Donald Trump Jr compares his dad’s acquittal to OJ Simpson’s — and misses the irony completely

The opening lede to a recent New York Daily News article says it all: “Donald Trump Jr. seems to think his dad is innocent — just like O.J.”

In a post to his Instagram account this Thursday, Donald Trump Jr. shared a meme featuring the late defense lawyer of OJ Simpson, Johnnie Cochran, with a play on his famous line, “If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”

“If you cant impeach rip up the speach,” read the meme, misspelling and all.

The meme was a reference to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s now-infamous stunt where she tore up a copy of President Trump State of the Union speech this past Tuesday.

“Not to mention, OJ was acquitted but guilty AF,” one commenter wrote. “Nice comparison junior.”
