The term "Renegade Jew" trended on Twitter on Sunday night after a Breitbart article used the phrase to describe conservative commentator William Kristol.
"Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew Prepares Third Party Effort to block Trump’s Path to White House," read the headline of the article by Jewish writer David Horowitz.
The article was about efforts by Kristol, editor of the conservative Weekly Standard, to back a third-party bid for the White House over presumed Republican nominee Donald Trump, and did not directly address Kristol's faith.
A discussion about the Iran nuclear deal, however, was included at the end:
Trump has promised to abandon the Iran deal, while Hillary Clinton and all but a handful of Democrats have supported this treachery from start to finish. Kristol is now one of their allies.
While the term "renegade Jew" is used only in the headline and not in the story, there were more than 1,500 tweets using the phrase on Sunday night.
