Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday posted a quote from Hunter Biden about getting privileges because of his last name in an attempt to mock him, before being mocked himself for having a lack of self-awareness.
The quote from Biden that Trump Jr. tried to mock him for came from an interview the former vice president’s son had with ABC News.
President Donald Trump has tried to cast suspicion on Biden’s son for having been on the board of a Ukrainian company, and a conversation he had with the president about the company suggesting that his authorities look into him is at the center of growing calls for impeachment.
During the interview, he was asked whether he would have been on the board of the company if his last name wasn’t Biden.
“I don’t know, I don’t know, probably not,” he said. “But I don’t think there’s a lot of things that would have happened in my life if my last name wasn’t Biden.”
Following Biden’s interview, Trump Jr. felt the need to chime in on that particular point.
“Dumpster fire at Biden HQ! ‘It is impossible for me to be on any of the boards I just mentioned without saying that I’m the son of the vice president of the US. I don’t think that there’s a lot of things that would have happen in my life that if my name wasn’t Biden’ Hunter Biden,” Trump Jr. tweeted on Tuesday.

Trump Jr.’s tweet was quickly mocked–as he too has benefited from having a famous father.
