Donald Trump Jr.: Border Wall Is Like A Zoo Fence Protecting You From Dangerous Animals

Donald Trump Jr.: Border Wall Is Like A Zoo Fence Protecting You From Dangerous Animals January 9, 2019

It’s like the KKK, only without the hoods: Echoing the racism and bigotry of his father, Donald Trump Jr. compares immigrants to dangerous animals.

In a deplorable and openly racist post to his Instagram account, Donald Trump Jr., son of President Trump, compared immigrants on the southern border to animals in a zoo. Trump Jr. shared the following on his Instagram account on Tuesday night:

You know why you can enjoy a day at the zoo?

Because walls work.

This is not the first time Trump Jr. has shared openly racist propaganda on social media. Previously the president’s son made headlines after sharing white nationalist propaganda comparing immigrants to a bowl of Skittles in which some of the candies were poison.

As for this most recent episode, in a pathetic attempt at damage control a spokesman for Trump Jr. said that the post comparing immigrants to zoo animals was “strictly about illustrating the danger and violence that comes with unsecured borders,” adding:

Anyone insinuating otherwise is simply attempting to create a phony controversy out of thin air to distract from Don’s point that walls equal safety.

Despite the claim that the outrage over the racist Instagam post was a “phony controversy,” the post has since been deleted and scrubbed from Trump Jr.’s account.

As one might imagine, Trump Jr. was quickly slammed on social media for his overt racism.

Emily Jane Fox of Vanity Fair wrote: “Immigrants as caged animals, from the First Son.”

Seinfeld director Larry Charles tweeted that Trump’s oldest son is “so blinded by his own hubris that he can’t see that once @realDonaldTrump falls, he will be nothing but a convict serving time for treason, in a cage, behind a wall.”

More criticism via Twitter:

Bottom line: Like his father, Donald Trump Jr. is a deplorable and a despicable racist who compares immigrants to dangerous animals in a zoo.
