Dr. Rachel McKinnon, a “transgender woman” and competitive cyclist who won the 200-meter gold medal at the Masters Track Cycling World Championships on Sunday, has blamed Donald Trump Jr. for the “transphobic hate and harassment” he’s been receiving online for having stolen the medal from biological women.

In a series of tweets posted after his Sunday victory, he wrote of the “hate against trans women” he’s been experiencing on social media and pinned the “hate” on a tweet thread that Trump Jr., the eldest son of President Donald Trump, had posted Monday morning.

“Oh THIS explains the explosion of hate messages I’m getting!!” he tweeted in a post that linked to Trump Jr.’s thread.

See his complaints below:

As of Wednesday morning, every single one of McKinnon’s tweets boasted a “yuge” negative ratio. And if you scroll through his feed, you’ll see that this trend began long before the president’s son chose to tweet about his cycling.

Ironically, Trump Jr.’s tweets sometimes also boast negative ratios, mainly because they invariably trigger liberal Democrats into throwing a fit and crying over his allegedly “bigoted” rhetoric.

In response to the tweet thread he posted Monday, even his sworn liberal enemies nodded in agreement, with one tweeting, “I’m liberal as they come but I actually kind of agree with this,” and another writing, “We don’t agree on much, but on this, totally agree!!!!”

Look at his tweets below:

As of Wednesday morning, none of the tweets boasted a negative ratio. The replies meanwhile consisted almost entirely of chants of agreements from conservatives AND liberals.

Look:

Who would have ever thought that a man pretending to be a woman athlete to steal awards from actual women athletes would be the catalyst needed to unite conservatives and liberals?

Of the tweets Trump Jr. posted Monday, one linked to a Townhall story that notes that had McKinnon competed against his own type (i.e., men), he wouldn’t have come out on top or even close to the top.

“The world record McKinnon set in the qualifying round [on Sunday] was 11.649 for the female age 35-39 group. In the male 35-39 age group, the top qualifying round time was 10.498,” the piece reads.

“In fact, if McKinnon had competed against these men instead of women, the Canadian’s time would not have even finished in the top 10. McKinnon would have placed 11th, right behind Poland’s Adrian Swiderski, who posted a time of 11.386. This means McKinnon would not have been allowed to compete in the men’s sprint championship.”
