Donald Trump Jr. goes after 'outrage' following net neutrality repeal

Donald Trump Jr. went after critics of the Federal Communications Commission's decision to rescind net neutrality rules, challenging critics to explain net neutrality. “I would pay good money to see all those people complaining about Obama’s FCC chairman voting to repeal #NetNeutality actually explain it in detail,” Trump Jr. tweeted. “I’d also bet most hadn’t heard of it before this week. #outrage.”

Twitter users pounced on Trump Jr. In addition to misspelling neutrality, Trump Jr. was mistaken in referring to Chairman Ajit Pai as "Obama's FCC chairman." Although Pai was appointed to the commission by former President Barack Obama, it was President Trump who made him chairman during his first days in the White House.
