Donald Trump Jr. celebrated Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney’s humiliating defeat in her state’s GOP primary by releasing a 30-second video that was clearly intended to trigger the never-Trumping liberals on Twitter — and, naturally, it worked like a charm.
Rep. Cheney was defeated by Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman on Tuesday in the Republican primary for Wyoming’s at-large congressional district.
Don Jr. took to Twitter to poke fun at Cheney’s loss by posting a video montage of his father, former President Donald Trump, gleefully dancing with the caption, “Bye bye @Liz_Cheney. On the bright side at least you won’t have to pretend to be from Wyoming anymore.”
Hoo boy, talk about kicking the hornets’ nest. The reactions on Twitter were so predictably full of vulgarity and low-brow name-calling that we can’t share most of them here, but you’ve seen it all before.
Don Jr. has had an interesting couple of days on Twitter. Just yesterday he was actually vindicated by fact-checkers (yes, you read that right) who called BS on a widely circulated but completely fabricated tweet that made it look like he was bashing his father’s supporters.
Don Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to weigh in on the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid and explain why he believes the Justice Department targeted his father and pedaled lies to justify it. He also gave his advice on what conservatives can do to peacefully and lawfully stand up against a system that’s ignoring their rights.
