Donald Trump Jr. inserted himself into New Jersey’s Senate race on Monday, tweeting that a vote against incumbent Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) “seems like a no-brainer.”

“NJ has a clear choice,” the president’s eldest son said on Twitter. “Stick with Menendez who will always be dogged by serious ethics questions, or back GOP challenger, Bob Hugin, a Marine Corps veteran and the former chief of a large and very successful business. Seems like a no-brainer.”

While it’s true that Menendez has been plagued by ethics complaints, Twitter didn’t waste a second calling out Junior on the obvious: if he’s so worried about corruption, he should look at his father and the never-ending swamp circus that is his presidency.

Yeesh.

Others pointed out that Junior’s endorsement of Hugin, a former Marine and pharmaceutical executive at Celgene, represents a tone-deafness to the rising costs of prescription drugs and healthcare that are burdening ordinary Americans.

Hugin, meanwhile, is releasing airing attack ads accusing Menendez of hiring underage prostitutes during a trip he took to the Dominican Republic.
