The president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., is infamous at this point for both his astounding lack of empathy for the victims of the white supremacy and Western chauvinists and his relentless efforts at establishing himself as an Extremely Online Guy.
Now that he’s gotten divorced and has shed any pretense of actually doing any work at the Trump Organization, he spends most of his time sharing just awful right-wing memes as part of an unending crusade to own the libs — and maybe, just maybe catch some attention from his father on the social media platform of his choice.
As the 91st Academy Awards kicks off to honor excellence in film and the men and women who act in them, Don Jr. went on to Twitter to share a truly disgusting graphic, even by his rock-bottom standards.

The right-wing has been delighted with the recent revelations that Empire actor Jussie Smollett bizarrely faked his own hate crime in a misguided and deeply hurtful attempt to secure himself a bigger paycheck. In their cruel and unfeeling eyes, this is evidence that all hate crimes are politically motivated hoaxes designed to smear the political party that has made blood-and-soil white nationalism and xenophobia its rallying cry.
But it is truly horrifying to see them mock the testimony of Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who courageously and very convincingly told the entire nation about how Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a drunken party in high school, while he squirmed and whined and behaved like a jackass in his rebuttal.
You would have to be a sociopath to hear the pain in her voice and see the quiet resolve in her face, to know that she has been forced to go into hiding due to death threats from Donald Trump’s rabid followers, and to think that she’s “faking it” for some political stunt.
The other man in the picture is just the icing on the cake of revulsion, as the President’s son is openly mocking an elderly veteran who was harassed by a group of awful Catholic kids during the Indigenous People’s March.
Twitter immediately erupted in disgust and hammered him for his heartless tweet:
You are a terrible person, Junior. You can't really think Christine Blasey Ford was an accomplice in a hoax. What did she get out of it other than death threats?

I've honestly never respected another human being less than I respect you.
