Donald Trump Jr has hit out at cable news networks and individual journalists, accusing them of turning a blind eye to the explosive story of Hunter Biden’s repeated use of the n-word in texts addressed to his white lawyer.
DailyMail.com exclusively obtained the exchanges between President Joe Biden’s son and his $845-year-old attorney, whom he jokingly referred to as ‘n***a.’
‘Wonder if Don Lemon is going to cover this tonight???’ Don Jr tweeted as news of the bombshell expose began spreading on social media.
Lemon, a veteran CNN host, has been openly critical of Donald Trump and his family, and repeatedly clashed with the former president on Twitter during his time in office over the latter’s racially charged remarks.
Donald Trump Jr on Twitter hit out at media outlets for failing to cover the Hunter Biden n-word texts, accusing them of hypocrisy
DailyMail.com on Tuesday exclusively published text message exchanges between Hunter Biden and his attorney, in which the president’s son used the word ‘n***a’
The texts came from Hunter’s laptop that was abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop
In another barbed missive: the ex-president’s son mused: ‘try to imagine one of the Trump kids dropping the n-word.’
Don Jr also has retweeted multiple tweets from some leading right-wing figures, among them Trump’s former aide Stephen Miller, who wrote sarcastically: ‘Quietly picturing to myself Yamiche Alcindor in the Trump press briefing room the day after a story like this drops on Don Jr.’
‘Me too,’ Don Jr responded.
Alcindor is the White House correspondent for the PBS NewsHour who covered the Trump Administration and was repeatedly insulted by the former president during press briefings.
Hunter, 51, repeatedly used a variation on the n-word in his foul-mouthed written exchanges with corporate attorney George Mesiers, who is white. In January 2019 he wrote: ‘I only love you because you’re black’ and ‘tru dat n***a.’

In another text a month earlier he wrote to the Chicago lawyer saying: ‘how much money do I owe you. Becaause (sic) n***a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates.’
Mesires replied: ‘That made me snarf my coffee.’
Hunter added: ‘That’s what im saying ni…’, cutting off the racial slur mid-word, then texted a picture to Mesires.
The text messages were recovered by DailyMail.com from Hunter’s infamous laptop that he abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop.
Neither Hunter nor Mesires responded to DailyMail.com’s request for comment on the exchanges.
In an interview with the conservative news site Breibart News, Don Jr doubled down on his accusations of bias directed at CNN and MSNBC, arguing that if he or brother Eric were caught using similar racially charged language, those outlets would ‘lose their damn minds’ and spend weeks covering the story.

‘Don Lemon, Yamiche [Alcindor], all of the usual suspects would go nuts, but amazingly they are 100% silent on this,’ Don Jr lamented.
‘The bottom line is the left is not intellectually honest about racism,’ he continued. ‘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.’
Meanwhile, Eric Trump complained that despite his $30million fundraising efforts benefiting pediatric cancer patients at St Jude’s Children’s Hospital, he has been portrayed as a ‘villain’ in the media.
‘Hunter Biden smokes crack, uses horrible racist rhetoric, and sells his father’s influence around the world to enrich himself, yet he is praised by the media while writing books titled Beautiful Things,’ the younger Trump told Breibart. ‘Give me a break.’

Hunter’s recently published autobiography documents his yearslong battle with drug and alcohol addiction.
Trump supporters on Twitter also took aim at media outlets for their apparent reluctance to cover the Hunter Biden story, with Richard Grenell, former acting director of the US National Intelligence insinuating that CNN’s Don Lemon has been ‘instructed by the ruling party to ignore it.’
Rep Vernon Jones, a Republican from Georgia, tweeted: ‘If Hunter Biden was @DonaldJTrumpJr, we’d been enduring wall-to-wall coverage on every major media outlet on why the First Son finds it appropriate to so flippantly use the N word.’
Katrina Pierson, former spokesperson for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, wrote: ‘If @DonaldJTrumpJr had just ONE text like this, the media mob would be enraged!!! Where is the #cancelculture #RacistHunter.’
