There is literally nothing that Donald Trump and his spokespeople can drag out against former Vice President Joe Biden or the Democratic Party that wouldn’t be pure irony at this point, but using a well-known Q Anon conspiracy theory on Thursday, Donald Trump Jr. attempted to do just that and found out quickly why it was a very bad idea.
At a speaking event in New Hampshire, Junior tried pushing conspiracy theories straight from the Q Anon conspiracy webpage. Q Anon followers believe that Donald Trump is on a mission from God to liberate child sex slaves from evil Democrats and liberal elites, and yet that isn’t insane enough to detract the Trumps from shilling for their votes. Saying that Democrats are trying to “normalize pedophila,” Junior got a quick response from an onlooker who shouted “your dad raped 22 women!”
Three women have accused Donald Trump of rape: E. Jean Carroll, an anonymous accuser who filed a claim in court saying that she was raped by Trump at the age of 14 and that she was a victim of child sex trafficking at the hands of Jeffrey Epstein, and Ivana Trump, the first wife of the president and Junior’s mother, who claimed that Trump raped her during their marriage in a deposition for their divorce. Ivana later said that she wasn’t defining the incident as rape in the legal sense of the word, but the incident she described in that deposition meets the legal definition of rape.
Besides those three women, 24 other women have accused the president of other forms of sexual assault, such as groping and unwanted kissing, as well as sexual harassment. Junior would do well to avoid discussions of sexual abuse on the campaign trail.
Twitter was just as critical of Junior as the heckler in New Hampshire. Read some of their comments below:
