    No candidate in their right mind would use the Star of David in attack ad.

    Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump drew widespread rebuke on Saturday with a tweet featuring a Star of David while accusing rival Hillary Clinton of corruption.

    The star, a symbol of Judaism, was on a backdrop of $100 bills and paired with a Fox News poll in which a majority of respondents described Clinton as corrupt. Next to Clinton’s face was a red Star of David bearing the words “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!”

    Later in the morning, Trump posted a version of the tweet with a circle instead of the Star of David. He then deleted the original tweet.

    The origins of the first post are unclear, but the attack’s apparent anti-Semitic imagery prompted backlash on Twitter. (Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, has converted to Judaism.)

    Josh Schwerin, a Clinton campaign spokesman, was among those who highlighted Trump’s tweet:

    Trump has come under fire in the past for retweeting racially charged — and factually inaccurate — propaganda and for counting known extremists, like former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, among his supporters.

    In an apparent response to the image Trump shared Saturday, Hillary Clinton’s camp tweeted a link to a who’s who of Trump’s extremist supporters on his website with the message, “The company you keep says a lot about you (maybe no one ever told Donald Trump).”

    You are absolutely right from a PR standpoint, though the Jews don't own the trademark on that symbol. It is very common to see it used by Law Enforcement organizations.

    Yeah, exactly what I was about to say. If that's antisemitic, at least half the police cars in the country are antisemitic.

    If Hillary was Jewish I could see the point but as is this is just the liberal media spinning for their gal.

    Didn't Trump repudiate any "support" from David Duke?


    Between this and the sheriff's star, not too much to see here, eh?

    That's it right there.

    As that socialist rag, Fortune pointed out months ago:

    This is the guy who just didn't know who David Duke was.

    Or didn't realize that he was retweeting a gentleman with the handle "WhiteGenocideTIM"

    Or didn't realize his own spokeswoman was following one of the #whitegenocide bloggers.

    Or didn't realize he was retweeting Vanguard 14's Jason Bergkamp.

    Etc. Etc.

    Hillary doesn't need ad buys. She has Donald on Twitter!

    Except he is playing the conservatives too. Look at Paul Ryan in full on defense and cover mode at this point. I know this may shock you: but the DawgShed posters are probably not representative of the voting electorate writ large. He needs to reach the middle. And to that end, who cares what Trump intended; the point is that it is being interpreted the wrong way, and he needs to start getting in front of this.

    Let's just say hypothetically that you are a wealthy businessperson with a valuable holding company with diverse assets, services and products. One of your goals--actually, it is a corporate duty-- is not to destroy the brands within and good will of that holding company. Wouldn't you hire a communications director for precisely this sort of thing? It's pretty basic that if you actually own and run a business, you don't want your directors, officers and employees simply retweeting and re-emailing crap to everyone on the planet. Why should a Presidential campaign be amateur hour? I have no idea what's in Trump's head. But this is like the 1,000 time he has done this; and since he NEEDS INDEPENDENTS, maybe he ought to hire someone to guard the message for the next three months. :facepalm:

    Convention hall putsch.

    LA sheriffs should immediately be given circles for badges. Expect Patrolman Ira Cohen - he can keep his.
