On the day his father became the third U.S. president to be impeached, people were reminding Donald Trump Jr. about a tweet he posted three years ago, mocking Bill Clinton about impeachment.
The "deplorables" comment was in reference to then-candidate Hillary Clinton describing half of Trump supporters as a "basket of deplorables." Specifically, she cited those who she said were "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic."
Trump used it as a rallying cry and his loyal supporters have adopted and embraced the moniker.
The day after the comments, Donald Trump Jr. posted the tweet, noting that Hillary Clinton's husband was the second impeached U.S. president.
On Wednesday, Trump Jr's father became the third. The House of Representatives adopted two articles of impeachment against Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
People on Twitter were quick to remind Trump Jr. about his comments, with many posting Thursday morning's newspaper headlines.
