Donald Trump Jr. has come under fire for posting an obscene photo of Volodymyr Zelensky and Nancy Pelosi after the Ukrainian president’s visit to Washington, D.C.
The son of the one-term president mocked the Ukrainian leader, whose father was punished for trying to extort information about Joe Biden, with the fake photo on Instagram.
The sophomore meme featured a woman in only underwear with the head of the house resting on the body next to Mr. Zelensky.
“Look, it wasn’t that bad. Now let’s have $47 billion.” Read the caption.
Mr Trump posted the photo after Zelensky received a standing ovation for his speech to a joint session of Congress earlier this week.
This came after he called the Ukrainian leader “the ungrateful queen of international welfare”.
The letter reiterates opposition from the pro-Russian MAGA wing of the Republican Party, whose members have said the United States should not help Ukraine fight off Vladimir Putin’s invasion of the country.
Far-right Republicans Lauren Boebert and Matt Gaetz declined to run for Zelensky, while Tucker Carlson on Fox News said the wartime leader dressed as a “strip club manager.”
“How disrespectful to any woman even if she’s a meme… no wonder… that’s what I learned at your dad’s house,” one person wrote in the comments on Don’s post.
Another user added, “The meme is totally inappropriate. I usually support Trump, but you went too far this time. Sucks.”
“So you don’t want any support for Ukraine – you get it,” another wrote.
Another commented: “Your love for Putin is clear.”
“It is funny to see your jealousy of the love and adoration that so many people feel for Zelensky. He is a good, brave and good person, and no one would say that about Trump,” wrote another.
