In an interview with The Daily Caller, Trump Jr. was asked by Ginni Thomas—president of conservative non-profit Liberty Central and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas—about the “left’s efforts to frame your dad and anyone who supports your dad as a hater, as a racist, as a fascist.” Naturally, after discussing how people of color “overplay” their supposed race card, Trump Jr. seized the opportunity to defend his dad by saying that he can’t be racist because he has appeared in the same photographs as black people, including “all the rappers.”
“I see, I know him [the president], I’ve seen him my whole life. I’ve seen the things he’s done. You know it’s amazing — all the rappers, all his African-American friends, from Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, have pictures with him.”
This is the textbook definition of ‘I can’t be racist because I have black friends’. My dad isn’t racist because he has photographic evidence of him standing next to famous black people. Makes total sense. No further questions. Donald Trump loves black people because look at this photo of him with Steve Harvey.
I’m not going to sit here and defend Donald Trump Jr but imagine your father was the face of white supremacy. You’d probably be a littleee defensive of your old man. The problem is, you have to take a step back and look at all of the evidence only to release that your dad, is a straight up white supremacist.
Also, real quick, taking photos with black people does not dissolve you of racism. That’s like posting a photo on Instagram of you holding up a dead deer you’ve hunted and killed with the caption ‘I love deer’.
Fuck Donald Trump.
