In a sickening display of fake news from across the Atlantic, the left-wing German magazine Stern has portrayed President Donald Trump as a Nazi.
I’m not talking a “Hitler mustache” on a picture of him walking the White House grounds, either. I mean they photoshopped him draped in an American flag, performing a Nazi salute.
On Wednesday, Stern teased next week’s cover on its Facebook page.
The magazine captioned it (in German, of course): “His Fight! Neo-Nazis, Ku-Klux-Klan, racism: How Donald J. Trump fuels hate in America.”
It’s also worth noting that the Nazi salute is illegal in Germany and, although it’s not likely to be enforced, Germany does have anti-defamation laws for foreign heads of state, according to the Media Laws Database.
Also — what does “Sein Kampf” remind you of?
It probably won’t surprise you to know that this publication has a history of fake news.
In 1983, Stern published what it claimed to be the diaries of Adolf Hitler, which was later proved to be, well, fake, as The New Yorker reports. .
Given that past, it is perhaps not too surprising that the publication is not only taking a swing at Trump, but doing so in such a disgusting and patently false way.
The next time one of your liberal friends points to Germany as the new leader of the Free World — and there are lot of liberals who think that — show them this.
Their response will tell you a lot.
