Don Jr. Takes To Twitter, Promotes Tweet That Says Mueller Is “Mentally Retarded”

The good ol' Trump family distraction technique.

The entire Trump family as well as his administration, which — let’s face it — is pretty much one and the same these days, is in an absolute tizzy today in the wake of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony in which he will be explaining his findings outlined in his 448-page Russia report.

And quite frankly, things aren’t looking good for Donald thus far. So Trump spawn Donald Jr. took to his Twitter account to launch the Trump family’s age-old tactic when things start to feel sticky — distraction.

After all, it is what his father does best. Every time he finds himself entangled in yet another scandal, he simply goes on his Twitter account with something even more far-fetched and ridiculous in an attempt to distract the p0ublic from what’s really going on.


And Jr. took a page straight from daddy’s playbook today when he went on an unhinged rant attack the former Special Counsel, ultimately promoting a tweet referring to Mueller as “mentally retarded.”

Conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza sent out a tweet mocking Robert Mueller and his performance at the hearing, musing on whether “Republicans have kidnapped the real Robert Mueller and substituted a mentally retarded look-alike in his place.”

Trump Jr. added his own thoughts to a retweet on D’Souza stating, “Does anyone honestly believe that after 2 years and $50 million Robert Mueller does not know anything about Fusion GPS given that it was the genesis of the entire investigation? Has he not opened a paper, even a leftist one, or watched TV in that time? Tough to believe.”

It’s worth noting now that Mueller and his team strongly considered charging Jr. in regard to his willingness and eagerness to accept Russian dirt on then-candidate Hilary Clinton but ultimately decided against it because they basically determined that Jr. was too damn stupid to understand what he was doing.

But yea, sure. Mueller is the “mentally retarded” one.
