Donald Trump Jr. celebrates his 40th birthday in two weeks. To kick off the birthday festivities, several friends held an early birthday party for Don Jr. at a Dallas restaurant. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz attended the party.

Because it’s funny, someone brought a cookie cake with the likeness of President Obama from his iconic “Hope” poster iced on the front. The two posed for a picture with the giant cookie, Don Jr. posted it to Instagram, and then the internet lost its mind, hurling Racist™ accusations and the like.

How in the hell is a cookie cake with an iconic picture of a former president Racist™? That’s a fabulous question and one none of the accusers have bothered to answer.

And then there’s a whole world of cookie truthers:

Dream on, pal:

Taking the ridiculousness to the next level, the owner of the restaurant where Don Jr.’s birthday shindig was held publicly apologized.

From the Houston Chronicle:

Restaurant owner Stephan Courseau took to Instagram the next day, writing that he felt “betrayed and sad” by the fact that guests used his restaurant, Le Bilboquet, “as a platform to promote, disrespect, and spread hatred.”

Racist cookies. What a ridiculous time to be alive.
