Donald Trump Jr. Fires Back at Chelsea Handler for Her ‘Sick Tweet Targeted at Our Family’

Donald Trump Jr. Chelsea Handler

The gloves are off between Chelsea Handler and President Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr.

The two clashed on Monday over a tweet Handler posted about Eric and Lara Trump’s announcement that they are expecting a baby. “Just what we need. Another person with those jeans,” Handler tweeted on Monday. She tweeted a correction shortly after that she meant to type “genes.”

Trump Jr. reacted by posting a long-winded response, calling Handler out not only for her spelling mistake, but also for her “below the belt” attack on the pregnancy announcement.

“The liberal elite’s real hatred is hopefully starting to be apparent to mainstream America (both right and left). Their whole ‘party of tolerance’ nonsense only applies if you fully buy into their dogma,” Trump Jr. wrote, adding, “So much for the party of science,” in reference to Handler misspelling.

After unleashing a string of hashtags, including the “#fakenews” idea which is so popular with his father’s supporters, Trump Jr. concluded by congratulating his brother on the news: “BTW: Congrats Eric and Lara! See how easy that is? #tolerance #acceptance.”

Handler had originally posted about the pregnancy, and expressed her hope that the child would turn out to be a girl … turns out it’s a boy.

“I guess one of Donald Trump’s sons is expecting a new baby. Just what we need. Another person with those jeans. Let’s hope for a girl,” Handler, a comedian and outspoken critic of President Trump, tweeted.

“Sorry about the spelling mistake. I meant “genes,” not “jeans.” I’m a little stoned. What’s your excuse,” Handler later clarified.

    It never ceases to amaze me how far people will go when there clan in not in charge. The powers that be have done a masterful job at dividing this county. Each one has taken what they percieve to be the moral high ground, while both allow hate to rule the day. Freedom comes at a high cost. It is a overbearing task master. You see it allows people to freely speak their mind, while granting the same privilege to others. The free exchange of information, or opinion is paramount to having a free society. If all speech is not protected, then who decides what we can say. Who is the moral high master that gets to decide what someone else say? Who is this moral group of people that is so lofty in thought? Greed, and malace. Without freedom of speech, religion, and the press, and the right to degend ourselves, there is no freedom. Love allows, defends the weak. Love is honest, good, lovely, and of good report.
    Love is long suffering. Love is patient, kind, and considerate. Both sides of this argument lack tolerance, while spewing their hate, and self righteous bigotry. When will we see that the forces that be revel in our great divide, as they grow stronger and more powerful everyday. Who will say, “you might be right,” or “I cound be wrong.” Come let us break bread together, and talk until we agree. If we are to survive this great divide, we should probably get real gabby, real soon.

    In a related story, Hitler was always whining about how mean the Jews were to him.

    The headline should read “Renown Talentless Slut Slams Decent Family”

  4. Alyson brignac says:

    Handler is an ugly, unfunny, filthy, intelligence challenged alcoholic. Ditto for Schumer.

    And another snowflake was born…

    Three unwise men came bearing gifts of fake news, spray on tan for toddlers and Russian prostitutes with urinary tract infections.

    “Typical Hollywood trash monger…”

    What does that make you, Jenny, since you’re on a Hollywood-related site?

    Never mind all the disgusting, illegal, lying, bullying Drumpf has done. Or the fact that we taxpayers are funding his endless golf trips to his home in Florida.

    Chelsea Handler’s joke is the burning issue of our time.

    • Conscientious Objector says:

      I suspect Chelsea Handler’s crotch has a burning issue.

    • AmandaSue2 says:

      You may have forgotten that our President, Donald Trump, is being paid a Whoooping ONE DOLLAR a year salary, for his service to our country, and I seriously doubt that his flights anywhere, are being paid for by the taxpayers. It’s a new day and different kinda guy. Better get use to it, or you’ll be really miserable for the next 8 years.

  8. Cath says:

    And why call out the “liberal elite” when he has a beef with her personally? Funny how a family that claims to own billions uses “elite” in a pejorative way. Handler is unique as a personality. Elite, nah.

  9. Steve Barr says:

    Yeah the Trump family. The two American Psycho sons daddy’s little girl Ivanka and Prince Baron and his mommy with her caviar skin cream .

  10. The Truth says:

    Ironic that Trump Jr. calls out Handler for spelling errors when his dad is Mr. “Wiretapp” (sic). Also his “below the belt” comment when everyone in the world knows about his father’s disgusting below-the-belt groping. Or how much lower below the belt could fake patriot, draft dodging Trump Sr. go than his disgraceful prisoner of war remarks about Senator John McCain? That said, taking cheap pot shots at Trump’s family in general and Lara Trump’s pregnancy in particular is lazy comedy at best, especially when the old man himself presents such a consistently fat target. Let’s hope Lara has a healthy baby who grows up to realize what a total dickhead his grandfather is.

    Trump won’t win a war of words with Handler….lol….

    Always Team anyone else, but that asshole family.
