the Jewish people at the feet of the President (or any political figure) -- no matter how hard Camerota tried.
Camerota asked Myers if he blamed anyone “beyond the gunman” for Saturday's attack. He responded that the fault lies with the shooter.
“I don’t really foist blame upon any person,” Myers said. “Hate does not know religion, race, creed, political party. It’s not a political issue in any way, shape, or form. Hate does not know any of those things.”
