Donald Trump Jr. wasn’t always sure what to do with his life, but in the last five-plus years he’s found a purpose: He’s his father’s most unhinged hype man. Since his dad lost re-election in November, his videos have gone even further into the ether. Bleary-eyed, slurry, incoherent rants have become de rigueur for the 45th president’s oldest (and possibly jailbound) son, prompting much speculation about what may have inspired their ostentatious battiness. But his latest has people kind of worried about his health.

It’s not clear where it was posted, and only a 30-second clip has been making the rounds. (He did just join Cameo, incidentally.) But it finds an even more amped-up than usual Don Jr., on some kind of unfollowable nonsense about Biden and Putin and also…McDonald’s? It seems to (maybe) be about his father’s successor trying to get the Russian president to not spy on him. Or something. Hunter’s in there, too. If there was a larger, more coherent point Jr. was making, it’s not evident from this clip, which manages to meander, even in 30 seconds, all while drowning in bitter sarcasm.
People usually mock Don Jr. over these videos, but this one, people felt, was particularly off the deep end. And many thought maybe he should seek help for whatever’s wrong with him.
I dislike this man with every fiber of my being and despise the harm his words have caused, but I also truly hope someone steps in and gets him some help. My god. https://t.co/PkTONml1iR

This level of incoherence–DJT Jr's speech is slurred, in addition to the word salad–demands an intervention. The Trumps are the most empathy-deficient family. If Don Jr were your brother or son, you'd be getting him into rehab. This devolution isn't even amusing anymore. https://t.co/0aSpstU1Jt

In all seriousness, anyone who cares about this person, even a little bit, needs to hold an intervention now. Politics aside, He is in trouble. pic.twitter.com/7tTrCAjhBK

Others simply made jokes about you know what.

Or maybe it’s genetic.
Holy shit!!! This boy is wasted and losing it. Incoherence is a family genetic trait. https://t.co/rQl2ZRzt5k

Some advised him to maybe write it down first.

And others joked that someone may have paid a lot of money for this.
