    Really stupid how he is so busy embracing secular jews, get over it they do NOT represent us and we are different and we are proud of it.

    Looks like he's really afraid of identifying as who he is (a real liberal).

    Also I don't know why the rabbi thinks that the only reason orthedox jews support Trump  is because of Israel, simply NOT true we support Trump for his commitment to the ORTHODOX Jewish community

    Is it good for the Jews?

    at the end of the discussion the host said that we should think 10 Years in the future when we are in the voting booth  . 
    I like that idea !

    and that's why I voted for Biden - and I do wear a kippa and almost all my neighbors and friends are short sighted and voting for Trump . if he remains in office another 4 years and heaven forbid  his family members for another 8 years ( which is surely in his possible goal ) there will be nothing left of the American project or our democracy and it will not be good for the Jews .

    Torah....

    Why dont the rabbi mention the very fundamental issues, 

    1 trump is the only pres is recent years to embrace god's name  

    2 trump realy values prayers, rabbis and jewish values

    3 trump keeps life values, its parshat Noah, and we know God destroyed the world because of that sins, and they were not Jews

    I'm very disappointed that you did not call him out on his insulting words about Dovid Hamelech. According to Chazal, one who insults Talmiday Chachamim has no portion in the world to come.
    His weak disclaimer to that insult was not nearly enough.

        Rabbi YY please explain why you didn't come to the defense of Dovid Hamelech (Malka Mishicha) the host was extremely ignorant. He understands Tnach like a Tzedoke understands Torah.

    liberals and the left are in a open war against religion and god

    liberals and the left are in a open war against religion and god, why wouldn't we openly declare who we observant god fearing jews stand with? its not about the person or personality of one or the other
