Musician, author, and actor Carrie Brownstein is the creator, writer, and co-star of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning television show Portlandia. And Brownstein had a few words to say in response to Roy Moore's wife, Kayla Moore, who recently blamed “fake news” organizations such as CNN for the claims of bigotry against her husband. Moore cited associates and friends as proof that she and her husband are not racist bigots.
“Well, one of our attorneys is a Jew,” Kayla Moore said. “We have very close friends who are Jewish and rabbis.”
Well, Carrie had something to say about that.

By early morning Tuesday, Google’s algorithms were on the case: A Google search using only the words “our attorney” automatically produced the phrase "is Jewish."

The satire was strong with the people of Twitter.
They were not having it with Moore's remarks, and they showed it.

So what about Moore's other attorneys?

There is also the question of whether or not Moore is speaking the truth.
If her husband gets to question President Barack Obama's birth certificate, it's only fair to expect the same from her regarding her alleged Jewish lawyer. We demand a bar mitzvah certificate!
