Donald Trump Jr. tried to explain socialism on Twitter and it hilariously backfired
Last night, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a picture of his daughter out trick-or-treating and how he was going to take her candy to teach her about socialism.
I'm going to take half of Chloe's candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It's never to early to teach her about socialism. pic.twitter.com/3ie9C0jv2G

The responses were predictably hilarious.
You teach her about nepotism and fraud everyday. I guess it's good to teach socialism to mix it up. https://t.co/4sfaTueNc8

Take all of it, give her back one piece, eat the rest take credit for getting it all yourself

I'll take 1/2 my kids candy, store it in a Cyprus tax shelter, then declare bankruptcy to teach her about capitalism https://t.co/7OAOjFYjQx

You literally took her door-to-door demanding free handouts. https://t.co/DGwsw2a7MB

To teach her about capitalism he'll sit at home, send her out to get candy, take 90% & call himself a candy provider pic.twitter.com/lenOGNLLv1

Or you could give 90% of her candy to the one richest kid in the neighborhood.
It's never too early to teach her about Republicanism. https://t.co/gARIEd0qfM

Just don't pump the candy full of lead and import it from China to teach her about crony capitalism https://t.co/3TWqHw0E8Y

giving away candy to some kid stuck at home would be a really kind thing to do. https://t.co/yYJxfjrkOc

Why don't you take all of it and eat it in front of her. Then deny her health care and food and tell her to get a dammed job if she wants to eat, and teach her about Republican capitalism? https://t.co/mqYQn9k0lO

Maybe next time he should leave the politics at home and just enjoy Halloween.
