Ben Meiselas, the lawyer who represented Colin Kaepernick in his case against the NFL, and his two brothers have a knack for delivering viral attack ads aimed at the Trump White House.

Last month, they posted an edited version of Ivanka Trump’s commencement speech, which was cancelled by a university in Kansas. They followed up with a video focusing on GOP lawmakers who have dodged questions relating to some of Trump’s more controversial tweets and actions.

Now they’re out with another, which has already racked up more than 4 million views overnight:

As you can see, the clip flips Donald Trump Jr.’s attacks on Joe Biden — “Gross negligence!” and “sheer incompetence — around and lobs them at the president. “This guy is the epitome of the swamp,” he said. “The entire family have enriched themselves.”

The Meiselas brothers, who run the MeidasTouch.com website , reserved some of their harshest criticisms for a statement that accompanied the video.

“Trump children, propped up in this regime by the bizarre and shameless nepotism seen in banana republic dictatorships, represent the blend of incompetence, entitlement, and cringeworthy hypocrisy that’s propelled America into disaster we’re now in under Trump,” they wrote.

The #ByeDonJr hashtag blew up over night, as the Twitter haters ate up the clip:
