Don Jr. chides Anheuser-Busch boycotters for ‘shooting first and aiming second’

Donald Trump Jr. is under fire from conservatives after he accused the right of “shooting first and aiming second” and called for an end to the Anheuser-Busch/Bud Light boycott over the beer behemoth’s use of trans TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney as a paid spokesperson.

“So here’s the deal, Anheuser-Busch, totally sh*t the bed with this Dylan Mulvaney thing,” Trump Jr. told viewers of his Rumble podcast, “Triggered” on Thursday. “I’m not, though, for destroying an American and iconic company for something like this.”

As BizPac Review reported, Anheuser-Busch, producer of Bud Light, has been bleeding billions since striking the deal with Mulvaney — a marketing move that, according to Daily Wire sources, “no one at the senior level” of the company knew was happening.

Shares of Anheuser-Busch have tanked, falling nearly 4% since March 31, as outraged conservatives opt for a different, non-woke beverage.

But, according to Trump Jr., Anheuser-Busch deserves a pass for placing a dude in makeup in a bubble bath to flog its oh-so-inclusive beer.

“When I actually look into it, I’m not gonna blame the whole company for the inaction or the stupidity of someone in a marketing campaign that got woke as hell,” he said. “The company itself doesn’t participate in the same leftist nonsense as the other big conglomerates.”

Republicans need to forgive Bud Light for celebrating a man’s “365 Days of Girlhood,” Trump Jr. argues because Anheuser-Busch gave a bit more money to Republicans than they did Democrats during the last election cycle.

“Last cycle their employees and their PAC gave about 60% to Republicans and 40% to Democrats,” he stated. “That’s literally almost unheard of in corporate America, where it’s really easy to go woke, where they do so constantly, where there’s a consequence to actually being a conservative. So 60 / 40 to the conservative side is kind of a big deal.”

Bigger, it seems, than Mulvaney’s insulting embrace of every female stereotype actual women have fought for decades to dismantle.

Bigger than the displacement of biological women by trans women in sports, the indecency of forcing women to accept men into their bathrooms and locker rooms, and a much bigger deal than going along with the absurd notion that human beings can change their genders because they wake up feeling pretty.

This is money we’re talking about, after all.

It’s not like Anheuser-Busch has been lobbying for that “BLM crap.”

“On the lobbying front, we looked into the bills that Anheuser-Busch was working on. You know what they’re focused on, guys? They’ve focused on taxes and trade things that actually impact their business,” the son of the GOP primary frontrunner stated. “They haven’t done any lobbying for, like, the random pet issues of the day and the nonsense and the BLM crap. I didn’t find that. They focused on the things that affect their job.”

He went on to accuse conservatives of “not looking into the details” as he did.

“I think sometimes we do have the tendency of like shooting first and aiming second, not looking into the details… I get that guys. It’s easy. I’ve complained about that on this show before, which is when we do the, ‘Hey, we got you’ and you know — Wuhan lab leak theory, COVID vaccines, whatever, it’s like two years later we’re proven right and we dunk on them online, but they still won,” he said. “This is like the opposite of that. This is one like we’re dunking on them now, but when you actually look into it, they’d be one of the more conservative-leaning companies in America.”

“So they’ve been put on notice,” he continued. “I’m leaving them alone. I think you should probably do the same — if they do it again — they’ve been warned.”

On Twitter, the notion that a bit of money can so easily send Trump’s moral compass spinning is not being well received.

“Sorry. Wrong answer,” wrote one user. “Bad culture doesn’t get a pass because political donation.”

“Really? More concerned about donations than the perversion? The degradation of women?” asked another incredulous user. “You got it wrong on this one Jr.”

“My principles aren’t for sale Don,” stated a third.

And a fourth put it in terms Trump Jr. may just understand.

“Don Jr., Republicans can either have Bud Light’s money or my vote,” the user tweeted. “You decide which one you want.”
