Burn! Donald Trump Jr. Says 'Mitt Romney is My Favorite Democrat'

1.4k views

Even if you're a critic or straight up hate the Trump family, you have to give credit where credit is due. At the very least, Donald Trump Jr. not only has the guts to go on opposition networks to be interviewed, but he's also apparently not afraid to call out said critics on air -- even if they're a senator.

Trump Jr. went on "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday to be interviewed about his new book, "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us." As the interview was coming to a close, and just after co-host Tony Dokoupil condescendingly asked Trump Jr. to "say something nice" on Twitter concerning his appearance on the show, fellow co-host Gayle King asked President Donald Trump's son a very interesting question.

"Who is your favorite Democrat?" King asked. "Go ahead."

At first Trump Jr. didn't answer the question, instead going for the "that's a tough one" approach to not answering a question. But right before the commercial break is when Trump Jr. dropped a troll bomb that the Trumps have become pretty good at.

"Mitt Romney, Gayle," Trump began. "Mitt Romney's my favorite Democrat. How 'bout that?"

Ouch!

Here's video of the end of Trump Jr.'s "CBS This Morning" interview:

 

It's no secret that Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is not a particularly big fan of President Trump and vice-versa, so it should come as no surprise that a Trump would use a national audience to disparage the longtime politician by calling him a member of the opposite party that he represents.

As of this writing, Romney hasn't responded on either of his Twitter accounts, nor his Facebook account.
