By now, you’ve probably seen the damning email chain between Donald Trump Jr. and music publicist Rob Goldstone regarding Russia’s attempt to harm the Clinton campaign.
Trump Jr. released the emails ahead of the New York Times this morning, because he wanted to prove he was a liar himself, I guess….?
This was, naturally, a hot topic at Tuesday White House Press Briefing, and Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had the following, albeit brief, statement from President Trump on the whole mess:
“My son is high quality person, and I applaud his transparency,” Trump said in the missive.
Uh … that’s an interesting way to put it.
Not to worry though – Twitter had some equally “high quality” reactions:
“High-quality” is how you talk about wood flooring, not your son.

Isn’t calling some1 a “high-quality person” a phrase u use when ur breaking up with them and you say things like “it’s not you, it’s me.”

my son is a high-quality person, made from a state-of-the-art blend of synthetic fibers and hair cream

Guys I just want to applaud my high-quality son’s transparency after he’s been caught lying, badly, publicly, multiple times.

With his obsession with “genes” and “breeding,” calling Don Jr a”high-quality person” is just Trump complimenting himself

SCENE VII. A tent in the French camp. LEAR on a bed asleep.
CORDELIA: Sir, do you know me?

if your dad ever refers to you as a “high-quality person,” just know you are NOT getting the house in the will

Donald Trump Jr. is “high quality” the same way Trump steaks or an education from Trump U are “high quality.”

We can only hope Trump Jr.’s eventual testimony will be just as high quality as his handling of his emails.
