Twitter users dunked on Donald Trump Jr. after he shared yet another inaccurate meme on Friday.
President Donald Trump’s son likened his father’s declaration of a national emergency to pay for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border to former President Barack Obama’s 2010 enaction of the Affordable Care Act with this image of Kermit the Frog sipping tea:
The caption read: “Remember when we weren’t given a choice about Obamacare? Enjoy your wall.” Trump Jr. wrote: “True story.”
However, dozens of people were at pains to point out that the ACA was passed following votes by elected lawmakers in Congress ― and not via Obama bypassing the House and Senate and declaring an emergency.
Trump Jr. has this month alone caught heat on the social media platform for repeating his father’s lie about the number of people who attended former Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s rally in Texas and insulting “loser teachers.”
This is your greatest worst moment.

I know the entire internet has already dunked on this but the spectacle of a failson princeling cranking out bad memes on topics he's too thick and incurious to understand is more or less why I'm on this website https://t.co/SfU73KRhIP

Right, I remember how Democrats couldn't pass Obamacare for two years despite holding Congress and the White House, and then Obama campaigned hard on it in 2010 and the Dems lost big again, and so he declared a national emergency to get it done.
Very smart tweet, thank you.

You mean the Obamacare that passed through Congress while your dad is calling a National Emergency for 50 miles of wall?
You are a stupid human being. Like really stupid. How are you able to get dressed by yourself?

Before you attack America’s teachers again, you should do your homework. The Affordable Care Act was passed by Congress.

Remember that time President Obama made sure people could get insurance even if they had a bum knee or survived cancer? Yuck yuck! https://t.co/YIO6sitc0A

remember when the president solemnly swore his large adult sons would stay out of politics and focus on running the family business? https://t.co/1RWc1Bte1G
