Donald Trump Jr. Just Retweeted a Cartoon of His Father Body-Slamming French Pres. Macron

Donald Trump Jr., President Donald Trump’s eldest son, retweeted a cartoon of the president body slamming and injuring French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday.

And as is usual for the first born son of the president, it is pretty tasteless.

The image, created by conservative cartoonist Ben Garrison, shows President Trump standing triumphantly over a donkey representing the Democratic National Committee lying on the ground with its eye punched out next to a man with a smashed TV head representing the “mainstream media” and Macron who is depicted with a broken hand and injured head.

Above the image are the words “body slammed.”

Politico reported Thursday that Trump Jr. had signed a book deal with Center Street Books, an imprint of the Hachette Book Group. The book, which is set to be published later this year, is still untitled but Trump Jr. has been retweeting possible book titles since the announcement. The text that came alongside the cartoon suggested he name his book “How I kick Liberal Ass without breaking a sweat in under 60 Seconds and You can Too!”

Trump Jr.’s book will be the first published by a Trump child while in the White House. In a statement, Trump Jr. said he looked forward to “expressing my observations and opinions about this significant time in American history, the great achievements of my father’s administration, the great people across this country who support him, and those who oppose him.”
