Issac Saul, an editor at the publication A Plus, saw a man who appeared to be Schlossberg last year at a protest, standing with people carrying pro-Donald Trump signs. The rally was held to oppose a speech by the Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour and to support far-right counter-speakers, who included Islamophobic activist Pamela Geller and commentator Milo Yiannopoulos, best known for appearing to condone pedophilia and coining phrases like "feminism is cancer."

At the rally, the man who appeared to be Schlossberg shouted at members of Neturei Karta — a fringe group of extremist Jews who are defined by their commitment to anti-Zionism based on a reading of scripture that forbids the presence of Jews in the land of Israel until the coming of the messiah.

"You are not a Jew," Schlossberg said to the Neturei Karta members. "He's pretending to be Jewish and he's making everybody else feel like that's what Jews think."

After King and other left-leaning activists identified the man as Schlossberg, his law firm's Facebook and Yelp pages was flooded with negative comments.

Schlossberg gave $500 to President Trump's presidential campaign in 2016 according to records reviewed by The Forward.
