Every now and then, a story is just plain confusing. I thought the Trumps were partisan, divisive, and evil; yet here we are…
In the aftermath of the mosque attacks in New Zealand, Chelsea Clinton was blamed for the atrocity by NYU students.
As covered by RedState’s Jennifer Van Laar, at a New York University vigil for the victims of the Christchurch massacre (see my article on the 50-count mass murder here), Chelsea was accosted and accused of inciting Islamophobia.
The reason? On February 10th, the former first daughter tweeted against anti-Semitism in the wake of Ilhan Omar’s comments about Jews. Among other things, the Minnesota representative had suggested American Jews hold “dual loyalty” (see much more about Omar here, here, and here).
“Co-signed as an American. We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism.”

Fast-forward to Friday night, when some students told Clinton she wasn’t welcomed.
Here is a pregnant Chelsea Clinton being accosted in public by NYU students blaming her for the New Zealand massacre. You are free to have your opinion, but how you express yourself matters. Note how Clinton never shuts down or stops listening, despite not deserving any of this. pic.twitter.com/V6XcC3lWCB

Who would come to Chelsea’s defense? In addition to many others, lo, I give you the son of Satan, Donald Trump Jr.:
“It’s sickening to see people blame @ChelseaClinton for the NZ attacks because she spoke out against anti-Semitism. We should all be condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up. Anyone who doesn’t understand this is part of the problem.”

Good for Don Jr. And for Chelsea.
Despite constant assertions from the Left, many on the Right are motivated by principle, not partisanship. They’re happy to see good triumph over evil, and they’re at the ready to fight for it, regardless of party affiliation (like here).
Nonetheless, we’re sure to see more of this, because dumbness:
Huh?? Did you take your meds this morning?? It seems like Clinton's and Obama's live in your empty head rent free! I can't wait to see you squeal like a pig when you get indicted! pic.twitter.com/xmBjyIU7fj
