U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday retweeted a doctored video of himself taking a golf swing and hitting former Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton, who then stumbles as she boards a plane. Buzzfeed quickly reported on the fact that Twitter account, @Fuctupmind, from which Trump retweeted regularly "makes racial, anti-semitic, and anti-LGBT comments."
The video, retweeted by several users, shows Trump on a golf course hitting a ball before segueing to the doctored shot of a golf ball hitting then-Secretary of State Clinton in the back as she is boarding a plane. The original video of Clinton, from 2011, does not show a golf ball.
"Donald Trump's amazing golf swing #CrookedHillary," the tweet read.
Trump attacked Clinton directly last Wednesday in a pair of Twitter posts.
"Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss," he said. "She lost the debates and lost her direction! The 'deplorables' came back to haunt Hillary. They expressed their feelings loud and clear. She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!"
This is not the first time Trump has retweeted an account with a history of bigotry. Trump previously retweeted Jack Posobiec, an alt-right leader best known for creating the "rape Melania" poster as a hoax to make anti-Trump supporters look violent.
In July, Trump retweeted another spoof video of him "body slamming CNN" from a Reddit user with a history of racist posts.
