Gather round, kids! It’s time for a Trump family tradition: trick or half-baked lesson on political theory!
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a photo of his daughter holding her Halloween candy on Tuesday, joking about taking away half of her haul and giving it to some lazy kid to teach her about socialism:
I├óΓé¼Γäóm going to take half of Chloe├óΓé¼Γäós candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It├óΓé¼Γäós never to early to teach her about socialism. pic.twitter.com/3ie9C0jv2G

Congratulations, you just took the equivalent of a shitty online economics course at Trump University! Here is your cap and hunting rifle.
Social media users were quick to call out the holes in Junior’s Twitter lecture, explaining that Chloe was actually given her candy via socialism, since the Trick R Treater literally went door to door accepting handouts from other people.
Other Twitics simply blasted Donald Trump‘s eldest son for using his daughter as a prop for his poorly thought out economic allegory.
See the scathing responses (below)!
I├óΓé¼Γäóm going to send my kid out with her bag already full and tell her she earned it so she can learn about arrogance and privilege.

Fill her bucket with old candy left by her great-grandfather, then explain that she has more because she’s smarter than all the other kids. https://t.co/0lbhHYyFe4

Perhaps if you also told her the kid was too sick to get up and go trick or treating, and had no healthcare, she might learn about sharing. https://t.co/HAi8qwTB7z

My man, “socialism” was her getting that free candy in the first place. You taking half for reasons she can’t understand is capitalism https://t.co/w9x9zB0xLA

…or, you could tell her you’re taking it to help kids with cancer but then leave a wrapper trail so she can learn how Trump charities work

Sick to use your kid for political ends.

You mean the candy that she got for free out of the goodness of strangers’ hearts? ├░┼╕╦£ΓÇÜ├░┼╕╦£ΓÇÜ├░┼╕╦£ΓÇÜ

You mean the candy everyone in the community bought, then redistributed evenly, fairly and free of charge to anyone who asked for it?
