We began our week with Donald Trump holding forth on history, specifically the invention of transgenderism a few years ago and the state of the Mexican border in 1023. We end our week with Donald Trump, Jr. giving scientific and military advice. It won’t surprise you that the apple has not fallen far from the tree and Junior’s advice is as equally uninformed and bat$hit crazy as his father’s.
Junior does not like the Chinese surveillance balloon sighted over the western United States and Canada.
Junior’s only solution to something he doesn’t like is to figure out a way to shoot it. Ergo, this fine piece of advice to Montana MAGAs.
If Joe Biden and his administration are too weak to do the obvious and shoot down an enemy surveillance balloon perhaps we just let the good people of Montana do their thing… I imagine they have the capability and the resolve to do it all themselves.

Now, if Junior wasn’t busy
getting loaded all the time being an animated guy, he might have a few moments to read a newspaper. Shooting down the balloon was contemplated. It was also discarded as a viable idea because of the danger of falling debris to citizens.
Apparently Junior is under the impression that the “balloon” is a hot air balloon or something, sailing over the hilltops. No, Junior, the freaking thing is up at 60,000 feet, which is substantially higher than most aircraft fly, but admittedly not as high as you are on any given day. Also, it poses no threat — not that you would care, you want to shoot things just on general principle.
By all means, don't let the facts get in the way of your performative bullshit. pic.twitter.com/IkvI9wqNts

There are some other ways to get rid of the balloon, however.
- Injecting it with bleach;
- Using Jewish space lasers on it;
- Nuke Montana and let the mushroom cloud take care of the balloon;
- Wait for it to drift into Florida airspace and aim hurricanes at it.
See, Junior, you just lack imagination, on top of all your other intellectual shortcomings. That said, Junior is pulling down millions for podcasting precisely the idiocy you have heard.
