Donald Trump Jr.‘s idiocy strikes again. He now has a defense for his father’s racism — his dad allowed him to play video games with the late Michael Jackson.
In excerpt from Donnie Jr.’s new book “Triggered,” via Vanity Fair, he wrote, “Oh, and by the way, given all the things my father has been called, particularly a ‘racist,’ it sure sounds odd that he’d let his son vacation with a Black man or hang out with Michael Jackson, doesn’t it? If he’s a racist, he’s sure not very good at it.”
He also claims that when Jackson came to Trump Tower, he would play video games with him and his younger brother Eric.
Just in case you forgot, here are just a handful of receipts of Trump’s being a racist: housing discrimination lawsuits from the 1970s; the racist birther movement against Barack Obama; the Muslim travel ban; the Central Park Five (Trump called for the execution of five Black teenagers with a full page ad in the New York Times in 1989); saying a judge of Mexican heritage could not do his job because he is Mexican; and constantly attacking Black public figures (Jay Z, Maxine Waters, Jemele Hill, Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Don Lemon, etc.) while ignoring white critics like Eminem. Also, Trump’s own father was arrested at a KKK rally in 1927.
In addition, a July 2019 rally telling lhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to “go back” to where they came from. When all be three of them are from America.
Watch the disgusting moment below:
Even all the praise people like Van Jones wants to give Trump on criminal justice, he rolled back countles Obama-era prison reform policies. For example, the Justice Department will use private prisons to house federal inmates, which reverses an Obama-era policy. As The Washington Post reported, the Trump administration has “Overturned the sweeping criminal charging policy of former attorney general Eric H. Holder Jr. and directed his federal prosecutors to charge defendants with the most serious, provable crimes carrying the most severe penalties reports.” President Barack Obama made more criminal justice reforms than any president in U.S.
Plus, Trump ended the 21st Century Task Force on Policing, commissioned by the Obama administration to address tensions between police and the communities they serve. Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Trump rolled this back under their “law and order” mandate. The current AG — William Barr — is even more horrific on criminal justice.
People are disgusted by Donald Trump Jr. using Michael Jackson to excuse his father’s racism.
I'm not sure that, "My Dad can't be racist because he let us play with Michael Jackson when we were kids," is the defence Trump Jr. thinks it is. pic.twitter.com/0jkUbHpfpD— Zoë Paramour (@ZoeParamour) November 3, 2019

Don Jr thinks the fact that his dad let him play video games with Michael Jackson (!) as a kid proves the president isn’t a racist. Lol. https://t.co/RnRqOQEDUm— Mehdi Hasan (@mehdirhasan) November 4, 2019

They’re using Michael Jackson to defend Trump against being racist? My mind is blown on several levels.— Americanmade (@andypaughrules1) November 3, 2019
Did anyone else find it odd that in order to point out that his dad was not a racist Donald Trump, Jr. highlighted, in his book, (the dude wrote a book, with words in it) how his dad let him hang out with Michael Jackson in several occasions? Yeah, me neither.— Poncho Nevárez (@poncho_nevarez) November 3, 2019
Remember the time, the Trump’s proved they weren’t racist by hanging out with Michael Jackson?— Drew-Zod, II (@hstgerard) November 2, 2019
How can my dad be racist if he let my brother and me hang out with Michael Jackson when we were kids is the hottest of takes https://t.co/qmElI7veEj— The Vote Ain't No Joke Peleo-Lazar (@ChrisPeleoLazar) November 5, 2019
I swear every statement Jr makes opens up a cave into a new investigation: "So if my dad #Trump was such a racist, would he let me go on vacation with Michael Jackson by myself as a child???"— Kevin Munroe (@kevlarcomedy) November 3, 2019
Holy shit dude, SHUT UP!
Just because you had one black friend doesn't mean that you're not a racist. Even Michael Jackson wouldn't even agree with Trump being President. I'm sure he's rolling in his grave as we speak. https://t.co/S2I7UMNkGi— 🏳️🌈Kim🇰🇷 (@thekoreanmatrix) November 3, 2019
