Ex-President Donald Trump’s son shared what appeared to be a screenshot showing a successful unsubscribe. Checked was a box explaining it was because “the emails are inappropriate.”
“Second Gentleman” — the formal moniker for Emhoff — was underlined.
Trump captioned his post with the #unsubscribe hashtag.
The provenance of the photo is unknown.
But critics quickly took the ex-president’s progeny to task, with many of them just very, very puzzled by the tweet:
What did you find inappropriate, about a newsletter for which you signed up?

If the problem is who it’s from then why’d you subscribe in the first place

Look what I can do, Daddy!
I can SUBSCRIBE and then UNSUBSCRIBE from an email. Am I a good boy now, Daddy? Please say I’m a good boy!
I hashtagged! I can’t believe it! This feels so goodly! https://t.co/CVbwTV50e3
