“Millions support Donald J. Trump!” declares a flyer that is marked as paid for by the Republican presidential nominee’s campaign in Ohio.
The flyer, obtained by The Huffington Post, is a montage of supposed Trump supporters, with ordinary voters interspersed with higher-profile backers, including YouTube stars Diamond and Silk and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Also included on the flyer are Rosie O’Donnell and Eva Longoria, celebrities who have both endorsed Hillary Clinton and attacked Trump.
Despite the labeling on the flyer, the Trump campaign claimed unfamiliarity. “Our campaign does not recognize this collateral,” campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks told HuffPost.
Longoria gave a speech at the Democratic National Convention, where the ninth-generation Mexican-American said, “when Donald Trump calls us criminals and rapists, he’s insulting American families.”
O’Donnell has, of course, had a long-running spat with Trump that dates back to 2006, when she called him a “snake-oil salesman” who wasn’t self-made. Trump responded by saying he planned to sue “my nice fat little Rosie.” Trump’s insulted O’Donnell at least 56 times on Twitter and even brought her up in the first presidential debate.
The poster also lists “Muslims” among the millions supporting Trump. The corresponding photo, however, shows a Sikh man.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
