“You were vindicated because they determined you were too stupid to know what’s going on.”
The oldest son of President Donald Trump spent the morning celebrating Attorney General Bob Barr’s determination that he couldn’t find any prosecutable crimes in the Trump White House with a series of tweets, including a celebratory: “TOLD YA!!!”
What Don Trump Jr. failed to mention is that he didn’t come off looking like the sharpest Trump in the family, with the special counsel noting Trump Jr. seemed to be over his head when it came to dealing with the Russians, or anything else election-related for that matter.
According to an unredacted portion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report aimed at Trump Jr. among others: “The Office determined that the government would not be likely to obtain and sustain a conviction for two other reasons: first, the Office did not obtain admissible evidence likely to meet the government’s burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that these individuals acted ‘willfully,’ i.e., with general knowledge of the illegality of their conduct; and, second, the government would likely encounter difficulty in proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the value of the promised information exceeded the threshold for a criminal violation.”
Needless to say, Don Jr’s Twitter celebration brought out the Twitter critics who rained on his parade — as you can see below:

You might wanna keep the braggadicia down there, Jr. I realize you live with many challenges and don’t have the capability to understand big concepts but Mueller concluded you were too dumb to know what you were doing. He didn’t say you didn’t do it. Get well soon.# p #21_46 # ad skipped = true #

Mueller didn’t charge you because he thought you were too fucking stupid to actually commit a crime. He essentially said you were a child. Congrats on being too dumb to prosecute.# p #41_46 # ad skipped = true #

‘Too Many Middle Fingers to Count’: Protestors Greet Trump on His Way to NH Rally With ‘One Fingered Salutes’
President Donald Trump is traveling to New Hampshire Friday evening where he will hold a short rally then head back home to the White House.
As the presidential motorcade made its way to Joint Base Andrews to board Air Force One the White House press pool released some very descriptive details.
Most press poolers try to capture the scene wherever they go, delivering descriptions including information about the weather, sometimes what the president is wearing, if there are supporters or protestors and what they’re doing.
This particular scene apparently offered a large number of details.
“The president’s motorcade moved down Pennsylvania Avenue on a route that took us past throngs of protesters who are presumably here for the events marking the anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington,” the pool report reads.
“Many of the protesters along the avenue greeted the motorcade with raised middle fingers,” it notes.
“There were far too many middle fingers to count. Several of the peope in the crowd opted to raise both of their middle fingers in a double barreled one finger salute,” it continues. “Some of the protesters waved signs. A few that were clearly legible read ‘BLM’ and ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER.’ One man’s sign that was visible from the motorcade said, ‘WHITE SILENCE = BLACK DEATH.'”
Just filed a rather unusual pool report – "One fingered salutes along Pennsylvania Avenue." pic.twitter.com/PvwcjoFGsO

Eric Trump Mocked for Tweeting Image of Ghislaine Maxwell With Clintons — When His Dad Hung Out With Her Repeatedly
On Thursday, following the arrest of former Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell, Eric Trump posted a picture of Maxwell at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.
Birds of a feather… pic.twitter.com/4rBugxJGxc
— Eric Trump (@EricTrump) July 2, 2020
He was immediately deluged in scorn from social media, as commenters reminded him of all the pictures of Maxwell with his own father.
Does the president's son not know that there are photos of Donald Trump with Maxwell?
