Today, it was the Toddler in Chief’s son who was doing the most crazy, wild-eyed, unhinged tweeting. Then again, we can’t really blame him. Not after we read this bombshell report from The New York Times.
Donald Trump Jr. agreed, adding that he would most likely bring along “Paul Manafort (campaign boss)” and “my brother-in-law,” Jared Kushner, now one of the president’s closest White House advisers. On June 9, the Russian lawyer was sitting in the younger Mr. Trump’s office on the 25th floor of Trump Tower, just one level below the office of the future president.
We’d all probably be pretty freaked out if we were in a treasonous trust fund baby’s shoes, wouldn’t we? What we can’t understand, though, is why Don Jr. thought tweeting out the email chain that the Times had, that shows clear and unmistakable collusion — or attempted collusion — between himself and a person connected to the Russian government would absolve him. Instead, it’s igniting a powder keg of speculation and made the story much worse for Daddy Dumbucks.
But that’s Junior. We focus on Senior Moron in this space. So here’s Trump’s dumbest tweet of the day, and the best responses from others we could find.
The Senate Democrats have only confirmed 48 of 197 Presidential Nominees. They can't win so all they do is slow things down & obstruct!

The Democrats don’t control the Senate. And apparently every Republican was in a coma from 2009-2017. I don’t think Democrats really understood how to obstruct until they saw the GOP do it to Obama that entire time. But for now, onto the best responses.
Tony Posnanski was one of the first Twitter users to figure out how to use it troll the president right back. His simple response here tells the truth in a pithy, concise way.
Or you pick horrible people…did that ever cross your mind?

Oh, and then there’s the fact, as Anirvan points out, that for 384 government positions, there has been no nominee. Pesky facts!
But more importantly, there are no nominees for 384 positions. So it's not the Democrats who are delaying, it's the President.

Solid, undeniable truth, in Tweet-form.
It would also have helped if he didn't purge the system of everyone who was hired in the last 8 years. The childish buffoon.

And then we have someone kindly calling the president on clearly trying to distract us from the story about his dumb son.
Over 400 spots w/ no nominee – Trump mismanagement. Sad!

Gotta love a slam on Fox News, Bill O’Reilly, and Trump all at once.

And finally, BURN.
Look, buddy, with Ivanka you should be used to being turned down.
