There is little doubt that President Trump is loathed by the liberal left. He is undeniably one of the least popular Commanders in Chief that the Washington Swamp has ever seen. And, believe it or not, it appears as though he’s even got the Deep State a little rattled.
But, even with this multitude of enemies, there are some lines that we still don’t expect to see crossed. On Saturday night, Twitter crossed a big one.
Robert Trump, younger brother of President Trump, died Saturday night, the White House confirmed in a statement from the president. He was 71.
“It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight,” the president wrote. “He was not just my brother, he was my best friend. He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again. His memory will live on in my heart forever. Robert, I love you. Rest in peace.”take our poll - story continues below
The president had traveled to New York on Friday to visit his ailing brother. A senior administration official had said the president “has a very good relationship with his brother and his brother is very special to him.”
Robert, who died just 11 days before what would have been his 72nd birthday, had reportedly spent more than a week in the intensive care unit at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City earlier this summer.
Soon, and almost unbelievably, “wrong Trump” was trending.

The trending topic enraged some Twitter users, who leapt to the President’s defense.
Donald Trumps brother DIED, and #WrongTrump is trending pretty much stating it should’ve been Donald instead. just because someone doesn’t fit your political agenda, doesn’t mean you should wish DEATH upon them??? praying for the Trump family rn.

The fact that #WrongTrump is trending makes me sick to my stomach. Y’all are despicable and hateful and everything wrong with human kind.
