Tweet, Counter Tweet - Skittles Edition

When it comes to the smug, entitled spawn of neo- fascist sociopath Donald "Rump" Trump, the poison Skittle didn't fall far from the tree (h/t Mock Paper Scissors):

First, if the reference to "Syrian refugees" is in the context of the suspect in the New York/ New Jersey bombings, it's a typically stupid Trump lie (the suspect came to this country as a child from Afghanistan). More importantly, the statistics show that an American has (according to the far- right Cato Institute) a 1 in 3.64 billion chance of being killed in a terrorist attack by a refugee - far greater odds than of a person dying from eating a tainted Trump steak ("allegedly!").

Likening refugees from the horrors of war and terror to poisoned candy isn't just a Junior thing.  In fact, he borrowed this meme (as he has others) from the racist alt- right.

This seems like a more accurate analogy:

Hillary was soooo right re her "Deplorable Basket" comment, & right in the center of the Biggest Basket is this Disgusting, Deplorable Oompa-Loompa surrounded by his spawn.
