Ten days ago Donald Trump Jr. gained widespread scorn after he posted a tweet which compared Syrian refugees to a bowl of poisoned Skittles. Two days later it was learned that the British amateur photographer who had posted the original Skittles photo to Flickr is a former refugee himself and that he detests Donald Trump. The photographer told the press that he was “unsure” about filing a copyright claim against Junior, but that has apparently happened as today the image was removed from Junior’s tweet.
This image says it all. Let’s end the politically correct agenda that doesn’t put America first. #trump2016 pic.twitter.com/9fHwog7ssN
