VILE: Donald Trump Posted A Recycled Photo From 2017 On Holocaust Memorial Day

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, a day when countries and leaders around the world honor the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. Donald Trump decided to post a photo from 2017 because he is too lazy to take a new one.
VILE: Donald Trump Posted A Recycled Photo From 2017 On Holocaust Memorial Day

Donald Trump aligns himself with Nazis, the alt-Right and White Nationalists. He has called Nazis "very fine people" and refuses to fully denounce Nazis. He has full supports of White Nationalists (aka Nazis), such as David Duke, Richard Spencer and a litany of others. So it should surprise no one that he could not find 15 minutes to take a motorcade to the Holocaust Museum in DC (less than a mile from the White House) to take a photo. This lazy ass fool posted a photo from 2017 - where he is at least 25 lbs thinner and Melania still has her old kidneys.

His tweet didn't even have any words - just a hashtag and a statement someone else typed up. Thankfully, the statement didn't talk about how some Nazis were "very fine people", although I would not have been shocked if it did.

As the granddaughter of an Auschwitz survivor, I had thoughts:

And it’s an old photo??!? No words. This solemn day deserves so much more. I’m so sorry.

Whether they were Jewish, Roma, LGBTQ or one of the many other communities targeted, our duty to remember every soul lost to the Holocaust doesn’t wither with time. We must do all we can to stand up to genocide, hatred & bigotry in the world.

There are no words that can adequately depict the horror of what can happen when a government & country lets hate get out of control. This harrowing video serves as a stark reminder.

Never Forget. Never Again.
