Don Trump Jr in quarantine: Happy at home, cleaning his guns.

Comments on Twitter blew up Saturday after Donald Trump Jr posted a perky Instagram video message announcing he’s “got the ’rona,” and would be spending his time in quarantine “cleaning my guns” and watching Netflix.

The president’s son looked a bit tousled and puffy-faced in the Friday message that appeared to be from his home. But he pointed out that he didn’t have the “red eyes like they claimed I had for apparently using cocaine” before his Republican National Convention speech. Though he blew off the rumors, the comment highlighted his awareness of social media chatter regarding his erratic interviews.

Trump Jr said he was completely asymptomatic so far and that his positive test for COIVD-19 earlier this week was a total surprise. 

He asked for Netflix recommendations while under quarantine, which he said he’s observing out of an “abundance” of caution. Other than watching Netflix, he explained, “There are only so many guns I can clean before that gets bor[ing].”

Lots of critics laughed at the macho posturing of the comment, while others were disturbed by the number of guns he may own.
