Donald Trump Jr is such a uniquely and arrogantly stupid presence on the American political stage that when he inevitably goes on trial for the crimes he’s committed, he might actually be able to mount a stupidity defense. This is the clown who created an email trail spelling out the treason he planned to commit. This is the guy who thinks people can’t see what he posts on Twitter if he blocks them. Now he’s gone off the stupidity deep end.
Trump Junior never met a laugh-out-loud phony conspiracy theory he didn’t like, and as he and his father come ever closer to going to prison, he’s resorting to even more comical fiction in his family’s defense. After a deranged Fox News guest tweeted “BREAKING: Some of the 1.7 B cash Obama sent by plan to Iran has been traced to Iran-backed terrorist groups, including Hezbollah,” Trump Junior promptly retweeted it, sarcastically adding “I’m shocked.”
What makes Donald Trump Jr twice as stupid as his brother is that at least Eric Trump seems to understand he’s stupid. It’s why Eric didn’t even bother trying to commit treason during the election; he surely knew he’d screw it up. But Don Jr is a whole different beast. He literally committed treason against the United States, and when it comes down to it, he’ll be begging for anything less than life in prison. Yet he’s now yelling “these people are sick” at the mainstream Americans who have rejected his father’s fake presidency.
But the stupidity of Donald Trump Jr knows no bounds, so naturally, when he saw a comically fake news article titled “Six U.S Agencies Conspired to Illegally Wiretap Trump; British Intel Used as NSA Front to Spy on Campaign,” he promptly retweeted that as well. This assclown can’t even commit treason without screwing it up, and now he seems to know that his days outside a prison cell are numbered. It’s why his tweets are reaching peak Donald Trump Jr.
