Trump Jr.’s tweet about Halloween and socialism is a train wreck
On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. tried to give a “lesson” about socialism on Halloween.
Twitter wasn’t having it.
Trump Jr. posted a picture of his daughter in her Halloween costume holding up her candy from trick-or-treating and wrote, “I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism.”

The oldest son of President Donald Trump was quickly met with a flood of 30,000 comments, most of which pointed out that he didn’t understand Halloween or socialism.
After all, as many people pointed out, the candy was given out for free, which is more about friendly neighbors and charity than it is about socialism.
Others suggested ways that the candy could be divvied out that reflected his father’s tax plan instead.

Imagine seeing your beautiful girl on Halloween & thinking: ‘Ooh, I can use this to tweet about why sharing is bad’ https://t.co/A9jDu9IVLC

You may just exceed your father in an uncanny ability to make even the most innocent things in this world ugly and divisive.

When Chloe’s Daddy is indicted, maybe she will have a chance to become a decent human. But…DNA. Nice thought while it lasted.

Imagine being the son of Donald Trump and believing you earned your candy.

…or, you could tell her you’re taking it to help kids with cancer but then leave a wrapper trail so she can learn how Trump charities work
