All 100

In a rare show of unity, all one hundred U.S. senators signed off on a letter to Trump urging the administration to take action against the growing number of anti-Semitic threats around the country.

“We write to underscore the need for swift action,” the letter reads. “We thank you for your recent efforts and ask that you inform us of the actions that your Departments plan to take to address threats against these and other religious institutions.”

Jewish community centers in at least five states and multiple offices of the Anti-Defamation League reported bomb threats on Tuesday in what was at least the fourth wave of threats made against Jewish organizations since January, echoing similar waves of threats on Jan. 9, Jan. 18 and Feb. 27.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday denounced those threats “in the strongest terms.”

“It’s incredibly saddening that I have to continue to share these disturbing reports with you, and I share the President’s thoughts that he fervently hopes that we don’t continue to have to share these reports with you,” Spicer said during his daily press briefing. “But as long as they do continue we will continue to condemn them and look at ways in which we can stop them.”

Well, getting rid of Steve Bannon might be a good start.
