Donald Trump Jr. wasted no time in firing back at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her recent comments about “deprogramming” Trump supporters. Here’s the full story.
During an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Clinton discussed the 2024 election and the choice of Trump or Biden.
Trump Will Wreck Democracy
She said, “One will wreck our democracy. One violates the law on a regular basis. One appeals to the worst in our collective psyche. The other gets things done.”
“Why is that a hard choice? Sadly, so many of those extremists, those MAGA extremists, take their marching orders from Donald Trump, who has no credibility left by any measure. He’s only in it for himself,” she added.
Trump Jr.’s Response
While Clinton’s words did not shy away from expressing her stark views on Trump and his supporters, it was her assertion that Trump’s “cult members” need “formal deprogramming” that ignited a swift response from Donald Trump Jr.
Alarming and Dangerous
Speaking with Newsmax host Eric Bolling, Trump Jr. characterized Clinton’s comments as alarming and dangerous.
He expressed concern that such rhetoric indicated the Democrats’ willingness to embrace authoritarian concepts, drawing parallels with past totalitarian regimes such as those led by Mao and Pol Pot, known for their reeducation and deprogramming campaigns that caused immense suffering and death.
Trump Jr. added, “If you vote for Democrats in 2024, you are literally voting to send your friends, maybe your conservative uncle to the reeducation camps in time. They’re not pretending.”
Radical and Ridiculous Idea
He continued, “If you don’t go lockstep with every radical, insane, ridiculous idea that they put forward on a daily basis, you’re going to re-educate, and it’s only a matter of time.”
The Worst Personality
When asked about Clinton’s motivations behind such comments, Trump Jr. didn’t hold back in his critique and said, “I think she says it because she’s got the worst personality of any person in the history of politics.”
She’s Like a Reptile
“She doesn’t understand people, she doesn’t have any feelings. She’s like a reptile,” he added.
In response to Clinton’s remarks, Karoline Leavitt, a spokeswoman for a pro-Trump political action committee (PAC), also issued a statement.
Leavitt echoed Trump Jr.’s sentiment that Clinton’s comments served to confirm their belief that Trump stood as a barrier against what they perceived as Democratic attempts to suppress opposing voices.
Hillary Clinton Just Confirmed That
“President Trump has said countless times that they are only coming after him because he stands in their way from coming after you — and Hillary Clinton just confirmed that to be true,” Leavitt said.
Trump Will Win the Election
“Tens of millions of Americans will reject the Democrat Party’s reeducation camp agenda in November 2024 when we make Donald Trump the 47th President of the United States,” she added.
“Donald Trump Jr. Is a Leach”
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One user wrote, “If Hilary is a reptile, then Donald Trump Jr. is a leach, just like his old man.”
She Is a Criminal
Another user added, “While under investigation, she used Bleachbit on her personal server and bashed her cell phones. She’s nothing more than a common criminal. Treat her and anything that crosses her lips accordingly.”
A third user commented, “The MORON’s offspring is as stupid and clueless as he is! The names they call others are more suited to describe his father and siblings.”
