The press is surprised that a politician lies but not that the chair of the DNC thinks Israel is more important than America

So the Chair of the DNC,  Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was caught in a lie at the National Convention.

As per the Washington Examiner:

"Wasserman Schultz had quoted Israel’s ambassador to the US, Michael Oren, as saying “ that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”  Ambassador Oren released a statement yesterday evening categorically denying he’d said any such thing.  Wasserman Shultz claimed in an interview on Fox shortly afterward that some conservative newspaper had “deliberately” misquoted her, and that she had never said any such thing"

Unfortunately for Wasserman Schulz she was actually recorded making the statement she subsequently denied ever uttering:

So what.  Big deal.  Politician lies and then lies about lying. Democrat, Republican.  Both as bad as each other. It's a bit disheartening that in an age that even the most minor statement or action is recorded, videoed, and digitally captured they don't realize they are going to be caught out, but this is an affliction that politicians of all persuasions seem to suffer from.

So why write a post about a politician lying you say?  I might as well write a post about the sun coming up in the morning.  Well, what actually caught my attention about Wasserman Schultz's denial of ever saying what she actually said is what she said afterwards, which apparently nobody other than me found to be extraordinary.  She said:

"We have to make sure that in America we don't have people who put their love of party in front of their love of Israel".

See the Fox News interview below:

Let me get this straight.  The Chair of the DNC prioritizes Israel over America?

Once again I have no words
