As Professor Jacobson noted, the elite media used the desecration of a Jewish cemetery in Missouri as another opportunity to attack President Trump.

However, media drama won’t restore the 154 toppled and damaged headstones. So, in an inspiring move, Vice President Mike Pence joined the clean-up efforts.
