Last night, House Democrats revealed their plans to begin delivering on campaign promises during the midterms to bring liars and criminals in the Trump administration to justice, which might explain why Donald Trump Jr. posted a horribly offensive argument in favor of his father’s border wall on social media.
Donald Trump Jr., in an Instagram post, argued that his father’s wall is just like a zoo fence that keeps out dangerous animals. “You know why you can enjoy a day at the zoo?” Trump Jr. wrote in last night. “Because walls work.”
The president’s son is fully equating poor refugees and children from south of the border to animals. How is this not racial? You can use many other examples of walls if you want to make an argument for a border wall, but Trump Jr. specifically picked the one example that fully dehumanizes immigrants by comparing them to zoo animals. This is bold, even for Trump Jr., so perhaps a revelation from House Democrats right before he posted this explains him taking his anger out on immigrants.
House Democrats revealed late last night that they will issue their very first subpoena to none other than Donald Trump Jr. himself. The announcement was made by Democratic Representative Jackie Speier while she was speaking to the Woman’s National Democratic Club, “There are a number of persons that testified before the committee that I feel were not telling the truth.”
The GOP controlled House released a report that “cleared” Trump Jr. of collusion with Russians, but since then, numerous reports have detailed all the lies he told Congress behind closed doors. Rep. Jackie Speier called that report a “whitewash” and said that House Democrats will subpoena key documents.
“Those documents were never subpoenaed by the Republicans and so they were able to just produce a whitewashed report that probably was written by someone on the presidential staff. I think it was truly a disturbing series of events over the last two years,” she said.
“I think in short order we’re going to see all of the dots connected in a way that shows that there were people that were treasonous, there were people that were clearly conspiring to affect the election with the Russians, and it will go down in history as one of the real black eyes in our country,” she added.
Do you think the revelation that Trump Jr. will be the first person Democrats will subpoena contributed to his horribly racist post on social media? Or is he just a racist that likes to compare refugees to zoo animals?
