Donald Trump Jr. is stepping up to the plate for Tracy Boettcher.
Boettcher’s parents have allegedly snubbed her for planning to marry (horror of horrors!) a conservative.
You see, they are compassionate, tolerant, enlightened liberals. They can’t abide anyone of differing views.
I would be concerned if my child was marrying someone who had a vastly different ideology than them, but that is only because I would worry about future conflict. I would worry about how differing values would affect raising a family and doing life together.
However, it really doesn’t matter if my child’s spouse has different politics than me.
Really sad and touching at the same time. 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. https://t.co/9IGbrZvxl8

The Washington Times reported on the alleged shunning.
A viral TikTok video attributed to Tracy Boettcher caught the eye of President Trump’s son Tuesday evening, and he immediately offered his assistance.
At issue is the conservative politics of the Texan’s future husband; her parents have allegedly said they want nothing to do with a wedding with an ideological outsider.
“My parents hate my fiance because he’s a conservative and they’re liberal,” the woman says in a video seen more than 800,000 times on Twitter. “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 fiance, 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.”
These parents sound like real gems. Aside from the ideological ridiculousness, they apparently told their daughter she is not capable of being loved! This is just emotionally abusive.
Most parents would move heaven and earth before allowing anything to cause them to miss their child’s wedding.
I tell you what, I also feel bad for this woman’s fiance. This guy is going to have real monster-in-laws.
Trump Jr. is a stand-up dude. I hope Boettcher’s parents get their head on straight and wake up to see the error of their ways. If not, it will be awesome to see Trump Jr. make good on his offer.
Good on you girl for standing up for yourself and your happiness!
