Trump Jr. just humiliated himself with a serious typo in his morning attack on Washington Post

The President’s son, Donald Trump Jr. tries so very hard to emulate his father’s Twitter game and be part of the community of prominent conservative Twitter users, going toe-for-toe with media figures and basking in the praise of accounts named things like “@DeplorableSteve357.”

Unfortunately, his efforts at being extremely online are constantly hampered – like all of the wee Trump’s endeavors – by his own insurmountable stupidity.

This morning, Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to launch a sneering attack at the Washington Post – but took the wind out of his own sales by making a crucial misspelling in his attempt to mock the Post’s new motto.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

Yes, “democracy dies in dankness.” For those not in the know, “dankness” is a slang qualifier used to measure the potency of internet memes and marijuana buds. What Donnie J meant to write was “darkness.”

On top of that, the phrase is the Post’s motto, whereas a “byline” is the line in a newspaper naming the writer of an article – but we can all tell at this point that Jr. doesn’t do a whole lot of reading.

Twitter, of course, had a field day mocking the President’s despised failson for his mistakes:

One man even decided to write a poem about it!
