Donald Trump Jr. – arguably the most idiotic person on the planet – slammed President Obama for rolling back net neutrality on the Internet by appointing Ajit Pai as FCC Chairman, who actually made the decision.
This is what Jr. had to say on the subject:
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. I’d also bet most hadn’t heard of it before this week. #outrage

What he’s really saying is that he himself had no idea what net neutrality was prior to a week ago, and he still doesn’t.
Here’s the problem: it was his equally stupid father who appointed Pai to the position, not Obama.
There’s a tweet for everything with this guy:
Obama’s attack on the internet is another top down power grab. Net neutrality is the Fairness Doctrine. Will target conservative media.

Pai’s edict makes it legal for Internet service providers to charge content providers for preferential access. This means that a company like Verizon can charge Netflix more for faster streaming speeds than Hulu, who as a result suddenly provide reduced video resolution and longer buffering times unless they pay an equal or even higher fee.
Content providers don’t like this because it forces them to compete with each other and risk losing subscribers. Here’s Facebook’s take on the subject:
Today’s decision from the Federal Communications Commission to end net neutrality is disappointing and harmful. An open internet is critical for new ideas and economic opportunity — and internet providers shouldn’t be able to decide what people can see online or charge more for certain websites.
Hey, it’s all good as long as Jr. can still access his animal porn.
