Donald Trump Jr. made an offhand joke about the Holocaust

Donald Trump Jr. brought up the Holocaust in a radio interview Wednesday morning to illustrate his point about how much harder the media is on Republicans than Democrats. "The media has been her number one surrogate in this," Donald Jr. said of Hillary Clinton during an interview with Chris Stigall on Philadelphia's Talk Radio 1210 WPHT. "Without the media, this wouldn't even be a contest, but the media has built her up. They've let her slide on every indiscrepancy, on every lie, on every DNC game trying to get Bernie Sanders out of this thing. If Republicans were doing that, they'd be warming up the gas chamber right now."

This isn't the first time the Trump family has made comments of this nature, Politico pointed out: In May, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he would "get 'the electric chair' if he had, like former Mexican President Vicente Fox, used the F-word."
