In Montgomery, Alabama on Thursday, Donald Trump Jr. gave a speech during a fundraiser at Faulkner University. During the speech, he jumped to his daddy’s defense following Donald Trump’s disastrous response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a Neo-Nazi ran over and killed a counter-protester.
The president took criticism for his moral relativism, equating hardcore Neo-Nazis to the counter-protesters. At one point he even said that there were some “fine people” protesting among the Neo-Nazis.
Trump Jr. said that an “atmosphere of hatred” motivated the wide-spread liberal criticism of his father’s remarks. He also accused those mean ole liberal colleges and the mainstream media of distorting what daddy said.
“He condemned … the white nationalists and the left-wingers,” Trump Jr. said during the annual fundraising gala for Faulkner University, a private Christian university in Alabama. “That should not have been controversial, but it was.”
Trump Jr. then went on to cite what he categorized as incidents of violence from the left. He focused on Antifa, as well as other far-left “anti-fascist” groups, pointing out violent clashes in Berkeley, California as one example. He also made a vague reference to a former supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who was responsible for shooting a Republican lawmaker at a congressional baseball practice session. The shooting almost claimed the life of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA).
“He went out looking for Republicans to kill,” Trump Jr. said, “and we’re supposed to forget that.”
However, Trump Jr. conveniently neglected to go into any detail regarding the cold-blooded murder of Heather Heyer at the hands of a deranged Neo-Nazi who decided to run down dozens of counter-protesters with a car.
Instead, Trump Jr. focused much of his 35-minute rant on mocking the left-leaning culture that exists within most of America’s institutions of higher learning. Claiming that the colleges brainwash young people to “hate their country” and “hate their religion.” He also claimed that they were taught to silence conservative opinions.
“Today’s conservative speech is violence. Unprovoked liberal violence is self-defense,” Trump Jr. complained. “Words have lost their meanings.”
He continued: “‘Hate speech’ is that America is a good country … that we need borders … anything that comes out of the mouth of the president … the moral teaching of the Bible.”
Please take your time and grab a drink of water if you also just threw up in your mouth a little.
One topic that Trump Jr. chose to avoid like the plague was the FBI’s Russia investigation. He also failed to mention that he may soon be compelled to give public testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee about his dealings with Russia during his daddy’s presidential campaign. It looked like he was more than happy to distract his happy conservative idiot customers — he was being paid by the university to be their keynote speaker — with neocon talking points and shiny American exceptionalism bullshit.
Trump Jr. has apparently found another way to profit off his daddy’s coattails (much like his father did around his age). He’s now going around and getting paid for speeches on his father’s behalf. After all, the Trumps are all about promoting the Trump brand to idiot masses stupid enough to vote for Donald Trump.
So far be it from a Trump to let the truth get in the way of a good sales pitch.
