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.

Apparently the press only likes their information "leaked" from unverified sources rather than released openly from congress… I think it will be tough for them to sell their "democracy dies in dankness" byline with this kind of logic. https://t.co/fXHv0UjLtX

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:
I’m pretty sure I just died in dankness. Can someone reincarnate me in a decade less moronic. I’ll wait. pic.twitter.com/bkh7c7pekJSponsored Links

If only Don Jr, or Sr, for that matter, engaged in occasional “dankness” they’d both be wayyyy more chill and we’d all be a lot less angry about the situation.

One man even decided to write a poem about it!
Of course I wrote a poem about Don Jr. saying "Democracy dies in dankness": https://t.co/Cnm1n55iqz
