Donald Trump Jr. is continuing to push some of the same nonsense that he and ex-President Donald Trump spread prior to the former commander-in-chief’s recent exit from the White House. On Monday morning, among other posts, Trump Jr. even shared a thread in which the original author called on people to “yell” at their state legislators over the imaginary election fraud that the former president’s allies claim plagued the recent presidential election. Earlier this month, a mob of Trump supporters violently stormed the U.S. Capitol building, where they attempted to forcibly disrupt the Congressional proceedings to certify the electoral college outcome and Biden’s victory. Weeks later, Trump Jr. is still publicly lauding the idea of physical confrontations with government leaders.

Check out some of the thread that Trump Jr. said is a “must read” below:

Trump Jr. also offered support for the new campaign of former Trump administration official Sarah Huckabee Sanders for Arkansas governor — a position that her father, Mike Huckabee, once held — and complained about criticism of Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), a controversial first-term far-right member of Congress. In a Twitter post, Boebert insisted that the entire federal Department of Education should be abolished, and in response, a critic noted that Boebert’s own formal education topped out at a GED. In response to the critic, Trump Jr. petulantly posted as follows:

‘Yet [Boebert] made it to congress. Maybe our formal education/indoctrination system is highly overrated and not a measurement of actual intelligence. Also, the disdain so many of those with worthless degrees who think they’re somehow better than hard working people brought you MAGA!’

Trump Jr. is, of course, grossly misrepresenting the situation. Characterizing the formal education system in the United States as an “indoctrination system” is ridiculous, and pretending like there’s some kind of conspiracy among holders of “worthless degrees” to denigrate “hard working people” is also ridiculous. Certain degrees are not some kind of automatic indicators of elitist snobbery. In the real world, many people with degrees might not even get a chance to put those degrees to good use. Trump Jr. is petulantly concocting a culture battle where one doesn’t exist, and the ignorance on display in his tweet is, in actuality, Trumpism’s root.

Among other posts, Trump Jr. also complained about Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who voted in favor of impeaching then-President Trump after he helped incite the Capitol rioting, and he also grossly mischaracterized the Biden administration’s approach to the economy in response to a screenshot that appeared to be from a right-wing news source. He also falsely characterized Democratic COVID-19 policies as “just staying shut down forever.” Check out his posts below:
