The combination of pudgy shrimp fingers, a new phone, and a reckless need for all-consuming attention means that Donald Trump’s Twitter is likely to veer off the rails at times. But amplifying the words of white supremacists to 6 million people is certainly a whole new category of mess.
Turner, as it turns out, fills his feed with racist, homophobic, and anti-Semitic memes, and regularly retweets the account of David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan. His bio reads: “
#PoliticalCorrectness is killing this country. It has to be stopped. #WhiteGenocide is real. Wake up! #Trump2016 #AltRight” and includes an iron cross, a former Nazi symbol often used to show support for white supremacy.
A conservative user first noticed the tweet, which has still not been deleted.
None of the offending tweets have been removed, and they probably won’t be. In fact, this is almost definitely going to happen again.
