Donald Trump Jr. is two wheels short of a functioning tricycle. He’s two Twix short of a full pack. He’s one shoe short of a pair. The man isn’t just dumb; he’s arguably the dumbest member of a historically dumb family. If you put Little Fingers Sr., Donald Jr., Ivanka (aka Contempo Casuals) and Eric “Vampire Face” Trump in a battle royal in which the dumbest one survives, I’d put money on Donald Trump Jr.


On Tuesday the father of five thought it was a good idea to post a video clip of his two youngest children, 5-year-old Spencer and 3-year-old Chloe, shooting Nerf guns at each other on Instagram.

“Morning nerf gun battle time. Spencer and Chloe really abusing me me this AM … but now it may be time to fight back with tickle time,” Dumb Donald Jr. captioned the photo. And all of this is fine—except his 3-year-old daughter was playing without a shirt.

People immediately began shaming the dumbest of the Trump offspring.

“Chloe needs a shirt on and get rid of the moronic toy,” wrote one commenter, Yahoo! reports.

One scolded, “Put a shirt on Chloe!!!”

“All that money … dress your children,” wrote another.

There are several issues that I have with the video, and the first isn’t that Chloe doesn’t have on a shirt—rather, it’s why her dumbass father thought it was a good idea to post a video of his shirtless daughter on the interwebs. Most politicians go to extraordinary lengths to keep their children out of the public eye, and not only is this jackhole posting his kids (again, no problem), but his son is also fully dressed in said video while his daughter is topless.


I have no problem with Dumb Donald’s daughter being topless in her home, but why does this need to be viewed by his 1.1 million followers? I get that this is a real-life moment that Donnie Dumbass wanted to share, but maybe, in hindsight, you look back at the video as a father and realize that your daughter doesn’t have on a damn shirt and you don’t post it.

Again, I’m not arguing that Chloe can’t be shirtless in her own home; I’m appalled that a dad thinks it’s cool to post images of his shirtless 3-year-old daughter on Instagram. Yes, I’m dad-shaming Donald Trump Jr.—first because fuck that guy, and second, fuck that guy. A father’s job is to protect his children at all costs. I also know that it’s hard for tiny children to keep clothes on. While a father wants to capture every moment, every moment doesn’t have to be shared.


In the words of my mother, who is always perpetually cold and will sit in my house wearing a cardigan in the middle of summer with a broken air conditioner, “Put a shirt on that baby!”

Wit’ yo dumb ass.

Senior Editor @ The Root, boxes outside my weight class, when they go low, you go lower.



Can’t agree with you on this one. NO ONE should care what a 3-year-old girl is wearing any more than they should care what a 3-year-old boy is wearing.

And your saying that it’s ok “in her own home” but not in public is suspect, too. She’s not a sexual object ANYWHERE, so how is her “privacy” and what she does “in her own home” meaningful in any way? She’s barely out of diapers.
