Don Jr. Tries To Mock Al Franken’s Resignation, Backfires Immediately

When Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) announced his plans to resign Thursday, he specifically called out Donald Trump over the Access Hollywood video and Roy Moore, an alleged pedophile who is running for the Senate seat in Alabama with the GOP’s blessing. Donald Trump Jr., not known for being a brainiac, decided to mock Franken on Twitter as if he didn’t listen to the Democrat’s amazing speech. Junior invoked one of the former comedian’s “Saturday Night Live” most well-known characters, writing, “because I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and God-darnit people like me” and included the hashtag “#Franken.”

Twitter gave Junior a wake-up call:

Franken said during his speech, I, of all people, am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party.”

Trump and Moore support each other.
