It’s clear that the Trump family has a Twitter problem. Donald Trump Sr.’s Twitter feed is a constant source of whining and misspelled rants about “Crooked Hillary” and whoever he deems the enemy of the day. But if there’s one member of the Trump family who’s truly laughable, it’s Donald Trump Jr. His Twitter feed proves there’s something missing in his head.
On Tuesday, like many politicians, Jr. tweeted that people should go out and vote. The problem, though, is that he gave them the wrong day. He tweeted on Tuesday, Election Day. Sure, Republicans are welcome to vote tomorrow. In fact, they are encouraged (by us) to vote tomorrow, but for now, we laugh.

CNN’s Jake Tapper pointed the error out to Jr. with mixed results:
Think you mean today not tomorrow —

For some, Tapper was being a little too helpful:

shush, don’t tell him

We’re all going to get homework, and it’s Jake’s fault. Narc.
— Mike Bates (@MikeBatesSBN) November 7, 2017
Nope he means tomorrow. Voting is tomorrow

Jake…..I am sure Jr. knows what he is talking about. Maybe it was a secret message to the Russians.

Give him a break. He’s distracted by larger concerns … like prison.

This was Jr.’s second Twitter faux pas in a week. On Halloween, he used his young daughter to make a point against socialism. It went even worse:
I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism. pic.twitter.com/3ie9C0jv2G

Of course, Halloween is all about children begging strangers for handouts. Literal. Handouts. Analogy fail.
Oh good try. She’s knocking on doors getting candy for free from kind hearted strangers. Everything about his tweet is wrong and nasty.

“honey, see this free candy you just got? don’t share it with anyone. that’s how the Trumps operate. we are selfish.”

I gave all my candy to the first 3 kids that came to my door. I’m sure it will trickle down to the rest of the neighborhood

I’ll almost miss Jr.’s gaffe-filled Twitter feed when he goes to prison.
