Better than what is normally being grasped-for regardless of approval.

Do you think Trump knows that Half-Scoop is really McMahon's kid?

I could possibly feel sorry for Jr. if he wasn't such a cretinous asshole. You could have been Luke Skywalker, Junior, if you would have had the courage to rebel against the dark side.

Decades of neglect and child abuse will fark up anyone. I have some pity for him, but he's still a monster. He seems like he would have been a good kid if he hadn't been quasi-raised and ultimately mentored by Donald Trump. You have to remember that it's not easy to say "fark you Dad" to someone like Donald Trump who is a master of mentally manipulating people.

All those rich kids are victims of abuse in some form. Imagine being completely surrounded all your life by people who think you are less of a person if you don't have money.

Anyway I digress, this whole Father's Day interview is a sh*t show.

I agree. He made a conscious decision to turn himself into an out and proud RWNJ to earn Daddy's praise. OTOH, there are innocent animals all over the world that are happy he is otherwise engaged.

And, of course, this belongs in every half-scoop thread...

It's really grotesque that people with that much power are so pathetically insecure.

"In this instance, the scene would have been grimly poignant: Donald Trump would get up and exit the room. He would leave his oldest son behind, in a room with an empty chair. His son would tell the empty chair why his dad was the greatest man in the world."

trump can't even empty chair as well as Obama.

Two thoughts come to mind.

Tthe higher you go, the farther you have to fall.
And easy come, easy go.

I don't think he wants his father's approval at all. I think the smartest thought he ever had was they day he realized he would be completely farked if he got written out of the will. (this revelation likely occurred a few moments after someone informed him what a will was, and those words slowly soaked through the walnutshell inside his skull).

I don't think he's seeking approval, he's just trying to hang onto his meal ticket and he knows his Dad is a massive 'what have you done for me lately' asshole that could care less if all his children were devoured by alligators.

The part where Trump cut his own brother off was probably highly informative to the kids.

no jokes here, and maybe this is beyond redundant, but it is still shocking to me that this kind of unself-conscience, solipsistic thinking has taken hold. it is like some kind of gnostic concept of hell on earth. wanting approval from others but being incapable of accepting personal failings, one descends into a paranoid realm devoid of shame or the possibility of improvement, constantly tormented by the inability to conceive of the idea of personal growth. the only recourse is to perpetually redefine one's self through moral compromise and the debasement of everything and everyone around you. it is true horror.

Chelsea and Ivanka are contemporaneously born (Chelsea, 1980; Ivanka, 1981). But Clinton was a nobody governor of a hick-state back then. There's no way Ivana would have spread her legs for him. It would have been at least by his second time around as governor that he had enhanced his lady-killer charisma.

/Didn't know that Arkansas back then had 2-year terms for governors. What a stupid idea. No governor can function when they have to be re-elected every two years.

Since Chelsea is supposed to be fathered by Webb Hubbell, maybe he's also Ivanka's father. Maybe Trump gets frisky with Ivanka because he knows technically, he's not diddling his kid.

Condoms have been legal and available in the USA since 1918. Latex condoms have been around since 1920.

Trump had a little mushroom dick back then. Can't blame a girl for slumming it to get an actual orgasm.

I thought it might be something along those lines. Just really odd to find basically nothing about it through Google or DDG. Normally if I miss some nuance of American (or Canuckistani, or Australian, or Greek or ...) culture, the Googles can educate me on it. But like I said, DDG's first two hits were TFA and this thread. I guess it's something that kids do then think nothing more of as they grow up, so it doesn't get much mention on the innerwebs.

 TFA mentions half-scoop's beard. There's just something about it I don't trust. It looks like miniature golf course turf painted dark and glued to his face.

Jr, plenty of guys look great with beards. Plenty of guys look ridiculous. Guess which one you are.
 
2020-06-20 4:49:12 PM  
Once upon a time Don Jr had a better grasp of what his father was, but apparently at some he point gave up and decided to do anything to get his POS father's approval, becoming just another POS.

She had been completely humiliated by Donald through his public association with Marla Maples. "How can you say you love us? You don't love us! You don't even love yourself. You just love your money," twelve-year-old Donald junior told his father, according to friends of Ivana's. "What kind of son have I created?" Trump's mother, Mary, is said to have asked Ivana.

(From a 1990 Vanity Fair article)
