Donald Trump Jr. Makes Disgusting Comment About John Fetterman To Marjorie Taylor Greene
Donald Trump Jr. echoed ugly right-wing attacks on Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) when he called the lawmaker ― who has an auditory processing disorder after experiencing a stroke last year — the “vegetable senator from Pennsylvania” during an episode of his “Triggered” podcast on Thursday.
Far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) quickly informed Trump Jr. that Fetterman was “back in the hospital by the way,” referencing his checking in this week to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to receive treatment for clinical depression.
“And I wish him well, I don’t mean him any harm,” the Trump scion responded.
“Yeah, no, we do wish him well,” agreed Greene.
But Trump Jr. then railed against people who have accused him of being “ableist” with his criticism of Fetterman, who had a stroke last year.
“It’s the ability to do the job,” Greene said. “We need someone that’s thinking really well.”
