In new book, Trump Jr. compares his family’s ‘sacrifices’ with veterans buried at Arlington Cemetery

Donald Trump Jr. has a new book out called Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us. The world’s most disappointing son manicured his beard and took a photo. He also had a ghost writer string together a slew of his thoughts on things. Like his father, Trump Jr. is unable to reflect upon anything without determining that the world is out to get him and that he and his clan of rich corrupt friends are being persecuted. Business Insider says Trump Jr. proclaims that a “victimhood complex has taken root in the American left”—in a memoir that spends most of its time having the “author” claim to be the victim of the American left.

Most of this crybaby whining from Junior mirrors what we have come to expect from any conservative pundit or politician. It’s “political correctness,” it’s non-binary gender roles, it’s everybody else that’s ruining America and not the people that have controlled and been scamming Americans for the past five decades. However, as with most of these kinds of conservative victim-porn tomes, there are moments that stand out for their egomania. One such moment is when Junior, evoking what I imagine he believes to be a reflective tone, talks about visiting Arlington National Cemetery a day before Donald Trump’s inauguration.

“I rarely get emotional, if ever. I guess you’d call me hyper-rational, stoic. 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 … 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.'”

Forget the fact that Ivanka and Junior and the whole Trump operation have indeed benefited more than ever before from their namesake’s corrupt regime: The breathtaking narcissism involved in comparing the “sacrifices” made by American war veterans and their families to a mob of untalented, barely coherent spoiled brats is truly vulgar. Maybe Junior was thinking about “sacrificing” $2 million in a settlement over he and his family’s fake charity?

If anything; your father and the rest of your disgusting family should be given the old ‘heave ho’.

Look nobody in that worthless family should be respected. Nothing but a bunch of worthless grifters. And what Trump Jr. needs is a foot up his stupid ass. It’s time for the American people to start telling it like it is. This is a crime family, so damn despicable that even some deplorables find them deplorable. They don’t a damn about anybody but themselves. They are robbing the American people and all we do is sit on our a$$’s and do nothing. It’s time to end this BS.

He is right about one thing, I’m part of the right that he talks about that thrives on hate. I sure do hate this Trump family. Every damn one of them. I’m just totally shock that the Vets hasn’t stepped up to express their concern.

It should be “How the right thrives on hate and wants to silence the left.”

I find it just plain disgusting that this snowflake said anything about the people buried in Arlington. There is no comparison. First there is the fact that you need some connection to armed services to even be buried there. The trump clan never served anywhere. He shouldn’t even be there. Honor and bravery. Not draft dodging and fake heel spurs. 👇👎
