Presidential candidates paraded Thursday morning at event put on by the Republican Jewish Coalition. And out of all the contenders, perhaps Donald Trump did the most thorough job of praising Jews — for making money.

And the best part: At the end of his appearance, The Donald still got a standing ovation.

Check at roughly the 3:30 mark, where Trump declared, “I’m a negotiator, like you folks.”

And at 14:00: “Is there anyone that doesn’t renegotiate deals in this room? This room — perhaps more than any room I’ve ever spoken to.”

Not to mention that throughout, Trump kept saying his usual refrain for big GOP events — that the attendees just want to buy influence with their money, while he just honestly wants their votes. His single best round of this happens at right after 17:10.

But hey, at least those lines all got some laughs.

According to the affidavit filed in support of a criminal complaint, Thomas Patrick Connally, Jr. committed two violations-- threatening a federal official and sending interstate communication containing a threat to harm, both of which are felonies.
