Donald Trump Jr. Likens Sacrifices Of Fallen Troops To Those Made By His Family

President Donald Trump’s eldest son drew scorn for how he described a visit to Arlington National Cemetery the day before his father’s inauguration in January 2017 in his new book “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.”

“I rarely get emotional, if ever. I guess you’d call me hyper-rational, stoic,” wrote Trump Jr. “Yet, as we drove past the rows of white grave markers, in the gravity of the moment, I had a deep sense of the importance of the presidency and a love of our country.”

He continued:

In that moment, I also thought of all the attacks we’d already suffered as a family, and about all the sacrifices we’d have to make to help my father succeed — voluntarily giving up a huge chunk of our business and all international deals to avoid the appearance that we were ‘profiting off of the office.’

Frankly, it was a big sacrifice, costing us millions and millions of dollars annually. Of course, we didn’t get any credit whatsoever from the mainstream media, which now does not surprise me at all.

I think I hate that smarmy bastard the most.

5. I'm pretty sure nobody anywhere ever called him "hyper-rational, stoic"

I'm surprised those words are in his vocabulary.

7. Poor Don Jr. - No matter what outrageous crap he spews in support of his dreadful father,

his daddy is never going to love him. Sad.

11. Worthless little slimeball!

See all those graves, asshole? Every one of them holds a patriot. You and your family can never be buried at Arlington. Think about why that is...

12. I suppose they have figured out that Ivanka

was ineffectual, and everyone was laughing at her. Now they are trotting out her rotten brother.

Let's continue to scorn him, and laugh at him as well.
