Is Sheldon Adelson being pulled like a wishbone today?
The lede story in his Monday newspaper is about the importance of the Supreme Court nominees that either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump might name and the lasting effect that would have on U.S. law, regulations and politics.
The story follows on the heels of Sunday’s endorsement of Trump by the Sheldon Adelson Review-Journal. That editorial leaned heavily on the importance of those Supreme Court nominees. The issue is probably the best — and perhaps only — legitimate argument in favor of voting for Trump.
The element that might be causing Adelson to be pulling out what hair he has left is that the article was penned by a writer for Al Jazeera, the unquestionably pro-Arab wire service.
Al Jazeera has published less than flattering opinion and news pieces about Adelson with headlines such as: “The GOP’s bigoted kingmaker,” “Who is Sheldon Adelson and can he sway the US election?” and “Maccabee Task Force denies funding anti-BDS posters.”
But when it comes to getting the pro-Trump message out, even the devil can quote scripture.
