Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara has been taking to Twitter lately, offering the occasional criticism or sarcastic comment on President Donald Trump‘s administration. Trump famously fired Bharara earlier this year, after he had initially appeared to want Bharara to stay on during his administration. Early Tuesday morning Bharara used social media to troll POTUS’ son, Donald Trump Jr.
The younger Trump posted a tweet last week over the holiday, using patriotism related to Independence Day to knock those on the left.
Out of curiosity, what exactly are Big Govt, opprressive taxation, anti 2A left wing socialists celebrating today?

He was implying, of course, that those with leftist ideals don’t value American principles, so naturally they couldn’t appreciate the Fourth of July. Well, Bharara threw it right back at him, albeit a week later.
Well, sadly, many today are now celebrating your apparent misdirection, duplicity, ignorance, arrogance, nonchalance, and comeuppance. https://t.co/zAed69PxYM

This was a clear reference to the report that Trump Jr. had met with a Russian attorney during the campaign, supposedly in an effort to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. Now, Bharara seemed to say, those same leftists whom Trump derided are now taking joy in him getting caught.
This isn’t the first time Bharara’s trolled the Trumps. Just Sunday, after President Trump tweeted about how Vladimir Putin “vehemently denied” having anything to do with interference in the election, Bharara turned the sarcasm up to 11.
When pursuing a corrupt politician, mobster or murderer on strong FBI evidence, if he “vehemently denied it,” we just dropped it usually. https://t.co/d4HqyHQexB
