Trump Jr. Stress Tweets Like A Loser As Presidency Implodes

Donald Trump Jr. remains feverishly committed to his father’s political agenda as the outgoing president’s time in office swiftly draws to a close. On Tuesday, Trump Jr. glibly tweeted the link to a news story about his father’s lead in a Gallup survey looking for the most admired men in America. A full 18 percent of the survey’s respondents named Donald as the man who they most admire — but a combined 21 percent of respondents named either former President Barack Obama or President-elect Joe Biden as the man who they most admire, making Trump’s lead seem hollow.

On Tuesday, Trump Jr. also complained about an observation from CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale that fact-checking would take on a slightly different form with Biden in the White House. Unsurprisingly, Trump Jr. failed to acknowledge the reality that underpins this shift: Donald lies and lies, while Biden simply doesn’t misrepresent the facts at anywhere near the same rate. Thus, there’s not exactly the same need for a nearly round-the-clock fact-check of the Biden White House — but, as Dale noted, the threat of online lies and lies from leaders other than Trump remains, so fact-checking in the Biden era “will necessarily expand” its scope beyond the White House, as The Atlantic explained.

Trump Jr. characterized Dale’s comments as evidence of some kind of nefarious conspiracy to smear Republicans, which is nonsense. Pretending like there’s any serious question about the frequency and magnitude of Donald Trump’s lies is nonsensical. Trump’s lying seems pathological — and other leaders who will require coverage simply don’t share this trait.

Trump Jr. also complained that Stacey Abrams’s sister, Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner, handled a recent voting rights case in Georgia, insisting that her familial connection to Abrams — a voting rights advocate — confirms that the process is “rigged.” In reality, Gardner is far from the only judge who’s rejected one of the many Republican court cases related to election procedures. Additionally, a complaint from Trump Jr. about supposedly corrupting family ties is rich. The president — whose own sister (Maryanne) has also served as a judge! — placed a couple of his own family members, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, in charge of key government functions.
