In case you missed it, Donald Trump, Jr. dropped a piping hot take to Twitter on Monday night comparing Syrian refugees to deadly Skittles.
Here it is in all of its illogical glory…
Skittles wasn’t exactly thrilled about being used in this pretty bad analogy…
So needless to say, all of that led to Skittles becoming a trending topic on Twitter thanks to the MASSIVE amount of jokes that were being made at Junior’s expense.
Here are some of the best reactions…
I feel bad for the Skittles social media team. They didn't ask for this.

Donald Jr: I made a Skittles meme and now I'm trending!
Ivanka: Well dad gave me extra hugs today.
Eric: I drank 3 juice boxes really fast

This metaphor grossly underestimates the conditions under which I am willing to eat an entire bowl of Skittles

To recap, Trump wants Americans to hate:
1. Free speech
2. Due process
3. Medical care for criminal suspects

If you had a bowl of Skittles and told me three would kill me I would think you are not a person who should be allowed to handle candy, Don.

Woke up to a terrorist notice on my phone. Going to bed to "Skittles has issued a statement." Dreams should be interesting tonight.

The real scandal here is why Obama is wasting MY tax dollars on these giant bowls of poisonous Skittles.

JR: “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful?”
If your dad wins, I’ll eat them all.
