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.

A Trump commenting on ethics! Oh my that’s too much!

Ethics? No Trump has any right to posture about ethics or morality.

Stupid. You're just like your father. Gaslighting. Spreading fear and hatred. And btw, don't you have a fraud, sorry, "business" to run?

We do have a clear choice. We'll choose anyone but a Trumpster.

I can’t believe u said ethics when ur family had 10 000 children in detention center it’s just unethical comment in itself

You have to stop using words you don’t understand, like “ethics” or “successful” or “business.”

Oh please do opine about “ethics questions.” It occurs to me how profoundly un-selfactualized you are.

My goodness thought for a second he was talking about his father in the beginning!!!

It does seem like it should be a no-brainer. Too bad the GOP is so morally and ethically bankrupt that Menendez is the lesser evil.

🔴⚡️🔴⚡️the former chief of a large and very successful business. Seems like a no brainer.
The no brainer is to stay as far away as possible if trump endorsed him. Thank you.

You seem like a no brainer. Hmmmm… Easy decision, pick the opposite of whoever or whatever a Trump recommends. pic.twitter.com/pf4TnNK7By

From the fucking asshole who cheated on his wife, with 5 kids, has a new broad who looks like his step-mommy so I guess he really wants to screw @FLOTUS and more than likely be in prison in 2020 rather than stump for #Daddy.

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.
go ahead and push your Big Pharma guy Hugin at a time when healthcare is a major issue for most voters, and for as awful as Menendez is, when you watch him win anyway, you'll see just how toxic your daddy and his agenda are to the electorate.

Except Hugin ran a drug pricing gouging drug company.

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