White House Intern Says He’s Not a White Supremacist He’s Jewish
A White House intern accused of making a white power hand sign during a group photo said he was simply mirroring President Trump’s use of the “OK” sign.
Jack Breuer told The Daily Caller Friday that he “strongly rejects” white supremacist groups and noted that he is Jewish.
“In some of our intern pictures, I emulated the OK sign the President sometimes makes. That was foolish. I should have listened more closely to the Commander-in-Chief and given the thumbs up,” Breuer said in his statement.
“I’m proud of my Jewish heritage and strongly reject the hateful views associated with racist white power organizations. I would never make common cause with them,” he added
On Thursday, The Daily Mail reported that Breuer, a recent college graduate who interned at the White House this fall, flashed the what looked like an “OK” hand gesture in a photo with the rest of the White House interns and the president himself.
The use of the “OK’ symbol was adopted by far-right groups in recent month because apparently it resembles a “w” and “p” for “white power.”
The story caused a stir on social media with some calling on Breuer’s employer to fire him.
