Anti-Semitism and the Trump Trolls: A Timeline

Politico journalist Julia Ioffe gets put into “Camp Trump” in a hateful picture tweeted at her. 

While Donald Trump at times appeared almost poised during last night’s debate, there is no question that he has a history of hateful rhetoric.

And it probably comes at no surprise, that this hateful rhetoric has found  a lot of copy-cats on Twitter.

I have recently compiled an interactive timeline of these attacks for the Forward, that you can look at here. For more about the scope of anti-Semitic trolling, click here.
