Donald Trump Jr. came out swinging against Bernie Sanders’ boxing skills ― and ended up getting pummeled by Twitter users.

On Thursday, the president’s son tweeted a video of Sanders jokingly showing off his boxing skills at the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky. The clip features Sanders slamming his bare fist into a punching bag, which rebounds and bonks him on the head.

Sanders took the blow with good humor.

But Trump Jr. used the clip to suggest world leaders might do the same if Sanders were to win the 2020 election instead of his dear old dad, Donald Trump.

This wouldn’t exactly strike fear in the minds of our adversaries. Imagine this guy sitting accross the table negotiating with world leaders?

Both politics and boxing can be pretty brutal, but Trump Jr. apparently posted the video before realizing he was setting himself up ― once again ― as a punching bag for Twitter users.

And they were happy to pile on:

Is this better?

I'm trying to wrap my head around the one-two combo of, "god forbid an old man have a sense of humor about himself" and "obviously donald trump is in peek physical condition".

Imagine this guy:

Hilarious that he thinks his obese joke of a dad who needed a golf cart while every other world leader walked strikes fear or respect, we have seen the photos where he is sitting alone while everyone else is talking, making deals while he sits arms crossed and pouts

Try again, Junior! Last weekend we saw your toddler dad @realdonaldtrump at the G7 #SpoiledBratInChief

Maybe this would strike fear in their hearts…

One guy had a pointed question for Trump Jr.

you know who the current president is, right?

And one woman wondered if Trump Jr. wanted a tweet do-over.

I don’t think he got out of that what he intended. 😂😂
