So, it turns out DJT Jr. has a child. I know, right?! Free country. . . not sure what the mother was thinking, someone for everyone I guess (assuming Jr.’s not rapey like the old man) . . . but anyway, Jr. posted a picture of his little girl. With that photo, the president’s son tells us he’s going to take half of his child’s candy as a lesson to this young person. Why can’t he just take a couple of pieces as part of “checking the candy” like I. . . I mean. . . the rest of the asshole parents? You know, the Mom/Dad tax? but half? to teach a child who’s far too young to grasp economics? Oh, well. His kid, his lesson, but he’s definitely an asshole. And not a very bright one. Someone explain to fucking moron Jr. how socialism actually works, please. His daughter is dressed as a police officer so, theoretically, he might be able to grasp it.
As a wealthy American who doesn’t need more, what Jr.’s actually going to teach her is that he can take whatever he wants for whatever reason. He, a person with no need is taking from an innocent, powerless child who has little and who has no immediate prospects for more; he’s teaching her that Republicans are assholes.
Some of my favorite responses to Jr’s tweet:
There is an important life lesson that a child Chloe’s age can grasp here, but even her father has not learned it, yet. Chloe is at a huge disadvantage just by being born to him in this regard. I hope her mom is a better person than her dad is. Good luck to you little Chloe.
