Trump Jr. just called teachers “losers” and got sent to the principal’s office by Twitter

Last night, in an effort to throw red meat to his most racist supporters and peddle his asinine, never-going-to-happen border wall, Trump held a rally in El Paso, Texas. He decided to bring his neanderthal son Donald Trump Jr. along for the ride and as is so often the case with the conspiracy-mongering, intellectually and morally empty waste of organic matter, it was only a matter of time before junior’s comments caused outrage.

While addressing the crowd at the rally, Trump Jr. decided to attack, of all people, teachers. He urged the young conservatives in the crowd to bring their ideology to school and told them they don’t have to be “indoctrinated by these loser teachers that are trying to sell you on socialism from birth.”

The stunning comments seemingly came out of left field, but tie into a persistent and pernicious belief on the right which claims that schools are bastions of leftist brainwashing. The simple fact that their own conservative worldview might be completely untethered from reality and as such inappropriate for a classroom never seems to occur to these people.

After all, Republicans are the ones who still insist that climate change is either a hoax or not a big deal even as the overwhelming majority of scientists tells that us it poses an existential risk to our species. Republicans are, after all, the ones who still insist that, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, trickledown economics work.

The simple fact is that Republicans believe what they want, regardless of the evidence. It’s little wonder then that they hold education and the selfless individuals who dedicate themselves to imparting knowledge to our youth in such vile disregard. Ironically, Donald Trump Jr. is a prime example of what happens when not enough attention is paid to education. He is a jabbering, ignorant fool.

Let’s be frank, he’d be off happily licking doorknobs in Trump Tower if his father weren’t constantly carting him out to shill for his reelection.

Soon after his shameful remarks broke, junior found himself buried beneath an avalanche of rightfully angry tweets, ranging from teacher unions to Americans who simply refuse to allow educators to be so unfairly attacked and maligned. The outpouring of tweets against Trump Jr. was powerful and poignant, a stirring reminder that much of this country still has not lost its collective mind.
