Don Jr. Says Dad Warned Him to Tone Down His Tweets

Don Jr. told the hosts of Fox and Friends this morning that his father had warned him several times to cool down his social media rhetoric, that it was “getting a little hot.”

“You know, I realized, it took me 41 years to realize that I was probably a lot more like him than we ever thought. And, you know, backed in a corner, we fight,” he continued. “But every once in a while, I get that call like, ‘Hey, you’re getting a little hot on social.’”

Junior Mint, who was promoting his new book on his dad’s favorite breakfast program, extended the thumb and little finger to mimic a phone to the ear in a re-enactment of a call from the White House.

“‘This is the White House operator. The president would like to speak to you,’” he said, adding: “‘Don, getting a little hot.’”

Even Junior admits his father isn’t very convincing when it comes to advice about Twitter posts.

“But I was like, this may be the one place where I’m just going to say, ‘I’m on my own, and maybe you don’t have the authority to start talking about this.’”
