Witness this interview that Don Jr. did with “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning:
Brian Kilmeade: “And so now we’re getting to sprint towards November for — to — to see if your dad can get four more years. Are you surprised the way they’ve been handling the coronavirus situation, meaning Democrats?”
Don Jr.: “Not at all. I mean, we’ve seen — like you said, we’ve seen this play out for four years. Anything that they can use to try to hurt Trump, they will. Anything he does in a positive sense, like you heard from the reporter that was just suspended from ABC, they will not give him credit for. The playbook is old at this point.
“But for them to try to take a pandemic and seemingly hope that it comes here, and kills millions of people so that they could end Donald Trump’s streak of winning, is a new level of sickness. You know, I don’t know if this is coronavirus or Trump derangement syndrome, but these people are infected badly.”
OK, so. The President’s eldest son, who has made no secret of his interest in running for office and maybe even president in the future, is suggesting that Democrats are rooting for coronavirus to come to the United States and kill “millions of people” solely so that they might have a better chance of winning in November.
What can you say about that line of logic? At its most basic level, this sort of stuff from Don Jr. is deeply irresponsible.
UK Ambassador Gordon Sondland drove the bus over all the President’s men this morning, jammed the gearshift into Reverse and backed over them.
Then he repeated the back-and-forth several times before he was done.
