President Donald Trump's Twitter account was unusually quiet Thursday morning, but his son's sure wasn't.

Donald Trump Jr. live-tweeted during former FBI Director James Comey's testimony to the Senate intelligence committee, and he didn't hold back.

Trump Jr. started off the day by retweeting the GOP's "#BigLeagueTruth" campaign, which worked to defend the president during Comey's hearing.

The president's son then issued a tweetstorm disparaging the former FBI director for not doing his job properly.

One of Trump Jr.'s biggest gripes was when Comey leaked his own private memos to the press.

Trump Jr. also pointed out the hearing showed the president was never personally under investigation.

During Trump Jr.'s live-tweeting, others raised the question: Where is his father? 

For the entire morning, the president's @realDonaldTrump account was silent. His last tweet, which had nothing to do with the hearing or Comey, was posted Wednesday morning.

The White House said Trump would have a very busy day during Comey's hearing. The president gave a speech to a religious group during the testimony back in Washington, D.C.

The president's last tweet about Comey was posted May 31. He referred to the investigation as a "Witch Hunt."

Today's Senate hearing went viral on Twitter as #ComeyDay. One of the biggest takeaways was when the former FBI director said he was fired because of "the Russia investigation."
