Everyone Would Like Trump’s Son To F*ck Off Over Tweet Following London Attack

Donald Trump Jr used the attack at the House of Parliament to blast our ally, because of course.

Junior took London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s words out of context following the attack which left four dead, including a police officer. 20 others were injured and the suspect was shot dead. It was just hours after the attack that Junior tweeted, “You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.”

Trump’s son included a link from a 2016 article which quoted Khan as saying terror attacks were “part and parcel of living in a big city”, and “I want to be reassured that every single agency and individual involved in protecting our city has the resources and expertise they need to respond in the event that London is attacked.”

Khan was not responding to the attack today unless he has a time machine.

The Guardian reports:

The tweet earned strong criticisms in the US and the UK, including from Wes Streeting, the MP for Ilford North and former president of the National Union of Students.

Londoners weighed in, too.

Khan’s response was, “Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.” Apparently, Trump’s son will, though.

This is what Mayor Khan said:

He said that terrorism preparedness, including providing sufficient support to the police, was “part and parcel of living in a great global city.”

“That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities; it means the security services being ready, but it also means exchanging ideas and best practice,” Mr. Khan said in a video interview published by The Evening Standard, another British paper. (For the record, Mr. Khan did say the victims of the Chelsea bombing were in his “thoughts and prayers.”)

“Nothing is more important to me than keeping Londoners safe,” Mr. Khan added. “I want to be reassured that every single agency and individual involved in protecting our city has the resources and expertise they need to respond in the event that London is attacked.”

In response to his tweet, Junior told the New York Times in an email, “I’m not going to comment on every tweet I send.”

Like father, like son.

Last year, Junior compared Syrian refugees to Skittles.
