Trump Adviser Roger Stone Tweets Image of Nazi Mascot "Pepe the Frog"

A cartoon frog named "Pepe" has become a very well-known, quite ubiquitous symbol used by neo-Nazis and the racist "alt-right."

So today, as Trump and his surrogates are pitching a huge fit of fake outrage that Hillary Clinton (correctly) called out many of his supporters as racists and bigots, close Trump adviser Roger Stone tweets the following photoshopped image -- featuring the Nazi mascot Pepe the frog. They're excellent at the art of self-beclownment.

Roger Stone is no Photoshop expert, and I'll bet this image originated at one of the websites frequented by "alt-right" racists. Here's a similar image posted in Reddit's "The_Donald" section yesterday.

And by the way, Trump himself has also retweeted the Nazi mascot image you see above:
