Donald Trump Jr. doesn’t seem to care who he attacks when he’s in troll mode, as he made clear in recent posts on his Instagram. If anyone ever made the mistake of thinking that the former president’s eldest son was morally above attacking someone’s medical condition, for instance, he made sure over the weekend to prove them wrong.
Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars, over a joke made at the expense of his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, has been one of the top topics of conversation, with an endless flow of memes and opinion pieces about who was right and exactly what everyone should have done differently. However, Trump Jr. turned the focus away from the conflict between the two men to mock Pinkett-Smith’s appearance with a Chia pet meme, as captured by PatriotTakes in a screenshot below.

While that may have been the most tasteless, it wasn’t Trump Jr.’s only attempt at using the Oscars incident to grab attention and troll for reactions. He also tried out a version in which his face and Hunter Biden’s are superimposed on Will Smith and Chris Rock’s respective bodies — seeming to suggest he sees himself winning some imagined battle between sons of presidents.
If Hunter Biden feels he’s in competition with Trump Jr., he’s given no indication of it, but Jr. seems to be obsessed with Biden as some perceived enemy counterpart, though the younger Biden takes no role in his father’s administration, unlike the Trump kidults.
