In the weeks since he came front and center in his father’s Russia scandal, Donald Trump Jr hasn’t exactly been taking it well. His tweets have grown progressively more defensive, and at times, more bizarre. This time around, Junior is going so far off the deep end on Twitter that it involves the words “pajama boy” and “glee club” among other choice phrases, as he continues to go further off the deep end.
When the media began pushing the notion that Donald Trump might try to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, former US Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub posted a bit of a tongue-in-cheek tweet about how he might respond if it happens: “This weekend I’m stocking up on portable phone chargers, warm clothes, & gear needed for when we take the streets. I’m concerned the assault on the rule of law is coming over the holidays when we’re distracted. It‘ll be a defining moment for the Republic.”
This led a number of Trump’s own people to go off the deep end. For instance, Donald Trump’s social media director Dan Scavino responded with a clown emoji, revealing himself to be every bit as unprofessional and immature as his boss. One of Trump’s lackeys Dan Bongino had a total meltdown: “Funniest tweet I’ve seen all year. Fake Obama administration tough guy is going to ‘take the streets.’ 😂😂 These Liberal pajama boy, safe-spacer, snowflakes couldn’t ‘take’ the local glee club. Embarrassing.” So how did Donald Trump Jr respond to Bongino’s drooling idiocy? By proudly retweeting it.
This comes just two days after alt-whackjob Trump apologist and “pizzgate” conspiracist Mike Cernovich posted an article claiming that pedophilia was “not a crime,” and Donald Trump Jr responded by liking that tweet as well. Unless Junior is too illiterate to even understand what he’s liking and retweeting, he’s now lost what little sense he may have ever had.
