The eldest son of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump managed to shoot his father in the other foot last night when he claimed that the presidency represented a “step down” in his daddy’s illustrious career.
Trump Jr. told Fox News:
“He hasn’t spent his whole life to be up on a debate stage like a career politician,” Trump Jr. said. “He’s spent his life creating jobs, building things, doing things that would benefit American workers in this country. He’s done that for his whole career. So you know what? He’s learning. He’s learning as he goes. If he was doing this his whole life he’d be the greatest politician in the history of the world.”
“Unlike Hillary Clinton, who’s gotten very rich being a politician, peddling American influence, he hasn’t. This is only a step down. But he wants to make sure that all Americans, all ethnicities and backgrounds, have the same opportunity to do what he’s been able to do: To start a great family, to start a great business.”
Junior wasn’t clear whether or not his dad wanted all Americans to also have the opportunity to sexually assault or harass women, screw over workers, business partners, and contractors, or be smart like him and not pay their fair share in taxes like he did.
Trump’s oldest son also made headlines in September when he retweeted this meme comparing Syrian refugees to poisoned Skittles.
Donald Trump himself made it clear that he had a “very good” life to return to if the American people didn’t realize how lucky they were to have the privilege of electing him into the Oval Office.
“I go back to a very good way of life,” he told CNBC in August. “It’s not what I’m looking to do. I think we’re going to have a victory. But we’ll see.”
Well there you have it, folks, according to the Trumps, we all should be on our hands and knees thanking “the Donald” for his tremendous sacrifice in trying to save our woefully backward country single-handedly.
But don’t worry America; Donald Trump and his snotty sons will probably be around for a long time after he loses the election, when they’ll be Monday morning quarterbacks boasting about the great job he would have done had “the system” not been “rigged” against him.
