To read what Donald Trump Jr. tweeted you’d think that he and his father had lost their battle to confirm right-wing Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
After Senator Susan Collins finished her speech on the Senate floor yesterday, announcing her support for Brett Kavanaugh, the president’s namesake son posted the following:
“Trump supporters – The fight isn’t over. You better believe that Democrats are going to do everything in their power to impeach Kavanuagh from the Supreme Court if they take control of Congress in November.
This is war. Time to fight. Vote on Nov 6 to protect the Supreme Court!”
(PLEASE NOTE: The misspelling of the nominee’s name was done by the president’s son!!)
Unsurprisingly, this tweet led to many immediate and incredulous responses from the Twitter Universe. For example:
“The son of the president has just declared war on American citizens. This has to be illegal.
“The son of the president declaring war on the liberal majority of our nation is a nice motivator to go out and vote next month.”
Then there was the discussion of Kavanaugh’s perjury which might come back to haunt him:
“They could only impeach him if he lied to congress. Are you saying he lied to congress?”
“Yep. He lied. Tried to get friends to lie for him, too. Innocent people don’t ask friends to lie to cover up wrongdoings.”
Then there were the many people who rightly perceived that when Democrats take back control of Congress there is a chance this will end up with Don Jr. himself going to prison.
“You’re only saying this because if we win in November your risk of getting thrown in prison rises dramatically.”
Then there were the cynical people who tweeted how ironic it is that a Trump has said in public that he wants a war.
“Finally, a Trump man goes to war.”
Like his father, Donald Trump Jr. talks tough, even though he has never done any fighting and was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He also tries to emulate his father by being belligerent and controversial in his tweets. Every time he does this is a major fail, but that doesn’t stop him.
Don Jr. has now gone on the campaign trail to stump for GOP candidates. It is unlikely that his efforts will pay off in the swing districts that Republicans must win to keep control of the House of Representatives. So he may be right after all. If Democrats control the House they will bring new investigations and hearings into Brett Kavanaugh’s — and possibly the Trump family’s — criminal behavior.
