Jane Eisner of The Forward published a list this week of suggestions for attendees of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference.

Top of the list is for AIPAC to disinvite the GOP presidential front-runner, who said he will speak Monday, or else give him a time slot between 3-3:45 a.m. or directly before Democratic rival Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonClinton gets birthday cheer on Hispanic variety show Warren slams GOP Sen.

"Let her eviscerate him. That’ll give him a taste of what’s to come," Eisner wrote.

She also suggested attendees simply stay away. "Trump seems like a man who gets hives if he sees empty seats."

Trump, who was announced last week as a speaker at AIPAC, said Wednesday that he'd be attending the event instead of a GOP debate Monday night. The debate has since been canceled.
Others slated to speak at the conference in Washington, D.C., include Clinton, House Speaker Paul RyanPaul RyanPence calls for Republicans to 'come home' to elect Trump Intelligence director: Withholding classified briefings from Trump, Clinton ‘not an option’ Ladies, don’t give it up for Trump MORE (R-Wis.) and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who will join via satellite.
Trump will be addressing the group after recently coming under fire for insisting that he'd stay neutral in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Dozens of rabbis are already planning to boycott the speech.
