What Did Donald Trump Jr. Say About The Alec Baldwin Accidental Film Shooting?

Like his father, Donald Trump Jr. seems to be an expert at getting under people's skin. Don Jr. has taken his dad's place as the Trump family social media troll, creating controversy and feeding feuds online. So it's no surprise that Don Jr. has plenty to say about Alec Baldwin's accidental shooting on the set of "Rust." Baldwin has been an outspoken critic of the 45th president and savagely imitated Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live" for years.

The oldest son of the former president is the most conservative Trump child and the closest to his dad in temperament. His ability to channel his father's energy has made him a valuable asset to the former president, with CNN reporting that Don Jr. was his father's "top adviser." The Guardian reported that Donald's oldest child is "seen by many as the heir apparent to the 'Make America Great Again' (MAGA) movement."

But Trump critic and founder of anti-Trump PAC, The Lincoln Project, Rick Wilson describes Don Jr. less charitably. Wilson claimed that the former president's son has risen in rank because he "speaks the fluent a**hole dialogue of the own-the-libs Trump Party." Yikes. So, what exactly did Don Jr. have to say about Alec Baldwin's tragic shooting? 

Donald Trump Jr. has been trolling Alec Baldwin

Donald Trump Jr. trolled actor Alec Baldwin a day after the movie set tragedy that resulted in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. On October 22, the 43-year-old son of Donald Trump posted a photo of Baldwin on Instagram with the caption, "That look when an anti gun nut kills more people than your extensive firearm collection ever has..." Don Jr. is an avid hunter who considered running for an NRA leadership position in 2020.

Don Jr.'s ridicule of Baldwin on social media continued over the weekend. On October 23, the former president's son shared a meme of the actor and his wife, Hilaria, on Instagram, which read, "How do we say, in English, we're f*****?" (The English mention appears to be a nod to the whole scandal regarding Hilaria's connection to Spanish culture.) In the caption, Don Jr. added several questions, including, "Why do those who hate guns so much have no problem profiting from them. Why are those who hate guns and profit from them not learning basic gun safety so as to be able to double check these things themselves?"

The posts didn't end there — Don Jr. also shared a Homer Simpson meme to Instagram that read, "Let's all watch Alec Baldwin blame the gun," along with the caption, "It's only a matter of time."

Twitter isn't happy with Donald Trump Jr.'s memes

Much like his father's 2020 election results, Donald Trump Jr.'s mean-spirited memes aren't fairing so well... not on Twitter, anyway. Many took the self-professed "general in the meme wars" to task for the insensitive social media posts.

Musician John Lurie let his thoughts be known about the online trolling loud and proud as he recalled a similar incident. "I knew Michael Massee, the actor who accidentally shot and killed Brandon Lee. It absolutely destroyed him. He never recovered," he fired out in a tweet. "I am astounded by the cruelty of some of these posts on Alec Baldwin. The stupidity of this crowd, however, is no longer a surprise." Conservative political commentator Steven Crowder also shared his thoughts on what appears to be a lack of understanding and compassion during such a tragedy. "One can have empathy for BOTH the family of Halyna Hutchins and Alec Baldwin in this heart-wrenching tragedy," he tweeted. "Even if you disagree with him. My heart just breaks. I can't even imagine."

Donald Trump Jr. isn't backing down

Unfortunately, all of the public criticism surrounding the insensitive online trolling fell on deaf ears as Donald Trump Jr. took it one step further when he unleashed yet another antagonistic meme on his Instagram account.

In one fell swoop the former president's son managed to troll three separate people including Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden, and actor Alec Baldwin with a side-by-side photo of all three men with the words, "KNOW THE DIFFERENCE... BIG PHARMA, BIG PARMA, BIG KARMA," and a caption that read, "The more you know. This PSA has been brought to you by facts and logic." Something tells us this is only the beginning of Don Jr.'s senseless quest to publicly berate Baldwin for the tragic accident.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Halyna Hutchins.
