It wouldn’t be a day ending in “y” if Donald Trump Jr didn’t take an ignorant swing and miss at someone. So when Kamala Harris dominated last night’s Democratic debate and became the candidate with the current momentum, Trump Jr promptly went after her. Predictably, he attacked her in racist fashion. By the time it was over, he’d screwed up so horribly, his spokesperson was left trying to clean up his mess.
Kamala Harris is descended from an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Last night Donald Trump Jr, who is half stooge and half idiot, retweeted someone who insisted that Harris is “not an American Black.” Junior then added his own words: “Is this true? Wow.” This seems like the kind of thing he’d try to research before just retweeting while admitting he didn’t know if it was true, but then again, he’s an idiot. He’s also a blatant racist.
Donald Trump Junior was, in no uncertain terms, accusing Kamala Harris of not being a real American. This is the same racist garbage that Donald Trump Senior spent years doing to Barack Obama. Fortunately, so many people called Junior out for his racism, he ended up deleting his idiotic tweet. But the hits kept coming, so Junior’s spokesman released a statement to the media insisting that Junior was somehow referring to Kamala being half-Indian – even though this had nothing to do with what he tweeted or retweeted.
