Called Out

DTJ says firing people on Twitter lacks ‘decency’ — gets reminded that’s how his dad fired people all the time


In a video posted to Rumble this Saturday, Donald Trump Jr. slammed the disbanding of the Washington Football Team’s cheerleading program, saying that the team “didn’t have the decency to tell them face-to-face.”

“The cheerleading squad was disbanded, but apparently they read about it on Twitter,” Trump Jr. said. “They didn’t say, ‘Hey come to the office, we gotta talk.’ This is insanity guys. They didn’t even have the decency to let these women know in person. They read about it on Twitter.”

But as many point out, his dad fired people on Twitter all the time during his tenure as president.

Donald Trump used Twitter to fire Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielson, Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, White House Counsel Don McGahn, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and Christopher Krebs, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, HuffPost’s Mary Papenfuss writes.

Trump’s Jr.’s critics on Twitter were a little baffled at his selective memory.

The Washington Football Team (formerly the Washington Redskins) plans to replace the cheerleading program with a coed dance team next season, after multiple accusations of sexual harassment from the women on the squad.
