Imagine that, now David Duke is more sincere than Trump. LOL Duke will probably get higher favorable ratings than Trump at this point. At least Duke doesn't hide his intentions and true feelings.

LOL I think the first time Scavino saw that image was on CNN. Trump would never allow anyone to use his Twitter account. If this had been Scavino's work he would have created a new image, not borrow some crap from the internet.

Trump is such a scumbag that he makes his employees take all the fault. At least in the past he just said "an intern did that" When this election is over and if Trump loses I guarantee you we are gonna hear about the abuses these employees go through every day.

Scavino lied about it

"The sheriff's badge -- which is available under Microsoft's 'shapes' -- fit with the theme of corrupt Hillary and that is why I selected it," Scavino added.

he didn't select the shape, he opted to lift a meme that had been floating around the white supremacy corners of the internet.

If Trump and his team couldn't understand the potential for this to be seen as anti-semitic, their stupidity disqualifies them to run the country.

The takeaway is that Trump has limited intermittent access to his Twitter account.

In Europe there is so.much anti semitic feelings and remarks but if this would be considered to be one of them than we would be over sensitive.

Over there they sell Juden cookies and nobody cares ...and frankly they are very good.
Seriously, can someone explain this to me? I really don't know what Juden cookies has to do with this?!?!?

No but it had the word "stickers". That's short for "swas-stickers". And the big nose on the snowman is clearly anti-Semitic. The whole story is about finding the true power of whiteness.

"The social media graphic used this weekend was not created by the campaign nor was it sourced from an anti-Semitic site," Scavino said in a statement separate from Trump's. "It was lifted from an anti-Hillary Twitter user where countless images appear."
"The sheriff's badge -- which is available under Microsoft's 'shapes' -- fit with the theme of corrupt Hillary and that is why I selected it," Scavino added.

Scavino's wife is Jewish, by the way.

I call BS. The 'excuse' came AFTER a trump supporter suggested it. I have followed this closely and the timeline is clear. You aren't the only Jew here, so you, nor Scavino, whether his wife is Jewish or not, are the spokesperson for Jews and cannot discount the opinions of those who take offense.

Who is 'they'?

Trump mistook Jewish cookies for Sheriff's stars?
You know how it is when a person is grasping at straws in a debate. Any old straw will do.

Following that line of logic says all Sheriffs must therefore be Jewish.

Disney's Frozen!
Was it created by a white supremacist and shared on white supremacists social media?

At this point, the star doesn't matter. It was taken from a white supremacists social media. How many times has Trump been caught re-tweeting white supremacist propaganda now? A dozen? Ive lost count.
