Don Jr. Gets Roundly Mocked After Tweeting Support For Prison Reform Bill

Donald Trump Jr. was heavily trolled online after tweeting out his support for his father’s so-called prison reform bill Wednesday morning:

The First Step Act has bipartisan support, but faces an uncertain future in Congress, CNBC reports:

“The goal is to pass it before a divided Congress takes office in January. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Trump last week that this is unlikely due to time constraints, according to a report by The New York Times.”

Also, the bill would only apply to federal prisoners, which make up just a small percentage of the overall U.S. prison population.

With Junior facing a possible indictment from Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a result of his meeting with Russian nationals during the 2016 campaign, social media couldn’t resist reminding the president’s son that his sudden interest in criminal justice reform is a tad bit ironic:
