Donald Trump's Ex-Wife Says He Studied Hitler Speeches, Claims Anonymous [Video]

Donald Trump used to keep a book of Hitler's speeches by his bedside, so said Trump's ex-wife, Ivana. In the new and viral video seen below of the hacktivist group Anonymous' attack against Trump, the group cites a Vanity Fair article wherein Trump's ex-wife said Donald studied the speeches of Adolf Hitler. Not only did Donald lean heavily on his German heritage, but Trump viewed Hitler as some kind of hero -- at least, in terms of Hitler's ability to sway a crowd and hypnotize folks by his speaking abilities. According to the Vanity Fair piece, Trump's cousin even greeted Donald with a "Heil Hitler" salute.

"Donald Trump appears to take aspects of his German background seriously. John Walter works for the Trump Organization, and when he visits Donald in his office, Ivana told a friend, he clicks his heels and says, 'Heil Hitler,' possibly as a family joke.

"Last April, perhaps in a surge of Czech nationalism, Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler's collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed. Kennedy now guards a copy of My New Order in a closet at his office, as if it were a grenade. Hitler's speeches, from his earliest days up through the Phony War of 1939, reveal his extraordinary ability as a master propagandist."

However, when Trump was called to the carpet and asked about being so enamored with Hitler that Trump kept Hitler's speeches by his beside, Trump dodged the question. According to Business Insider, Trump lied and said a Jewish friend gave Trump the book.

"Trump then recalled, 'Actually, it was my friend Marty Davis from Paramount who gave me a copy of 'Mein Kampf,' and he's a Jew.'"

While Davis admitted giving Trump a book -- he said it was Hitler's speeches found in My New Order, not Mein Kampf. And David also set the record straight that he wasn't Jewish.

"But it was 'My New Order,' Hitler's speeches, not 'Mein Kampf,'" Davis reportedly said. "I thought he would find it interesting. I am his friend, but I'm not Jewish."

That's when Trump emphatically claimed that he would never read Hitler's speeches, despite Ivana saying that her ex-husband kept them by his bedside.

"If, I had these speeches, and I am not saying that I do, I would never read them."

A copy of My New Order Hardcover – 1941 by Adolf Hitler as author and Raoul de Roussy de Sales as the editor, is going for nearly $500 on Amazon.

Despite Hitler's wayward beliefs or any of those belonging to Trump, Anonymous reminds the public that no human being is illegal, and that certain tactics espoused by Trump are an open violation of the Constitution of the United States. There isn't much difference between a database for Muslims in 2016 and the "Jew" label sewn onto jackets in years past. With Donald's ex-wife admitting that Trump regularly studied the speeches of Hitler, the Anonymous video that tags ‪#‎OpWhiteRose as the White Rose Society that wouldn't stand silently by as Hitler exterminated human begins, the video has surged past 700,000 views.
