While President Donald Trump and first daughter—and First Daughter—Ivanka Trump hold positions in the United States government, other family members continue business as usual.
For first son—and First Son—Donald Trump Jr., that means selling things with TRUMP slapped on it as Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization.
And occasional modeling duties.
But Don Jr.'s latest effort to sell himself online suffered a bit of a wardrobe malfunction.

So many questions...
- Is that a preworn shirt or do they all come with complimentary Trump stains on the collar?
- Did someone drool?
- Is that beard seepage?
- Does Don Jr. not own a mirror?
- Did no one check the styling or photos before posting them?
- Is this how most alleged multibillion dollar companies operate a product social media campaign?
Many people online skipped the questions and went straight for Don Jr.'s throat.
Of his shirt, the throat area of the shirt.

Many looked past the shirtstain—there's an R in that last word—to the long history of the Trump family and military service.

And someone made this astute observation:
nobody owns Don jr harder than Don Jr. https://t.co/ej51E98Wt6— The Warax. 🦛💨 (@The Warax. 🦛💨)1568079656.0
There were fish in the barrel and Don Jr. handed the internet a (proverbial) gun.
Jimmy Kimmel—who looked over the full collection on Jimmy Kimmel Live!—said:
“A camouflage shirt covered in grease stains. You have to admit, they know their customers!"
Kimmel even created a new action figure based on Don Jr.'s look.
