Donald Trump Jr. Mocks Media Hypocrisy In Coverage Of Clinton's Remark That Blacks 'All Look Alike'

Like his old man, Donald Trump Jr. is pretty good on Twitter.

And he laid out a brutal burn on Tuesday as he retweeted a Daily Wire story on Hillary Clinton saying blacks "all look alike."

If you missed it, here's what happened. During a question-and-answer session over the weekend, Hillary Clinton was asked her about Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).

"I adore him," Clinton said.

"But what do you think of him saying, ‘Kick them in the shins’?" her host, Recode's Kara Swisher, asked. But that paraphrase wasn't about Booker, but rather Eric Holder, who was attorney general under former president Barack Obama. Earlier this month, Holder said of Republicans, "When they go low, we kick them. That’s what this new Democratic Party is about."

So Clinton corrected Swisher. "Well, that was Eric Holder," she said. "Eric Holder, oh, Eric Holder, sorry," Swisher said. Then Clinton said: "Yeah, I know they all look alike." The audience laughed along with Hillary.

Swisher quickly jumped in. "No, they don’t." Then she praised Hillary for the remark. "Oh, well done," she said as the audience laughed and applauded.

Of course, had a Republican -- or Trump himself -- made the clearly racist quip, the media would have had a field day. Instead, virtually no one in the mainstream media reported the comment.

Enter Donald Trump Jr. Retweeting the original story in the Daily Wire, Trump wrote: "Imagine @realDonaldTrump said the exact same thing in the exact same way. What would the media response be? Hysteria? Outrage? It would likely be beyond all that. Because I’m hearing crickets right now after Hillary said it. Wonder why."

The most hilarious thing is that Clinton had just delivered a haughty speech before she made the highly inappropriate and racist joke.

"What’s often called political correctness is politeness. It’s respecting the diversity that we have in our society," she said. "The Democratic Party is a much more diverse political party, attracting people who are African-American, Latino, LGBT ... And I don’t think it’s politically correct to say, we value that.

"I don’t want to go around insulting people, painting people with a broad brush," she said. "That’s childish."
