The bad apple doesn’t fall far from the rotting family tree of the Trumps.
Donald Trump Jr. didn’t seem to like what Hillary Clinton had to say about his daddy in her Reno speech on Thursday, so he took to his Twitter page to attack the Democratic nominee for, of all things, giving a peck on the cheek to the former, esteemed long-time Sen. Robert Byrd from West Virginia.
In her speech Clinton talked about Donald Trump’s long history of racial discrimination and association with right-wing bigots and conspiracists, enabling the radical alt-right fringe to take over the Republican party. And all she had to do so was repeat Trump’s own comments.
Trump Jr. was infuriated to hear his daddy’s words coming out of Clinton’s mouth before the large crowd and live TV viewing audience, so he took to his horrid Twitter page and let everyone know this:
Hillary openly endorsed KKK leader Robert Byrd and called him her “mentor” Seems relevant given her argument today but media is crickets???

First of all, my dear history-challenged young man, Sen. Byrd was NEVER a leader of the KKK. And you seem to forget that the former southern Dixiecrat-turned-Democrat renounced his membership in that group one year after he signed up. That was in the 1940s, by the way, which would make Clinton no more than 3-years old (she was born in 1947).
According to Wikipedia:
In the early 1940s, Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in Sophia, West Virginia. However, when running for the United States House of Representatives in 1952, he announced “After about a year, I became disinterested, quit paying my dues, and dropped my membership in the organization. During the nine years that have followed, I have never been interested in the Klan.”
In 1997, Byrd told an interviewer he would encourage young people to become involved in politics but also warned, “Be sure you avoid the Ku Klux Klan. Don’t get that albatross around your neck.
In his last autobiography, Byrd explained that he was a KKK member because he “was sorely afflicted with tunnel vision — a jejune and immature outlook — seeing only what I wanted to see because I thought the Klan could provide an outlet for my talents and ambitions. Byrd also said, in 2005, “I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times … and I don’t mind apologizing over and over again. I can’t erase what happened.”
And leave it to slurpee-brain Sarah Palin to climb aboard the #Trumptrain attack. She immediately went on her own rambling mess of Facebook page to post another word salad mix of whoppers, which included this: “Donald J. Trump was NEVER called a “racist” or a “bigot” until he chose to run against the anointed democrat leader, Hillary Clinton.
Another history-challenged dummy that Palin. Obviously she forgets, or didn’t know that the government took the Donald to court for discrimination in the 1970s. That’s when he made African-Americans applying to rent one of his properties to write the letter “C” (for colored person) on their applications. Once he saw that “C” they didn’t get the apartment.
I know short-term memory is the first to go, but Trump recently told African-Americans to vote for him because they’ve “got nothing to lose.” You know, because they all are poor, jobless and uneducated.
If that isn’t a racist statement, what is, Junior?
David Duke agrees with Palin and the Trumps.
Clinton Attacked Trump because I said to vote for him. Yet, she, & all Dem and Repub Senators voted for former “KKK” Byrd. Big Hypocrite!

Someone on that campaign needs to buy a new dictionary this entire family can use. They don’t understand the correct meaning of words like “racist” and bigot,” let alone the word “lazy.” I don’t know about them, but when I look up the definition of both those words, there’s a huge 8×10 glossy of Donald J. Trump.
Hey Junior, guess what, you and your daddy are “not the America I know!” And, no, contrary to your claim, President Barack Obama nor I plagiarized your words. That phrase has been around for a while, having been said many times before by, guess who? Yup, President Obama. So look up the word “plagiarise,” too, okay.
And May I also suggest that you use switch out photos for your Twitter page. With that fist up in the air, your fellow conservative racists might think you support #BlackLivesMatter.
