Trump Jr. Says You're Probably a 'Weakling' If You Don't Support His Dad

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter late Friday morning to attack those who don't support his father. According to the latest Gallup presidential approval poll, that would be the majority of Americans: 54%. That's actually an improvement from a high of 59% disapproval in January.


The president's eldest son announced that "never Trumpers" are Democrats or weaklings, or "very often" both.

It's one of his typically ill-conceived attacks on the left. But what Trump Jr. – who frequently posts embarrassing tweets – neglected to think about, is that there's also a significant number of Republicans who also don't support President Trump.

Trump Jr.'s tweet references a New York Times story that reveals some liberal donors and operatives are supporting "never Trump" Republicans – and now they're even, disturbingly, funding them.

So, according to Trump Jr., Democrats who fund Republicans are weaklings.

On that, many can agree.
