Donald Trump tweeted, retweeted and then deleted an image of Jeb Bush next to a Nazi swastika. The image also included former Presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush as well as Prescott Bush.
A spokesperson for Trump stated, “This was retweeted by Mr. Trump like hundreds of others. He did not see the accompanying image and the retweet has since been deleted.”
I can only draw two conclusions from that statement. Either Trump is lying or, if he didn’t actually see the swastika, his campaign is out of control with no one in charge of the ship.
Sadly, the Bush-Nazi comparisons are nothing new. But it does seem strange that a Republican presidential candidate who go in Noam Chomsky/Lyndon LaRouche territory. The specific image itself is associated with a website which speaks of “Jewish and Russian-Jewish mafiya dimensions” and “Zionazis”. But if Jeff Lord thinks a campaign which propagates the Chomsky/LaRouche/”Zionazi” view of Jeb Bush is a winner then I can only hope he is comfortable with the company he keeps.
Having said all this I don’t think Jeb Bush should be the Republican nominee. I don’t think he has much to offer except for specious attacks on Marco Rubio. Jeb Bush deserves to be criticized for many things, but being a Nazi isn’t one of them. The fact that the Trump would see fit to send out a tweet (and retweet it) with such an association demonstrates both his lack of sobriety and his complete and utter stupidity.
