DONALD Trump Jr defended Tucker Carlson after he blasted "woke generals" and the Pentagon slammed his pregnant soldiers comments.
The former president's 43-year-old son – who recently raged about how "homicidal maniacs and murderers" are getting $1,400 stimulus checks in jail – took to social media on Saturday to support his fellow Republican.
Trump Jr tweeted on Saturday afternoon and asked: "Has a single Republican Senator or member of the House publicly called out DoD for targeting and attacking an American journalist with this outrageous press release?
"If it went the other way there would be outrage from the left!" he added.
His comment comes after Pentagon Press Secretary John F. Kirby praised the United States military for its diversity at a press conference.
According to a Department of Defense news release: "Kirby addressed this because a Fox cable show host used his show to denigrate the contributions of women in the military and to say the Chinese military is catching up to the U.S. military because it does not allow women to serve in the percentage the United States does."
Hours later, Trump Jr tweeted: "The Pentagon doesn’t critique propaganda from hostile foreign powers but they just launched an attack on an American journalist."
His tweet was written in response to comedian Matt Walsh's Twitter post, which reads: "Military leaders stood in front of cameras in uniform and attacked a cable news host for expressing his opinions this week and all of the people who cried about 'fascism' for the last four years cheered the spectacle."
"Worse, they implied that Carlson is not qualified to criticize government policy because he hasn’t worked for the government. The anti-fascist brigade loved that too."
Speaking on his show Friday night, Fox News' Tucker Carlson said: "We were almost rattled. Then we realized if the woke generals treat us like they've treated the Taliban, we'll be fine.
"Twenty years later, the Taliban are still here. Maybe we ought to promise the Pentagon that we'll get rid of traditional gender roles on this show.
"Change the pronouns, defeat the patriarchy, and all that. Then they’d send us millions in unmarked $100 bills as a reward."
Earlier in the week Carlson said: "So we've got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits. Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It's a mockery of the U.S. military.
"While China’s military becomes more masculine as it has assembled the world’s largest navy, our military needs to become, as Joe Biden says, more feminine, whatever feminine means anymore."
"The bottom line is: It's out of control… and the Pentagon's going along with this."
Carlson's statements followed President Biden's International Women's Day remarks – in which he praised women in the military.
Meanwhile,Biden's comments about Americans having a "normal" Fourth of July celebration were also slammed by Carlson.
Carlson blasted the president after his primetime address on Thursday when he said vaccinated people could celebrate July 4 with their families – but urged Americans to remain vigilant about the virus.
"Who are you talking to?" Carlson raged after Biden's speech. "This is a free people, a free country. How dare you tell us who we can spend the Fourth of July with?”
