Last month, Washington D.C. council member Trayon White caused a stir when he posted a theory on social media that the Jews control the weather.

“Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” he says. “And D.C. keep talking about, ‘We a resilient city.’ And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”

The film, which was shot while he was driving around Washington as snow began to fall, made national headlines.  At first, he refused to apologize, but eventually did.  And then he filmed a 38 minute response saying that he had apologized and was “done with that.”  (See the video below.)

White, calling this mistake a “learning experience,” decided to go to the Holocaust Museum to learn more about the Jewish people.  It went about as well as you might think. HotAir explains:

The photo, taken in 1935, depicts a woman in a dark dress shuffling down a street in Norden, Germany. A large sign hangs from her neck: “I am a German girl and allowed myself to be defiled by a Jew.” She is surrounded by Nazi stormtroopers.

D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8) studied the image. “Are they protecting her?”

Lynn Williams, an expert on educational programs at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and White’s tour guide for the day, stared at the photo.

“No,” she said. “They’re marching her through.”

“Marching through is protecting,” White said.

“I think they’re humiliating her,” Williams replied.

Then, people noted that he was more interested in the weapons used to kill the Jews than the Jews themselves:

The group paused before grainy photos of German troops executing Catholic clergy in Poland by firing squad. “Were they actually manufacturing these weapons?” White asked.

Moments later, White was nowhere to be seen.

One of his aides asked if the “Warsaw Ghetto,” was sort of like a “gated community.” Then, White disappeared, apparently pretending he got a call and leaving the museum.  Later, he said it was “awesome.”  Awesome?  Really?  A museum dedicated to preserving the memory of a genocide?  Anyway, I honestly don’t know what to say about Mr. White, except that we’ll probably see more and more of him.  Knowing D.C. and their standards, he’ll probably be re-elected.
