27 Donald Trump Jr. Tree Memes That Are Almost Too Perfect
If you haven't seen them yet, there are some great Donald Trump Jr. memes filling Twitter right now. This is thanks to a recent New York Times profile of the First Kid that that many readers saw as a puff piece. Proclaiming him a "different kind of Trump," the article highlighted the relatively insignificant ways in which Trump Jr.'s path in life has differed from that of his siblings. For instance, he used to go fishing as a child! To illustrate this, the Times used a picture of him sitting on a tree stump in the woods. Hence, the memes.
"Donald Trump Jr. is the Trump who has not always seemed at ease with being a Trump," the article begins. Among the ways Trump Jr. differs from his siblings: He worked as a bartender for a bit before joining the Trump Organization, was once arrested for public intoxication, and "connects with heartland voters." One associate described Trump Jr. as "the more chill version of any of the [Trump] kids."
And how chill is he, you ask? Chill enough that he goes to the woods, sits on a tree stump and stares pensively into the distance when he needs to unwind. Needless to say, this picture was ripe for meme-age, and the good folks of Twitter quickly obliged.
