Politics 2016: Trump, Star of David Controversy, Disney’s Frozen

donald_trump_1Donald Trump has taken aim at Disney’s Frozen in his effort to quell the controversy over his use of what critics have called anti-Semitic imagery in a tweet bashing Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.



The presumptive GOP presidential nominee, came under fire this past weekend for a tweet featuring Hillary Clinton’s picture next to a Star of David with the words “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever.” Reports quickly emerged that the star image had previously surfaced on a white supremacist message board.

The Trump campaign blamed the ensuing controversy on slanted media coverage, calling the outrage “ridiculous” and denying that the star image was taken from a white supremacist message board. The Trump campaign maintained the six-cornered star was taken from an anti-Clinton twitter feed and meant to invoke a sheriff’s badge.

On Wednesday night, Trump sent a tweet pointing to a star image on the cover of a “Frozen” book tie-in. “Where is the outrage for this Disney book? Is this the Star of David also? Dishonest media,” he wrote.

Disney reps could not immediately be reached for comment Wednesday night.
