The rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the rotten tree, to quote Jay Inslee, with regard to this incident. Donald Trump Jr. saw the following tweet on June 27.
Kamala Harris is “not” an American Black. She is half Indian and half Jamaican.
I’m so sick of people robbing American Blacks (like myself) of our history. It’s disgusting. Now using it for Debate Time at #DemDebate2?…
Trump Jr. tweeted, “Is this true? Wow.” Then he deleted the tweet.
Joe Biden called it an attack on Harris’ citizenship and racial identity, similar to what was used on Obama.
So, Junior planted the seed. And you can be sure that there are plenty of MAGAts who will water it and give it plenty of sun. This is exactly the kind of poisonous vine that they love to nurture. Xenophobia, coupled with racism and conspiracy theory. What a hybrid.
Jay Inslee nailed it on the head. He not only made the above-noted comment about the rotten apple falling not far from the tree, he also paraphrased the famous line from the McCarthy era, “Have you no decency, sirs?” No, they have not. And with respect to the Trumps, the word, “sir” is spelled “cur.”
