Trump accuses Clinton of corruption with tweet featuring cash, Jewish Star of David
‘Donald Trump again plays to the white supremacists,’ says conservative radio host

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday tweeted an image of rival Hillary Clinton alongside hundred-dollar bills and a Jewish star bearing the words “most corrupt candidate ever!”, prompting outrage and bafflement on social media.
Perhaps Trump should have used one of these photographs instead:
Two hours after his initial tweet, Trump tweeted a similar image in which the six-pointed Star of David, which appears on Israel’s flag and which Jews were forced to wear on their clothing by the Nazis during the Holocaust, was replaced by a circle.
The original tweet was deleted. Critics said the image featuring the star harkened back to centuries-old anti-Semitic stereotypes, such as the belief that Jews are greedy.
Ah, no. Reeeeealllly???!!!!
“A Star of David, a pile of cash, and suggestions of corruption. Donald Trump again plays to the white supremacists,” wrote Erick Erickson, a conservative radio host who has been critical of Trump.
White supremacist? This guy looks pretty white to me.
And so do they:
Unlike this poor fellow:
And his little girl.
The Reuters / CBC article identifies Erick Erickson as a “conservative.” Erickson is NOT a conservative. He is a neocon. There is a big difference between the two and the corporate media is wilfully blurring the line. Erickson is a radio talk show host out of Atlanta whose major claim to fame is occasionally subbing for Rush Limbaugh, a drug addict who continues to call for the continued war on drugs and imprisonment of drug addicts of lesser stature than himself.
Erickson is also aligned with Bill Kristol, George F. Will and the rest of the israel-firster establishment neocon movement whose sworn objective is to see Hillary Clinton installed as president over “their” own Republican presumptive leader, Donald Trump.
Erickson and the neocons are just as much anti-Trump as the most rabid democrat. But you won’t find that reported in the corporate media. Which is why their decline continues. And which is also why neocons like Limbaugh are reduced to pushing conspiracy videos and boner pills when they used to carry G.M. and Proctor and Gamble as advertisers. Their ratings are down the toilet because they abandoned their listeners a decade ago.
Saturday’s tweet was a reminder of the unrestrained side of Trump.
Right. Meanwhile, here’s a reminder of the unrestrained side of Hitlery.
