Don Jr: My Daddy Could Have Stopped Putin But Voters Didn’t Like His ‘Mean Tweets’

It’s been less than 24 hours since Russia invaded Ukraine, but we’re already being bombarded with revisionist history from right-wing media outlets and bald-faced lies from congressional Republicans such as Rep. Elise Stefanink of New York, who issued a statement that reads in part:

“After just one year of a weak, feckless, and unfit President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief, the world is less safe. Rather than peace through strength, we are witnessing Joe Biden’s foreign policy of war through weakness. For the past year, our adversaries around the world have been assessing and measuring Joe Biden’s leadership on the world stage, and he has abysmally failed on every metric.”

To hear many conservatives/Trump groupies tell it, the failed, one-term former president kept Putin in line and the Russian despot would never have dared to invade a neighbor if Donnie was still in office. Of course, what they fail to mention is that Putin didn’t want to embarrass his key American asset, so of course he wasn’t going to invade another nation.

After all, this is the same Donald Trump who was asked by disgraced former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly in 2017 if he thought Putin was a killer:

“I do respect him. Well, I respect a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean I’ll get along with them,” Trump told O’Reilly.

O’Reilly pressed on, declaring to the president that “Putin is a killer.”

Unfazed, Trump didn’t back away, but rather compared Putin’s reputation for extrajudicial killings with the United States’.

“There are a lot of killers. We have a lot of killers,” Trump said. “Well, you think our country is so innocent?”

But perhaps the most blatantly snide and untimely attempt to put a rosy patina on the nightmare that was the Trump administration comes from none other than Donald Trump Jr., who never passes on an opportunity to curry favor with his old man because his father is the only person in the United States who would hire him.

According to Junior, his daddy would have made bad man Putin stay in his box, but American voters were too offended by all the mean tweets:

Don Jr. was hit with well-deserved anger and mockery from social media:

The best thing about Junior’s stupid tweet is that it proves he’s definitely the dumbest of the Trump spawn.
