Poor Junior

Donald Trump taught his children to fight dirty and win, no matter the cost.


Those who know and have studied Donald Trump Sr. and the grown children running his empire while he’s president—Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric—say the family is guided by their father’s creed of winning at all costs and never admitting mistakes.


“He doesn’t like failure and mistakes, and he doesn’t accept them,” says a source who has had business dealings with Trump. “You have to justify your existence to be in his realm.”


Long outshone by his sister—first at the Trump Organization and now in the White House, where she and her husband, Jared Kushner, have West Wing offices and White House titles—Don Jr. has had a harder time adapting to life after the election.


Most weekends, he escapes Trump Tower Manhattan to a rustic cabin upstate with his wife, Vanessa, and their five children. He’s a regular at the Riverside Café in Roscoe, New York, where the manager says Trump Jr. is “good people,” doesn’t seek attention, and “never has his hair slicked back like he does on TV.”

Oh, wow. What a great guy.

It is conceivable that everything Junior does is to win his father's praise. Reports of his pre-teen years are that he turned his back on his father when his parents divorced. Maybe he has to work harder to get and stay in Daddy's good graces. At any rate, he's still a privileged, lying asshole.
A friend of the Trump brothers tells PEOPLE they hate their role as First Sons: “Eric and Don, they never wanted this.”
So why participate so fully?
Adds a source in their circle: “Don can’t do any deals, because he’ll be overly scrutinized. He just goes to work every day and is miserable.”
I'd use that word to describe him, too.
Whatever his personal and legal predicament, Don Jr. will remain loyal to his father, say his friends.

“The loyalty within this family is insane,” says a family friend especially close to Don Jr. and Eric. “They would never speak against their dad.”

Adds the source in the brothers’ circle, “You can’t bite the hand that feeds you, but he [Don Jr.] can’t wait for these four years to be over.”
And be glad he isn't spending some of them in the pokey.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving guy.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
