Donald Trump Jr., aka Not Ivanka, is a lot like his father, meaning that he is an idiot. He’s not your run-of-the-mill idiot who doesn’t know big words; he’s the kind of idiot that would accidentally leave his keys in his car and then dive through the back windshield to retrieve them. But even a man this stupid should know that the time to come for Joy Reid on Twitter is never. He should know that when it comes to political stuff, he’s a few rolls short of a baker’s dozen.
But when has a rich white man ever let that stop him? On Tuesday night, Reid, arguably one of the best to ever do this, was minding her business and tweeting about the State of the Union when Trump Jr., aka Lil Big Fredo, decided that he was going to hop in her mentions.
Reid tweeted that she was on to the president’s racist dog whistle to return America back to “1950s-era nationalism” as President Trump presented Tuesday night. “Church … family … police … military … the national anthem,” Reid tweeted, calling these “terms of the bygone era his supporters are nostalgic for,” Raw Story reports.
And in came the president’s eldest son, who is a few Oreos short of a full row, to try his chances with Reid, and claiming that those values appear to be institutions “the left hates.”
Let’s just say it didn’t end well for Lil Big Fredo as Reid then promptly decided to Twitter-punch Trump Jr.’s face in. Not only did she break down each value with details, but she also blasted Trump Sr. for his inability to uphold any of these ideals.
“Trump is putting on a show,” Reid noted, “allowing his base to reminisce about an Ozzie and Harriet past they don’t even really value anymore,” she said, Raw Story reports. She also noted that when Trump speaks of “family values,” he isn’t talking about immigrant families.
Trump Jr. has not responded, as he has reportedly been working on a 10-piece, large-shape puzzle for the past 15 hours. He knows he should never have tipped into Reid’s mentions, but something tells me that just on white privilege alone, he still hasn’t learned his lesson.
