The oldest son of President Donald Trump spent the morning celebrating Attorney General Bob Barr’s determination that he couldn’t find any prosecutable crimes in the Trump White House with a series of tweets, including a celebratory: “TOLD YA!!!”
What Don Trump Jr. failed to mention is that he didn’t come off looking like the sharpest Trump in the family, with the special counsel noting Trump Jr. seemed to be over his head when it came to dealing with the Russians, or anything else election-related for that matter.
According to an unredacted portion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report aimed at Trump Jr. among others: “The Office determined that the government would not be likely to obtain and sustain a conviction for two other reasons: first, the Office did not obtain admissible evidence likely to meet the government’s burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that these individuals acted ‘willfully,’ i.e., with general knowledge of the illegality of their conduct; and, second, the government would likely encounter difficulty in proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the value of the promised information exceeded the threshold for a criminal violation.”
Needless to say, Don Jr’s Twitter celebration brought out the Twitter critics who rained on his parade — as you can see below:

You were vindicated because they determined you were too stupid to know what’s going on.
So congrats on being a dumbass.

Oh no. You aren't going to prove Mueller right about your stupidity?

Yup! I guess he glossed over that part.

You might wanna keep the braggadicia down there, Jr. I realize you live with many challenges and don't have the capability to understand big concepts but Mueller concluded you were too dumb to know what you were doing. He didn't say you didn't do it. Get well soon.

You think this is good for you.

Mueller didn’t charge you because he thought you were too fucking stupid to actually commit a crime. He essentially said you were a child. Congrats on being too dumb to prosecute.
