US –Trump Jr. is under fire for the message he posted over the weekend on Twitter and Instagram that references the violent attack on Paul Pelosi.
Former President Donald Trump condemned the violence that targeted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while his son, Trump Jnr. tweeted tasteless jokes about the hammer attack on Paul Pelosi on Monday.
In the Former President statement, he said:
“With Paul Pelosi, that’s a terrible thing, with all of them it’s a terrible thing,” Trump told Americano Media, a conservative Spanish language news site. on Friday.
“Look at what’s happened to San Francisco generally. Look at what’s happening in Chicago.” Donald Trump concluded.
But Trump Jnr. generated a different feeling to the situation of Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was allegedly attacked with a hammer in his San Francisco home on Friday morning by 42-year-old suspect David Depape.
The son of former President Donald Trump, made light of the attack with a message on Twitter.
His tweet shared a post from someone who uploaded a photograph of underwear with a hammer. The original tweet read, “Got my Paul Pelosi Halloween costume ready.”
The tweet from the 42-year-old man has sent tongues wagging and people has not held back to call him out for the insensitive posts.
“This is an example of the horror that is Jr. and his whole family,” said one person on Twitter. “An 82 year old husband of the Speaker of the House is recovering in an ICU.”
“The attack on Paul Pelosi was an assassination attempt against our Speaker of the House. It was domestic terrorism,” read one tweet.
“The Donald Trump Jr. tweet mocking it is one of the more despicable things I’ve seen on here.”
“One of the most vile things is people like Donald Trump Jr now mocking 82 year old Paul Pelosi after being beaten with a hammer by a MAGA terrorist.
I’m betting though Bin Laden’s oldest son cheered 9/11 so not really that surprising,” Dean Obeidallah, host of a radio show on SiriusXM, wrote.
On Monday, Trump Jnr. posted another message that referenced the attack on Pelosi. He shared a tweet of someone joking about “open carry” laws for hammers in San Francisco.
“Ban all hamm– Police tape is seen in front of the home of U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosiers…,” Trump wrote in the caption.
