    Donald Trump Jr., Ted Cruz Take Instagram Photo with Obama Cookie

    Donald Trump Jr., Ted Cruz Take Instagram Photo with Obama Cookie


    18 Dec 2017

    Donald Trump Jr. posted an Instagram photo of himself with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) holding a cookie with a distorted image of former President Barack Obama’s face on it, and many writers are outraged.

    “With friends like these… some good friends decided that while my birthday is not for 2 weeks that they would get me an early 40th birthday cake. And what birthday is complete without an Obama cake?” Trump Jr. posted Sunday on Instagram.

    Trump Jr. was in Texas celebrating his 40th birthday with a few friends, including Cruz, and had received the cake-like cookie as an early birthday present.

    The post has gone viral, gaining more than 33,000 likes on the social networking app.

    Some left-leaning writers and political consultants, however, seem to be triggered by Trump Jr.’s latest Instagram post.

    Lisa Ryan, a writer for the New Yorker, claimed Monday morning that the Trump Organization executive vice president and the Texas senator “cannot stop obsessing over former President Barack Obama.”

    Others, such as pollster Matt McDermott, called Trump Jr. “obnoxiously racist” for taking the photo and questioned whether the image was really Obama’s face:

    1. Don Jr. is obnoxiously racist.
    2. That's Ajit Pai, not Obama.
    3. That's a cookie, not a birthday cake.
    4. Gonna feel so good to beat Ted Cruz.

    ThinkProgress editor Judd Legum also chimed in, tweeting out the photo with the caption, “What is wrong with these people?”:

    NBC’s Katie Engelhart also gave a sarcastic Twitter hot-take of the photo:

    Absolutely normal / inoffensive that son of sitting president would eat a cake adorned with the image of Barack Obama. From the classy Instagram account of @DonaldJTrumpJr.

    This is not the first time the president’s son has been criticized for his social media posts. Trump Jr. was denounced for a tweet in which he said he would take half of his daughter’s candy and give it to a kid who stayed home, adding that “it’s never to [sic] early to teach her about socialism”:

    I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism.
