Donald Trump Jr. Attacks Hospitalized Democrat Senator

Former President Donald Trump Jr. recently doubled down of calling Democratic U.S. Senator John Fetterman of Pennsylvania a “vegetable.” It comes after he received massive backlash.



Donald Trump Jr. opens up on the matter

Fetterman was elected to the Senate last year months after suffering a serious stroke that prompted Republican candidate Mehmet Oz and other GOP critics to repeatedly question his health and cognitive abilities. The senator is currently hospitalized while undergoing treatment for severe depression.

It was noted that Trump Jr. was denounced by many after calling Fetterman “the vegetable senator” and suggesting that he lacked “basic cognitive function” on his podcast Triggered last month, just after Fetterman’s team announced he was seeking depression treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The eldest son of former President Donald Trump once again addressed the senator as “a vegetable” while delivering a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland on Friday, while insisting that he had been unfairly criticized as an “ableist” for previously using the inflammatory rhetoric.

“When I said, like, I don’t know, it’s sort of weird that Pennsylvania managed to elect a vegetable, they criticize me as being ableist,” Trump Jr. said.”I didn’t know what that was, but there’s always an ‘ist,’ right? There’s always an ‘ist,’ and it doesn’t matter what you’re talking about. And apparently an ableist is someone who discriminates against those with disabilities.”

Trump Jr. then argued that he was not an ableist, while at the same time suggesting that the senator should be working as a “bag guy” at a grocery store instead of in the Senate.

“I’m not discriminating … I’d love for John Fetterman to have, like, good gainful employment. Maybe he could be, like, a bag guy at, like, a grocery store,” said Trump Jr., sparking laughter from some in the crowd.

“Is it unreasonable for me to expect, as a citizen of the United States of America, to have a United States senator have basic cognitive function?” he added, before saying that a “good point” had been made by a person in the crowd who shouted a suggestion that President Joe Biden also lacked “cognitive function.”
