Social media roasts Trump over 's****y sales pitch' for his son

No one has better quality sons than Trump/.

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.

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. 

Ouch!

Do you think “high quality” is an odd way to describe your child?
