Fred Trump Jr. threw a bowl of mashed potatoes on Donny and we are paying the price.

In Mary L. Trump’s book about her family, Too Much and Never Enough, there’s a moment referred to in the index as the “mashed potatoes incident.”

Apparently, young Donald was a major pill almost from birth, undisciplined, rude and nasty to his siblings and his mother. One night at dinner, he was, as usual, picking on his younger brother Robert. He had the boy in tears. Older brother Fred, Jr., then 14, intervened.

“Robert’s crying and Donald’s needling became too much,” Mary Trump writes, “and in a moment of improvised expedience that would become family legend, Freddy picked up the first thing at hand that wouldn’t cause any real damage: the bowl of mashed potatoes.

Everybody laughed and they couldn’t stop laughing. And they were laughing at Donald. It was the first time Donald had been humiliated by someone he even then believed to be beneath him… From then on, he would wield the weapon, never be at the sharp end of it.

1. Ayup.

God forbid I'm ever in a position to talk to that man, but if I am I'm going to peer closely at his hair and ask, "OMG, is that mashed potatoes in your hair?"

2. So we're having to pay

because Little Donnie had to dig mashed potatoes out of his ear.

How pathetic.

5. What a sadistic bully

Banter between siblings is normal but normally you don't enjoy it when you actually cause such level of emotional suffering.

7. I thought it was the humiliation he felt at the WH Correspondents' Dinner

that gave us this nightmare? Maybe when you're that thin-skinned, nasty and neurotic any damn thing can be the genesis of your evil.
