State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has once again brought out the worst in Donald Trump supporters.

Schneiderman, a Democrat, has been the target of a flurry of anti-Semitic social media attacks since it was revealed that his office is investigating the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

“More like JEW York Attorney General,” read one tweet from @joseph12xu.

Another tweet from @thenextgeddylee called Schneiderman “just another lying kike grasping at straws.”

The attacks are similar to those that have been directed at Schneiderman over his $40 million lawsuit against Trump University.

“As the attorney general has said, it is deeply disappointing that Donald Trump has opened the door to this type of bigoted rhetoric,” Schneiderman spokesman Eric Soufer said.
