Donald Trump Jr Responds To GQ’s ‘Astonishingly Inappropriate’ Question About Melania

For a cover story published Thursday titled “The Real Story of Donald Trump Jr,” which features an image of Donald Trump trapped inside his father’s overlarge head (see below), GQ magazine stooped to a new low.

In an email obtained by Breitbart News, Matthew Boyle reports, GQ asked Trump’s son if he ever wanted to have sex with his stepmother, Melania:

The reporter writing the GQ story, Julia Ioffe, was fired a little over a year ago from Politico for making similarly prurient accusations against the first family, suggesting that President Trump was having sex with his daughter Ivanka Trump. After being fired from Politico, Ioffe joined The Atlantic‘s staff and she also writes for other publications–including this piece for GQ magazine.

The wild story begins a couple weeks ago, when GQ researcher Andrew Fedorov—on behalf of Ioffe, for a story published this Thursday—emailed a series of fact-checking questions to the Trump Organization’s official press request email address. The email, obtained by Breitbart News, included questions about the president’s son’s well-known love for fishing and angling, as well as various other basic, non-controversial questions.

But then came this bombshell: “Was there ever a time when Donald Trump Jr. felt any oedipal impulses?”

Clearly, GQ and The Atlantic have a real gem in Ioffe, who was fired by Politico in December 2016 for another inflammatory incestuous claim: “Either Trump is f***ing his daughter or he’s shirking nepotism laws. Which is worse?” But what is most surprising about the story is just how unsurprising it is. Would GQ have ever dreamed of asking an incestuous question of a member of Barack Obama’s family? But for Trump, no blow is too low.

A representative of Donald Trump, Jr., former White House official Andy Surabian, issued a response to GQ’s “astonishingly inappropriate” line of questions.

“We are disappointed by the astonishingly inappropriate questions posed to Don, Jr., for this piece,” Surabian told Breitbart. “We’re hopeful that in the future GQ will have the common decency to refrain from asking people about bizarre and disgusting conspiracy theories that have no basis in reality.”

Here’s a taste of the overtly disparaging “Real Story of Donald Trump Jr” by incest-obsessed Ioffe:

Fraught though their relationship has sometimes been—at one point Junior refused to speak to his father for a year—Don has lately found improbable purpose and renown as a savage defender of his father. His once private desires to win his father’s approval now come packaged as angry tweets and memes tearing down his dad’s opponents as illogical, histrionic socialists. At age 40, he has become like every other angry white man raging on the Internet, exorcising his psychic traumas through ghastly rhetoric and febrile conspiracy theories, like when he retweeted Roseanne Barr’s false claim that George Soros, a Holocaust survivor, was actually a Nazi collaborator.
