Trump Jr threatens to ‘scorn’ anyone who praises China — hours before president heaps praise on China’s leadership

Published

President Donald Trump praised China’s leadership on the coronavirus outbreak — just hours after his son warned anyone who did so should face consequences.

Donald Trump Jr. attacked China and its defenders as “propagandists” in a Thursday afternoon tweet, after his father and other Republicans had spent weeks rebranding the coronavirus as the “China flu” or “Wuhan flu,” but the president then turned around and did exactly that, reported the Washington Post.

“Anyone praising China’s ‘leadership’ in responding that the virus should be scorned for being the authoritarian/communist propagandist that they are,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

About 12 hours later, his father lavished praise on China’s leadership.

“Just finished a very good conversation with President Xi of China,” the president tweeted. “Discussed in great detail the CoronaVirus that is ravaging large parts of our Planet. China has been through much & has developed a strong understanding of the Virus. We are working closely together. Much respect!”

GOP lawmaker rails against removing bust of infamous KKK-loving Confederate general: ‘3,000 Blacks were at his funeral!’

Published

Republican Tennessee State Sen. Joey Hensley on Thursday morning made a number of historically dubious claims in his defense of keeping a bust of Nathan Bedford Forrest, an infamous Confederate general whom many historians believe was the first elected Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

According to Tennessean reporter Natalie Allison, Hensley defended Forrest's honor by claiming that while he "was in the Ku Klux Klan," he at least "was not a grand wizard."

In fact, according to the official Library of Congress website, Forrest was the first Grand Wizard of the KKK, although he later did call to disband the organization.
