Don Jr. Slammed for ‘Loser Teachers’ Comment: ‘At Least I Never Had to Ask My Daddy for a Pardon’
Donald Trump Jr. is drawing flak after he disparaged “loser teachers” by claiming they’re trying to foist socialist ideals on pupils throughout America.
The president’s son opened up for his father on Monday night for the rally they held in El Paso, TX. At one point, Trump Jr. gave a shoutout to young conservatives while blasting teachers who are supposedly trying to “indoctrinate” them into embracing socialism.
“Keep up that fight, bring it to your schools,” Trump Jr. said. “You don’t have to be indoctrinated by these loser teachers that are trying to sell you on socialism from birth.”
Trump Jr.’s remarks drew attention online, and now he’s getting panned by those who took his comments as a smear on educators.
-Every single thing he says is an insanity-level lie.
-Don Jr. calling teachers losers is straight heartbreaking.

It’s true I dont make a lot of money, but I earned it on my own (with the help of some loser socialist teachers at the University.)

My wife teaches at a school predominantly serving poor and minority kids. She’s not a union member. She doesn’t teach about socialism.
But she sure heard “loser teachers” https://t.co/IWM8a8vkBH

“Loser teachers”? Before my shot & killed herself, she was a special needs teacher. Without teachers investing their time in me, I wouldn’t be where I am. When you get a chance, thank a teacher b/c too many people fail to do so pic.twitter.com/ZFVkHOJ8Ae
