It’s really kind of comical when you think about it: a born-rich self-professed billionaire’s son has spent the past five years building a narrative about how he and his family are persecuted, treated unfairly by an unjust system, making them just like the poor working class in the depths of their despair. Yet some people still buy the story, which is why Donald Trump, Jr. is still telling it.

Junior filmed a video following the Supreme Court ruling that will allow the Southern District of New York, under SDNY Attorney General Letitia James, to have access to the ex-president’s tax records in the potential tax and bank fraud investigation currently overseen by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance. He whined that his father is being persecuted, harassed for his views, and that it’s a travesty against the entire United States of America.
In truth, he’s being investigated for what Trump’s former personal attorney says are years of overvaluing his real estate assets on loan documents and devaluing them on tax documents to avoid paying taxes. It’s not persecution unless everyone who’s ever been investigated for a crime has also been persecuted. In Trump’s case, he’s white and wealthy, and that’s likely the only reasons he’s escaped notice for so long.
Tax returns aren’t the only, nor might they be the worst, source of the Trump family’s problems. There’s also that whole inciting an insurrection thing as well as an investigation into Trump’s attempts to interfere in the Georgia elections. Junior is going to have a lot of videos to make.
Twitter had absolutely no sympathy for poor Junior. Read some of their comments below:
