Since Donald Trump Jr.’s wife Vanessa Trump officially filed for divorce in the Manhattan Supreme Court, the internet has responded and experienced a healthy sense of schadenfreude at Trump Jr.’s expense.
In 2011, he took a cheap shot at Kim Kardashian for her divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries. It was a mean-spirited, unprovoked tweet against a woman who didn’t deserve it and provides conclusive evidence that Trump Jr. is, in fact, fair game for mockery.
Kim Kardishian is getting a divorce, I can't believe I lost the office pool by betting the under on 3 weeks. Thought that was easy money!!!

He finally got his pounds of flesh:
Look it’s not that I think divorce is funny. I just want Donald Trump Jr. to never be happy, and this is a subset of that.

I refuse to joke about Vanessa Trump bc it's NEVER funny when a couple files for an uncontested quick divorce, one where assets can be swiftly transferred, on the same day an independent special counsel subpoenas their family business. People, this could happen to you someday.

Trump Jr propagandizes for and is deeply inmplicated in a regime that's literally physically tearing immigrant families apart at gunpoint and y'all want me to tsk at people making jokes about his divorce? lol gtfo

I get why some people are hesitant to make fun of Donald Trump Jr's impending divorce "because he has five kids" but have we considered that that this might be the best thing that ever happens to those kids

I don't want to speculate about Don Jr.'s divorce, but I can definitely say that an ancient witch has his soul trapped in a fart jar. pic.twitter.com/DzCeemIfIZ

“Mocking Don Jr’s divorce is wrong!” shout the people who called a teenage Chelsea Clinton ugly and the Obama kids names I can’t even repeat.
