Trump lauds anti-Semite Henry Ford’s ’good bloodlines’

President Trump had words of praise for the Ford Motor Company’s founder Henry Ford during a visit to the automaker’s Michigan plants. Trump said, ’The company founded by a man named Henry Ford — good bloodlines, good bloodlines’, while addressing William Clay Ford, the company’s executive chairman. Commenters online were quick to point out Ford’s notorious legacy of anti-Semitism.

Look, I don't think the president is likely an anti Semite, but I do think he is an uneducated idiot who can't stop running his mouth on things he doesn't comprehend. Why the he'll would he even mention Ford's bloodlines? 😐

1st) You should judge a man by his actions more than his words. Words are more important for someone like Trump because his words can insight riots or calm. But, the principle is all the more important because we hear his and other's words through this lens of reporting. 2nd) Its clear he was praising him for being in Henry Ford's lineage because he was Henry Ford. The comment doesnt call into question anti-Semitism (as far as I can tell) unless you are looking for it.

It is definitely a weird compliment, but we shouldn't pin Ford's anti-Semitism on Trump because of it. Complimenting someone doesn't make you complicit in their faults

So is this one of those guilt by association cases? Or am I just not getting the point?

He was talking about the Ford dynasty, addressing William Clay Ford. Linking Henry's antisemitism here is a symptom of the TDS in the media. Curiously, during the 1930s it was the MSM (especially The Dearborn Independent) that published vile antisemitic canards. But yeah, let's blame Trump for that.

I guess it takes a anti semite to love a anti semite.
