PoliticsDonald Trump Jr. Just Sent Out the World's Dumbest Tweet Ever
Got a wall close by that you can punch? Good.
Here we have it, everyone: the pièce de résistance of the Donald-Trump-For-President platform, neatly packaged in a single tweet composed of two parts unapologetic bigotry, one part willful ignorance, with the trademark Trumpian dash of second-rate social media content that would make Curt Schilling himself proud.
You ready for this?
You're not ready.
Still, allow Donald Trump Jr. to enlighten your world:
Lord, please let this election be over.
I cannot believe I have to say this, but here goes: Syrian refugees are not pieces of candy. They are people fleeing a horrible civil war, and there are 6.6 million of them. Many of them look like this, or this. They wait 12 to 18 long months for their applications to be processed. Leave it to one of Trump's large adult sons to come up with a harebrained analogy regarding one of the most pressing humanitarian disasters of our time while returning from his late afternoon trip to the fucking vending machine.
This tweet is disgusting, and, as failed legislator Joe Walsh quickly and indignantly pointed out, it's not even original!
At least Walsh knew to capitalize "Skittles," a proper noun. Proofread next time you plagiarize, man.
