Donald Trump's 'Frozen' Outrage: Disney Uses 'Star Of David' But He Can't?

Donald Trump's latest Twitter rant questions why no one complains about a red 6-pointed star on the cover of a 'Frozen' themed book for kids, yet he can't use the Jewish symbol in an attack on "Crooked Hillary."

"Where is the outrage for this Disney book? Is this the 'Star of David' also?"

Trump was pummeled with antisemitism charges over the weekend when he tweeted a meme that used a red 6-pointed star on a bed of money next to Clinton's photo. It read "Most Corrupt Politician Ever."

Although Trump replaced the star with a circle and deleted the original tweet, he still insisted it was a sheriff's badge, not a Star of David.

Mic.com discovered that the meme was published a week earlier on a neo-Nazi website.

Clinton had some fun with Trump's anti-Disney tweet, replying with a variation on one of the Frozen songs: "Do you want to build a strawman?"
