“Luckily these students wont [sic] likely have to tackle issues more stressful than a yummy chicken sandwich in their lives… Oh Wait #triggered”.
That, folks, is presidential offspring Donald Trump Jr.’s response to LGBT students at Duquesne University being justifiably upset over their school’s decision to allow anti-LGBT franchise Chick-fil-A on campus.

Junior tweeted this out just this morning, along with a link to an article from a website founded by far right-winger Tucker Carlson: “University’s LGBT Students ‘Fear’ Arrival Of Chick-fil-A“.
With so much happening in the world and in the U.S. right now, you would think Trump Jr. wouldn’t even have the time to chime in on such things. But it would seem he was more than happy to make time to mock young and vulnerable LGBT people.
Just a brief reminder about Chick-fil-A’s vile anti-gay history: The fast food chain has donated over $5 million to “organizations (including a certified hate group) that, among other things, depict gay people as pedophiles, want to make ‘gay behavior’ illegal, and even say gay people should be ‘exported’ out of America,” according to the Huffington Post.
Fortunately, Twitter has responded something fierce.
@DonaldJTrumpJr Super cool of you to take some time off from grifting to tweet about them. Thanks for your leadership.

@DonaldJTrumpJr Great that you're diminishing the homophobic nature of a company and isolation of a group of AMERICANS to a chicken sandwich.
