Don Jr. Thinks His Dad Played Putin And Kim Jong-Un ‘Like A Fiddle’

Donald Trump Jr. is very likely the kid who threatened “my dad could beat up your dad” back in kindergarten. Even today, at the age of 44, he’s doing an equally immature version of it—except now it’s on the world stage. In his latest public plea for his dad’s approval and love, Don Jr. has posted yet another rambling, bleary-eyed video in which he came to the former president’s defense, this time over his seeming admiration (though some say fear) of tyrannical dictators like Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un.

HuffPost shared Jr.’s latest wild rant, in which he essentially claims that his father’s years of praising and slobbering all over people like Putin are just his wily dad’s way of playing the long con.

Junior kicked it off by parroting some of the most obvious criticisms plenty of smart people have had for his father, bellowing, “‘I can’t believe Trump said something nice about Putin, Kim, Xi [Jinping], anyone. He must love them! He’s folding to them! If it was me in charge, I’d tell them to go screw themselves.’ Right?” But Don the Lesser isn’t buying it:

“This is some nerd, in his mom’s basement, who’s never dealt with anything. Never actually had any power, [and] never understood those people, because he’s never been in the same room as them. In academia, they’re writing this stuff like it’s real, like they actually have a say, like they actually know what the hell they’re talking about.

Do you ever think that, like all other things, maybe Trump understood that. He knew exactly how to play these guys, and he played it like a fiddle.”

Not everyone was buying what Junior was selling about dear old dad—a man who once publicly swooned over the “love letters” he Kim Jong-un sent each other (letters that were later seized from Mar-a-Lago).
