Donald Trump Jr. is continuing his effort to cast himself as some kind of valiant defender of the “freedoms” of the Trump base or whatever, and in so doing, he’s publicly embarrassing himself, over and over again. Every time that Donald Jr. tries to cast himself as something like a “man of the people,” it’s worth noting — he’s lived a life of financially secure privilege, to say the least. On Monday, Trump Jr. “joked” on Twitter about burning houses down to get around COVID-19-induced restrictions on large gatherings for Thanksgiving. The deceptive implication is that destruction would put the Thanksgiving gatherings on par with the violent demonstrations that top Democrats supposedly at least somewhat supported.

It’s worth noting — Trump Jr. recently tested positive for COVID-19, so if he personally had anyone over to his house, he might infect them with a deadly virus. Trump Jr. posted the following rather unhinged Monday message:

‘Asking for a friend: If you burn your house down after having more than six people over for Thanksgiving can that be considered a “peaceful protest” rather than an illegal gathering? #Thanksgiving’

In reality, of course — the Trump team’s consistent claims that Democrats who expressed support for peaceful protests actually offered cover for violent rioting are lies. Top Democrats did no such thing. President-elect Joe Biden has repeatedly and consistently unequivocally condemned violence in all its forms, and Trump Jr. can’t just wish all of the actual, very real peaceful protests out of existence because they don’t fit his narrative. It’s worth noting — not only is the claim false that top Democrats were okay with violence, but the claim is also false that nobody or close to nobody on the generally liberal side of the spectrum acknowledged the potential for COVID-19 transmission at protests. Plenty of liberals openly acknowledged this possibility.

Meanwhile, Trump Jr. also complained on Twitter on Monday about the “thugs and criminals” who confronted Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on the streets of D.C. — although no one even seems to have laid a finger on him — and he also complained about some right-wingers who have suggested sitting out the upcoming Georgia Senate elections as some kind of “protest” against authorities who won’t take their ramshackle voter fraud claims seriously enough. Lin Wood, an attorney who was behind a recent court case seeking to block the certification of Georgia’s election results, is one of those who’ve made this suggestion for conservatives to sit out Georgia’s Senate elections.

Donald Jr.’s meltdown as his side continued to lose, big time, in their court fights against the election results. Check out Twitter’s response below:
