Donald Trump Jr., aka Not-Ivanka, does a pretty good job of being an idiot on his own, so I find it hilarious that President Donald Trump’s administration reportedly helped compose Not-Ivanka’s initial response to allegations that he met with a Kremlin-linked lawyer who he believed had dirt on Hillary Clinton.

And get this: President Vladimir von Dipshit signed off on it.

According to the New York Times, von Dipshit signed off on Not-Ivanka’s statement, which was issued Saturday, while aboard Air Force One.

In the statement, Trump Jr. said: “It was a short introductory meeting. I asked Jared and Paul to stop by. We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago and was since ended by the Russian government, but it was not a campaign issue at the time and there was no follow-up.

“I was asked to attend the meeting by an acquaintance, but was not told the name of the person I would be meeting with beforehand,” he added, The Hill reports.

Not-Ivanka has since gone full Fredo Corleone and implicated himself in several possible crimes by releasing the full email transcripts, under the illusion of transparency, between himself and Rob Goldstone, a music dude who was willing to set up a meeting between Not-Ivanka and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, who reportedly had Kremlin ties.

President Vladimir von Dipshit issued a statement through White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during an off-camera briefing with reporters Tuesday: “My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency.”

He also took to Twitter to applaud his son’s interview with Sean Hannity on Fake News Fox News, which is the equivalent of watching a doggie mom love a puppy who shit all over the house.
