You know who else was born in the Soviet Union? RWNJ Boris Epshteyn.


Boris Epshteyn

Boris Alexandrovich Epshteyn (Russian: Бори́с Алекса́ндрович Эпштейн; born August 14, 1982) is a Russian-born American Republican political strategist, investment banker, and attorney. He is currently the Chief Political Analyst at Sinclair Broadcast Group. He was a senior advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 campaign for President of the United States, and previously worked on the McCain-Palin campaign. Following Trump's election, he was named director of communications for the Presidential Inaugural Committee,[1] and then assistant communications director for surrogate operations in the administration, until he resigned in March 2017.

Epshteyn was born in 1982 in Moscow, Soviet Union, the son of Anna Shulkina and Aleksandr Epshteyn. His family is Russian Jewish.[2] In 1993, he immigrated as a refugee with his family to Plainsboro Township, New Jersey under the Lautenberg amendment of 1990.[3]



In September 2016, the media watchdog organization Media Matters for America criticized CNN, Fox News, and PBS for failing to disclose Epshteyn's "financial ties to the former Soviet Union, which include consulting through Strategy International LLC for 'entities doing business in Eastern Europe' and moderating a Russian-sponsored conference on 'investment opportunities in Moscow.'"[11]

1. Use of the term "Jewish" in describing anyone is a dog whistle to haters UNLESS all persons

are described using the same criteria. example: Russian Christian...Russian Buddhist...Russian Agnostic. ad infinitum.

3. I suppose it would have to be from somewhere. I'm not familiar with the manner in which Wiki

describes various ethnic Russians but as the example is used it's still a dog whistle for hate.
