Many Think Donald Trump’s Swipe at Jon Stewart Reflects a Larger Pattern of Bigotry

Donald Trump raised a few eyebrows Wednesday morning with a swipe at comedian Jon Stewart.

From his personal Twitter account, Trump made sure to refer to Stewart by his real name, Jonathan Leibowitz, which in turn caused many to wonder if Trump felt Stewart’s Jewish heritage was an issue.

According to Wonkette’s Rebecca Schoenkopf, Trump’s tweet shows a history of anti-Semitic comments and harassment of women and gay employees, pointing out that according to the real estate mogul’s former wife Ivana, Trump “from time to time reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, ‘My New Order,’ which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed.”

Trump has also made questionable comments about African Americans, which bolsters the suspicions of many critics who see a pattern.

    Still can’t get past the first part, where he claims to be smarter than Stewart.

    Donald needs attention. Everytime he takes his head out of his butt, it’s attention time. He and Ann “The he man”, knows what to say to get their needed attention.

    Anyone who doesn’t know Jon Stewart is a stage name, and that Jon Stewart is Jewish, and damn proud to be Jewish, has never watched The Daily Show. Anyone who doesn’t know Donald Trump is a bigot has been living under a rock somewhere.

    Right – neither can I. Notice how Donald is perpetually referring to himself as “smarter than” (and “richer than”) his detractors. As the case always is, he is neither as smart or as rich as he so artlessly implies. Sure signs of an inflated ego in search of a true sense of self worth.

    What a pathetic small little man with bad hair & a history of filling bankruptcy, John Stewart is a true gem with such horrible media coverage these days & Donald Chump is a racist doucebag with a FAUX on his head.

    Nothing new from Donald the douchebag. He has been telling this tired “joke” for months, much like a 5 year old. He thrives on hate mongering and you wonder why he is so desperate to slag and insult almost everyone. Not a happy guy.

    the “Don-eroo-ster” loves seeing his name in print. Since media have ignored this rich entitled trust fund kid who has declared bankruptcy to the tune of a few “BILLION $$” and left people with his worthless paper he’s only been good at saying “You’re Fired!”

    What a weeney.

    The funniest part is that he thinks he’s said something clever or mean. I don’t recall Stewart ever really hiding his Jewish heritage.
