Twitter Is Roasting Donald Trump Jr. Over His Weird Woodsy Photo Shoot For The New York Times

"How is he so bad at sitting?"

I don’t think I’m going out on a limb here when I say Donald Trump Jr. seems like a fairly unpleasant individual. Whether he’s posing next to dead animals or comparing refugees to poisoned skittles, the US President’s oldest son is not an easy man to like – which is probably why social media users have reacted to his recent profile in The New York Times will such glee.

The three-and-a-half thousand word profile paints Trump Jr. as more rugged and outdoorsy than his father or sister Ivanka, waxing poetic about his fondness for firearms and his summers spent “hunting and fishing with his maternal grandfather in the woods of what was then Czechoslovakia.” FORGET HIS FATHER’S BILLIONS, HE’S JUST A REGULAR PERSON JUST LIKE YOU!

But the real gold comes in the form of the following photograph of a flannel-clad Trump Jr. sitting on a tree stump on the family estate in New York, gazing off into the distance as if pondering the mysteries of the universe while at the same time digesting a particularly hearty lunch.

Twitter users was quick to pounce on the image, and let’s just say that this is one of those days when I’m really glad that website exists.
