It can't be easy being Donald Trump Jr. Your name is Donald Trump, you're the son of Donald Trump and you occasionally seem to struggle with some pretty basic concepts.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree and Trump Jr. felt sufficiently riled by what he was seeing on Twitter last night to express his feelings about the controversial net neutrality repeal.

There are a couple of glaring errors here that people have drawn attention to. Firstly, the President's son appears not to know how to spell the word "neutrality". Even more worryingly, however, he seems confused as to which President appointed the current chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.

Obama's FCC chairman

Filled with Christmas spirit and eager to help, people were delighted to fill him in.

Trump Jr. was referring to the protests by net neutrality proponents who were outraged by the repeal of a two-year-old set of rules passed during the Obama administration to protect consumers against internet service providers taking advantage.

The trolls shouldn't get too cocky though; Don Junior can handle himself, as Jimmy Kimmel pointed out recently.
