Donald Trump Jr Left Looking Dumb After Twitter ‘Joke’ About Socialism Backfires

J.K. Rowling and John Legend were among those to rinse the son of the POTUS.

Donald Trump Jr. was left looking more than a little stupid after sharing a photo of his daughter on Twitter alongside a “joke” about socialism that backfired spectacularly.

Don Jr. posted a photo of his daughter Chloe, posing alongside a bucket of sweets accumulated from a night of trick-or-treating on Halloween.

“I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism,” he wrote alongside the image.

While there were plenty who obviously saw the “humour” in Don Jr.’s Tweet, plenty more were quick to point out the lesser Trump inherited much of his wealth, as his father did before him.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling led the charge with a pitch perfect response: “Fill her bucket with old candy left by her great-grandfather, then explain that she has more because she’s smarter than all the other kids.”

Other users were quick to note Donald Trump Jr.’s inability to understand the difference between “to” and “too” as well.

Meanwhile musician John Legend, another staunch anti-Trump celebrity, also weighed in, Tweeting “You teach her about nepotism and fraud everyday. I guess it’s good to teach socialism to mix it up.”

And he wasn’t the only one to weigh in…


Don Jr. is one of several members of the Trump clan is currently employed in the Trump Organisation – a company owned and once headed up by his daddy, Donald.

That would be the same Donald Trump who inherited that business, along with millions and millions of dollars from his father, Fred Trump.

While Halloween is traditionally a time to dress up in scary costumes, see friends and eat sweets, it would seem the Trump clan would rather use the occasion to push their own political agendas.

During a recent visit of trick-or-treating children to the White House, Donald Trump took the opportunity to make several barbed comments about the media and his success as President.

The comments were in stark contrast to his predecessor President Barack Obama, who always used the occasion to get into the spirit of things and make sure any kids visiting the White House had a good time.
