‘Idiot’ Trump Jr. Gets Demolished After Trying To Mock Air Pollution Study
Donald Trump Jr. is being dragged all over the internet after he tried to mock a report showing that air pollution disproportionately hurts blacks and Hispanics.
A new study found that black Americans are exposed to 56 more pollution than they cause through consumption, while Hispanics are exposed to 63 percent more than they add to the atmosphere.
About 100,000 Americans die from air pollution each year — more than car crashes and murders combined — and other social media users blasted the president’s son for making light of the problem.
But the president’s son attempted to joke away the research findings.
“Just when you thought you’ve seen it all… now we have RACIST AIR,” Trump Jr. tweeted. “This insanity has to stop.”
The joke totally backfired and he was met with scorn and ridicule.
Here are some of the responses:

You really are ignorant. Its obvious your daddy bought your way through school. When's the last time you saw an industrial plant surrounded by million dollar homes? Sewage plants mixed in with wealthy homes? Yet minority homes are!

Trust me…the air in Malibu is a lot different than the air downtown.

The fact you don't understand this (it includes human and industrial geography, data analysis, plumes, etc.) seems ironic given the recent news that wealthy people are buying spots for their under-performing kids in top universities.
