Donald Trump Jr shares edited 'A Bronx Tale' clip that shows POTUS beating up Biden, Obama and Harris in bar
In the doctored clip, the heads of actors were replaced with those of Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Mike Pence, Rudy Giuliani and Chris Christie
Donald Trump has a habit of sharing videos from films and shows where either he or his political opponents or both are edited into. Donald Trump Jr, it would seem, also likes doing this. On Saturday, November 21, the Trump scion took to Instagram to share a clip from the 1993 American crime drama film, ‘A Bronx Tale’ directed by Robert De Niro and starring De Niro, Chazz Palminteri, and Joe Pesci among others.
"Now youse can't leave!! Great remake from A Bronx Tale," wrote Trump Jr., tagging actor Chuck Zito, who had earlier shared the same video on Instagram. Zito had written, “This is the Greatest Video, had to repost. The Greatest thing about this video is I was the assistant stunt coordinator with Doug Coleman on the movie ‘A Bronx Tale’ for this barroom fight scene. Those are all my friends that I got in the movie: Butch Garcia, Steve Bonge, Greg Domey, John Tanuzzo, Sonny Hurst and Steve Kendall who played the main biker ‘Red Beard’. The sad thing, Steve was killed in a motorcycle accident before the movie was released.”
In the doctored clip, the heads of actors were replaced with those of Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Mike Pence, Rudy Giuliani, and Chris Christie. Trump enters a crowded bar and shuts the door. He eyeballs Biden, wearing a vest emblazoned with the word “Satans”. Following the line "they walked into the wrong bar", Pence storms the venue, before a massive fight ensues. Biden hits the floor after being punched by Trump. The clip was originally created by YouTuber SteveClipz, who shared it on their channel on November 13.
The video had 1,091,757 views at the time of writing this. He is, of course, in quarantine right now. Trump Jr, who tested positive for the coronavirus, said he will pass the time in isolation battling with the virus by cleaning his collection of guns. In a video posted to his Instagram account, Trump Jr announced: “Apparently I got the rona,” adding that he had no symptoms of the virus but would stay indoors out of an abundance of caution. He also asked his supporters for their book and Netflix recommendation before adding: “I may have a couple of days of solo time and there’s only so many guns I can clean before that gets bored.”
Trump Jr. is now the fourth member of the Trump family to have been infected with Covid-19. The president, First Lady Melania Trump and their son, Barron, have recovered from the virus, as has Trump Jr’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle. News reports said that Trump Jr has been among 250 guests who attended the White House's indoor election night party on November 3, where almost no attendee was wearing a mask. Other party attendees have since tested positive. This includes Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and White House political affairs director Brian Jack.
Trump Jr had earlier spread misinformation about the coronavirus. In October, he told Fox News that the number of deaths from the pandemic is now "almost nothing” while the US is one of the worst-hit countries with the virus, with around 250,000 dead.
