London Mayor: Donald Trump Jr's Tweets Are Not A Priority

Donald Trump, Jr. is an idiot, but you knew that. USA Today reports:

Donald Trump Jr. is under fire for tweeting hours after Wednesday's London attack a comment from London Mayor Sadiq Khan from a month ago that terror attacks had become "part and parcel" of life in a global city.

Trump Jr. tweeted : "You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan." The tweet included a link to a Sept. 22 story from Britain's Independent newspaper that includes the quote from Khan asking Londoners to be vigilant following a bombing in New York City. Khan was quoted the day after three bombs exploded in N.Y. and nearby towns, wounding 29 people.
