Donald Trump Jr.’s public appearances and selfie videos have gone completely off the rails since his twice-impeached former guy father left office. His completely nonsensical speech Friday at the hate-fest known as CPAC bombed – badly – as he spoke to a majority of empty chairs.
He performed for what audience was there, tossing out Republican red meat phrases, signifying nothing. He even tried to go after Liz Cheney with this line, which was totally lost on the crowd: “Liz Cheney and her politics are only slightly less popular than her father is at a quail hunt.”
Saturday night was another demonstration of Junior’s accelerating meltdown. Appearing on Fox News’ Watters’ World Trump made the absurd assertion that the five-week-old Biden administration is “destroying our jobs … bowing down to China,” saying it is “hurting this country bigly.”
He then made the whiplash-inducing pivot to criticizing the FBI for doing something that it didn’t do, namely investigate the theft of Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs and shooting of her dog walker in Los Angeles last week.
“When I look at what’s going on in the upper echelons of law enforcement, you know the crown jewel of law enforcement – the FBI – they’re spending more time investigating Lady Gaga’s missing dogs and garage pulls at NASCAR tracks” than the civil unrest demonstrations around the country during his father’s presidency. He went on to demand the the FBI investigate those “who burned down entire cities” during the unrest, something that never happened, of course.
Because of Trump’s bizarre claim about the FBI and Lady Gaga’s dogs the bureau took the unusual step of putting out a statement saying it was not involved in the case. The FBI’s typical practice is to neither confirm nor deny investigations. What’s more, the dogs had been returned long before Trump’s Watters appearance.
