The stochastic terrorism is relentless:
President Trump’s son Donald Trump. Jr. on Sunday shared a picture of himself on Instagram holding an AR-15 style rifle featuring a magazine with an illustration of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton behind bars.
The rifle is also adorned with the image of a cross symbol used amid the Crusades. The Instagram post featured a variety of pictures of the AR-15 style rifle, which was made by Texas-based Rare Breed Firearms and named the Crusader. It remains unclear if Trump Jr. owns the weapon.
It’s just a joke, you guys:
Andy Surabian, a spokesman for Trump Jr., said symbols “depicting various historical warriors” are common in gun culture. The symbols are common on gear and accessories, but adding them to guns is more niche and expensive. Base AR-15-style rifles can be bought for as little as $500, but the “Crusader” rifle retails for $2,125.
“Don’s instagram post was strictly about him using a famous meme to mock Hillary Clinton, as he and many others have done on numerous occasions and will surely do again in the future, so long as it continues triggering humorless liberals,” Surabian said in a text message.
