On Tuesday U.S. time, Iran launched retaliation against the United States following the Trump administration’s abrupt assassination of top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. In response, Iran fired a barrage of missiles targeting at least two U.S. bases in Iraq. On the morning after the incident, Donald Trump Jr. — who supposedly has a family business to run — took to Twitter to pompously belittle those concerned about the situation. Even in a time of grave national emergency in which American lives are in danger, the Trumpian ego remains high on the agenda for the president’s family.

Trump Jr. complained about MSNBC’s decision to air an Iranian propaganda claim that their attack had killed 30 U.S. soldiers. Although there were no American casualties, at the time, it was unclear whether or not that was true, which then-host Chris Hayes made abundantly and explicitly clear. What does Trump Jr. want them to do — ignore the news if it suggests a calamity that could be tied to his dad? The danger was real!

Trump Jr. whined in response to a clip:

‘They sound like they were actually hoping for that outcome. I guess they too were really upset about their loss this weekend too.’

Obviously, MSNBC was not hoping for U.S. soldiers to lose their lives to an Iranian attack. Trump Jr.’s claim to the contrary is just outlandish rhetoric. Like many, many other Americans and even interests around the world, MSNBC was simply taking the situation gravely seriously — which couldn’t be said of the president himself, who glibly and ignorantly tweeted that “all is well!” after the attack.

Trump Jr. continued, referring to the press:

‘Enemy of the people.’

The real “enemy of the people” is likely the one who puts American lives in harm’s way just to prove a point. That’s President Donald Trump.

This Wednesday morning on Twitter, Trump Jr. also tweeted a couple of conservative propaganda links and retweeted something mocking the Iranian strikes as supposedly without teeth. Meanwhile, down in the real world, Iranian Foreign Minister Javed Zarif claimed after the Tuesday night attacks that his country “does not seek escalation or war” but “will defend ourselves against any aggression.” The next move falls to Trump, who seems to be dismissing the situation without further retaliation.
