New AIPAC leader castigates crowd for cheering Trump’s anti-Obama remarks

At AIPAC, new president Lillian Pinkus bashes the crowd for cheering snide remarks against US President Barack Obama made by GOP candidate Donald Trump a night earlier.

“We are disappointed that so many people applauded a sentiment that we neither agree with nor condone,” she says. “Let us close this conference with the recognition that when we say come together we still have a lot to learn from each other.”

Trump drew loud applause from the self-proclaimed nonpartisan group after calling Obama possibly the worst president for Israel and saying “he’s leaving … yay.”
