Donald Trump Jr. has been doing a tour recently promoting his book Triggered,” and has appeared on both right and left wing shows because that’s what adults should do when they disagree with people. He went on The View, which is probably the most hostile place he could go, and he argued with them for a while and it was pretty entertaining. Although I side with him in almost every argument, I will say that as a public speaker he needs to learn to shut the fuck up, just a little bit. He doesn’t stop talking, and he’s got no volume control. When he writes and tweets it’s actually really on point, and no one has been better about tech censorship. But he’s not nearly as good as his old man at public speaking yet.
Anyway, for a liberal show like The View to have him on and promote it shows you that their producers understand how ratings work. I’m guessing it was the highest rated show they’ve had in a while, because anything Trump related is cash money.
So when I heard that Kirk Minihane was interviewing him last week I figured Barstool Sports would promote the shit out of it, since Kirk does work for them now. But in the most Huffstool thing they’ve ever done, the editor, Keith Markovich, announced on Twitter that he wouldn’t be posting the interview on Barstoolsports.com.
I mean I’m not allowed to post it on the site, idk how to make that easier for you to understand. Should I put it in Braille? I guess my comment is, I know you weren’t able to get a job here, but I have one and I have a boss.

Because KMarko is a gutless pussy, and like many of the people at Huffstool, he desperately wants be accepted by the hyper woke PC patrol. He told Minihane’s producer Steve Robinson that his reasoning was “I hate that guy,” and Barstool doesn’t get political.
Think of how crazy this is. We’re talking about the son of the President. A guy with 5 million Twitter followers who’s all over the place right now promoting his new book. Like him or not, you’re gonna listen to what he has to say on KMS. An interview on a Barstool show would be a ratings bonanza.
And they’re not airing it because the editor says he doesn’t like him and Barstool doesn’t get political. I guess interviewing Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard doesn’t count as political. It’s not like they’re running for President or anything.

Leftist rags like Deadspin, the Daily Beast, and NBC are constantly criticizing Huffstool for being sexist, racist, alt-right, blah, blah, blah. In reality none of that is true, but they get called it anyway because that’s what woke mobs do nowadays. No one with a brain takes them seriously, and a big part of Huffstool’s brand is fighting back against bullshit like this.
KMarko thinks he can still win these people over by making a business decision that goes against the best interests of the company because “I hate that guy.” Apparently he hasn’t noticed that literally every person who has tried to silence Huffstool, or smear them as something they’re not, is on the left. You’d think he would learn after a while. That’s all this is – Huffstool trying to kiss the woke mob’s ass. There is nothing they fear more than being labeled as a Trump friendly blog, which is why they’ll promote left wing political interviews but not conservatives.
The really fucked up part about this is that Trump Jr. had Barstool’s back in August with the AOC tweet beef. If you recall, Huffstool founder Dave Portnoy tweeted out a joke about his employees unionizing, and some blue checkmark responded by offering legal services to his employees.
If you work for Barstool and want to have a private chat about the unionization process, how little power your boss has to stop you, and how you can leverage that power to make your life better: my DMs are open.

Portnoy runs a comedy site so he responded back with an obvious joke.

But because AOC is a simple minded fucking idiot she took it seriously and threatened to have the federal government use its powers to go after Huffstool.
If you’re a boss tweeting firing threats to employees trying to unionize, you are likely breaking the law &can be sued,in your words, “on the spot.”
ALL workers in the US have the protected freedom to organize for better conditions.

Portnoy challenged her to a debate.

And Donald Trump Jr. had his back.

He literally promoted their brand to his millions of followers. He’s on their side. And now this one, talentless hack isn’t allowing his interview that he did on a Barstool prodcast to be be promoted on Barstool’s website. What a fucking tool.
Imagine hating Barstool with all your being. You think, this time Portnoy’s really fucked up! The AFL-CIO & NLRB are going to destroy him! Then Trump Jr. retweets him, Barstool gets a billion social media impressions, and Dave shits on you on Fox News. ☹️
Sweet dreams @Deadspin!

Keep in mind, KMarko previously allowed former blogger Francis Ellis to publish a blog that got pulled because it suggested that a murdered Utah student was still alive, and bragged about how the dead girl followed Barstool podcasts on IG. Yet he kept his job and the blogger was fired. What do you think is worse for the Huffstool brand – an insensitive blog about a murder victim, or an interview with the President’s son? Because he let one of those go through and not the other.
Finally KMarko capped off his week in self-emasculation by refusing to go on the podcast for a company he works for, and then called them snowflakes not realizing the irony and hypocrisy spewing out of his veins.

You were actually afraid to come on my show today. Literally used that word to Steve. You’re the reason Francis lost his job. You truly suck. And one day you’ll be gone from the company and no one will care. Hopefully that day is soon. https://t.co/ugiK9NODl7

Maybe the Daily Beast won’t see it and right mean things about Huffstool now. Maybe.
