Donald Trump Jr. may be starting to crumble under the pressure of the investigation into his meeting with a Russian lawyer — or he’s just getting fed up with all of Seth Rogen’s DMs and is trying to distract himself. Either way, he’s tweeted and retweeted 36 times in the last 24 hours, and he appears to be going through some sort of breakdown.
Trump Jr. seems to have taken particular issue with the way the media has been talking about the news — originally shared by Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Florida) — that his father told the widow of one of the four Green Berets who died as a result of an ISIS-affiliated attack in Niger earlier this month that her husband “knew what he signed up for.”
He’s been busy retweeting posts from several people who have criticized Rep. Wilson, as well as stories about the widows of the other fallen soldiers who have had more positive things to say about his dad.
Trump Jr. has also randomly been sharing a few stories related to the “scandals” that Hillary and Bill Clinton are allegedly involved in.
Between attacking congresswomen, the “fake news media,” and the Clinton family, the president’s eldest son has also managed to find time to share a couple of tweets promoting his father’s tax reform agenda.
Interspersed with all the above tweets have been stories about the media’s “obsession” with Russia. Of course, Trump Jr. probably hasn’t realized that, by sharing so many posts about the “Russia-obsessed media,” he’s making himself look like the one who is actually obsessed.
The Daily Beast recently called Trump Jr. out for following and retweeting posts from a pro-Trump account that, until it was shut down in August of this year, was run by professional trolls who were paid by the Russian government.
After being caught retweeting messages from a fake account, one would think that Trump Jr. would want to take a break from social media — or at least be more careful about what he shares. Instead, he’s done just the opposite and is tweeting and retweeting at a pace that is surely making his old man proud.
