Donald Trump Jr. has done a great job at interfering with U.S. politics when he should be running the family business and staying neutral—as is required by White House rules!
Instead, he’s tweeting about the MOAB bombing and congratulating his father “bombing the sh*t out of ISIS.”
“Bomb the hell out of ISIS: Another promise kept #Moab ? #maga”

The problem is that Trump’s latest ISIS attack, the so called Mother of all Bombs drop, was more like a mic drop than a real ISIS attack strategy. It was a 21,000 non-nuclear bomb that destroyed caves and killed only about 36 ISIS militants.
Most people speculate it was a move of bravado that didn’t really do anything practical, but try to show the world something about America’s great military strength. All it seemed to do was infuriate North Korea and scare the “sh*t” out of decent people everywhere who want to avoid World War III.
Look at how Twitter users responded, and how they fact-checked him into silence.
@DonaldJTrumpJr What happened to your promise to stay out of politics and manage the family business? GRIFTERS GONNA GRIFT.

@DonaldJTrumpJr Making a big hole in the ground, killing 36 people, hardly constitutes bombing the hell out of ISIS.

@DonaldJTrumpJr In short, you and your daddy are both failures billing the Americans out of our tax dollars with golf, FL resorts, ski trips, and NYC living

Look, it’s easy to become emotional and say that we need to destroy ISIS. But such a feat takes planning and strategy, and dropping a bomb recklessly (not to mention the airstrike he conducted without Congress’s approval) doesn’t end wars. It only angers the enemy and creates more conflict.
Trump himself ought to view war as a last resort, not something that makes America look good or look mighty in the eyes of the world.
His children of all people, like Trump Jr., should avoid fanning the flames. Trump Jr. had a golden opportunity to take over Trump’s businesses and distance himself from his father’s dirty dealings, behaving in a neutral and professional capacity.
Yeah right! He’s being just as big an internet troll as his dad. Like father, like son…Did we ever expect Donald Trump to teach his children any kind of compassion or restraint?
Evil is just in the family’s genes!
