‘Alt-right’ supporters of Donald Trump have blamed Jews for his perceived lacklustre performance in the Presidential Debate yesterday.

Alt-right supporters of the candidate held a live YouTube stream of the debate, which unsurprisingly featured many antisemitic comments.

Comments included “CUT ALL TAXES…JEWS ALREADY CAN PRINT ALL THE MONEY THEY WANT” and “ALL THESE DEBATES ARE RIGGED…fucking judu”.

One suggested that the moderator of the debate had been somehow controlled by Jewish influence, writing “Anderson cooper eats jew dick”. Trump stated at several times that he believed the debate moderation to be unfair.

Another wrote “Greatest Kike Pussy Grabber of All Time”

The live stream was organised by the publisher of the Daily Stormer, an overtly racist and nationalist publication. Followers of the website often refer to Trump as their “glorious leader”, often complaining that there is a Jewish conspiracy to undermine him. He has previously written of a “Jewish problem” and admitted that white nationalism is central to the alt right movement.
