A Washington, D.C. lawmaker blames Jewish bankers for the recent snow in the city in a video he published on Facebook on Friday, claiming that "the Rothschilds" are behind the inclement weather and it's a part of their plan to take over cities.

"Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man," D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8) said. "Y'all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation."

"And D.C. keep talking about, 'We a resilient city,'" White continued. "And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful."

The Washington Post notes that the "Rothschilds are a famous European business dynasty descended from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, an 18th-century Jewish banker who lived in what is today Frankfurt, Germany." The Rothschilds have routinely been the targets of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories claiming that they and other prominent members of the Jewish community leverage world events in order to gain more money and power.
