Members of the Trump family should think twice before challenging the 2020 Democratic candidates on Twitter. They’re witty, they’re not afraid to speak their minds, and they will tweet back.
Just ask Donald Trump Jr., who recently tried to insult California Senator and Democratic candidate Kamala Harris. On Friday, Trump Jr. tweeted a short clip of Harris laughing at herself while answering questions at a podium and wrote, “Why is @KamalaHarris the only person that laughs at her jokes… always way to [sic] long and way too hard? The most disingenuous person in politics… after Hillary.”
Shortly after Trump Jr. flexed his weak sense of humor, Harris replied with a genuinely funny joke that insulted not only Trump Jr., but his dear old dad as well.
“You wouldn’t know a joke if one raised you,” she wrote.
At the time of writing this article, Trump Jr.’s tweet had around 43,000 likes, and Harris’ tweet — which, remember, was tweeted an hour later — had around 391,000 likes. I’m no expert in Twitter analytics, but I think that means Twitter users liked Kamala’s tweet a whole lot more, right?
Judging from the reactions to the Senator’s burn, my theory checks out.
If Trump Jr. doesn’t have anything nice to tweet perhaps next time he should consider tweeting nothing at all.
