Talking About Joe Biden’s Philo-Semitism
The Scroll’s Adam Chandler discusses Biden’s remarks on HuffPost Live
“This has been a blockbuster week for the love of Jews,” Adam Chandler wrote on this blog last week, and it looks like the excitement lasted straight through Memorial Day, centering on Joe Biden’s positive remarks last Tuesday about the influence Jewish Americans have had on the country.
Chandler joined New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait and Foreign Policy’s Isaac Stone Fish on HuffPost Live this morning to discuss what they all seem to agree is simply Biden being Biden:

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
