Since the twice impeached ex-president who never won the popular vote, Donald Trump, has been banished from Twitter for life cannot take to social media to air his grievances, his son, Trump, Jr., seems to be taking care of it for him. On Sunday, Junior appeared triggered by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s words following the impeachment vote on Saturday, even after he voted to acquit Trump. Junior threw a tantrum on social media, using his classic whataboutism strategy to rile his daddy’s rabid followers.
If only McConnell was so righteous as the Democrats trampled Trump and the Republicans while pushing Russia collusion bullshit for 3 years or while Dems incited 10 months of violence, arson, and rioting. Yea then he just sat back and did jack shit.

Following the vote to acquit Trump by a cowardly Republican senate, which included only seven members willing to put the country above their own political aspirations, McConnell (R-KY) gave a speech contradicting that vote.
‘This was an intensifying crescendo of conspiracy theories orchestrated by an outgoing president who seemed determined to either overturn the voters’ decision or else torch our institutions on the way out…There is no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day. A mob was assaulting the Capitol in his name. These criminals were carrying his banners, hanging his flags and screaming their loyalty to him.’
Junior did what he always does by insisting that Democrats get away with everything while his father is always held accountable…except he never has been. President Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about an affair, and some of the same senators who voted to impeach him voted to acquit Trump for extorting a foreign country and inciting a deadly riot.
Junior equated Trump’s lies about a stolen election with the investigation into Trump’s relationship with Russian operatives during the 2016 election, except a Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee found that it wasn’t a lie. He compared a mass protest against police brutality against people of color, none of which were inspired by Democrats and none of which were stopped when Democrats spoke out against the violence by the few rioters, to his father’s directives to conspiracy-minded followers to march to the Capitol Building and “fight like hell.” The protests and riots that happened after the death of George Floyd would have happened regardless of what any elected official said. The insurrection at the Capitol happened specifically because of Donald Trump’s own words.
Twitter let Junior know they’re not falling for his tactics anymore. Read some of their comments below:
