News: Donald Trump Jr. should have known what he was getting himself into when he tweeted “Just read Epic Coward Donald Jr.’s hatred and intolerance for anyone not white, male, and straight.”
At least, he should have at least know this is going to make the next 20 seconds really really annoying for 20 minutes.
Donald Jr.’s tweet, which has since been deleted, was in response to a New York Times article, authored by long-time Trump confidant Roger Stone, in which he defends his racist grandfather Eugene Debs.
Stone quotes Debs as saying, “the best way to beat the bigots is to have yourself blatantly openly and brutally exploited by them”. Debs died of pneumonia in prison in 1931.
Stone suggests that Debs is “thrilled by President Trump’s social-media use,” which was apparently not said. “That’s why I blame Trump’s consistent opposition to the Vietnam War and his call for reviving a 20th century Republican tradition of principled opposition to it.”
I never saw it.
