During Wednesday night's second Democratic presidential debate, US President Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr, tried to crack a joke. Unfortunately, it backfired on him when American comedy channel, Comedy Central, delivered an epic burn at his expense.
"Comedy Central should really be the host of the next round of these debates. #DemDebate," wrote Donald Trump Jr on Twitter, implying that the Democrats, his father's political rivals, were a joke.
Comedy Central delivered a swift burn in response that has gone quickly viral on the microblogging website.
"Nah, last time there was a joke at a debate it became president," the TV channel replied.
