Donald Trump Jr. is much like his father on Twitter in that he doesn’t choose his targets wisely and seemingly just lashes out randomly. Junior just added further proof that no one ever accused a Trump family member of being smart by lashing out at comedian Kathy Griffin and he even added some fake news to his tweet. Griffin was talking about a ‘double standard’ with a Netflix executive when Don Jr. responded.
“The reason you don’t have a Netflix special isn’t that you’re a woman, it’s because you’re not a good comedian,” Junior tweeted. “It’s really simple.”

Griffin responded, calling him a “traitor and a criminal.”

“Thanks for proving my point. One thing is clear: Now that you don’t have a team of writers writing jokes for you, (since all your shows have been cancelled) you really don’t have much of anything left. SAD!” Junior tweeted.

Griffin, a two-time Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian, does not use writers.
1. Never had/never will have writers.
2. Yes, you and your dad’s tweets last year led to cancellations of my shows. An abuse of power he has not been held accountable for.
3. I’m on show 43 of 52 of my world tour.
Hope everyone will join my list, text KATHY to 345345

Twitter users had a field day.
Don Jr is proof that trickle-down stupidity works.

Junior’s just upset because his daddy’s approval ratings are dropping faster his old man’s pants when Putin wants a booty call.

Kathy earns her $ in an honest way. She’s not out laundering $ for mobsters, drug dealers and sex traffickers like Jr is.

I like how he didn’t even bother to deny he is in fact a criminal and a traitor.

Maybe . . . a son, who is only known to anyone because his father inherited millions from his grandfather, and only gets on TV because of that, is not the best person to mock the achievements of a self-made millionaire in the entertainment industry. Sad, indeed.

He’s trying to do as much tweeting as possible before the indictment drops.

I guess he’s upset because you’re laughing all the way to the bank and he’s crying all the way to his jail cell

Junior is facing potential legal trouble over a meeting he took with a Kremlin-connected lawyer who promised “dirt” on then-Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in June 2016.
