Donald Trump Jr.'s Tweet Burns Roger Goodell, But Twitter Claps Back Harder

One tweeter lamented, "If only you cared as much about free speech as you do about pleasing your father."

To give credit where credit is due, Donald Trump Jr. skewered NFL head honcho Roger Goodell on Sunday, but Twitter got the last laugh.

On a Sunday when many NFL players demonstrated to protest President Donald Trump’s harsh criticism of athletes who kneel during the national anthem, his eldest son attempted to snidely call out the NFL commissioner.

Trump Jr.’s tweet made a good point in reminding people that the NFL’s domestic violence policy seems more about PR than substantive action, and that the league only admitted in March a link between playing football and chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease.

However, the rest of Twitter got involved and pointed out the hypocrisy in Trump Jr.’s statement.

For that, we are forever grateful.

Of course, sometimes there are no words. Just GIFs.
