Donald Trump Jr. Does NOT Want You To Taste The Rainbow

The Trump family strikes again, this time with the littler Donald comparing Syrian refugees to a bowl of poisoned Skittles. Oh, brother.

Yesterday afternoon, Donald Trump Jr tweeted a picture of a bowl of candy with the message, “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee problem.”

He added, “Let’s end the politically correct agenda that doesn’t put America first.”

What an utter ball of rotten slime. If anyone is comprised of toxic sludge in this situation, it’s the racist Trumps.

Obviously, the Syrian refugees are no more dangerous than anyone else.

In contrast,32,675 people were killed in car crashes in 2014. Right-wing domestic terrorists have killed more people since 9/11 than jihadists. There are so many bigger threats to the country than refugees — but hey, sure, go ahead and stigmatize the foreign brown people, that’s always a sign of a healthy democracy.

The company that makes Skittles in unamused by the position that this puts them in. “Skittles are candy. Refugees are people,” said a spokesperson. “We will respectfully refrain from further commentary as anything we say could be misinterpreted as marketing.”
