Donald Trump Jr. Compares Syrian Refugees to a Bowl of Poisoned Skittles Candy

Vile

Donald Trump Jr. has blocked the LGF account after we revealed several of his associations with antisemites and white supremacists, but we have ways to see what he’s tweeting anyway — and today he tweeted something so ugly and yes, deplorable, that I did an honest to goodness double take:

The dehumanization factor is off the scale here; he’s literally comparing desperate people fleeing violence, war and persecution to a bowl of poisoned candy. Please note the official campaign logos on this image; this seems to be something they’re actually using as promotional material for their sick, un-American views.

And it’s very likely the use of “Skittles” is a racist dog whistle intended to evoke the killing of Trayvon Martin among Trump’s right wing base of supporters. It’s pretty safe to say that will be the first thing many of them think of.
