Like father, like son. When responding to an NBC journalist about how the White house could justify releasing information on the FBI, Donald Trump Jr. replied with a tweet, as is the Trump way.
Apparently the press only likes their information "leaked" from unverified sources rather than released openly from congress... I think it will be tough for them to sell their "democracy dies in dankness" byline with this kind of logic. https://t.co/fXHv0UjLtX— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) February 1, 2018
According to the dictionary, "dankness" means:
1.) Unpleasantly moist or humid; damp and, often, chilly
2.) Slang. (of marijuana) excellent; high quality
3.) Slang. (of an internet meme) passe or cliched: out of touch; having missed the cultural zeitgeist
You heard it from the President's son himself. No one could let this one slide:
"Democracy Dies In Dankness" is the name of my new mixtape— Rob Sheridan (@rob_sheridan) February 1, 2018
If only Don Jr, or Sr, for that matter, engaged in occasional “dankness” they’d both be wayyyy more chill and we’d all be a lot less angry about the situation.— Dan Burkhardt (@TheDanBurk) February 1, 2018
A mix tape wasn't the only piece of art this tweet inspired:
Don Jr. played it cool for a change, admitting he made a mistake but also saying it was a good mistake to make:
It's good to see some humility from the Trumps.
