Because Donald Trump Jr. is a big-game hunter, PETA constantly tries to impugn his reputation.
Their latest tweet to Junior deals with a Halloween costume that runs for a cool $169.
DTJ was ready for the insult – then he shut them down big league.
From Daily Wire:
The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) decided to mock Donald Trump Jr., an avid hunter, by creating a Halloween costume of him with blood dripping down his face as a leopard was posed behind him. But Trump Jr., as the hunter he is, had PETA in his crosshairs and promptly neutered them with a blast of his own.
PETA President Ingrid Newkirk gleefully stated, “There’s nothing more frightful than an entitled ghoul who gets his kicks from gunning down wild animals. This Halloween, PETA will help people poke fun at someone who believes that the world and its wildlife are here for him to take.”
In a twist on the horrific trophy-hunting photo that showed the Trump brothers grinning while clutching the body of a dead leopard – this time the leopard wins! ???? Pre-order PETA’s NEW limited-edition @DonaldJTrumpJr #Halloween costume. https://t.co/4aKD2qglmz pic.twitter.com/vSIJOM48tB

Enter Trump Jr.:
Ironically, there are few orgs in world history that have as much animal blood on their hands as PETA. You hypocrites are literally an animal slaughter factory.

From The Hill:
The $169 “Donald Trump Jr. Hunting Halloween” costume, for which PETA is currently accepting pre-orders on its website, includes a blood-stained camouflage jacket with a name tag that reads “Half-Cocked.” A red cap and a leopard stuffed animal are also part of the get-up, although a listing indicates “prop gun not included.”
PETA says the costume was “inspired by and is a twist on the trophy-hunting photo that showed the Trump brothers grinning over the body of a dead leopard.”
PETA says all profits from costume sales will go to support its work.
During an interview on Saturday, Junior made it clear to President Obama that he needs to stop taking credit for the current booming economy.
“Without question, he’s our best salesman,” Trump Jr. said of Obama on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel. “No one with a brain actually believes he did anything good for our economy or for our foreign policy. Everyone saw that anything he did basically put America at risk and made us weaker. Every time he drew a red line, other countries walked all over it. He did it again, and they walked all over it. Guess what? Countries, whether it’s foreign policy-wise or whether it’s business-wise, they realize you have someone now that actually cares about America in there, that’s actually doing it–not someone who’s going to make us look weak where you can walk all over us because that’s the precedent that he set. There’s a new sheriff in town. We’ve changed all that.”
“The biggest joke I’ve seen in the last two years is Obama claiming credit–trying to claim this economy,” Trump Jr. said, “because his policies of over-taxation, oppressive regulation, guess what? That didn’t do anything. That drove this country into the ground. That led to the worst recovery in the history of probably economics but certainly our country’s history. For him to run around doing this now–there’s a reason why on November 9, 2016, all of those matrices shot up like a rocket. It’s because businesses, employers, people realized you got someone who’s actually going to fight for you, not fight just for special interests, not fight for people in countries that hate our guts, but actually fight for real Americans. Real Americans, their jobs, their companies, their businesses. That’s what happened, and when consumer confidence started going up the day my father won because they knew he wasn’t going to oppress them, everything started following. I want to keep that going; that’s how we get rid of some of the other problems we’re having. That’s how we get rid of unfunded pension liability. That’s how we get rid of some of our deficits, is by producing, having GDP numbers above four percent. Okay, remember when Obama said you need a magic wand to make that happen? Well, abracadabra, Obama. We’re doing it.”
