Trump general on VP shortlist retweeted anti-Semitic post Sunday
Lt. General Michael Flynn then deleted the retweet.
Flynn’s tweet remained online for nearly two hours after it was posted, despite numerous replies to Flynn on Twitter pointing out the racist implications and apparent endorsement of anti-semitism:
@GenFlynn you are going to issue an apology for this yes? You should probably just get on that right now
— Colin Donnell (@colindonnell)
Flynn eventually deleted is retweet and apologized:
All, this is what was meant to be retweeted…the earlier retweet was a mistake. My sincerest apologies. https://t.co/0s1OqEC3gr
