Donald Trump Jr. appeared on Newsmax this week where he tried to defend his father as his impeachment trial takes place in the U.S. Senate.
According to Trump Jr., Donald Trump shouldn’t face any consequences because Democrats “insurrected” first.
He ranted: “By that logic, we would take the last ten months and you would take the billion dollars worth of damage in looting, in rioting, in arson, in murder that took place across the country with the [Black Lives Matter] riots and the Antifa riots and you have the words of Kamala Harris, you have the actions of their campaign bailing out criminals. You have the words of Maxine Waters. You know, get up in their face. Nancy Pelosi, everyone.”
“We’ve all denounced what happened on Jan. 6,” he continued. “No one hasn’t. OK? That doesn’t mean that then, by their rules, that they would be absolved of ten months of Jan. 6 that happened across the entire country. Right?”
Trump Jr. claimed that federal buildings were “stormed” by supporters of former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“You had everything else,” he said. “All ‘insurrected’ by the Democrats and by their rhetoric on TV.”
