Having largely abandoned the charade that he spends his days managing the Trump Organization, the newly divorced Donald Trump Jr. has been spending his days on the internet, trying to be “cool” with the “cool” (and I say this in the most generous possible interpretation of the term) conservative kids on the block, Koch-funder astroturf group Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens.
TPUSA’s communication director Owens is now notorious for her bizarre defense of Adolf Hitler and “nationalism,” which came up during yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on the threat of white nationalism, hate crimes, and domestic right-wing terrorism when Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) played her comments into the Congressional record.
Donald Trump Jr. couldn’t help himself and gleefully shared her attempts to defend the appalling declaration that Hitler “just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well,” accusing the Democrats of “manipulating the facts” by, uh, playing a recording of her saying “Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well.”

Newsweek correctly reported on this sequence of events, which prompted yet another tantrum from the President’s son, who pathetically attempted to clout-shame a print magazine for not having as many retweets as he does.
Hey @Newsweek since you want to lie about me for clickbait, your advertisers may want to know how is it possible to average single digit RTs with 3.3m followers? You guys buying followers to pretend you’re still relevant?

It feels appropriate to remind everyone at this point that Donald Trump Jr. is forty-one years old.

This ridiculous beef does shine a light on a very sinister cycle of teasing and denial on the white nationalist-adjacent right-wing. It’s the same pattern we see time and time again; the conservative says blatant white supremacist dog-whistles and then complains about the unfair and lying fake news media when it gets correctly covered as white supremacist propaganda. We cannot allow them to get away with this kind of rhetoric, no matter how insignificant the speaker might be.
