Response to muriel_volestrangler (Reply #35)

62. There were weeks of backstory.

Debates as to whether it was proper to let the two in given their BDS support and acts of anti-Semitism. It may not have been obvious to everybody in the US, but there was pressure to grant them a waiver under Israeli law to let them in for the official visit.

The debate sloshed over into the US, which is where Trump probably picked up on it.

About the same time, though, that Israel decided not to grant the waiver (they were already banned by the simple, clear wording of the Israeli law), it became clear that the official trip included no actual Israeli officials.

After that, you have to watch clearly not only the dates but also the time-stamps on any new bit of information, as well as clearly compare signatures and the normal referential meanings of words to have any clue at separating out the fog of disinformation from any semblance of what actually happened and who said what to whom when and why.
