From the Daily Beast:
“I don’t understand Jared Kushner at all. What is he doing? He’s turning his back on his religion and his heritage just so he can make money? I don’t get it. I just can’t wrap my mind around it,” Reiner, who is Jewish, tells the Daily Beast.
“The whole time while all those anti-Semitic memes were being passed on throughout the campaign, [Trump] certainly must have known, and his sons Eric and Don Jr. must have known they were retweeting things from anti-Semitic websites,” he adds. “Even if you want to cut them all the slack in the world, they have never to this day said, ‘This is absolutely unacceptable and abhorrent that we are being supported by these groups of people.’ They’ve never said it! So they’re completely comfortable with the idea that anti-Semitic and racist groups are supporting them.”Actually, Reiner is not Jewish.
He doesn't believe in organized religion.
Four years ago, while promoting the film The Magic Of Belle Isle, Reiner did an interview with Huffington Post.
From that interview:
QUESTION: So what’s on your personal bucket list?
REINER: I’ve pretty much done what I wanted to do. I know who I am now. I have a great marriage. I’ve got three great kids. There are traveling places that I haven’t been to that I’d like to go to, but I believe that wherever you go, there you are. If you’re happy with yourself, it doesn’t really matter where you go.
QUESTION: That sounds a bit Buddhist of you. You’re Jewish, but you once mentioned to Bill Maher that you have no religious affiliation.
REINER: Yes. It’s interesting that you should mention the Buddhist thing, because it’s the one religion that kind of makes sense to me. I don’t believe in organized religion, but I do believe in a lot of the concepts of Buddhism. I’m not a practicing anything, but those things make sense because it’s all about how you find spirituality inside you and how you treat others. It’s all about finding meaning. That’s what life is all about.Reiner, an ethnic Jew who abandoned his religion, is now lecturing a devout Jew who is raising his children Jewish on Judaism.
What next? Reiner lectures Milo Yiannopoulos on being gay? Omarosa on being black? Kellyanne Conway on being a woman?
