President Donald Trump’s oldest son tried to make fun of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), saying her jokes don’t land.
He wondered in a tweet (with a typo) why the Democratic presidential candidate is the only one who laughs at her jokes. He called her the “most disingenuous person in politics … after Hillary.”
She shot back at Junior: “You wouldn’t know a joke if one raised you.”

Trump tried to give back as good as he got, responding with a tweet about Harris’ poll numbers.
Based on your tanking poll numbers, what’s definitely a joke is your entire campaign 🤣 Yikes! https://t.co/3vkxo5gUyO pic.twitter.com/oKMCKuscBR
