'Numbskull' Donald Trump Jr brutally mocked for thinking conservative fan's deleted tweet is censorship

Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday accused Twitter of censoring a popular supporter of his father -- however, he quickly got buried in ridicule after people realized that the tweet in question had actually been deleted by the user.

The trouble for Trump Jr. began when he noticed that a tweet by Trump supporter Candace Owens praising the president no longer appeared in his timeline -- and he immediately assumed that Twitter was at fault.

"So now [Owens] is being censored by Twitter?" Trump Jr. wrote angrily. "She simply said 'He likes the way I think' referring to the duly elected President of The United States. I guess if you’re effective you get censored now!?!? Got it."

However, it seems that Owens had simply deleted her original tweet and then replaced it with a lengthier response in which she said she was "truly honored and humbled" by Trump's tweet, which she also said was "an affirmation I will never forget."

Given that Trump Jr. had obviously jumped the gun on accusing Twitter of censorship, his followers pounced and mocked him for making such a bone-headed mistake.
