What's especially ironic is he is retweeting Kanye West's surprising tweet today:
And also I'm all the way out the sunken place. And I'm not scared anymore. I'm not scared of the media. I'm not scared of the past and I'm optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
Here's what Trump Jr. tweeted:
Love this!!! 2 years ago who would have thought Kanye and Kim would be public enemy number one of Hollywood/Media for saying it’s ok to think differently and to express yourself as you see fit. https://t.co/nMLccNvF96— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) April 25, 2018
He also retweeted Kim Kardashian West's tweet:
To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this... your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) April 25, 2018
Here's the snarky tweet Trump Jr. posted when retweeting it:
Why ironic? Just to expose his hypocrisy, here's what Trump Jr. tweeted in between those retweets:
The Blue Checkmark “elite” head’s are exploding right now.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) April 26, 2018
For those who don't know, Twitter "verifies" the accounts of people who are political or public figures, people who it's important that users know are who they say they are, and people who contribute in an important way to the national conversation. Those who oppose education, the media, science, etc., sometimes call them the "blue check elite."
Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly worth $300 million. As a child he went to boarding schools, and earned his B.S. at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. He helps run his family's real estate empire, and as a First Son has round-the-clock Secret Service protection. He vacations in Africa and travels the world frequently. He is the very definition of the "elite," and yes, there is a blue check next to his name on Twitter.
And there are blue check marks next to the names Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West – who are also the "elite."
The hypocrisy and the lack of self awareness exhibited by Trump Jr. continues to be amazing.
