Trump hammered for appealing to anti-Semites with ‘dog whistle’ Hillary Star of David post

Published

While most people were taking the 4th of July holiday weekend off, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump was up bright and early on Twitter, claiming he has filled his speakers roster for the GOP convention before turning his Twitter guns on Hillary Clinton with a graphic that has people scratching their heads.

The day after the Clinton campaign announced it had raised more than $68.5 million for Hillary for America, the Democratic National Committee and state parties in the month of June, Trump took a back-handed shot at Clinton for her fundraising prowess using a Star of David on a field on money graphic.

(UPDATE:  The Trump campaign deleted the tweet, and replaced it with another  featuring a circle instead of the Star of David.  No explanation was given.)

The tweet, which can be seen below, reads: “History made. Most corrupt candidate ever,” with a “Fox News Poll” banner, accompanied by a photo of the former Secretary of States next to the religious symbol.

The imagery, including the bed of money, was not lost on observers who called out the candidate, accusing him of appealing to his anti-Semitic and neo-Nazi supporters.

First, McConnell was forced to change the impeachment hearing rules. After a huge uprising by Americans demanding to be able to watch the impeachment trial during normal human hours, senators told McConnell he'd lost the votes to hold proceedings after midnight.

‘Disease fanboy’: Internet slams NBC conservative for ‘rooting for pandemic’ to distract from Trump impeachment trial

Hugh Hewitt is once again under fire, this time for almost appearing to be glad a deadly SARS-related virus has been diagnosed in a patient in Washington state – saying additional diagnoses will take the focus away from the Senate's historic impeachment trial. Hewitt is a conservative Washington Post columnist, radio host, MSNBC and NBC contributor, and law professor who went from being a "Never-Trumper" to all-in for President Donald Trump.

"People care much more for their health than theater," said Hewitt via Twitter, referring to Trump's impeachment trial. The SARS-related virus, known as the Wuhan coronavirus, is named for an area of China where it was first found. It "has infected more than 300 people and killed six in an outbreak that has struck China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and now the US," CNN reports.

Trump had bragged to the executive controlling the sale that he could use his political connections to get tax breaks for the deal.

The executive was skeptical. But the next day, the executive was invited into Trump’s limousine, which ushered him to City Hall. There, he met with Donald’s father Fred and Mayor Abe Beame, to whom the Trumps had given lavishly.
