The internet is, once again, having some fun at Donald Trump’s expense, after he called his son Donald Trump Jr a “high quality” person in a statement read out by principal deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in an off-camera briefing with reporters on Tuesday afternoon.
“My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency,” Trump said in the brief statement.
The statement comes after Trump Jr tweeted emails detailed how he set up a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016, which was organised to provide the Trump campaign with supposedly damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
The ill-advised tweets have forced the White House into damage control, but Trump Jr seems quite proud of his actions.
Of course, Twitter users are having a field day over Trump’s odd way of describing his children, and some of the responses are hilarious, with the #highquality hashtag taking off!
One tweeter described Trump’s comment as a “sh*tty sales pitch” for his children.
Another hilariously applied the statement to their own (apparently) exhibitionist daughter:
Another, again, pointed out that while you might describe many things as “high quality”, it is generally not a term you use to describe your children.
And this tweeter was brutally honest about the type of person who uses a descriptor such as “high quality”.
Even Hugh Grant got in on the anti Donald Trump Jr fun, pointing out in a less-joking way that Trump Jr is anything but a high quality person, sharing an old picture of Trump Jr proudly holding up a saw-off elephant’s tail on safari.
“Americans often ask me to define the British word “Wanker”, he captioned the shot.
