A video posted by journalist Ron Filipkowski shows Trump Jr making a strange comment about the kinds of people who aren’t “political junkies” and aren’t attending rallies.

“Because they know that the average person who’s working really hard to put some food on the table to feed their families, they’re not political junkies.
Junior insults the people at the JD Vance rally today: \u201cThe average person who\u2019s working really hard to put some food on the table to feed their families .. they\u2019re not showing up to events like this in the middle of the day .. they have jobs!\u201dpic.twitter.com/Bd9vXVwXh7

It’s not the first time he's been criticised for his comments recently.
The 44-year-old has been criticised online after posting a meme comparing Democrats to OJ Simpson.

While he’s spent most of his time recently regurgitating the usual nonsense about a ‘rigged election’ and hitting out at Joe Biden, he’s attracted backlash over recent social media posts.
