Donald Trump Retweets Creator of Pic Showing Bernie Sanders Sent to Gas Chamber

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been littered with odd moments, but this one takes the cake.

This Friday, Trump’s official Twitter feed retweeted this Tweet that takes a jab at GOP rival Jeb Bush. It shows a photoshopped image of Bush in front of the Trump Towers, holding up a “Vote for Trump” sign.

Seems innocuous enough. Until you see the account it’s retweeted from: @WhiteGenocideTM.

The account promotes a pro-Adolf Hitler documentary “The Greatest Story Never Told.”

Maybe those rumors about Trump keeping Hitler speeches on his bedside table are true after all.

But that’s not even the worst of it. A @WhiteGenocideTM photoshop creation shows Trump in a Nazi uniform flipping on the gas switch on a gas chamber housing… Jewish candidate Bernie Sanders.

We have seen our fair share of anti-Semitic tweets here at the Forward. But this one is pretty horrifying.

This would be the point where we shake our heads and tell Donald Trump to hire a new social media team. But we’re beginning to suspect the problem is a lot more systemic than an errant intern or two.
