Jeffrey Toobin Ridicules Donald Trump Jr. ‘Poor Plight of White Men’ Concern: ‘Such Garbage’
A significant subtext of the confirmation process for embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh put forth by Republicans eager to see him on the highest court is how he has become something of an avatar of how white men are being victimized and besieged by the MeToo movement.
This was how CNN’s John Berman set up a clip of Donald Trump Jr. that demonstrated his point. The firstborn male child of the sitting president was asked if the current political environment caused more concerns for his sons or daughters.
Trump Jr replied, “Right now I would say, my sons. When the other sides weaponizes against men 40 years later we can bring it up and you did something in high school that no one remembers, and it should disqualify you from ever doing anything ever again, it diminishes the real claims.”
Enter Toobin, who straight mocked the Trump scion ” Every night I cry myself to sleep over the fate of white men in America. White men have no power, white men — I mean, it’s such garbage.”
He went on to note with incredulity that “if you sexually assault someone in high school your life should be ruined. Your life should be pursued,” adding “All this whining about the poor plight of white men is ridiculous.”
Good stuff Toobs!
