Love him or hate him, there is plenty legitimate criticism aimed at Donald Trump, can we back off the completely ridiculous made up stuff?
…like a six-pointed star shaped like the Star of David.
The presumptive GOP nominee posted a meme on Twitter alleging that Democratic rival Hillary Clinton is corrupt. The meme featured a Fox News poll in which a majority of respondents describe her as being corrupt and included a backdrop of money and a caption embedded on a red star that said: “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!”
That the star resembled the Star of David — it could also be a sheriff’s badge — was enough for some to label Trump as “anti-Semitic.”
As criticism built, Trump would delete the original tweet and replace it with a meme that used a red circle instead:
But the anti-Trump forces had already been set in motion, alleging he intentionally used the symbol of Judaism. More than one social media user pointed out that the six-point star also represents a sheriff’s badge, which is sure to scare the criminally minded.
Here’s a quick sampling from Twitter:
