Donald Trump’s administration and family alike know no bounds to their limits of sharing clickbait and false information via their many social media platforms.
Today, Don Jr. shared a total fluff-piece on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s mother and how she is, allegedly, elated to have lower taxes now that she resides in Florida instead of in New York.

The irony, first off, is this: It is likely that First Lady Melania Trump would not agree with Don Jr.’s sharing of “news” from the United Kingdom’s king of clickbait website, Daily Mail. After all, Mrs. Trump sued the newspaper (and won damages as a result) in 2017 over their fraudulent story about her previous modeling career.
‘”We accept that these allegations about Mrs Trump are not true,” the newspaper said.
A lawyer for Mrs Trump told the London court the allegations “strike at the heart of the claimant’s personal integrity and dignity”.
The allegations made by Daily Mail and Melania’s attorney response were pretty wild. Her lawyer at that time, Charles Harder, had this to say in response to their fluff-piece:
‘These defendants made several statements about Mrs Trump that are 100% false and tremendously damaging to her personal and professional reputation [and] broadcast their lies to millions of people throughout the US and the world – without any justification.
‘Their many lies include, among others, that Mrs Trump supposedly was an ‘escort’ in the 1990s before she met her husband. Defendants’ actions are so egregious, malicious and harmful to Mrs Trump that her damages are estimated at $150Mil.’
When coverage about the Trumps or Donald’s administration isn’t flattering, they hit back using whatever means they can; even going as far as to state that the coverage is “tabloid at best” as Sarah Sanders once said.
But when the headlines help further their agenda or go against their rivals, they support it. Hypocrisy is one of their most-flawless attributes as it knows no limits and luckily, it never fails.
Here are some of the best responses to Don Jr. on Twitter:
