43 stunned reactions to Donald Trump Jr.'s damning emails

This is simply extraordinary

On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. released a June 2016 email chain with Rob Goldstone in which the pair set up a meeting between Trump Jr. and a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer. While the decision to publish the chain was apparently a hasty attempt to get ahead of a damning New York Times story that detailed the emails, many observers were left stunned that the president's son published the most concrete evidence yet of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia's government.

In the email exchanges, Goldstone explicitly stated the existence of "official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary [Clinton] and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful" to Trump. "This is obviously very high-level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump," Goldstone wrote.

"If it's what you say I love it," Trump Jr. responded.

Reactions to Trump Jr.'s decision to publish the emails ranged from face-palms to questions about where his lawyers are to hoots of glee. Here are 43 of the best.
