If there’s one thing that’s definitely hereditary in the Trump family, it’s the absolute inability to avoid looking like a complete fool on a regular basis.
Such is the case with Donald Trump Jr. — aka Traitor Tot — who probably thought he was helping make his father’s case about mail-in voting being rife with fraud, even though there’s zero evidence to support such an assertion.
Junior tweeted out a link to a story from the Associated Press (AP) about a mail carrier in West Virginia who was caught messing with requests for absentee ballots in the state. According to the AP:
“A West Virginia postal carrier has pleaded guilty to altering mail-in requests for absentee voter ballots. Thomas Cooper entered the plea Thursday in federal court in Elkins. Cooper was charged in May after eight mail-in requests for absentee voter ballots had their party affiliations altered.
“An investigation found five of the ballot requests were changed from Democrat to Republican with a black ink pen. On the other three requests, the voters’ party was not changed but the word Republican was later circled in black ink.”
That led Don Jr. to tweet out this:
But but but this would never really happen!!!🙄

But as others on social media were quick to remind Junior, the man got caught, so it only proves how difficult it is to cheat with mail ballots. Also, the person who was busted was a Republican!
It was a Republican and the system worked. He got caught.

And because it is a good system, he was caught. 🙄

The mail carrier is a Trump supporter. He altered some of the envelopes — guess who noticed? Election clerks and that’s where this ended.
It’s not fraudulent to vote by mail.

I know Jr. is as big on reading as his dad, but did NO ONE TELL HIM that the fraud in this case was done by someone who was a GOP supporter of his old man?
Also, the guy got caught, which kind of defeats the point that mail-in balloting is truly a threat to election integrity. https://t.co/PvYDA6JoM5

I can explain it to you, but I can’t make you understand it. This is proof the system works. Vote by mail is extremely safe. Unlike voting via machine made in China that your sister has a patent for.

They’re republicans, Junior.
This isn’t the mic drop you think it is.

Anyone taking bets on how long before Junior’s daddy retweets his son’s moronic post?
