A Washington, D.C., lawmaker was forced to respond to criticism after a video surfaced of him saying that Jewish financiers control the weather.
D.C. Councilmember Trayon White Sr. posted the video early last Friday, after snow flurries began. In the video, White, a Democrat, discussed the Rothschilds, a famous European business dynasty descended from an 18th-Century Jewish banker.
“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.”
He has since apologized for the video and to the Jewish community as a whole, saying he did not “mean to be anti-semitic.”
