‘You Never Served’: Trump Jr. Mocked for Tweet Claiming Troops Refusing Vaccine Will Get ‘Re-Education’
Donald Trump Jr. is being mocked after retweeting a post from the far right wing website The Daily Caller that claims troops refusing the Military’s mandatory coronavirus vaccination program will go through “re-education.”
While most Americans assume when the Military gives an order it will be followed, Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby, a retired rear admiral, told reporters troops refusing to be vaccinated who don’t have a religious objection or medical excuse “will be offered a chance to sit down with a physician, and have that physician, communicate to them, the risks that they’re taking by continuing to not want to take the vaccine.”
“They will also be offered a chance to sit down with their chain of command, and their leadership, to talk about the risks that their objection will impose on the unit, and on the force and on their teammates.”
According to The Daily Caller, that is “re-education,” a term associated with communistic and totalitarian dictatorships.
Trump Jr. clearly agrees.
Wow. Re-education? Already? This is all happening faster than anyone could have imagined. https://t.co/xehjAU7Krm

Like his father, Don Jr. never served a day in the military. But in his 2019 book “Triggered” he writes that during a visit to Arlington National Cemetery he “thought of all the attacks we’d already suffered as a family, and about all the sacrifices we’d have to make to help my father succeed — voluntarily giving up a huge chunk of our business and all international deals to avoid the appearance that we were ‘profiting off the office.’”
He was widely mocked for the tweet:
Verbal counseling for disobeying a direct order is what you call “re-education”?
I think you’re missing a trick here, Junior.
You should be talking about how the military has gone soft. They used to punish people for insubordination, right?

When you sign up for the military you are US government property until your four year service is rendered, every soldier gets inoculated including Elvis, educate yourself

WTF is wrong with you? If the administration said the sun shines during the day you’d whine and claim it only shines at nighttime.
Go do another line.
George Washington mandated that every member of the US army get vaccinated. If founding fathers understood the value of a healthy army why is it so hard for you?

Considering your own privileged education didn’t stick, it’s not surprising you don’t understand what re-education actually is or how to recognize it (hint: it ain’t this).

Don’t worry @DonaldJTrumpJr . In order to be re-educated, you must first be educated. You’re safe.
