I’ve been using Twitter for about 8 years and my opinion about the platform is a net positive, but it sure does have a way of revealing the stupidity in American politics. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a response to a Daily Caller story and got inundated with non sequiturs from some brain dead leftists.

Obviously, people getting emotional about a restaurant franchise because its late founders beliefs about marriage is ridiculous. I can sympathize with Trump Jr’s urge to mock people about this, It seems unprofessional for the President’s son to be behaving like a troll on social media. That sort of thing is better left to his father.

Dude, that’s like totally uncool.
@DonaldJTrumpJr Super cool of you to take some time off from grifting to tweet about them. Thanks for your leadership.

Anti-gun dingbat and Twitter blocking champion of 2016 Shannon Watts had to respond with an utterly unrelated complaint.
No one in the Trump family has addressed school shooting that killed a teacher and student. But they have time to ridicule LGBTQ community. https://t.co/lDfnbCRbDC

@DonaldJTrumpJr Instead of ridiculing the LGBT community, where is your sympathy towards the family killed by a gunman in San Bernardino, CA?

That’s relevant to whether people should be emotionally traumatized by the proximity of a particular brand of fast food. I guess it is if you’re the sort of idiot who puts this in your Twitter bio:
Don’t put me on a list without permission – I will block you.
Perpetrators of some of the more annoying web properties joined the food fight.

@ParkerMolloy a trust fund baby is mocking what the poors find stressful? perfect

See, there’s no positive outcome to any of this, just a spiral of flagrant pleas for attention and failed attempts at delivering a zinger.
Some of the Trump Jr. tweets make me wonder what would have happened if Billy Carter had had Twitter when his brother Jimmy was in the White House.
