As I mentioned a short while ago, who riffs about “gas chambers” in joking conversations or to illustrate some mundane aspect of the news of the day. There’s gallows humor, even about the Holocaust, even among Jews. But this just seemed weird.

Is this how the Trump family talks?

A former high level Trump Organization executive says she heard Trump himself “joke about gas chambers and ovens.”

The woman is Barbara Res and she worked for Trump for 18 years. But she’s also supporting Hillary and has been highly critical of Trump. So this is not a friendly witness. But it’s a very knowledgable witness.

The Forward reported Res’s comment and got a denial from the Trump campaign.
