Donald Trump Jr. gloated over the swiftly unfolding collapse of Afghanistan to Taliban forces -- and was hit was furious backlash.
The twice-impeached one-term president's namesake son blamed the collapse on President Joe Biden's intelligence analysts, and used the tragedy to attack his father's successor on a laundry list of topics that appear regularly on Fox News programming.
"Not surprising," Trump Jr. said, responding to a tweet from political scientist Bruno Maçães. "Biden's woke 'intelligence' gurus are the same ones who were WRONG on Russian collusion & Russian bounties, WRONG about China & Iran being 'competitors,' WRONG on Covid origins, WRONG on Hunter's laptop, & WRONG on basically everything else."
Other social media users quickly fact-checked Trump Jr. and called him out.
