Mike Pompeo’s Sneak Attempt To Drag Biden Into The Mud Blows Up In His Face

Mike Pompeo

During a recent podcast on Israel, Iran and antisemitism, Ben Rhodes, former Deputy National Security Adviser under the Obama administration, criticized Israel’s right-wing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, calling him “corrupt and cruel” while leveling other criticisms of the conservative pro-Israel community.

Rhodes joined Peter Beinart, a fellow at the Foundation for Middle East Peace and editor-at-large of Jewish Currents, on his podcast, Occupied Thoughts, to discuss the controversial topic.

As expected, Rhodes was criticized by some Jewish Groups. But in a tweet, this Thursday, former CIA Director Mike Pompeo said that Rhodes’ “corrupt and cruel” comment was aimed at “all Jews.”

“Ben Rhodes told @J_Insider that @netanyahu — and all Jews — are ‘corrupt and cruel.’ While this view is taking root among some Democrats, does President Biden agree? I hope not,” Pompeo wrote.

Pompeo’s tweet sparked a huge wave of backlash, mostly from people accusing him of lying about what Rhodes said.

Rhodes himself slammed Pompeo, saying, “Outright and offensive lies and disinformation are at the center of the right wing authoritarian political project in this country today. They have to create an alternate world because they can’t win debates or elections in the real one.”
