Donald Trump Jr. made disparaging remarks about teachers while speaking before his father, President Donald Trump, took the stage at a MAGA rally in El Paso, Texas Monday night. The internet flunked him.
First came the top-notch pandering.
“You know what I love? I love seeing young conservatives cause I know it’s not easy.”
“Keep up that fight. Bring it to your schools. You don’t have to be indoctrinated by these loser teachers that are trying to sell you on socialism from birth. you don’t have to do it!”

Teachers on Twitter dropped the hammer on Junior’s demonization of educators.
Donald Trump Jr. called teachers “losers” today. Must mean we’re doing something right. https://t.co/uRLJHgWFrP

Loser teachers. Nice.
I am a first year teacher. I have to buy my own supplies for my students to even have the basics to learn. I am too busy trying to get them ready for the next grade and worrying about where we are getting our next box of glue to indoctrinate them.

Is this really the fight Junior wants to pick?
@DonaldJTrumpJr – I am one of those “loser teachers” and I will do more good in the next five days in my classroom than you will do in the rest of your sorry life. You are the broken progeny of a failure of a father. Try breaking the cycle and being your own man. #beBetter https://t.co/kf1Jp2GfkY

Hey Jr., I’ve been teaching for 15 years and never once have I witnessed the teaching of socialism! I have however witnessed the teaching of RESPONSIBILITY, EQUALITY, and CIVIC DUTY, as in it’s our right to vote someone in that’s not a complete idiot!!

I’m a teacher who works hard to instill the meaning and purpose of the Constitution. You’re just wrong

Fans of teachers were not happy, either.
So Trump Jr. thinks teachers like me and many others are losers for teaching kids equality.

My daughter is a teacher, my friends are teachers. I support our teachers; who are not into indoctrination, that's a political thing.

My hat is off to all the "Loser" teachers who spend their lives working hard to teach our children to be critical thinkers, to weigh the evidence before them, to recognize that #factsmatter, and to call bullsh!t on the bullsh!tters.#mondaythoughts #TrumpElPaso
