Another day, another ill-advised tweet sent out by the Trump family. Changing things up a bit this week was Donald Jr., who took over for his dad in the ‘Why Would You Ever Tweet That’ department.

The younger Trump thought it would be a great idea to use Halloween as a backdrop for teaching his young daughter Chloe and all his followers about socialism. Unfortunately, his point missed the mark, taking a glorious holiday filled with costumes and candy and turning it into a Twitter firestorm. This is why we can’t have nice things.

Posting a picture of his daughter showing off her Halloween candy, Donald Jr. tweeted “I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism.”

Oh, Junior. So close, yet so, so far.

Not surprisingly, Twitter had a field day with the tweet, with users taking issue with a variety of topics.

We can always depend on JK Rowling to keep it real.

Actor Zach Braff used bullet points to lay out his argument.

One teacher pointed out that Halloween isn’t accessible for all children, something the Trumps may not ‘get.’

Well, this is ironic.

Many thought Donald Jr. misused the word socialism instead of capitalism.

Savage, but true.

Like, what does the little girl’s look really mean?

We have a feeling Grandpa Donald will likely come after his nemesis Rosie O’Donnell for her tweet.

This tweet managed to bring down the entire Trump family in 140 characters.

This seems so familiar. Didn’t someone else do something similar with hotels?…

Some couldn’t help but point out the glaring grammatical error.

Justice 4 Chloe.

Others stayed focused on the lack of candy in the plastic pumpkin. Donald Jr. must not have taken Chloe to the ‘nice’ neighborhoods. No full-sized chocolate bars? Pffft.

It feels like 2017 has been a parody.

Some Twitter users pointed out that like all situations, this is yet another time to blame Hillary Clinton.

Leave it to comedian Ricky Gervais to bring some levity to the situation.

Sharing is caring. Now pass the mini Snickers.
