Remember Michael Flynn? If you don't, it's totally understandable, because he's kind of in hiding now. He was the retired United States Army Lieutenant who was chosen by Trump to be the National Security Advisor. Trump was a huge supporter of Flynn. Well, for a few days.
The Donald's opinion of Flynn most likely soured after Flynn resigned from office amidst controversy during the whole Trump-Russia investigation scandal. There could be many factors that lead to his departure, but most of them don't seem too good for Flynn - like that he may have lied to the Pentagon about his ties to Russia.
And because it seems like the Trump administration believes that a bunch of US reporters are more dangerous to the security of other countries than elected officials possibly colluding with other nations, specifically ones that have shown a disdain for America and were once involved a certain war of the cold variety not to long ago, it only makes sense that Michael Flynn's son, Michael Flynn Jr. would send out a tweet like this.
Twitter didn't agree, and let Flynn Jr. know pretty quickly what they thought of his question.
No, but you & your dad arguably should. Have fun in prison.— Bot Buster (@williamlegate) August 23, 2017
As you can see, some of the responses were absolutely savage. Like this poll that, as of now, has a 98% vote ratio of Flynn Jr. "absolutely" being a dumbass. And 97% percent of people saying his father is going to prison.
Others straight-up called Flynn Sr. a traitor.
I didn't know treason ran in the family. Have they found the gene for it yet?— Zachary Elwood (@apokerplayer) August 23, 2017
Other people have already commented on your dad's treason and likely prison term, so I'll just add: props for losing your own poll.— Richie Thomas (@richiethomas80) August 23, 2017
Others pointed out that Flynn Sr. possibly wouldn't survive a thorough investigation from the FBI under Mueller's lead.
While some just provided heartfelt advice.
Which might be the best course of action for Flynn Jr., you know, because of the whole treason thing.
