    Trump Jr. Walks Out Of Event Promoting His Book After He’s Heckled, Booed By Conservatives

    In the age of memes, this could be great strategy for political operatives to mitigate risk of social media abuse:

    Highlights
    'Soundbites' risk averted.
    "Trump Jr. told the audience that taking questions from the floor risked creating soundbites that leftwing social media posters would abuse and distort."

    "Social media posts suggested the protests came from an ultra-conservative, nationalist and isolationist subset of the president’s “America first” supporters."

    Trump Jr. Walks Out Of Event Promoting His Book After He’s Heckled, Booed By Conservative Audience

    BY Chris Walker
    November 11, 2019

    Donald Trump Jr. has been on a media tour promoting his new book, “Triggered,” which has led to many acts of protest against the son of the president.

    Trump Jr. purports in his book that liberals are doing harm to the nation and standing in the way of his father’s vision for the country. But on Sunday, it was a group of conservatives who booed him off the stage, not liberal-leaning anti-Trump protesters, The Independent reported.
    Delivering remarks at UCLA, it was announced prior to the event that time constraints would limit how long Trump Jr. could speak — and not allow for a questions and answers segment after he was finished. This caused attendees to be upset with the format.

    During the event, which was organized by the conservative organization Turning Point USA, Trump Jr. stated that “being able to question things” and to question authority was an important aspect of society. That led to conservatives in the audience to start a chant of “Q and A” that resulted in Trump Jr. and his partner, Kimberly Guilfoyle, to leave.

    Before departing, Guilfoyle had a message for audience members. “You’re not making your parents proud by being rude and disruptive and discourteous,” she said. “I bet you engage and go on online dating because you’re impressing no one here to get a date in person.”

    Independent report cited above is using a slightly different wording:



    Trump Jr booed off stage by supporters of his father amid apparent split in US far right

    Donald Trump Jr was booed off stage and forced to abandon a book tour appearance at the University of California’s Los Angeles campus – due to a protest by supporters of his father.

    t was intended to promote Mr Trump’s book, Triggered, which takes aim at liberal and left-wing politics.
    But Mr Trump’s appearance lasted only about half an hour, with he and partner Kimberly Guilfoyle forced off the stage by the chants from a section of supporters.
    Their chants erupted after Mr Trump said students “being able to question things, to be able to stand up to” authority was important.

    Social media posts suggested the protests came from an ultra-conservative, nationalist and isolationist subset of the president’s “America first” supporters.
    ...
    Another said: “THIS IS A REVOLUTION among the conservative youth in this country ... WE WILL NOT STOP until the sanctioned invasion of our country through mass legal immigration comes to an end”.
    “Congrats, Charlie Kirk. You just made the Groyper Army more powerful than before. All you had to do was just take a few questions...” tweeted a third.

    The groyper meme is a derivative of Pepe the frog, which was adopted by the far-right and particularly by supporters of Donald Trump.

    To be more specific: He walked out of an event promoting his book - in which he says that liberals are easily triggered and too scared to directly confront any issues - after the audience got angry that he refused to do a Q & A.

    Hes growing a beard because men look better with a beard. Men that don't have a beard look weird.

    That whore is sitting up there with somebody else's husband, lecturing people about being rude and discourteous. You can't make this crap up.
