Donald Trump, Sr. made a name for himself as a reality TV show host and pretend successful businessman who gleefully yelled “you’re fired!” at contestants. His son, Donald Trump, Jr., has made a name for himself as an internet troll. The massive platform he’s been given as the son of the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice has not been used for any meaningful or productive way to help the working-class people the Trumps claim to represent from their gold-plated apartments. Instead, he’s used that platform to attack Joy Behar of The View, a 17-year-old high school shooting survivor, and a lifelong military serviceman who dared report Trump, Sr. for committing crimes.

Now, Junior may actually face consequences for his less-than-truthful attacks on people. Col. Alexander Vindman, who served in the United States military his entire adult life, was fired from his job for speaking out against Trump’s attempts to extort the country of Ukraine by withholding needed congressionally-approved funds by demanding derogatory statements against his political opponent in exchange for the money. Vindman was fired from his position as a national security advisor working in the White House, as was his twin brother.
Trump, Jr., through Vindman’s brave testimony in front of Congress, denigrated him by questioning his loyalty to his country and saying that Vindman was some kind of Ukranian tool planted by Hillary Clinton to take down Trump. None of that was true, of course, and coming from a man who has never served in the military made the lies all that much more ironic. But now, it will be used as proof of Junior’s tendency to slander people online using made up “facts” about them so that he’ll be held accountable for his harmful acts of trolling.
Twitter agreed that it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy. Read some of their comments below:
