They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, so it’s no real surprise that Donald Trump Jr. has followed in his father’s footsteps of demeaning women, being a complete sexist pig, and general all-around a**hole. Well, that’s not entirely true– just kidding, yes it is.
As the election nears, more details about who Donald Trump Jr. really is have come to light.
For instance, in 2011 he tweeted out:
Ever notice that if u get a herd of mothers together they arent physically capable of talking about anything but birth pregnancy & diapers?
— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) July 31, 2011
Yes, you got us, Donny. We just stampede around town in herds talking about baby poop and birthing small humans. I often wish there was something else we could talk about, but unfortunately our tiny pea brains do not afford us that luxury.
And where Donald Trump is inappropriately fixated on how beautiful his daughter Ivanka is, Donny Jr. apparently inherited the same incestuous tendencies, only directed toward his mother. NY Mag reported that when his mother remarried in 2008, he toasted the happy couple and boasted about his mother’s “great boobs.”
But I mean, who here hasn’t talked about their own mother’s boobs, really? It’s only natural. Or at least it is when you’re a Trump.
The Huffington Post reported that Don Jr. spoke in depth about his support for gay marriage. That has nothing to do with his feelings toward women, right? Well, it does when you’re Donald Trump Jr:
“I think there was a time in my life, probably in college, that I wished every guy was gay, because it just meant more women for me! I don’t know why you guys have a problem with this thing! I think it’d be great! I wish everyone was gay!”
I do feel a little bad for him, but hey, at least he has the self-awareness to know that the only way he’s getting action is if he was literally the last straight man on earth. And even then, it’s debatable.
Oh, and just for good measure here are some other fun facts about him:
Back in March, he did an interview with radio host James Edwards, a known white supremacist who has said in the past that slavery was a good thing, and that interracial sex was a bad thing. He claimed later he didn’t know about Edwards’ past comments.
He spoke out against the pro-life movement, going so far as to say he doesn’t think it should be included in the Republican platform:
“Honestly, for me, abortion, I don’t get it. I don’t even understand how it’s a political issue. I don’t understand how there is one issue for voters for that. I don’t understand how you can tell someone what they can or can’t do. And I’m sort of the same way with [gay marriage]. … I can’t buy into the abortion argument. I wish the Republicans would drop it as part of their platform.”
Like father, like son.
Another similarity between the dynamic duo? Retweeting white supremacists. Some of the worse ones include retweeting a Holocaust denier, someone who said being gay is a “birth defect,” and that Jewish people are not American.
He also proposed to his wife in a mall so he could get the engagement ring for free. I’m sure his wife was super impressed with this brilliant, creative proposal and married him for love and absolutely no other reason.
Look, sometimes kids go off the rails and do not follow in the footsteps of their parents. Both Reagan and Carter had famously wild kids. The problem for Trump (and Trump Jr.) is that as far as we can tell, Trump Jr.’s behavior was directly learned from his father.
