The Trump family has a reputation for a certain lack of sensitivity and self-awareness. Because of that, it’s not terribly surprising that Donald Trump Jr. topped his Christmas tree with an action figure of his father, President Donald Trump.
Junior said he “couldn’t choose between an angel and asStar, so [he] picked both.”
The eye rolls coming from all corners of the internet are artistically epic.

Donald Trump is neither a star nor an angel. He’s is a non-arboreal biped who tries to encourage other non-arboreal bipeds to believe things that are not true.

Aside from the fact that Donald Trump is neither an angel nor a star, who puts their dad on top of their Christmas tree?!
Why would he put an orange on top of a tree?

he is just hoping his dad won't hang him out to dry when they come for him.

It’s almost painful to watch.
If he were a better man I’d feel bad for him

Not to mention his usage of the hashtag #triggered, for which many have saved a second eye roll.
The "triggered" hashtag is killing me, like, yes, Don, you placing an effigy of the father who openly despises you on the Christmas tree in an act of Ultimate Normality has given me an outrage aneurysm. I am well & truly owned.

smh at the "# triggered"

Adds the triggered hashtag because conservative politics means being the sort of grown adult who feels the need to make everything, even supposedly sweet filial gestures, a political jab at liberals.

After two separate incidents on Instagram in which he mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and posted a fake graphic of his fathers’ versus Obama’s approval ratings, Donald Jr. seems as uncouth and untrustworthy as his tree-topping dad.
