Another day, another Donald Trump Jr Twitter fail that is so idiotic it's actually hard to conceive how this man actually manages to get anything done.

It's been just under a week since Donald Trump was found not guilty of colluding with Russian authorities, and the president has started to gloat about it by attacking the so-called 'fake news media' on Twitter.

On Friday, he went after both The New York Times and The Washington Post for their coverage of the Mueller probe, which resulted in journalists from both newspapers receiving the highly respected Pulitzer Prize, which Trump now thinks should be revoked.

By now, this type of rhetoric from Trump isn't surprising. We get it, you won. Show some humility and move on.

In an attempt to please his dear old dad, Don Jr weighed in with one he must have thought was a zinger but he only managed to own himself... again.

You see Don, they do give out Pulitzer Prizes for Fiction. They've been giving them out on a yearly basis since 1918, with the likes of Edith Wharton, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Harper Lee and Junot Diaz picking up the award.

It literally takes two seconds to Google 'Pulitzer Prize for Fiction'. Look, Don, here's the official website for the award. It's really not hard to look these things up before you start tweeting.

Anyway, as you can imagine, Don Jr found himself getting roasted again for his inability to do some basic research and it's hard not to find some joy in the privileged 41-year-old being dragged all over Twitter.

That last tweet is from the author Viet Thanh Nguyen, whose 2016 novel The Sympathizer literally won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. We doubt Don Jr has read it...
