This is another one of those screenshotted items that I don’t think is going to remain up too long. The other day I found a piece on Truth Social which was clear conspiracy theory, about Joe Biden paying Justice Lewis Kaplan $5 million to rule against Donald Trump in the E. Jean Carroll case and that was down in a couple of hours.
So I expect the same thing here. This is Donald Trump Jr. currying favor with the worst of MAGA. And he doesn’t even hide his vicious racism. I suppose the good thing is that it’s out in the open. It might have been a dog whistle at one point but now it’s an air raid siren.
LOL, indeed. Har de har har. As LBJ once observed, “The poorest, least White man will give you every nickel he has if you convince him he’s better than the best Black man.” Don Junior is a trust fund baby with a drug habit — which he explains away unsuccessfully as “extreme animation” — and he dares to disparage a self-made woman like Michelle Obama. I’d like to see what you’d do without a backfield, Junior, and if you were in your right mind at any time and not stoned.
And of course Aaron Rupar caught some hell for posting this but I totally concur with his defense, which is why I share it here.
This is what it’s about. A lot of people have gotten on my case for amplifying and “giving oxygen to” this kind of thing, but we have to. Because to ignore this is to ratify it. To call it out, to confront it, is the only way that these things get taken down.
I am seriously expecting a confrontation over this in the next day or so or Junior may just quietly take it down, like the conspiracy theory about Justice Kaplan vanished yesterday after a short time.
This is racism and misogyny at its most vile. And this is the eponymously named son of the GOP frontrunner for president of these United States, trashing a former First Lady like this. And we trash Melania around here. But the difference is that we’re not trashing her on a racial or ethic basis. We trash her stupidity, her lies, and her hypocrisy. That’s a different kettle of fish. A person has no control over their race, gender or ethnicity. We are born what we are born. But we bloody well have some control over our actions and our character. And Don Junior fails spectacularly in those areas. As his cousin Mary has said, he’s a complete sell out, somebody who never grew up or became his own man. He lives a hollow life in the shadow of his sick fuck father. (Thank you, Uncle Joe, for providing us with the perfect descriptor for Mango Mussolini.)
As they say, the rotten apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. Especially when it’s baked, like Junior.
