Too Stupid to Understand an Eclipse
Here's an image re-tweeted by Donald Trump. Created by Trump fan and raging anti-Semite, Jerry Travone, the four panels are supposed to show Trump, complete with shit-eating grin, gradually eclipsing his predecessor, Barack Obama.
The majority of top responses to Trump's retweet suggested he take the image down or asked why he felt inclined to retweet the image.
“This is unbelievably inappropriate. You are the president to all Americans. Stop egging racists on,” one Twitter user, @AngelaBritzman, replied.
The Daily Beast writer Erin Gloria Ryan wrote that Trump didn’t understand the science of an eclipse.
“So he's the smaller thing that temporarily blocks the much bigger & brighter thing.... please my god teach this man how analogies work,” Ryan wrote.
