Donald Trump Jr. planning pre-election visit to southern Illinois, Bailey not saying yet if he’ll show

Williamson County Republican Central Committee presents Donald Trump Jr.

Sat, Oct 8, 5:30 PM

The Pavilion
1602 Sioux Drive
Marion, IL 62959

Join the Williamson County Republican Central Committee for a black-tie celebration with Donald Trump Jr. The night will include a keynote by Donald Trump Jr., a cocktail hour, dinner, a silent auction, and recognition of elected officials & county chairman.

Donald Trump, Jr. is the eldest son of President Donald J. Trump. He is Executive Vice President at The Trump Organization, where he has overseen major construction projects in New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas and numerous countries internationally. During the 2016 presidential election, he became a sought-after speaker on politics, Republican fundraisers and played a major role in Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. Trump, Jr. is an avid outdoorsman, and when he’s not on the campaign trail, he can be found on streams and in the mountains all over the world. He is also an active and loving father of 5 young children. Donald Jr. holds a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Real Estate from the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania.

I asked Darren Bailey’s campaign last night if the candidate planned to attend the event. “We aren’t confirming events that far out right now,” was the reply.

    JB will probably pay for Junior’s air fair. Junior has all of his dad’s boorishness and none of his gravitas.


  2. - former cubs fan - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:19 am:

    Ha! Trump oversaw the trump hotel in Vegas, which was denied a gaming license, so the gaudy gold stand alone hotel sits and languishes with no casino. what a bunch of grifters.


  3. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:21 am:

    Black tie? Can’t wait to see Bailey in a tuxedo. Future caption contest material.


  4. - Lurker - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:23 am:

    “… and recognition of elected officials & county chairman.“

    Can I be the reporter asking questions? Please, please, PLEASE


  5. - Big Dipper - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:24 am:

    Odd pic. Maybe he was trying for serious but just looks dejected.


  6. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:25 am:

    ===We aren’t confirming events that far out right now,” was the reply.===

    Don Jr. in Marion. That event is definitely going to be far out man.


  7. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:27 am:

    Does the $10,000 ticket include special access to do key bumps with DJT Jr?


  8. - Roadrager - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:30 am:

    Sorry, Darren, it’s a package deal. You take the endorsement from Dad, that means you’re obligated to slum it with Junior for a night.


  9. - H-W - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:33 am:

    =We aren’t confirming events that far out right now=

    A month? You are not sure what you will be doing a month from now? What sort of candidacy are you running?


  10. - MoralMinority - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:36 am:

    ==Can’t wait to see Bailey in a tuxedo. ==As long as Darren can wear his blue jeans and Carhartt vest with the tux he should fit in well. Probably what many of the other attendees will be wearing.


  11. - MoralMinority - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:41 am:

    Darren will probably bring his own supply of Mountain Dew. I don’t expect his church would approve if he indulged in Satan’s brew during the cocktail hour.


  12. - Henry Francis - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:47 am:

    Don Jr. is going to Williamson County? What’s the angle?


  13. - Ducky LaMoore - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 11:57 am:

    “We aren’t confirming events that far out right now,”

    Far out, man. Not a bad idea to avoid people under investigation.


  14. - Northsider - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 12:02 pm:

    Not how I imagine a Trump in Marion, but whatever.


  15. - OneMan - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 12:05 pm:

    Wonder how much that sets you back to have him show up.

    If you want to interact with Jr, you can just get the Cameo anyway likely for less.


  16. - The Way I See It - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 12:14 pm:

    The announcement forgot that Jr is a best selling author …. due to the RNC buying up all of yhe copies of his book that were rotting on the shelves. Grifter


  17. - Amalia - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 12:14 pm:

    lock down the breakables in any room he will enter as that guy is super jittery.


  18. - Steve Rogers - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 12:51 pm:

    Where’s DJTJ going to get his Coke? Marion is a Pepsi town.


  19. - Commissar Gritty - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 1:59 pm:

    “We aren’t confirming events that far out right now” = “We’re holding out to see if his pops gets indicted before or after the midterm.”


  20. - Rudy’s teeth - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 2:19 pm:

    Might be a rush on black dress shoes (with laces) for the event in Marion, Il.


  21. - JS Mill - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 2:27 pm:

    Darren does not like billionaires so of course he will not be going and I am waiting for him to denounce the trump endorsement as well.

    That is unless trump really isn’t a billionaire or bailey is a hypocrite.


  22. - Candy Dogood - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 3:01 pm:

    Does anyone know if Southern Illinois black tie is different from black tie?


  23. - H-W - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 3:48 pm:

    If not Bailey, what about Miller?


  24. - Silence Do Good - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 4:24 pm:

    Mosey Green with bibs and of course the clip on bow tie.


  25. - Anonymous - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 5:51 pm:

    “Can’t wait to see Bailey in a tuxedo”

    Probably a tee shirt printed to look like a tuxedo worn with his suit coat and jeans.


  26. - Huh? - Thursday, Sep 8, 22 @ 5:54 pm:

    “Don Jr. in Marion.”

    Wearing stainless steel bracelets for a long stint at the Federal school for boys?

    Count the silverware after he leaves or maybe frisk him before he leaves the room.
