No, according to Don, Jr, his Dad can’t POSSIBLY be racist because he liked Michael Jackson.
Trump’s eldest son writes in his new book, Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us, Don Jr, 41 refuting an accusation made against his father, that when he was a kid, he would spend time with the King of Pop, who had an apartment in Trump Tower in Manhattan.
“Oh, and by the way, given all the things my father has been called, particularly a ‘racist,’ it sure sounds odd that he’d let his son vacation with a black man or hang out with Michael Jackson, doesn’t it?
If he’s a racist, he’s sure not very good at it.”
This makes about as much sense as, “I’m not sexist! My mother is a woman!”
Jr also writes that his father is more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than his predecessor, Barack Obama.
He dedicated the 294-page book, which is scheduled to go on sale next week, to ‘deplorables,’ a reference to the term used by Hillary Clinton to describe his father’s supporters during the 2016 campaign.
In the book, Don Jr derisively refers to Mitt Romney, the senator from Utah who has criticized his father on a number of occasions, as a ‘liberal.’
He also takes on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her ‘squad,’ which includes progressive Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib.
Trump Sr has targeted the women on Twitter, at one point suggesting that, even though three of them were born in the United States, they should
“go back to where they came from”
even though three of them were born in the United States.
Don Jr also claims in his book that there is a conspiracy by social media networks to censor him.
“With every day that goes by, Twitter and Instagram are removing more and more of my posts from people’s timeline.
People who have liked or shared my posts have been reporting sudden problems with their accounts or temporary lockouts from their devices.”
Twitter denies Don Jr’s claims that he is the victim of ‘shadow banning.’
“We enforce our rules dispassionately and do not engage in so-called shadow banning. We are constantly working to improve our systems and will continue to be transparent in our efforts.”
