Donald Trump Jr was informed this week that the first step in the dismantling of his entire life is now locked into place. Jackie Speier of the House Intel Committee confirmed that Junior will be the committee’s very first subpoena target, meaning they’re sitting on enough evidence to nail him for several felonies, and they plan to plaster that evidence all over the airwaves in short order. It also means Junior can likely count on being indicted around the time he’s being hauled in to testify. Junior isn’t taking it well – at all.
CNN’s Jim Acosta posted a video today which revealed that, despite McAllen, Texas having stretches of border that are easily crossable, the city has no illegal immigrant problem, and a very low crime rate. Donald Trump doesn’t have the kind of attention span necessary to watch a twenty-five second video all the way to the end, so he retweeted the video, mistakenly thinking it bolstered his argument for a wall. That’s when Junior got involved.
Donald Trump Jr, who’s so mind numbingly stupid he makes his father look smart, then took things further. Junior tweeted this at Acosta: “The reason why all of Twitter has been mocking you today is because you were at a part of the border WITH A WALL.” Again, Acosta’s video had no wall at all, and large gaps in between the obviously unnecessary steel slats. Once Acosta explained to Junior that he was an idiot, Junior decided that violence was the answer.
Donald Trump Jr decided to retweet a video which depicted Donald Trump running over Jim Acosta with a golf cart at high speed, presumably killing or maiming Acosta in the process, with Trump’s superimposed voice yelling “Go home to mommy.” It was sick, it was twisted, and it was a clear and direct call to violence. If Acosta were murdered tomorrow by a Trump supporter, Junior would be criminally charged for it. Then again, Junior the traitor is going to spend the rest of his life in prison anyway.
