Donald Trump Jr. took aim at the corporate media for its purported lack of coverage of leaked text messages that show Hunter Biden using the N-word, Breitbart reported.

"Try to imagine one of the Trump kids dropping the n-word. Real quote from Hunter: 'n***a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates,'" he tweeted on Tuesday.

Trump Jr.'s comment was a response to CNN's Brian Stelter, who previously slammed the businessman for his comment about making liberals cry

Trump Jr. Said Media Coverage Would Be Different For His Family

Speaking to Breitbart News, Trump Jr. claimed that media coverage of him or his family using the N-word would be vastly different than the reporting on Hunter Biden.

"They would lose their damn minds, it would be the number one story on CNN, MSNBC, and the usual outlets for weeks straight,” he said.

“Don Lemon, Yamiche [Alcindor], all of the usual suspects would go nuts, but amazingly they are 100% silent on this."

Hunter Biden used the slur multiple times during conversations with his lawyer, George Mesires.

Eric Trump Also Responded To The Story

Eric Trump also spoke to Breitbart News about the story and its lack of coverage in mainstream media.

"I raised $30 million for children dying of cancer at St. Jude before the age of 30, with the lowest expense ratio of any charity in the country — the media portrays me as a villain," he said.

Eric Trump then took aim at Hunter Biden for using his father's influence for financial gain.

Nevertheless, the businessman claimed that the media ignores Hunter Biden's shortcomings and praises him.

Trump Jr. Took Aim At The Left

According to Trump Jr., the left as a whole is not acting in good faith on the issue of racism.

"The bottom line is the left is not intellectually honest about racism,” he said.

"They use it when they can for political gain, and when it serves no purpose it’s totally ignored. It’s a shame that they take something so serious so lightly and in essence make a mockery of all those afflicted.”

Many on the right, including former Vice President Mike Pence, have claimed that the systemic racism spotlighted by the left is a myth, per The New York Times.

The Tulsa Massacre

The racist text messages surfaced days after the 100th anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa massacre, when White residents murdered 36 Black residents in addition to destroying African American businesses and homes.

Joe Biden marked the anniversary with an emotional speech in which he urged the country to find common ground and work to address systemic racism.

Conservative critics slammed Biden's speech and suggested that he was perpetuating lies about the prevalence of racism in America.

Notably, Project 21 Chairman Horace Cooper compared the speech to Jussie Smollett's alleged race hoax.
