His father has been credibly accused by two dozen women of sexual misconduct, including rape. But to Donald Trump, Jr. it’s all just a punch line in service to his family’s retention of power, his father’s re-election, and his own potential 2024 run for the White House.
Monday night in Fayetteville, North Carolina a litany of top Trump supporters – Sen. Thom Tillis, Diamond and Silk, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and Donald Trump, Jr. – “opened” for the President of the United States.
In the handoff between the former Fox News anchor and her boyfriend, Donald Trump, Jr., the president’s son gave Guilfoyle a kiss – then made a #MeToo “joke” – and a sexual one at that.
“I will not be getting #MeToo’d this evening, alright?” Trump Jr. “joked” to the crowd, as The Washington Post reported.
Trump Jr. nonsensically claimed the media might sue him, so he wanted everyone to see that she had consented.
And then, he said this: “Kimberly may #MeToo me later but that’s a different story.”
Watch (begins at the 3:42:55 mark):
The Post notes that “Pollsters and political strategists believe that’s a big mistake.”
It wasn’t his first time making a #MeToo “joke.” Here’s Trump Jr. back in March, with Jerry and Becki Falwell:

GOP senator offended LDS community after likening Trump to a ‘selfless’ Book of Mormon hero: report
Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.
"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.
"To my Mormon friends, my Latter-day Saint friends, think of him as Captain Moroni," Lee (R-UT) said, pointing to Trump. "He seeks not power, but to pull it down. He seeks not the praise of the world or the ‘fake news,’ but he seeks the well-being and the peace of the American people."
Al Franken warns voters Mitch McConnell ‘is not as charming as he looks’ on HBO’s ‘Real Time’
Former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) showed off the sense of rumor that put him on "Saturday Night Live" during a Friday night appearance on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher.
The two politically-minded comedians had a fascinating debate on what would happen if President Donald Trump refuses to leave office on January 20, 2021.
Franken said that would be a good thing, as it would mean Trump lost and would be escorted from the premises. Maher, however, had far less faith in America's institutions.
The two agreed to disagree on the topic.
Franken urged viewers to vote for Democrats in Senate races, warning that if Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) remains in power he would block everything a potential Joe Biden administration might try to accomplish.
HBO’s Bill Maher takes on ‘Trump thugs’ and super-spreader rallies in final ‘Real Time’ before the election
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher reviewed the latest news on the Friday night before 2020 election.
"Four days until the election," he noted. "As Stormy Daniels once said, 'Let's just get this over with!'"
He noted the huge turnout and said, "the Supreme Court said some of the votes may even be counted."
"Trump has not been this scared of the mail since the draft," he joked.
Maher also took on the "Trump thugs" and counseled voters on an obscene comment they could say to MAGA poll watchers.
The host also discussed Trump's super-spreader events and the COVID-19 outbreak in the White House.
