There is absolutely nothing wrong with spending New Years Eve with your dad, and there is nothing wrong with taking a photo together while celebrating, but somehow when Donald Trump Jr. snaps a pic with his father it feels strained and weird.
Maybe it's the look of fear on Jr.'s face or maybe it's the strange way he captioned the picture on Twitter.
Sounds more like a guy bragging about getting backstage and hanging with his favorite band instead of genuinely being happy that you are spending time with your father.
He's your Dad, not #POTUS!
One Twitter user decided to sarcastically congratulate Jr. on the marvelous opportunity to get a photo with his father.
People on Twitter definitely noticed there was something odd going on. They were just divided on what it was. Some thought Jr. looked a bit stressed, or even downright frightened.

Is it me or does he have that rabbit in the headlights look, like he’s thinking” is he gonna throw me under the bus?”— Stephen (@ArtisticTrucker) January 2, 2018
The question did come up if Jr. had to pay the $750 ticket price to see his dad.
Wondering whether he had to pay for a ticket like the others...— Chad Smith (@chadthecook) January 2, 2018
A few kind souls actually felt sad that a son would have to fawn over his own dad.

I’ll bet Donny makes his kids call him POTUS now, and they’re not allowed to call him dad.— Deb Latka (@DebLatka) January 1, 2018
To be fair the old man is always all over his sister. No wonder he’s excited to be around his dad.— Derek Rau (@derekspeedrau) January 1, 2018
The only way he gets his father's approval is being a fanboy...— David Harper (@DWHarper) January 1, 2018

But the hands down winner of the photo op is this guy—
Why is there always some guy in the background with a faint look of despair on his face?— HistoryWoman (@HelenRBarton) January 1, 2018
Let's home one day Jr. gets the much needed love from his dad, so he can stop being his number one fan! We wouldn't want this to happen—
he has to make sure daddy doesn't forget him and put someone else in the will— Josh (@JustSomeJosh) January 1, 2018
