Donald Trump Jr, who is on the verge of criminal indictment and who is unlikely to get out of prison until he’s old and grey, still seems to think this is all a game. Like a villain who’s permanently high on laughing gas, Junior just can’t seem to treat the news of the day as anything other than a bizarre “us vs them” punchline. Today he reminded us just how much of an oblivious idiot he is.
By now you’ve surely heard that actress Felicity Huffman and several others were arrested for allegedly paying bribes in order to get their kids into prestigious universities. Considering that Donald Trump Jr has spent his entire life having things handed to him that he didn’t deserve by his wealthy criminal father, you’d think he might want to sit this one out. But no, he’s just that stupid.
Donald Trump Jr, who still thinks Palmer Report can’t see his tweets just because he blocked us on Twitter, made a point of quoting old tweets from Huffman and Lori Laughlin in order to rub it in. Nevermind, of course, that he’s the poster child for this kind of thing. Then he added “Is it just me or is everyone in Hollywood strangely silent today? Come on guys you’re always very vocal in forcing your opinions on everyone… What changed?” Wait, what the hell does any of this have to do with Hollywood?
Of course Donald Trump Jr still seems to think that anyone who’s on Team Trump automatically deserves a free pass for anything, and the more egregious the better. After Trump sycophant Tucker Carlson was caught appearing to endorse child rape during an old radio interview, and then refused to apologize for what he claimed were merely “naughty” remarks, Junior tweeted this: “This is how to handle the outrage mob. Remember, even the most sincere apology means nothing to them. They want to break and ruin you. That’s their end goal.” What an idiot.
