Trump Jr. Goes Down In Flames After Defending His Father On Twitter By Attacking Roger Goodell

While defending his father’s attack on the NFL, Donald Trump Jr. burned NFL head honcho Roger Goodell on Sunday, but Twitter got the last laugh.

On a Sunday when many NFL players demonstrated to protest President Donald Trump’s harsh criticism of athletes who kneel during the national anthem, his eldest son attempted to sideline the NFL commissioner by calling him out on Twitter.

“If only Roger Goodell cared as much about domestic abuse and traumatic brain injury as he does about disrespecting America. #nfl,” Trump Jr. wrote on Twitter.

While his tweet made a good point in reminding people that the NFL’s domestic violence policy seems more about PR than substantive action, and that the league only admitted in March a link between playing football and chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease, the rest of Twitter got involved and pointed out the hypocrisy in Trump Jr.’s statement.

For that, we are forever grateful.
