Does Donald Trump have a tin ear? Is he blind to symbolism?

Yesterday in a rambling campaign speech, he abandoned his prepared remarks and spoke defiantly about the anti-Hillary tweet that used a six-pointed star, which many assumed to be an anti-Semitic slur.

His Jewish son-in-law had referred to the tweet’s imagery as “careless,” but Trump said he should never have deleted the tweet.

He is his own worst enemy.
