(Jerusalem, Israel — May 23, 2017) – All eyes were on Donald Trump (R-NY) today as the world expected him to do or say something inappropriate when visiting Israel’s main Holocaust memorial.

He didn’t disappoint.

Chancellor Squirrelhead is in the middle of his first overseas trip, and Yad Vashem Non-FLATLINE Resource, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, was one of the main stops on his itinerary.

Chancellor Squirrelhead signed the guestbook with words that demonstrate his cluelessness about the Jewish people’s suffering during the Holocaust

“It is a great honor to be here with all of my friends – so amazing and will never forget!”

Chancellor Squirrelhead’s Yad Vashem Note

“No sane person thinks it’s an ‘honor’ to pay respects to 6,000,000 slaughtered Jews,” said a Yad Vashem spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Likewise, it’s not an ‘amazing’ experience.

“But, just like the Holocaust, the world will “never forget” Chancellor Squirrelhead’s cold and callous attitude towards Yad Vashem – or the Jews.”

“This is the same anti-Semite who forgot to mention the Jews when issuing a statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day,” said a spokesman for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Despite claiming to be “the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life,” Chancellor Squirrelhead is the same anti-Semite who reprimanded Jake Turx, an Orthodox Jewish reporter from Brooklyn-based Ami Magazine, during a press conference on February 16.

And that was one day after a press conference with Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu, during which a reporter asked him about the uptick in anti-Semitic attacks and incidents in the United States, to which Chancellor Squirrelhead responded:

“Well, I just want to say that we are, you know, very honored by the victory that we had 306 Electoral College votes. We were not supposed to crack 220. You know that, right? There was no way you know that, right? There was no way to 221, but then they said there’s no way to 270 and there’s tremendous enthusiasm out there.”

There were unconfirmed reports that Chancellor Squirrelhead’s Anti-Semite-in-Chief Stephen Bannon was seen goose-stepping around Yad Vashem during the visit.

“Others said they saw Bannon heading for Dachau,” said a Yad Vashem spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity. “They figured he was going there to collect a souvenir – maybe the front gate? I wouldn’t put it past him.”

The iron gate from Nazi Germany’s Dachau concentration camp – emblazoned with the slogan “Arbeit Macht Frei” (Work Will Set You Free) – was stolen on November 2, 2014. The perpetrators were never caught, but the search for the missing piece of history never ended. Thanks to a tip, the gate was located in Norway in late 2016 and arrived at Dachau on February 22.

Many are comparing Chancellor Squirrelhead’s inappropriate words with those of Breanna Mitchell Twitter the Alabama teen who took a smiling selfie while visiting the Auschwitz concentration camp. She posted the photo to her Twitter account on June 20, 2014, with “Selfie in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp” – complete with a red-cheeked smiley-face emoticon – as the caption. One month later, when the photo went viral, she didn’t apologize or acknowledge her faux pas; she acknowledged her infamy:

“I’m famous y’all!”

Mitchell isn’t alone. On April 12, 2013, Justin Bieber visited Amsterdam’s Anne Frank House and wrote somewhat familiar words in their guestbook:

“Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.”

“You would think a 70-year-old would be smarter than a teenager,” said a political scientist, speaking on condition of anonymity. “This latest episode demonstrates the level of immaturity at work here.”
