The new Nixon tapes deepen our knowledge of the late President’s “complex” relationship with the Jews. Now Nixon’s “House Jew,” Leonard Garment, has spoken out on his ex boss’s thoughtful utterances.
Garment writes the New York Times that Nixon wasn’t so much anti-Semitic as abrupt. “Let him be the house Jew” is a “characteristic piece of cynical Nixonian shorthand.”
Almost Churchillian in it’s brisk brusqueness!
