Everyone Is Roasting Donald Trump Jr. Over His Very Bad Joke About Socialism
Why does he keep doing this?
If bad tweets were an art form, Donald Trump Jr. would be Vincent van Gogh. Whether he’s likening refugees to poisoned Skittles or posting horrifying pics of his daddy dressed as Superman, you can always rely on Junior to find that sweet spot between offensive, stupid and just plain bizarre.
Case in point: his attempted joke about teaching his daughter about socialism.
I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism. pic.twitter.com/3ie9C0jv2G

Obviously there are a whole lot of things wrong with this situation, number one being: what kind of raging dickhead ropes their kid into an asinine attempt at political memery? Chloe is getting bullied at school, that’s for damn sure.
But as many people on the internet were quick to point out, Trump’s joke also just… don’t make sense.
if you wanted to teach her the socialist joys of sharing with others in your community you could always take her…trick-or-treating https://t.co/JfxvEeL1ki

Others suggested Trump Jr. take this opportunity to teach his daughter about capitalism instead.
Fill her bucket with old candy left by her great-grandfather, then explain that she has more because she’s smarter than all the other kids. https://t.co/0lbhHYyFe4

I’ll take 1/2 my kids candy, store it in a Cyprus tax shelter, then declare bankruptcy to teach her about capitalism https://t.co/7OAOjFYjQx

Take 80% of her candy and give it to the top 1% of trick or treaters. You know like your dads’ tax plan.

While still others just started making fun of him for the giant fucking typo.
It’s also never too early to teach her basic English. Like the difference between to, two and too. https://t.co/dD3wEsynz5

Still, at the end of the day, we all know that Trump Jr. was just having a laff.
Calm down everyone. He’s only joking.
He’d never really teach her that sharing is a good thing. https://t.co/RE6HsgnhCK
