Donald Trump Jr. is trying to put the fire out on the Bud Light outrage after they teamed up with a transgender person — and his rationale is … they actually support the GOP.
The ex-Prez’s oldest son made his pitch on his podcast, ‘Triggered with Donald Trump Jr.,’ where he opened Thursday’s episode with a plea aimed at the MAGA crowd … and, presumably, anyone else who’s vowed to cut Bud Light out of their beer-drinking regimen.

He says he gets the indignation … noting that, in his mind, Anheuser-Busch did indeed screw up by polarizing their key demographic with a stunt like this — but he also says they deserve forgiveness considering some new intel he says he and his team have stumbled upon.
DTJ says Anheuser-Busch has actually donated a ton of money to Republican-led campaigns over the years — including Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s bid to Nancy Pelosi’s job last year.
He also claims that — according to some reporting he says he saw — the whole Dylan Mulvaney move was actually the result of a rogue marketing employee at the company … and that the higher-ups had no idea about it. In fact, Don says Anheuser-Busch is usually not as “woke” as its corporate counterparts — and that they shouldn’t be punished for this.
It’s interesting that he’s going to bat for the beer company, because they’ve actually taken a somewhat significant hit in the wake of all this — reports suggest their market cap has fallen by as much as $5 billion in recent weeks … although it’s hard to say why exactly.
Some think it’s a no-brainer — the Bud Light ban appears to be working, and it’s hurting their bottom line. Because of that, it seems, Don Jr.’s telling folks to stand down and buy again.
Time will tell if people will listen to him or not … they’re pretty fired up about this one.
