Donald Trump Jr. appealed for questions to ask his father, Donald Trump, when they commentate on Evander Holyfieldâ€™s boxing comeback Saturday â€” and received a slew of critical suggestions heâ€™s unlikely to pose anytime soon.
The ex-presidentâ€™s pay-per-view gig â€• which costs viewers $49.99 â€• has drawn fierce criticism from both sides of the aisle, given how it falls on the same day as the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
In a video that Trump Jr. shared to Twitter on Friday, he said heâ€™d definitely be asking his father about aliens when theyâ€™re in the commentary booth and urged people to send him other ideas for what to talk about.
The biggest fight of the year this Saturday. My Dad – President Trump- & I, are commentating and weâ€™re going to have some fun.
Iâ€™ll finally pushing him on the burning question.
Are aliens real and whatâ€™s up with Area 51? Shoot me some other questions here!

â€œIs he going to advise the dude who gets knocked out to call the fight rigged?â€ cracked one Twitter user, referencing the former presidentâ€™s penchant for pushing lies about the 2020 election.
â€œWill he attempt to rewrite history and tell us all about his bravery on 9/11 before or during the fight?â€ added another, a dig at Trumpâ€™s fanciful recollections of the attacks.
How is this event in any way appropriate on the 20th anniversary of 9/11?
