Headstones At Jewish Cemetery 'Fell Over From Poor Maintenance,' 'Had Been Toppled For Years'

It turns out poor maintenance, not "Trump's failure to condemn antisemitism," is to blame for the toppling of a host of headstones at a Jewish cemetery in Brooklyn, New York.

From The Daily Mail:
A number of tombstones found overturned in an historic Jewish cemetery in New York fell over due to environmental causes and poor maintenance, not vandalism, police said.

Officers were called to the Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn on Saturday evening to investigate the damaged graves, but police determined that the damage was due to soil erosion and natural weathering, not vandalism, according to CNN.

Some of the headstones seen toppled in a Sunday morning tour of the grave yard conducted by New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind had actually been toppled over for years, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Here's some Dov Hikind tweets about the incident:

While the media used these stories to demonize Trump as an "anti-Semite," so far we've learned one man behind the bomb threats was a black guy who hated Trump with a passion and the toppling of these headstones was the result of piss-poor maintenance and they'd been toppled "for years" without anyone even noticing.

Perhaps it's not the wisest decision to hysterically blame Trump for everything that goes wrong in the world.
