CNN host Brian Stelter on Saturday dedicated an entire segment of his show to talk about Donald Trump Jr.’s CPAC speech where the younger Trump referred to Stelter as a “gender-neutral Mr. Potato Head.”
“If Hasbro really wanted a gender-neutral Mr. Potato Head so badly, they should just slap a picture of CNN’s Brian Stelter on the cover of their next potato,” Trump Jr. said in his Friday CPAC speech.
“On Friday, I was about to go to dinner with my kids when Donald Trump Jr. attacked me in his speech at CPAC, something about me looking like a ‘gender-neutral potato head.’ And then the tweets starting rolling in on my computer, people telling me about Donny Jr. insulting me and I thought of some really cutting responses, some kind of clever ways to reply, some way to go viral,” he explained. “But then I stopped. I didn’t post anything. It was just another distraction.”
According to the CNN host, this was Donald Trump Jr.’s way of baiting him for the “culture war” that, at the end of the day, “doesn’t matter.”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
