*A Washington, D.C. Democratic lawmaker is apologizing after blaming notorious Jewish bankers for controlling the weather and orchestrating natural disasters.
Trayon White Sr. made the comments in a since-deleted video on his official Facebook page Friday morning as snow fell over the capital.
“Man it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” White can be heard saying in the video, the Washington Post reported.
“And D.C. keeps talking about, ‘We a resilient city,’” he continues. “And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”
As noted by The NY Post:
The Rothschilds are a wealthy business dynasty descended from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, an 18th-century Jewish banker who lived in Frankfurt, Germany.
Over the years, they’ve been the subject of wild anti-Semitic conspiracy theories accusing them and other Jewish people of secretly orchestrating world events to their advantage.
Vladimir Putin reportedly banned the Rothschild’s New World Order banking cartel from entering Russian territory “under any circumstances.”

“This kind of anti-Semitism is unacceptable in any public official. This so diminishes what America is about and adds to the oppressive feeling going on in the country right now,” Rabbi Daniel Zemel of Temple Micah in northwest Washington told the paper.
On Sunday night, White posted a note on Twitter apologizing “to the Jewish community and anyone I have offended.”
“The Jewish community have been allies with me in my journey to help people. I did not intend to be Anti-Semitic, and I see I should not have said that after learning from my colleagues,” the note reads.
White said he’d reached out to his “friends” at the organization Jews United for Justice.
“They are helping me to understand the history of comments made against Jews and I am committed to figuring out ways continue to be allies with them and others,” he wrote.
The organization acknowledged speaking with White, writing that they “look forward to working with him toward deeper understanding of anti-Semitism and toward our collective liberation.”
Anti-Semitic incidents have more than doubled in DC between 2015 and 2017, according to the Washington Post.
