Convict's Brother Blasts Donald Trump On Twitter

Carl Pistorius still believes the punishment metted on his brother was "enough" for what he did careless what Trump thinks.

Oscar Pistorius has already began serving his five years sentence behind bars for negligently killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013 but his punishment early this week sparked a heated argument on social media.

One man who joined the angry protesters on Twitter was billionaire Donald Trump. He questioned the sentencing and even called Judge Masipa's decision "ridiculous" before calling her a "moron".

It was obvious he wanted the South African athlete is stay in jail for longer than just 5 years - or 10 months as some legal experts suggest.

Well, the Paralympian’s brother, Carl Pistorius was quick to defend his sibling against Trump. He posted:

"Buddy, your self righteousness or money wont save you @ - time to consider eternity."

He also told ITV News that regardless of today’s outcome, he, his sister Aimee and Oscar would “stand together and continue to stand together”.

According to him, the Oscar portrayed in court by the prosecutors wasn't the brother he knew. He told the TV:

"I can't relate to the Oscar that's been portrayed by the prosecution... Oscar growing up, up until now, is the same person. He's bold, he's brave, he's got courage, he's got charisma, he's exciting and fun, thoughtful and intelligent and has been the perfect fit as a middle child between us three siblings."

Well, that same charismatic Oscar committed murder and is now in jail!
