Antisemitism accusations on the way?
Outsider presidential hopeful Andrew Yang's latest idea is both literally and figuratively his most unorthodox yet: He's taking a strong public stance against circumcision.

The Democratic candidate revealed in a little-noticed tweet last week that he was against the ritualized practice of cutting a newborn's foreskin. But in an interview with The Daily Beast, he said that if he were elected he would incorporate that view into public policy, mainly by pushing initiatives meant to inform parents that they don't need to have their infants circumcised for health reasons.
