Siggy Flicker’s Relationship With Donald Trump Explained

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Siggy Flicker has long supported Donald Trump, saying she wrote a social media post that he used to criticize Jewish people.

The former US president attacked “liberal Jews” on Sunday in a message published on his Truth Social website, on the occasion of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year and the start of major religious holidays.

Trump had shared an image of a flyer listing his accomplishments for the Jewish people in the United States and Israel. In his message, Trump added a caption in which he accused “liberal Jews” of ruining the country, “because you believed false narratives.”

Flicker then took to her own social media accounts to confirm that she was the author of the original flyer, but their friendship didn’t start there.

“Yes, I wrote it all down. Very proudly, loud and clear!” she wrote on social media.

The dating coach turned reality TV star often shares photos of herself posing with Trump at parties, on his golf courses, at campaign events and even from his private jet.

Flicker was born in Israel to a Holocaust survivor and is a spokesperson for #Jexit, which is the acronym for Jews Exiting the Democratic Party. The organization’s mission claims to “help educate and encourage Jews to understand and be fully aware that the Democratic Party has abandoned them and Israel.”

In his role, Flicker supports organizations fighting the rise of anti-Semitism around the world, “as well as the survival of Israel and condemning anti-Zionism,” according to the #Jexit website.

Flicker said, “Thank you President Trump for truly caring about America,” in an Instagram post in July.

She added: “Thank you for allowing us to experience a president who was not a lifelong politician, but a lifelong American.”

News week contacted Flicker by email for comment.

But her support for the former Republican favorite earned her numerous criticisms and she even had to deny having witnessed the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol.

In early January 2021, some social media users claimed to have spotted her during the riots, claiming to have seen her in an Instagram video. But although she described the Capitol rioters as “patriots” on Instagram, she swore she wasn’t there herself.

“I’m getting false alerts again,” the ex-Bravo star said in a video shared to his Instagram and X, formerly Twitter, accounts on January 13, 2021. “Don’t believe all the bullshit, what there… I’ve been in Florida since December 3.”

Flicker joined the cast of the Bravo reality series for its seventh season in 2016, but left the show after its second series, saying she wanted to focus on her business and family.

During her time on the show, Flicker clashed with co-star Margaret Josephs where she accused the latter of being anti-Semitic after she made a controversial comment about Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

They had clashed over Flicker’s decision to participate in the Posche fashion show because the “housewives” believed the boutique owner had spread rumors about fellow student Teresa Giudice’s marriage.

Flicker defended her actions, saying she wasn’t judging the brand for its actions, then Josephs commented, “But Siggy, Hitler wouldn’t have killed me. Does that make him a good person? ” said Joseph.

Flicker said later in the episode that she was very hurt by Josephs’ comments.

“The first time Margaret referenced Hitler, I was so shocked I couldn’t speak,” Flicker said.

“Margaret will always go below the belt to hurt me. The fact that she says Hitler’s name when she knows I’m a super Jew? My father is a Holocaust survivor. What Kind of person has Hitler on their mind? I want to call Margaret pointed out how insensitive it was to reference Hitler when we were talking about a fashion show.”

Josephs eventually apologized to Flicker, who appeared to accept the apology.

“Last night you gave me a sincere and sincere apology and I thank you for that,” she said in a later episode.

“I needed time to figure this out. I’m still upset. I don’t think anyone should ever reference Hitler. I said it in the heat of the moment, but I don’t think you’re anti-Semitic . I don’t. I don’t believe Margaret is anti-Semitic, I believe Margaret is anti-Siggy.”
