Trump Jr. Is Being Dragged And Tossed Online For Attacking Clinton With Crazy Conspiracy Theory

President Donald Trump Jr. started off 2018 by promoting a conspiracy theory that alleges that the New York Times “colluded” with Hillary Clinton while she was the Secretary of State.

The conspiracy promoted by Trump Jr. alleges that the New York Times “colluded” with Hillary Clinton while she was the Secretary of State.

“The double standard never ends. Every day @realDonaldTrump’s win is that much more impressive when you realize all he was actually up against,” Trump’s eldest son wrote on Twitter Monday.

The tweet linked to an article published on the conservative Daily Wire website, which claimed that an email released by WikiLeaks on Sunday night was “proof” that the New York Times “colluded” with the State Department in 2010.

The email released by WikiLeaks was published by New York Times national security reporter Scott Shane. The email shows that he provided the State Department with information about when the newspaper planned to publish articles about a trove of leaked U.S. diplomatic cables.

WikiLeaks alleged the New York Times was providing Clinton with “up to 9 days in advance to spin the revelations or create diversions.”

Shane, however, dismissed the allegations as “nonsense,” explaining that the newspaper worked with the State Department to protect dissidents from hostile retaliation from foreign governments.

But that didn’t stop Trump Jr. from promoting the conspiracy claim.

Twitter users were not amused and their responses were swift and brutal:

In November 2017, it was revealed that Trump Jr. had exchanged private messages with WikiLeaks on Twitter in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

The messages have been turned over to congressional committees investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
