Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Donald Trump Jr. doubled down on his father’s attack on Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman for witnessing against the president. Trump Jr. accused Vindmna of being a “leftist” who Democrats have tried to portray as “beyond reproach.”
“They do the usual thing, they bring in another guy that they believe is beyond reproach. Like they did with Mueller,” Trump Jr. said, referring to former special counsel Robert Mueller, another decorated veteran who served in the Vietnam War.
“It was a joke. So now they’ll do it with this guy. …Now it turns out he’s talking to Ukraine or he wanted to edit [the] transcript,” Trump Jr. continued.
He added later: “You only get total absolution if you are a leftist veteran. Not a veteran, just a leftist. If you’re on their side, you can do no wrong.”
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade cut in, reminding Trump Jr.: “But we don’t know if he’s a leftist.”
“Oh yeah, of course. Sure,” Trump Jr. responded.
