Poor Don Jr. He can't seem to do anything right, including getting his dad to love him. His latest tweet, shared on the anniversary of the presidential election, shows off the "thank you note" he got from daddy-o after his victory, and man it is harsh. It proves that not even dressing up in a skin-tight American flag costume with a rubber Trump mask was enough for Daddy Donnie. At least this time Don Jr. got the day right, eh? Because last time he tried to tweet about election stuff, he did not. Searching high and low for a silver lining here, folks.
It's a pretty well-known fact that Donald Trump had a fraught relationship with his father, Fred. So it's only natural that his own daddy issues would trickle down to his eldest son, Donald Jr.

Here's the heartfelt gesture of love and appreciation Donald Trump felt was appropriate to give to his first-born son on the day he won the election to the highest office in the land:

@TheDweck @DonaldJTrumpJr Not even a "Love" Dad, really sad.— Jpearl (@Jpearl)1510195503.0
TV writer Jess Dweck put it bluntly:
@DonaldJTrumpJr It is so indescribably sad that you have to ask for an autograph from your dad to get his attention and approval— Jess Dweck (@Jess Dweck)1510193615.0
If we're being honest, this note is so painfully generic that we wouldn't be surprised if Tiffany also had one...and Trump hates Tiffany.
@DonaldJTrumpJr Dude, the automated Thank You message I get after ordering from Postmates is longer than this— Jess Dweck (@Jess Dweck)1510204995.0
Of course, they were very different from Don Jr.'s tragic Sharpied disaster.

There's also this piece of memorabilia from Inauguration Day that we like to look back on and weep to every now and then.
