Donald Trump Jr’s impassioned speech asking voters to re-elect his father as president has been derailed by comments over his glassy-eyed appearance. The president’s eldest son, 42, appeared watery-eyed throughout Monday night’s speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC).
Actress Bette Middler – one of Hollywood’s most vocal Trump critics – was among those who commented on Don Jr’s appearance, tweeting: ‘Donald Trump Jr looks like he’s been crying. Did Kimberly G. yell at him?’
She was referring to Don Jr’s lover Kimberly Guilfoyle, who also hit the headlines with her own impassioned speech on Monday pleading with voters to re-elect her boyfriend’s father.
Journalist Sarah Reese Jones tweeted: ‘Donald Trump Jr poorly delivered a fantasy speech divorced from reality with glassy eyes that was so bad, it was funny.’
And Sharon Pettway wrote: ‘Is Donald Trump jr …ok he looks sick look at those eyes.’ Despite the comments on Don Jr’s appearance, the political heir’s speech was praised by his sister Ivanka, and shared on Twitter by his father, in a clear sign of parental approval.
That speech saw Don Jr confidently attack his dad’s rival Joe Biden, and claim Biden’s Democrat party would spark anarchy in the US.
Don Jr branded his dad’s challenger ‘Beijing Biden’ over ties to China, and also lashed him as ‘the Loch Ness monster of the swamp’ – the term his father has repeatedly used to describe the group of career politicians he claimed mis-run America.
Don Jr, who is his dad’s biggest fundraiser, hailed the strong economy build by his dad, then hit out at the ‘Chinese Communist Party,’ for unleashing coronavirus on the world.
And he also hit out at ongoing protests and riots across the US, saying: ‘People of faith are under attack.
‘You’re not allowed to go to church, but mass chaos in the streets gets a pass. It’s almost like this election is shaping up to be church, work and school versus rioting, looting and vandalism.’
The Republican Party’s virtual convention continues throughout the week, with President Trump set to deliver his keynote speech on Thursday night.
