Trump Jr’s Attack on Democratic Congresswomen Hilariously Backfires: ‘One of the Greatest Self-Owns of the Year’

After Donald Trump Jr. criticized Democratic congresswomen who wore white at his father’s State of the Union, one journalist took him to task — and utterly humiliated him.

Sharing an Impact-fonted meme, Trump Jr. showed a photo of the many congresswomen in white Wednesday morning that noted that none of them were wearing American flag pins.

“Speaks for itself and no one is at all surprised,” the president’s eldest son tweeted.

As Andrew Kimmel, founder of AuraNexus Media and BuzzFeed News’ former head of live video noted, “wearing a pin doesn’t make you patriotic.”

“The actions you take that push the country forward is what makes you a patriot,” Kimmel added. “Your nepotistic family is taking us backwards and making our enemies stronger.”

“Treason is serious Junior,” he added.

Kimmel then pointed out Trump Jr.’s hypocrisy by sharing a photo of him, his siblings Eric, Tiffany and Ivanka and their respective partners at the SOTU. None of them are wearing an American flag pin either.

“This is so true-to-form,” Kimmel joked. “@DonaldJTrumpJr has one of the greatest self-owns of the year.”
