Don Jr’s July 4 pic of Trump riding bald eagle mocked, Internet points out one attacked his dad
In August 2015, as Time magazine’s Person of the Year runner-up, Trump agreed to pose with a bald eagle for a cover story, which attempted to peck him
July 4 celebrations can go overboard, but it would seem that Donald Trump Jr has raised the bar for that. “Rolling into Fourth of July BBQ like a boss. #4thofJuly #FourthofJuly,” the former president’s son tweeted, sharing a rather odd photo.
The photo showed former President Donald Trump riding on the back of a bald eagle as it flew over Mount Rushmore. Each of the presidents who are carved into the mountain had been altered so that they appeared to be wearing "Make America Great Again" hats.
Obviously, this was not well-received. “They tried to make him go to rehab but he said no, no,no,” tweeted one person in response. Another said, “Don Jr isn’t the only one flying high!” One person wrote, “Isn't it a little early for this much coke and cocktails, Jr.?”

This is not the first time it has been insinuated by the internet that Don Jr was not sober. Earlier this year in April, when Donald Trump Jr on Instagram was talking about YouTuber Jake Paul and ex-MMA fighter Ben Askren’s then-upcoming fight, many said he looked “drugged up”.
Last year, when Don Jr took the stage on the first night of the Republican National Convention on August 24, 2020, his name along with the word "cocaine" started trending on Twitter. People started posting hilarious reactions and memes saying his eyes drooped during his speech.
However, Don Jr hit back at his critics by responding to one of the memes that showed Kermit the Frog snorting white powder. He retweeted the meme with a response, saying, "You must have me confused with Hunter Biden." However, he did not elaborate further. It was largely assumed that there wasn't any particular reason behind his particular response except for the fact that Hunter Biden was one of his regular political targets.
Then, on September 21, 2020, Don Jr appeared on a video shared by the official Trump Campaign Twitter account. The video said, “The Radical Left is laying the groundwork to steal the 2020 Election from our president. We need you to join ARMY FOR TRUMP’s election security operation!” Following the video, many began mocking it, claiming Don Jr looked inebriated.
But among the other responses to his July 4 celebration tweet were GIFs of Trump reacting to an actual bald eagle. “That's a pretty bad attempt at photoshop. We've all seen the original. Thanks for trying, Jr,” tweeted one person. Others just responded to the tweet with the GIFs.

In August 2015, as Time magazine’s Person of the Year runner-up, Trump agreed to pose with a bald eagle for a cover story. The idea came from Martin Schoeller, an award-winning portrait photographer. The eagle, called Uncle Sam, who was 27 years old, did not seem to like Trump and even attempted to peck him. Thankfully, Trump dodged his bite.
