Israeli Consul General Anat Sultan-Dadon is demanding that CNN apologize after anchor Christiane Amanpour compared the Trump administration to the Nazi Holocaust.
Sultan-Dadon reportedly sent a letter to CNN that said that Amanpour’s Nov 12 comments disrespected the millions murdered by the Nazis during the Holocaust, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Indeed, Amanpour’s comments were absolutely disgusting.
“This week 82 years ago, Kristallnacht happened,” Amanpour said on Nov. 12 during her show. “It was the Nazis’ warning shot across the bow of our human civilization that led to genocide against a whole identity and, in that tower of burning books, it led to an attack on fact, knowledge, history and proof.”
“After four years of a modern-day assault on those same values by Donald Trump, the Biden/Harris team pledges a return to norms, including the truth,” she added. “And every day [President-elect] Joe Biden makes presidential announcements about good governance and the health and security of the American people, while the great, brooding figure of his defeated opponent rages, conducting purges of perceived enemies and preventing a transition.”
While Christiane Amanpour enjoys her elite London life and casually throws around Nazi analogies to Donald Trump and his administration, more Jews, Hispanics, Black Americans, LGBT Americans voted for Trump in 2020 than 2016 and for a GOP candidate for president for decades.

Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Minister Omer Yankelevitch also slammed CNN for Amanpour’s disgusting lunacy.
“Using the memory of the Holocaust for cheap headlines or a political agenda is concerning and distorts the historical and moral truth,” Yankelevitch said.
Finally, former Israeli consul-general in New York Danny Dayan also excoriated Amanpiur and CNN, saying, “the foolish comparison Amanpour made between Kristallnacht and Trump must bring about her immediate dismissal from CNN. There is no immunity for Holocaust deniers.”
Christiane Amanpour is an pro-Iranian, anti-American activist who has never been a journalist, but has, instead, always been a left-wing activist.
