Donald Trump Jr. thinks liberals shouldn’t be allowed to celebrate the 4th of July

While most people using Twitter yesterday posted photos of fireworks or wished fellow citizens a happy Fourth of July, Donald Trump Jr. used Independence Day as a way to insult liberals.

Trump Jr., who like his father uses Twitter to pontificate and has a history of being caught saying false things on the social media platform, couldn’t seem to comprehend that people with different political opinions than his would have reason to enjoy America’s Independence Day.

“Out of curiosity, what exactly are Big Govt, oppressive [sic] taxation, anti 2A left wing socialists celebrating today?” Trump Jr. tweeted.

As you might expect, people didn’t seem to enjoy his assumption that only supporters of his father, President Donald Trump, could possibly be patriotic. When you ask Twitter such a provoking question, you should expect a swift response—which is exactly what happened.

Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara also got in on the fun.

Some people were celebrating their ability to spell “oppressive,” unlike Trump Jr., and did not miss the irony of him having spelling issues on Twitter, like his father.

While other people weren’t in the mood to get drawn in.
