As he so often does, Donald Trump Jr. felt a need to try and skewer someone with a social media posting, but he only succeeded in owning himself in spectacular fashion.
Even though he, his father, and his two siblings, Eric and Ivanka, are all up to their eyebrows in criminal investigations being conducted in New York regarding the Trump Organization, Junior just couldn’t resist humiliating himself and his entire family when he saw this tweet from Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a man who allegedly enabled students to be raped at Ohio State because he refused to report the abuse:
That led Don Jr. to join the discussion:
Do you suppose Junior is familiar with this bit of Scripture?
That Bible passage is relevant because while they were top White House advisers in the Trump administration, here’s a little rundown of what Jared and Ivanka were doing to enrich themselves:
A new analysis of their financial filings shows the couple disclosed up to $640 million in outside income while working in the White House. At the same time, the couple failed to entirely divest from their businesses. Put together, our analysis suggests that as former President Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law decamped from the White House in January, they left a trail of ethical breaches in their wake.
And just recently, Jared again cashed in on his connections to the failed former president, scoring some sweet financing from the Saudis:
The New York Times reports that Mr. Kushner’s new real estate private equity venture took a $2 billion investment from Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund in 2021. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, known as MBS, reportedly ordered the investment personally, over the objections of the wealth fund’s experts, who saw Mr. Kushner as too inexperienced and his business plan too risky. Other Gulf states had rebuffed Mr. Kushner, for similar reasons. Thus, the Saudi stake represents the vast majority of his firm’s $2.5 billion capital. Mr. Kushner and partners stand to get a $25 million per year management fee, plus a share of any profits, according to the Times.
That led Lev Parnas (remember him?) to crush Don Jr. with a perfectly-worded Twitter retort:
Get yourself some really good balm, Junior. You’re gonna need it for that nasty burn Lev just laid on you.
