In a viral video that has been shared more than a million times on TikTok and Twitter, a woman named Tracy Boettcher sadly laments the fact that because she’s marrying a man with political views that differ from those of her family, her liberal parents have decided they don’t want anything to do with her wedding. The video attracted so much attention that President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., said this week that if no one else steps up to the plate, he would be happy to walk Boettcher down the aisle.
“My parents hate my fiancé because he’s a conservative and they’re liberal,” Boettcher says in the video. “They refuse to go to our wedding, and they gave me an ultimatum of choosing between him or them. So, I chose myself and I chose what would make me happiest in the long run. And my mother told me I was incapable of being loved or being in a relationship because I was assaulted when I was 17. So, I chose my fiancé, and I will be walking myself down the aisle in December. So, if anyone has a dad that would like to walk me down the aisle, let me know.”
Twitter users immediately responded to the video, though not everyone was buying the story.
“I don’t believe her. No parent would not attend a daughter’s wedding because of political differences. She’s looking for attention,” wrote one skeptic.
Under ordinary circumstances, we would probably agree with this person; certainly, people have lied on the internet for less. And under normal circumstances, it would seem abhorrent and unbelievable that a parent would do this. But these aren’t normal circumstances, and we’ve seen Trump Derangement Syndrome turn everyday liberals into absolute monsters. Hell, forget about politics. We live in a world where clerks and security guards are getting shot for asking people to wear masks. If you can believe THAT, you can believe that a parent would refuse to attend a wedding because they don’t like the groom’s political beliefs.
Don Jr. caught wind of the video after several Twitter users recommended that a member of the Trump family help Boettcher out of her dilemma.
“Really sad and touching at the same time,” he tweeted. “Good for her for standing up to the nonsense. P.S. If she doesn’t find someone better count me in. I’ll walk her down the isle. Lmk.”
That would be a sight for the ages, and possibly the greatest way that Boettcher could get back at her awful parents.
Hopefully, thought, her parents will come around to see how foolish they’re being and all of this will turn out the way it should.
