Donald Trump Jr., whose father is rich, and whose father’s father was rich, and whose father’s father’s father was rich, joked on Twitter about taking away half of his daughter’s Halloween candy and giving it to another kid to teach her about socialism.

“I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to [sic] early to teach her about socialism,” Trump Jr. wrote.

Twitter erupted.

“Why not give half a thought to the less fortunate?” wrote Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol, a Republican. “It’s never too late for adults to learn not to be smug about being born on third base.”

Others argued that a better illustration of socialism might be, say, a bunch of neighbors mutually agreeing to share their candy with one another’s children.

And still others went in on Trump Jr. for benefitting from his father’s wealth, hunting exotic animals for sport, using his young daughter in a political argument, and his ties to Russia.

Rosie O’Donnell didn’t mince words: “Maybe u should teach her how to visit u and grandpa in prison… u deluded spawn of satan .”

It’s been a good couple days for weird metaphors from Team Trump: On Monday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders used an analogy about beer to explain taxes.
