Donald Trump Jr. is being dragged all over the internet after posting a rage-fueled video on social media, appearing to blame “crazy teachers” for the Uvalde massacre, and claiming the mass shooter could have killed 19 children and two faculty members with a “bat.”
In an incredible display of jackassery, Don Jr claimed that assault rifles are being stigmatized when “screwed up people” are the real issue.
“It’s the gun; it’s not the sociopath wielding it,” a red-faced, nearly teary-eyed Trump Jr. shouted. “He wouldn’t have done the exact same thing with a bat, or a bomb, or some sort of improvised device — or a machete?” he added.
The real problem is that people are “screwed up,” and we have “crazy teachers” and “indoctrination programs” in our schools, Don Jr. said.
“That’s what’s going on right now, guys. Enough is enough,” he insisted.
Naturally, social media users had a lot to say in response.
Junior went on a wild rant about Uvalde tonight, saying the AR-15 isn’t the issue because he could’ve done the “exact same thing” with a bat, bomb or machete. He says gun owners are unfairly “stigmatatized,” and the real problem is that “crazy teachers” are indoctrinating kids. pic.twitter.com/2Rmme3510A

Sad. Tragic really. His family has to see him unraveling, and yet, they do nothing. Jr. desperately needs an intervention and follow up treatment. He simply cannot continue with these drug induced, delusional rants much longer. I pity him, I really do.

Setting aside that he’s clearly high as fuck and that he’s an inarticulate fucking moron… you get several glimpses of what is floating around in Twitchy’s subconscious.
There’s a metric fuckton of projection going on here.

Weird. I could have sworn those kids and the teachers were killed by a gun.
Those kids didn’t die from indoctrination. https://t.co/FYi0Tlppjt

How much cocaine did he snort for this video? Like, I have the sound down, and it's clear he's coked up.
