Yesterday Donald Trump Jr went on a bizarre Twitter rant about how Twitter is now plotting against him by keeping people from seeing his tweets, though the number of likes on his tweet suggested he was simply hallucinating. Now Junior has taken things in an even stranger direction, whining about his lack of Instagram likes while filming himself tucked into bed.
Here’s the disturbing video that Donald Trump Jr posted, as captured by the Recount:

We’re not even sure where to start. Why does Donald Trump Jr now think that Twitter and Instagram are somehow plotting against him? Why does he sound so nasally? And why is he making videos in bed? Junior’s behavior has been getting progressively weirder for months, as his father’s presidency and life have unraveled – but this is weird even for him.
