‘It was an absolute disaster for them’: Far-right activists gloat after triggering Trump Jr at UCLA

Published

on

Right-wing activists over the weekend forced Donald Trump Jr. to abruptly end a promotional event after they relentlessly heckled him for refusing to do a question-and-answer session.

Some far-right hecklers have told the Guardian that they were trying to protest the Trump administration for not being racist enough by only going after undocumented immigrants instead of all immigrants.

“It was an absolute disaster for them,” one of the hecklers explained to the Guardian. “We wanted to ask questions about immigration and about Christianity, but they didn’t want to face those questions.”

The protests against Trump Jr. were organized by Nicholas Fuentes, a white supremacist who participated in the infamous 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

After Trump Jr. rushed off the stage, Fuentes took a victory lap on Twitter and said that the president’s son was making a big mistake by allying with Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, whom he accused of undermining Trump’s “America First” agenda.

“President Trump’s agenda has been subverted from the beginning by people in his White House or inner circle who didn’t vote for him, aren’t loyal to him, and actively oppose his policies,” Fuentes wrote. “They are the Globalist GOP swamp trying to recapture the party from Trump and his voters!”

Atlas Winfrey, an organizer with anti-fascist organization Refuse Fascism, says that the protests against Trump Jr. show how the far right has grown and become more influential.

“Trump Jr’s event was a debacle because it was disrupted by fascists critical that Trump is not ethnically cleansing the country of ALL non-white immigrants and only going after the undocumented immigrants,” Winfrey said. “This should sound an alarm on the degree to which a fascist student movement is gaining ground on US campuses.”

GOP’s Joni Ernst may have inadvertently boosted Joe Biden in Iowa: ex-White House official

Published

On CNN's "New Day," regular contributor and former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart almost rolled his eyes at a clip of Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst rushing to the cameras to gush about attacks on Joe Biden, saying she may have ended up helping the former vice president in her own state.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota after watching the clip of the Iowa Republican blurting, "The Iowa caucuses are this next Monday evening, and I'm really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic goers. Will they be supporting VP Biden at this point?" Lockhart seemed in disbelief that she may have handed Biden a boost.

Published

on

Ivanka Trump complained about coastal elites to defend her father -- and was swiftly met with furious mockery.

The White House adviser and eldest daughter of President Donald Trump shared a video clip of former Republican strategist Rick Wilson ridiculing the president's "credulous boomer rube" supporters, and complained the attack was derogatory and unfair.

"You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided," Ivanka Trump tweeted. "The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting."

You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided.
