Trump Jr. just tried to take a Mueller report victory lap and got humiliated by people who actually read it

Trump’s Attorney General William Barr finally released Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report today, and the administration is claiming it as a victory (which they were doing before it was even released) despite the fact that it contains incredibly damning information about the president, including ten instances where Mueller probed whether or not Trump attempted to obstruct justice.

The fact that Barr, the president’s handpicked hack, chose not to pursue obstruction charges should surprise absolutely no one familiar with how deeply corrupt Republican politics have become. This morning, before the report was made public, Barr gave an embarrassingly sycophantic press conference in which he went out of his way to shield his boss from criticism. Already, critics are predicting that he will go down as one of the worst attorneys general in American history.

The president’s namesake buffoon of a son is ecstatic, presumably because he lacks the attention span or basic literacy to understand what a deeply unflattering portrait of him the report paints. In reality, it’s possible that he could still face criminal proceedings, perhaps for breaking anti-hacking laws.

His uncertain fate didn’t stop him from tweeting though, as he sent out a triumphant “TOLD YA!!” as if the report had completely exonerated him rather than made him look guiltier than ever.

Twitter users were not kind to Trump Jr.’s tweet, with many of them taking shots at his intelligence while pointing out that the Mueller report is, in fact, not good news for him.

Some pointed out that the report seems to indicate that the only reason Mueller didn’t indict the First Son was because he wasn’t smart enough to know he was breaking the law during his now-infamous Trump Tower meeting with surrogates of the Russian government.

“Taking into account the high burden to establish a culpable mental state in a campaign-finance prosecution and the difficulty in establishing the required valuation, the office decided not to pursue criminal campaign-finance charges against Trump Jr. or other campaign officials for the events culminating in the June 9 meeting,” the report reads.
