Actress Patricia Arquette has never hidden her very liberal political leanings. She recently tweeted about gun ownership, which garnered the attention of gun-loving trolls. Among those trolls was none other than Don Trump, Jr. Little Donny tried his hand at snark and Twitter took the opportunity to pounce. Never missing an opportunity to point and laugh at the Trump child, we thought we would share some of the hecklers’ responses with you.
Yesterday, Patricia Arquette tweeted:
You may have the right to have a gun but you don’t have the right to shoot it at people because you are simply angry.

Junior tweeted in response:
Solid points. Welcome to the Republican Party. https://t.co/LdIGi00WSp

His attempt at sarcasm was a complete failure. Right-wing nuts never get angry and shoot others, do they? George Zimmerman tried to auction off the gun he killed Trayvon Martin with to donate the proceeds to “defeating Hillary Clinton’s gun rhetoric.” Robert Louis Dear, Jr. was another right-wing nut who fatally shot three people, including a police officer, at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado. He couldn’t stand thinking about those aborted fetuses and had to take action. Plenty of Republicans abuse their Second Amendment right to kill others. Plenty of people emotionally shoot others – no matter their political identities.
In response to Junior’s lame attempt, Twitter lit him up. Enjoy some of our favorite replies below.
DJ you have the maturity of a 13 year old girl. You are using your “position” as son of the president to do nothing more than pick petty fights when you could be doing so much good. It’s disheartening and shameful

Like father, like son – the rotten apple falls right against the tree.
She can speak in complete sentences so that won’t work.

Uh…that’s all it takes? A tweet with proper grammar and spelling? Does that mean we have to take your father back as a Democrat?

These ladies made us laugh. We do enjoy a good grammar burn from time to time.
Perhaps the best response to Junior’s pathetic attempt at sarcasm was by this woman who trolled him with his father’s own words:
Here’s whose side daddy warmonger was on before the NRA bought him and the syphilis really kicked in: pic.twitter.com/MC5XemNVdZ

Interesting, huh? What exactly DID Obama have to say in Newtown. In part, he said:
As a country, we have been through this too many times. Whether it’s an elementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a temple in Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago — these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. And we’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.
Exactly. Preventing the deaths of innocent people have nothing to do with politics and everything to do with being a compassionate society. If we can prevent some of these needless deaths, why are we not doing that? Surely, people’s right to LIVE should not take a back seat to others who just want to have fun shooting weapons that should never be in the hands of civilians.
