White House spokesman claimed that the inclusion of Gertrude Stein in the proclamation was a mistake.





White House spokesman claimed that the inclusion of Gertrude Stein in the proclamation was a mistake.(Algemeiner).In an email to the Algemeiner, Matt Lehrich, a White House spokesman claimed that the inclusion of Gertrude Stein in the proclamation was a mistake. He wrote, “A version of this proclamation was sent out in error. The corrected final version has now been issued.” The new release, dated May 2nd, omits the reference to Stein and the other Jewish Americans originally mentioned. The corrected paragraph reads, “Their history of unbroken perseverance and their belief in tomorrow’s promise offers a lesson not only to Jewish Americans, but to all Americans. Generations of Jewish Americans have brought to bear some of our country’s greatest achievements and forever enriched our national life.” Hmmmm....Not only Gertrude Stein is removed, also Aaron Copland,Albert Einstein and Justice Louis Brandeis had to go.Read the full story here.
