Don Jr. Makes ‘Hashtag Me Too’ Joke While Talking Guns, Mocking Trans People

March 1, 2019 12:01 p.m.

While sitting on a CPAC panel packed with the president of an evangelical Christian university, a former Fox News host and the founder of a right-wing propaganda website, Donald Trump Jr. decided he was in the right company to make a “hashtag me too” joke.

He wasn’t wrong.

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell and his wife Becki Falwell emphasized that their new granddaughter would be raised as a girl because that’s how “God designed” her after Don Jr. noted that liberals believe we can “identify how we want.”

“We’re raising her as a girl, we’re not letting her have a choice,” Becki Falwell said.

“You don’t have to raise ’em as a girl, she’s got a little baby doll right under her arm every second and my boys always had guns in their hands,” Jerry Falwell added.

“Hashtag me too,” Trump Jr. then quipped, which was met with awkward laughter from the group.
