Donald Trump Junior spoke up in defense of Chelsea Clinton following a confrontation in which the former first daughter was blamed for the New Zealand shooting.
This Saturday, the eldest son of President Trump tweeted, “It’s sickening to see people blame @ChelseaClinton for the NZ attacks because she spoke out against anti-Semitism,”
“We should all be condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up. Anyone who doesn’t understand this is part of the problem.” he added.
On Friday, while speaking at a vigil held for the victims of the massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, Chelsea Clinton was lectured by New York University students about her previous remarks condemning anti-Semitic comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar.
“I am so sorry you feel that way. It certainly was never my intention. I do believe words matter,” the pregnant daughter of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to the angry students cluelessly holding her accountable for the terrible tragedy.
Chelsea Clinton tweeted her “heartbroken” response to the massacre on Friday.
“Chelsea should be praised for speaking up,” Trump Junior tweeted, defending Chelsea Clinton’s condemnation of the remarks by Omar. “Anyone who doesn’t understand this is part of the problem.”
Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar came under fire for her comments about the “dual loyalty” of congressional members on Israel, with her remarks on the Israel-Palestine conflict and on Israel itself drawing backlash from many conservatives and also many top-ranking Democrats as well as her colleagues on the Foreign Affairs Committee.
The confrontation of Chelsea Clinton and her handling of the incident that quiclky went viral and prompted an outpouring support for 39-year-old, soon-to-be mother of three.
Many conservatives also joined Trump Junior in their support of Chelsea Clinton and criticism of the students.
Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens, who faced her own social media firestorm when the left bought into the New Zealand shooter’s ploy to blame her for the tragedy, made a few comments on Chelsea Clinton’s experience.
Greg Gutfeld from Fox News caught the underlying irony in the defense of Clinton by conservatives on Twitter.
