The world has shooting to thank for the Eric Trump we know today.

On Monday, President Trump's middle son responded to a Fox & Friends tweet about a New Jersey high school that allegedly suspended students over a photo taken at a gun range. Shooting guns "was a big part of my youth — it kept me away from drinking/drugs, taught me safety, discipline, consentration [sic], and so many other positive life lessons," he tweeted.

Several Twitter users helpfully pointed out that shooting didn't help Trump with his spelling, and also blasted him for a 2012 hunting trip to Zimbabwe, where he was photographed alongside his brother Donald Trump Jr., holding a dead leopard. Catherine Garcia
