Politico – Donald Trump invoked a Disney book Thursday night to argue that his tweet featuring an image of Hillary Clinton, a pile of cash and a a six-pointed star was not anti-Semitic, as many have alleged, keeping the controversy alive for the yet another day.

“Where is the outrage for this Disney book? Is this the ‘Star of David’ also? Dishonest media! #Frozen” the presumptive Republican nominee said, referencing the controversy that embroiled the campaign over the holiday weekend.

    the key deciding factors  for me is : 

    a. The very strong and direct role that Hillary  Clinton played in initiating the US contacts with Iran’s hardliners to discuss recognizing  Iran’s  nuclear program.  { This  took place well before the time that the so-called moderates were elected in Iran .]

    b. Hillary Clinton’s very strong support of the misleading efforts by the  Obama administration to sell the “agreement” to the US public (partially by demonizing the  very justified Israeli  opposition to this “agreement”).  [This was very much like Bill Clinton’s  assurance to the American public that North Korea had fully given up its nuclear and ballistic missile programs… When in fact they had not.]

    Unfortunately, a close relative of one of my best researchers was instrumental in originating and spreading this blood libel against Donald Trump. Here is more material which makes this accusation not only ridiculous, but vicious.

    DAN SCAVINO, the staff member responsible for social media, was the individual who actually created and issued that posting.

    DAN SCAVINO, IS MARRIED TO A JEWISH WOMAN . DAN SCAVINO PUT OUT THE TWEET TALKING ABOUT CROOKED HILLARY CLINTON

    Trump could have attacked DAN for being oblivious to what would happen when the Jewish left Hillary supporters saw the ad. But Donald Trump didn’t lash into Dan. While I don’t like Donald Trump, his staff universally report that he treats them with kindness and respect.

    Hillary’s staff, including the Secret Service, routinely report that she is very difficult to work with and work for. When Bill was involved with Monica ,Bill’s statements ,as documented in the hearings , were similar.
