Donald Trump Jr., who failed to win the hearts of Millennial voters with his creepy sibling group shot, was back at it on Twitter last night, making a grotesque analogy that likened people in need to poisoned candy.

Looking at this tweet, you might groan at the number of retweets.

It even hit that point where you didn’t need to mention Trump or Skittles to clock DJTJ’s hateful tweet.

Early this morning, Skittles did respond, and with more class than the Trumps have managed to muster during their entire campaign.
