Donald Trump Jr. Is The Funniest Trump On Social Media - Beats SNL At Their Own Game

It’s not terribly easy being a Trump these days. Beyond the fame, fortune, and success, there’s the little matter of walking around with a bullseye on your chest that social media commenters, comedians, and political observers have no problem hitting at will. For example, recent episodes of the long-running NBC hit ‘Saturday Night Live’ have resembled a Trump roast-a-thon, and it’s not just President Trump that’s being targeted.

As Independent Journal Review shares, the show debuted its portrayal of Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump this weekend, and the depiction wasn’t too kind. Don Jr. was portrayed as a hard-nosed businessman with an awful hairdo, while Eric was made out to be little more than a child in need of a snack. In fact, the SNL Eric was shown to be munching on Cheerios throughout the skit.

The skit was pretty well-received and generated a few chuckles, and at least one member of the Trump clan took the time to check it out. Whether he saw it live or not is unclear, but Don Jr. clearly saw it, as evidenced by his perfect reply to the show on social media.

“Dear @nbcsnl I stole somebody's snack today (hint it may be Eric). Don't tell him #heshungry #snl #weekendupdate. PS if you ever need a Don Jr fill in I'm available and I do a much better job with the hair than Mikey,” he wrote.

He shared a photo of himself at his desk munching on Cheerios, and his little post proved to be a hit as it was liked and shared in abundance. Perhaps he’s onto something with the whole comedy thing, but it’s unlikely the show will take him up on his offer anytime soon - although it would amount to an epic olive branch if they had him in for a surprise appearance.

In the meantime, perhaps President Trump can take a lesson from his son on social media effectiveness. Sometimes a little self-deprecating humor goes a long way towards getting your point across.
