Trump Lets His Anti-Semitic Base In On A Secret — Hillary’s A Money-Grubbing Jew!

In a tweet sent out Saturday, the GOP nominee used a Star of David over an image of money to label Clinton the "most corrupt candidate ever!"

Apparently, Donald Trump’s dog whistle was broke on Saturday.

In the middle of shitting out a bunch of grade-A Trumpian tweets, the presumptive Republican nominee sent out the following image with the caption ‘Crooked Hillary — Makes History!’



Yeah, there isn’t even the hint of subtlety here. You have Hillary being named the “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” within a Star of David, all over an image of money. You might as well be yelling ‘money-grubbing Jew’ at the top of your lungs (or saying she’s beholden to the New World Order of banker Jews…take your pick).

Considering a large portion of Trump’s base is from the white supremacist/anti-Semitic spectrum of our society, it would be very hard to chalk this up to incompetence or an innocent mistake. The Donald has already shown a propensity for retweeting white nationalists throughout this campaign. And while he eventually disavowed former KKK leader David Duke’s support and endorsement, it took him forever to do so, and only after he ridiculously claimed he didn’t know who Duke was and acted like he was unfamiliar with white supremacy or the Ku Klux Klan.

Immediately after Trump sent the tweet, people noted that this was indeed louder than a dog whistle and was textbook anti-Semitism.


After Star of David began trending, someone must have told Donald that his call out to his fervent supporters was detected. So what did he do? Delete the original tweet? Nope. He just sent out the exact same one, sans the Star of David while leaving the original one for his fans to enjoy.


Feel the pivot!


UPDATE (7/2/2016 11:02 AM CT): Trump has since taken down the original tweet.

    The star of David might actually be Trump being typically clueless (or might be genuinely sinister).
    What strikes me as also important is how desperately Trump is cherry-picking from a Fox News poll that shows Clinton support over Trump by 6%, 44-38. Same Fox News poll:
    ‘Experienced’ Clinton 77% Trump 34%
    ‘Intelligent’ Clinton 82, Trump 66
    ‘Sensible’ Clinton 54 Trump 34
    On the corruption label, FOX NEWS says “Trump doesn’t have much to brag about here either” —
    ‘Corrupt’ Clinton 58 Trump 45 (and will go up as the Trump U facts and employee testimony become TV ads.)

    As always, my contempt is less for Trump than it is for the sewage that comprises his supporters.
