If there’s anything the Trump family is good at, it’s riding in on their shiny white stallion that’s actually a half-lame donkey in a unicorn suit with a boatload of what they think are “gotcha!” moments but are, in reality, nothing more than a bunch of shitty instances of hypocrisy and sanctimony.
Let’s take Hunter Biden here, just for one example.
Donald Trump’s eldest son and namesake, Don Jr., has made quite the habit of criticizing the Democratic frontrunner’s son for quite some time now — especially when it comes to Hunter’s alleged substance abuse.
Yet all of this is coming from the guy who managed to get his ass arrested for public intoxication in the very place that public intoxication is pretty much the norm.
Back in 2001 Jr., who was quite the partier back in his day, was arrested for a PI in New Orleans, Louisiana on the Sunday before Mardi Gras, at 6:15 AM local time by Officer Louis Labat of the New Orleans Police Department. Junior was 23 years old at the time of his arrest.
Now, we all knew that Junior had a bit of a drinking problem in his younger days, and the fact that he had been arrested in the past was relatively public knowledge. However, the details surrounding that arrest were not.
That is, until now.
Recently, the arrest records of Junior’s debacle were released to the public. And while it’s your pretty standard arrest record, for the most part, there’s one piece of delicious irony tucked inside those records that the internet just could not ignore.
Donald Trump Jr. was arrested on Hillary Street in New Orleans, folks.

If that’s not hilariously ironic, then I don’t know what is.
Lots of folks on the world wide web had their own take on the recently released record:

Don Jr’s old NOLA arrest record just out from @aravosis. Serious question: Just what do you have to do to get arrested for being drunk at Mardi Gras especially if you are most extremely white and privileged? pic.twitter.com/WjdYUzKoDV

It’s worth noting that just yesterday Donald Trump, Jr. was complaining that the media wasn’t sufficiently looking into Joe Biden’s “history.” Perhaps he’s not the best messenger on the perils of history. https://t.co/YvZBz4zT6G

OK, this is apparently legit. @DonaldJTrumpJr was arrested for public intoxication in New Orleans in 2001.
On…wait for it…Hillary Street.

@DonaldJTrumpJr was ARRESTED in 2001 for public intoxication in LA
On… wait for it… HILLARY St.
He was arrested, spent 11 hrs in jail, $300 bond & then the charges magically disappeared
Remember all of this next time he opens his foul mouthhttps://t.co/zhU2RzVOTt

Normally I don’t point a person’s human mistakes, but when that person is a vile, repulsive hypocrite….
So here is Donald Trump Jr’s now-public arrest record for public intoxication.

Oof. I gotta tell ya, Junior. The next time Hunter comes up… You should probably just sit this one out.
