At this point, I have no idea if Donald Trump is going to win in November. Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight is still giving Hillary Clinton a 61% chance of beating him, but let’s be honest, that’s just over a 50/50 chance at this point. One thing I know for certain is that regardless of who wins Trump, his family, and a massive swath of his supporters have been confirmed as what I can really only call “garden variety white supremacist fuck bags.”
They joke about it online, especially on Twitter. They mock Hillary for pointing out they’ve co-opted Pepe the Frog’s meme-tacular face to tern him into a symbol of their racism, even though it’s clear as day to everyone paying attention they’ve done so. But after hearing Donnie Trump, Jr. make a hacky, unfunny joke about the Holocaust, I think it’s pretty clear just what it is this election has become about.
Here’s the audio of Junior Fuckstick making his tremendously funny joke about the country “warming up the gas chambers” if his father behaved like Hillary Clinton has:
Just in case you missed it, or can’t listen to clips while you work, here’s a transcript of the “joke” from The Huffington Post:
“The media has been her number one surrogate in this. Without the media, this wouldn’t even be a contest, but the media has built her up,” Trump Jr said. “They’ve let her slide on every indiscrepancy (sic), on every lie, on every DNC game trying to get Bernie Sanders out of this thing. If Republicans were doing that, they’d be warming up the gas chamber right now.” (source)
The “joke” isn’t really so much proof that Dumbfuck Jr. is a Nazi, but it is another piece of evidence in the case that he and his father are at the very least insensitive, possibly antisemitic, but undoubtedly hinging much of their campaign on playing to people who are. At the worst, the joke does in fact show Dipshit The Second’s innate white supremacy.
Don’t forget, this is the idiot who gleefully posts pictures to his Instagram feed full of dog whistle white nationalist shit you probably only think you’d find coming from a Twitter account with an anime profile picture and a handle referencing cucks or “deplorable.” You know, like this:

A friend sent me this. Apparently I made the cut as one of the Deplorables😂😂😂 All kidding aside I am honored to be grouped with the hard working men and women of this great nation that have supported @realdonaldtrump and know that he can fix the mess created by politicians in Washington. He's fighting for you and won't ever quit. Thanks for your trust! #trump2016 #maga #makeamericagreatagain #basketofdeplorables
Then again, maybe I’m reading too much into this. Maybe Daddy and Junior Trump aren’t racist, and don’t keep with racists. It’s not like one of his advisers and loudest supporters has a history of racist tweets that got him permanently booted from CNN, right?
And it’s not like Donald Jr. ever retweeted the American Nazi’s leading academic scholar, right?
Donald Trump Jr. retweeted Kevin MacDonald, a retired psychology professor that the Southern Poverty Law Center has called “the neo-Nazi movement’s favorite academic.” On Monday evening, MacDonald retweeted a post from Megyn Kelly, who was quoting political pundit and attorney David Wohl on Hillary Clinton’s alleged use of the State Department as a “business partner” with the State Department.
Well, okay, but…
Shit. The evidence is kinda insurmountable at this point. So yeah. Racist as fuck, is the judgment I’m going with.
In the interest of fairness, however, I need to disclose that Fuckface Von Clownstick (h/t John Stewart) Jr. did try to spin his joke away from the Nazi angle. According to NBC, he meant it as a joke about the gas chambers we execute criminals in as part of the death penalty.
Trump Jr. tells @KatyTurNBC that his "gas chamber" comment is referencing corporal punishment, not in any way anti-Semitic.

Because everyone knows if a Nazi gas chamber joke is funny, a joke about American voters wanting to execute a presidential candidate is the height of hilarity. I’m positive that the families of those who have been wrongfully executed would find it hilarious. So let’s just give the Aryan douche bag the benefit of the doubt, forget ALL THE OTHER TIMES he’s tweeted or posted racist shit, and go on with our lives as if he’s just a rich, entitled, spoiled, arrogant, out of touch shit sack, and not a rich, entitled, spoiled, arrogant, out of touch RACIST shit sack.
…or let’s not.
