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.
That, despite your father's best efforts, we still live in a republic with checks and balances.— Dave Hogg (@stareagle) July 5, 2017
Don't know those people but most are celebrating what freedoms we have, yet to be destroyed by the corrupt administration— Christine T. (@mambatuley) July 4, 2017
Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara also got in on the fun.
Also we might celebrate the ability of immigrant spelling bee contestants to know that "oppressive" has only one "r." Build a wwallll. https://t.co/zAed69PxYM— Preet Bharara (@PreetBharara) July 5, 2017
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.
1st, we're celebrating the correct spelling of "oppressive," you fucking moron; 2nd, we're celebrating the entire Constitution, not just 2A.— Michael G. (@MichaelGarofola) July 5, 2017
While other people weren’t in the mood to get drawn in.
