Few manage to outmatch President Donald Trump in crassness and tactlessness, but his son Don Jr. definitely gives him a run for his money.
The antagonistic eldest son of Donald Trump continued that pattern when he shockingly used an Instagram story to compare undocumented immigrants to animals in a zoo on the night of his father’s first Oval Office address, which the senior Trump used to vilify ignorance to bolster funding for a wall at the southern border.
While Instagram stories are fleeting, screenshots are forever, and people have a lot to say about this one, and about Trump Jr.’s character as a whole.
Just the first son equating poor brown people and children to animals. I wonder if this is gonna be received with the same outrage the “let’s impeach the mf” remark did.

Not a single one of them has risen to meet the tremendous opportunity they were given as members of the First Family. Not one. Not for a moment.

I thought his answer was going to be "because it gives me an idea what defenseless animal I want to shoot next"

But there was one unifying joke to be made.
