As the House Democrats televised the Judicial Committee’s articles of impeachment amendment process, Donald Trump Jr. mimicked his father. He scatter-shot his tweets, but the president’s eldest son’s efforts fell far short of his father’s 100+ tweets as the committee fought on. There is an interesting theme to Trump Jr.’s tweets:
What was most important to the younger Trump was a pinned tweet hawking his book Triggered. He has already tapped the GOP to buy a hundred thousand books, which shot his book up the ratings ladder:
‘Let’s send a loud message to the liberal elites. It would TRIGGER our haters coast to coast if we made the NYT list! This is the book that liberals don’t want you to read or share with others. Get your copy now!
‘Nothing like a fresh cup of liberal tears to start the morning’
The son just bragged about shooting an endangered sheep. Perhaps, he wanted to appear macho. He bragged about his dad’s Space Force:
Then, Don went after the FBI. He explained to his public how he interpreted the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) investigation into the Russian cyberattack on the 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns. He repeated Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz’s finding that the FBI investigation “gets murkier.” The son appeared distracted rather than feeding his father’s defense against becoming the third president to ever be impeached. Thus far, there has been one impeachment every decade.
‘This is the huge distinction that the American public is not being made aware of.’
The distracted eldest son quoted Attorney General Richard Barr’s attack on the media, calling it “bogus” and “irresponsible.” Don Jr. added his footnote, attacking the FBI “Leadership” as “corrupt.” That was a weak show of support for his father:
‘“Our nation was turned on its head for 3 years…based on a completely bogus narrative that was largely fanned and hyped by an irresponsible press.” – AG Barr’
Then, Trump the hunter urged the far-right voters to get into action:
‘If you live in these swing districts and you support @realDonaldTrump it’s time to start making some calls. Enough of the Democrat’s bullshit!’
The eldest of three sons wanted the FBI off of his father’s case. They should have been investigation someone else, he said. Instead, that came across as a fatalistic acceptance of the impeachment:
‘Imagine the crimes the FBI could have prevented or solved with the amount of time & resources their “leadership” spent attacking @realDonaldTrump because they didn’t like him or the results of the 2016 election. Instead of solving crimes it looks like they were committing them!’
Twitter world went off on the president’s eldest son. Take a look at these favorites:

Currently, an average of 48.2 percent of Americans support impeachment, while an average of 43.5 percent of Americans oppose it, according to RealClearPolitics. On top of that — Trump’s allegation that he did nothing wrong is simply not true. Although House Dems don’t venture into direct criminal charge territory because that’s not their role, they allege obstruction of duly proceeding investigations — which is a crime. Bribery, extortion, and covert foreign election assistance are also all crimes — and things of which Donald Trump stands credibly accused.
He’s got nothing. He kept tweeting anyway. This Thursday morning, Trump also complained about TIME magazine naming teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg as their person of the year. He insisted that she should “chill” — which is rich coming from the guy who holds rally after rally packed with ranting and raving about supposed coups, supposed invasions, and the like.
In his apparent ongoing desperate attempts at distraction, he even posted about a Trump-supporting Mixed Martial Arts fighter, writing that Antifa should beware. So in other words, although Antifa does not go look for Trump supporters to affront, and they’re not even any kind of systematically organized organization — the president of the United States is fantasizing about violence against them. Great.
