Hillary Clinton making people snort with dorky laughter on Twitter is one thing; but Donald Trump Jr. trying to pick a fight with Clinton over her “dad joke” is another thing entirely.
The whole thing starts with the long infamous typo that President Trump tweeted the other night — covfefe. Late one night this week, Trump posted a tweet that read, in full, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe.”
He eventually deleted it, and one of his tweets posted the morning after the “covfefe” gaffe was a jab at Hillary Clinton because of course it was. The Trumps, from Donald to Donald Jr., are seemingly pathologically obsessed with Hillary Clinton, bringing her up time and time again even though the election and any acute relevance of the Clintons to the Trumps ended months ago.
President Trump’s post-covfefe Clinton jabbing tweet reads, “Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC.”
Hillary Clinton responded to this tweet with a covfefe joke, writing,: “People in covfefe houses shouldn’t throw covfefe.”
These sorts of jokes are pretty much what Twitter is made for, and this could have ended there.
Taking after his father, Donald Trump Jr. had other ideas, however.
Trump Jr. decided that it was his place to police Clinton’s jokes, writing in response to Clinton, “What house is he in again??? That’s what I thought. You’re trying too hard.”
