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:

Trump’s schedule is empty because he’s spending his days chatting with titans of industry, world leaders, and celebrities
President Donald Trump isn't jetting off aboard Air Force One every few days to preside over MAGA and KAG campaign rallies anymore, now that his pandemic is keeping much of the nation – including the president – at home. World leaders have stopped calling – at least in person – so his televised Oval Office diatribes have come to an end, at least temporarily.
Trump's calendar has been looking pretty empty these days (not a dramatic change from pre-pandemic days.)
Here's Trump's public schedule for tomorrow. (Public schedules don't include all of a president's activities.) pic.twitter.com/dst1Nybqbg
‘Pelosi’s terrible idea’: Critics denounce proposal to give wealthy a tax cut in next stimulus package
"This is almost unbelieveable."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is reportedly set to propose rolling back a cap on tax deductions, which would benefit high-earning Americans, as part of the next step of an economic stimulus package that has already poured trillions into the U.S. economy—much of it going to the richest individuals and corporations in the country.
"This is almost unbelievable," HuffPost senior reporter Emily Peck tweeted in response to the news. "Of all the things to do to help people; she wants to... give upper middle class people a tax break."
