Internet rallies behind son of NYT’s Haberman after he creates a Twitter account to slam Trump’s criticism of his mom
On Sunday, President Donald Trump slammed the New York Times‘ White House correspondent Maggie Haberman as a “Hillary [Clinton] flunky” who doesn’t have any access.
…have shown conclusively that there was no Collusion with Russia..just excuse for losing. The only Collusion was that done by the DNC, the Democrats and Crooked Hillary. The writer of the story, Maggie Haberman, a Hillary flunky, knows nothing about me and is not given access.

In response, Haberman’s son, Max Gregorian, created his own Twitter account to blast the president on his favorite medium — and gained his own defenders in the process.
“How I (want to) react when @realDonaldTrump criticizes my mom,” the 12-year-old tweeted, using a gif of Luke Skywalker brushing debris off of his shoulder to describe his feelings.

In response, journalists and laypeople alike rallied around Gregorian, congratulating him for joining Twitter to defend his mom and expertly referencing Star Wars in one fell swoop.
“Padawan with the Jedi move,” Eqsquire‘s Max Potter tweeted.

If your mom weren’t upsetting people in power, she wouldn’t be doing her job. You should be proud of her.
