Donald Trump Jr. Made A ‘#MeToo’ Joke About Guns And Transgender People
Donald Trump Jr made a “#MeToo” joke today during a discussion about transgender people and guns.
While sitting on a CPAC panel, Trump Jr. said liberals believe we can “identify how we want” to which Becki Falwell, the wife of Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, responded their granddaughter would be raised as a girl.
“We’re raising her as a girl, we’re not letting her have a choice,” Becki Falwell said, adding that that’s how “God designed” her granddaughter.
Jerry Falwell responded to his wife’s comments with a remark about girls having dolls and boys having guns.
“You don’t have to raise ’em as a girl, she’s got a little baby doll right under her arm every second and my boys always had guns in their hands,” he said.
Trump Jr. responded with ““Hashtag Me Too,” to which the group responded with awkward laughter, possibly because “#MeToo” refers to an international advocacy movement that opposes sexual harassment and assault.
In response to Trump Jr.’s “hashtag” remark, Twitter user C.J. Pitchford said, “.@DonaldJTrumpJr had dolls under his arms, too? Wait, what? Was #JuniorMints a victim of abuse? I had heard that @realDonaldTrump #traitor @POTUS had abused his son, even publicly slapping him down when the #LargeAdultSon was in college for dressing like a slob.”
