We can always count on Donald Trump Jr. for a seriously terrible take! And he delivered in classic fashion on Halloween night by invoking his poor, innocent daughter Chloe and her candy haul in a dumb tweet about socialism. Trump Jr. proved once again that he just doesn't get it, and boy oh boy, the Internet let him have it. It was glorious to watch.
Trump Jr. took to Twitter to post this photo of his daughter holding her bucket full of candy with the caption, "I'm going to take half of Chloe's candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It's never to [sic] early to teach her about socialism."

Or take it all and don’t pay her for it like her grandpa would. https://t.co/6jsi1PDM2D— shauna (@shauna)1509502326.0
Journalist Soledad O'Brien had another idea: "You could TELL her you're donating the candy to charity, but then really funnel 100k of it to yourself. (Ask Uncle Eric about that!)," she wrote.

It's also never too early to teach her basic English. Like the difference between to, two and too. https://t.co/dD3wEsynz5— Jonathan Pie (@Jonathan Pie)1509534644.0
