Donald Trump Jr. likes Mike Cernovich tweet claiming pedophilia isn’t a crime

Published

Donald Trump Jr.’s twitter account turned up an odd “like” Friday night.

The Twitter-bot @TrumpsAlerts posted that the son of the president liked a tweet from Mike Cernovich, who linked to a 2014 New York Times article by Rutgers School of Law assistant professor Margo Kaplan.

The op-ed makes the case that pedophilia is a mental illness that law enforcement should work to curb abuse through prevention rather than focusing on punishment. She cited research that revealed “about half of all child molesters are not sexually attracted to their victims.” Kaplan is obviously correct, pedophilia is the disorder while child molestation is the crime.

The conversation comes just after the Alabama special election in which Republican Roy Moore was accused of molesting multiple women when they were teens. Stories surfaced of Moore being banned from a mall for preying on teens.

It’s unclear why Trump Jr. liked the news story during a national conversation about child molestation. The “like” is just one of 7,852 that Trump Jr. has done since Twitter rolled out the “favorite” feature in 2009.
