Donald Trump Jr. Slams 'Stupid' Elizabeth Warren, Misquotes Her Mollie Tibbetts Comment on Instagram

President Donald Trump's eldest son Donald Trump Jr. called Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren "stupid" for dodging a question about Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts, who was allegedly slain by an undocumented immigrant. But he misquoted her in his Instagram post.

Trump Jr. posted a screenshot of Warren speaking on CNN Wednesday along with the text, "Asked about Mollie Tibbetts being murdered by an illegal immigrant, Elizabeth Warren says 'I know this is hard' for her family, but they 'have to remember' that we need to focus on 'real problems' like illegal immigrants not being able to see their kids."

In fact, Warren said "we"—not "they," Tibbetts's family—have to remember to focus on where the problems are.

"I'm so sorry for the family here, and I know this is hard not only for her family, but for people in her community, the people throughout Iowa. But one of the things we have to remember," Warren said, "Is we need an immigration system that is effective, that focuses on where real problems are."

While Warren, who went on to say she saw children being taken away from their mothers at the border, was accused of being tone deaf with regard to Tibbetts's death, Trump Jr.'s post twisted her comment to make it appear she called on the family to focus on migrant family separations.

"Yea the real problem is not the murder of a young American girl.?!?! You can't make this crap up," Trump Jr. captioned his Instagram post. "Is the left's platform really defend anyone but actual Americans?"

"I don't know how to interpret it any other way," the first son continued. "How stupid can someone be and how stupid can we be to keep re-electing these Democrats? Time to finally put Americans First!!!"

It is not the first time Trump Jr. has posted incorrect information on Instagram.

Earlier this month, he posted an image of a graphic comparing his father's approval rating to that of former President Barack Obama's with a seemingly glaring Photoshop job placing 50 percent on Trump's rating next to his predecessor's 45 percent as it originally appeared.

"Amazing. I guess there is a magic wand to make things happen and @realdonaldtrump seems to have it. #maga #amreicafirst," Trump Jr. wrote.

Instagram users quickly noticed not only the doctored part of the image, but that Trump Jr. misspelled "America" in his hashtag intended to read "America first."

Trump Jr. took that post down.

Trump Jr. has used Instagram and Twitter to tout the accomplishments of Trump, who once thought his eldest son might turn out to be a "loser," but recently said he's "gotten really good" campaigning for Republicans ahead of the midterm elections and that "my people love him."

The president at a rally Tuesday said that Tibbetts's death "should never have happened" because it was "an illegal alien coming in, very sadly, from Mexico." Trump also said in a tweeted video that her death shows "we need the wall" along the Mexico border and, "we need our immigration laws changed."

This article has been updated to include comments on Tibbetts's death from President Trump.
