Donald Trump, Jr. is a moron. If you think his handling of the Trump Tower meeting was pathetic, wait until you hear him render an interpretation of the ruling in the case of the Christian baker versus the gay couple. Junior misinterpreted the words “narrow decision” to mean the number of judges weighing in on the majority side. His words of wisdom to us were
I am reading about a 7 – 2 vote. Pretty sure that's not narrowly… At least 2 dem leaning justices must have agreed. https://t.co/vOjX0mOHPf

Sweet Jesus, this asshole thinks this is a hockey game. Twitter chimed in.
Narrowly means that the legal decision was narrow not the vote count, Good lord.

Trump Jr. also thought the Trump Tower meeting with Russian operatives was "narrowly" about adoption so despite a Penn education he clearly has no idea what the word means https://t.co/da2jTsDNW1

Trump Jr, surprisingly, is not an expert in appellate law or how people talk about Supreme Court decisions https://t.co/8w5RUQbas9

The surprise here is that he can read.

You mean Junior was not one of the "legal scholars" his dad cited in his suggestion that he can pardon himself?

That about sums it up. Now know that Junior has a lot bigger fish to fry than this. He’s purportedly shopping a book manuscript which is a full-throated defense of Daddy but book publishers are leery because they’re worried that Junior might be charged in the Mueller probe. This is despite Junior’s protestation that he “didn’t have time to collude.”
Not to be outdone, brother Eric chimes in about life in politics. “Every day, you get abused by somebody and the next thing you know, you’re being parodied on Saturday Night Live…My father’s life became exponentially worse the minute he decided to run for president.”
So did ours, Eric, so did ours.
