Donald Trump Jr.’s Loch Ness Monster Dig Has People Defending Nessie
“Joe Biden is basically the Loch Ness monster of the swamp,” he declared. “For the past half-century, he’s been lurking around in there. He sticks his head up every now and then to run for president, then he disappears and doesn’t do much in between.”
The reference caused “Loch Ness” to trend on Twitter, where Trump’s critics didn’t appreciate him politicizing the famous cryptid, which is notorious for hiding from everyone, no matter what their politics:
Why is Donald Trump Jr trying to demonise the Loch Ness monster? In *Scotland, or so I’m told, she is considered to be a fairly benign creature that people just really want to see

Loch Ness is lovely as are all the Scottish highland lochs and I will not hear their names uttered by the likes of that piece of rancid blood pudding DTJr. Photo: Sam Fentress pic.twitter.com/VMAvgclBE7

Look, Don Jr. called Biden “the Loch Ness Monster of the Swamp” and I just need to correct the record here. Nessie lived in a lake and she doesn’t deserve this.

Loch Ness is a lake not a swamp, it’s right in the name.
