Donald Trump Jr., the son of the President of the United States, criticized comedian Chelsea Handler on Monday, hours after Handler made a joke about his sister-in-law’s pregnancy. The Trumps announced on Monday that Eric Trump and his wife, Lara Yunaska, are expecting their first child. Handler hopes that it is not a boy.

“I guess one of @realDonaldTrump’s sons is expecting a new baby. Just what we need. Another person with those jeans. Let’s hope for a girl,” Handler wrote.

Trump Jr. soon went on the defensive, pointing out that Handler wrote “jeans,” instead of “genes.” He later expanded on his criticism in a longer social media post.

“The liberal elite’s real hatred is hopefully starting to be apparent to mainstream America. (both right and left) Their whole ‘party of tolerance’ nonsense only applies if you fully buy into their dogma, and when you don’t their true colors shine,” Trump Jr. wrote. “Attacking the announcement of someone’s first pregnancy would seem below the belt to most, but sadly that’s no longer the case. As to the ‘hoping it’s a girl’ comment, I wonder if she knows that said ‘jeans’ (aka genes) are passed from the same people whether it’s a girl or a boy???”

Handler eventually chocked up her typo to her being “a little stoned.”
