Failing to confront Trump's bigotry is moral stain on American Jews - Peter Beinart - The Forward 12.01.17

Neither Rabbi Marvin Hier, nor any rabbi, should bless Donald Trump at his inauguration

It is not an honour for Rabbi Hier or for Judaism to be associated with Donald Trump's campaign rhetoric or his inauguration. It is a disgrace.

– Amir Tibon – Haaretz 16.01.17
Rep. Steve Cohen and Rep. Jerry Nadler cite 'un-presidential remarks' and Trump's 'continued failure to address his conflicts of interest' as reasons for not attending. They join 40 other Democrats so far in an extraordinary act of protest.

– Sasha Abramsky – Haaretz 15.01.17
Trumpism doesn't represent an ideological shift in US policy and government. It's a vast tilt toward irrationality, a hyper-power in the grip of a political nervous breakdown.
