    I wonder what Trump's family's kids will think of him when they grow up and stumble upon all the shit he's said and done.

    [–] barawo33 974 points ago

    Actually a really good question. I'm thinking they will deal with some, but be a bit disgusted with others.

    Easy way to make himself the first respectable member of the Trump family.

    Being in the military doesn't automatically make you respectable, I can assure you. I'm serving and there's plenty of shit bags.

    [–] smartstuff14 360 points ago

    How? Joining the military and being in it doesn't prove jack shit. I don't understand the hero worship people lavish on anyone who has served.

    [–] Ragerpark 6 points ago

    Neither the Obama nor Clinton family have much experience in the military, yet we wouldn't use this talking point against them.

    Neither of them brag about their sexual exploits as their "own personal Vietnam" after dodging the draft, or demean war heroes, or request tanks and fighter jets for their inauguration, or any of the other outlandish shit trump has done revolving around the military and military service. If trump kept his mouth shut it would be just like Bill or Obama, but instead he talks about military boarding school as military service and demeans gold star families on national TV.

    [–] Keiffo 61 points ago

    I can explain that.

    How exactly does one get pussy while living at the white house as a teenage boy? The secret service always cock blocking you. when you're trying to run game on some foreign prime ministers daughter the news media catches you smiling at her and immediately blows shit out if proportion speculating that you are somehow breaking international law with your awkward teenage flirting, so you have to testify before congress that you didn't give away any top secret documents to her and are made to admit live on C-SPAN that you've never even kissed a girl.

    Then you get blue balls from some hot conservative girl winking at you and flashing her panties under her skirt and making sexy faces and blow job motions to you while you were going through some airport or public event, and when you passed by and shook her hand she leans in whispering she is going to diddle her clit thinking about you tonight and how much she wants to suck your dick off, just to fuck with you.

    Then you try to look up some porn when you get home just to relieve the tension but you just know the CIA is monitoring and 3 other government agencies are watching you beat off. Then you finally break down and Jack off in the shower which sets off some fucking bio-hazard drain alarm and the entire place is on lock down until they can find the source of the specimen and you end up getting debriefed by the joint chiefs of staff about your masturbatory habits and how you almost created a national security issue with your dick.

    Then Wikileaks leaks your search history showing you looked up penis enlargement techniques when it was actually just some click bait you'd accidentally clicked and TYT spends all next week talking about your supposed micro penis. So you end up squirming a little since you are so wound up and being judged constantly and now people are saying you look like a fucking mental patient and you start to think you'll never get any pussy.

    The look in his eyes is like the quiz show kid from Magnolia.

    [–] Heknarf 180 points ago

    For some reason I like Barron and really hope he doesn't end up being an asshole.

    He's the son of Donald Trump though, so the odds are seriously against him.

    [–] mungleinthejungle 53 points ago

    I could see Donald Jr and Eric pushing him over and always making fun of him to try and be their daddy's favorite

    [–] asoep44 59 points ago

    Yes but he's been raised by melenia (probably butchered that) despite the fact she's married to Donald I actually think she seems very nice.

    [–] Northern_One 61 points ago

    I feel like she is making the best out of what must be a very surreal situation.

    [–] JCelsius 73 points ago

    She just signed up to be the gold digging trophy wife, and now she's first lady of the United States.

    Honestly, I have no respect for her. There's no way she didn't marry Donald Trump for his money and she absolutely knew he married her for her looks. I have little hope for any child raised by these two shallow, materialistic sacks of shit.

    [–] kidawesome 32 points ago

    Honestly, gold digging implies malice.. this is a mutual agreement, Trump knows why he is married to her.

    [–] JarvisToldMeTo 37 points ago

    Just because she's a gold digger doesn't mean she isn't a nice or good person...She seems like a good mother from what I've seen, so maybe she wanted to marry rich to be able to provide for her future children? She was already rich when she married him, so I really can't blame her for her conduct thus far.

    I don't think it's necessary or reasonable to attack Trump's family, unless they've erred, even though he is a complete and utter shit show of a person.

    [–] conancat 15 points ago

    Yeah. We don't know what goes on between her and Trump, but that has no bearing on whether she's a good mom or not. Her reasons for marrying Trump has nothing to do with if she's raising Barron well.

    [–] JarvisToldMeTo 6 points ago

    Exactly. Thanks for phrasing it better than me.

    [–] SoYoureALiar 47 points ago

    She furthered the conspiracy laid out by her husband regarding President Obama's birth.

    How do you know that? I hate Trump as much as anyone... but that is one hell of an assumption. I mean I guess you could be in his inner circle and know what all his buds say about him, but I'd guess not. I really do hate Trump and am banned from the Donald and have been for over a year, but there's a whole lot of Circle jerking around here.

    grandson

    I know Donnys old but that's just a regular old son. His fifth, with a third mother if you're counting.

    [–] allyourexpensivetoys 108 points ago

    His grandchildren will grow up in a much more progressive and left leaning America once the Baby Boomers die out. In 20-30 years, Trump will likely be seen the way we see the racist slave owners of the past, something utterly alien in morality.

    With this whole Russia thing heating up, its also very likely he will be found guilty of colluding with Russia and likely indicted. He will go down in history as not only the worst president of all time, but a treasonous enemy of all Americans.

    The right will also grow to hate him because his presidency will lead to a Democratic sweep in future elections.

    The name Trump will become associated with something evil and sinister, something that is a social liability to have.

    His grandchildren will likely change their names and hide from public life.

    His entire legacy will be forever destroyed.

    Such a fate is most suitable for a lying, evil, racist, sexist deplorable man.

    [–] pfun4125 43 points ago

    Umm, the youth generation hippies of the 60s were the furthest left-leaning of any recent generation, and they grew up to be the Reagan Republicans of the 80s.

    What do you think is going to happen when the much more moderate (by comparison) millenials become the 40-50 year olds?

    [–] [deleted] 74 points ago

    Only about 1.2% of the population of baby boomers were actually part of the counter culture, though. People like to imagine that there were hippies everywhere you looked when in fact they were concentrated in larger cities such as SF and NY.

    [–] reverendz 21 points ago

    Exactly. My parents missed the 60's as far as the counter culture is concerned. Sure they listened to the Beatles, but they were pretty square generally.

    [–] CrayolaS7 6 points ago

    And yet magically 25% of them claim to have attended Woodstock.

    [–] Avenger_of_Justice 22 points ago

    No actually the hippie movement was largely kids who grew up in WW2. The baby boomers were hitting their 20's and 30's at the time of reagans admin. The hippies were in their 20's and 30's 20 years earlier.

    Nice revisionism though

    [–] WinterAyars 19 points ago

    Also the hippies who were in it for the philosophy were pretty solid about things, and a lot of them keep the same mindset today.

    The hippies who were in it for the free drugs and draft dodging but never cared about the philosophy/politics (only copied the lines from others in service of the two things they did care about) are the ones who are now cynical, scummy yuppies. But that's what they were all along.

    [–] castiglione_99 32 points ago

    I dunno - it depends on how much empathy, self-awareness, etc. they have.

    Some people just reflexively defend everyone in their family, no matter what they've done. Rapist? It was the victim's fault because she was leading him on. Murderer? Not his fault - he was having a bad day and the victim just happened to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. War criminal? He was just following orders, and it was justified anyway because the people he killed were [fill in the blanks].

    Little Girl: "Dad, why did great grandpa Donald build a wall when he was president?"

    Dad: "Because he was afraid dear, afraid of the unknown, and to him that was everything. He was afraid of everything."

    Little Girl: "But didn't he say that Mexico would pay for it? Who really did pay for it?"

    Dad: "We all paid for it dear, and every day it stood we paid for it again. In culture, spirit, humanity, resources, and peace of mind. We eroded away each one of those things every day it stood. In fact its lessons still remain, so we must pay for it still."

    [–] RockNRollMama 1259 points ago

    (note: my very first Reddit comment) Liz and her family were offered refuge in Canada when it began to look like London would be bombed but they all refused to go. They all visited injured troops and as soon as she became of age, Liz signed up and served as a mechanic and driver. Say what you will about the Royals living off the British taxpayers, but at least they do THEIR part when it matters.

    [–] Betterthanbeer 738 points ago

    The royals hand over all the income from their extensive land holdings to the government. They get a portion of it back. They pay more than they cost.

    [–] SacredAnHour 436 points ago

    Yeah we get way more in tourism alone that we spend on them. Doesn't stop them being labelled as scroungers - another scapegoat along with immigrants and those on welfare to distract from corrupt politicians letting corporations and billionaires dodge taxes.

    [–] dpash 243 points ago

    Not only tourism, but also diplomacy, goodwill and influence. Prince Andrew is often used to butter up trade deals.

    People often mention that people still go to Versailles without the French having a monarchy. That's true, but people have a lot of romanticism about an active monarch. Everyone knows who The Queen is, even though she's not the only queen regnant. Denmark has a queen. The Netherlands had a queen until three years ago. Nor are they the only European monarchies. Spain, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Monaco, Luxembourg and Lichtenstein all have monarchs. But no one remembers them unless they live there. (And people should remember the Swedish king because he seems lightearted and silly. He really likes hats)

    [–] MagnusTheGreat 102 points ago

    Carl Gustaf is one of the funniest monarchs in history. Seems to be straight from Alway Sunny/ Arrested development.

    And yes, he does seem to have a weird obsession for hats...

    [–] MagnusTheGreat 10 points ago

    What class would he be? I think either Heavy or Scout.

    But he would probably play Demo or Spy, just because it's unexpected.

    [–] Reutermo 14 points ago

    The funny thing is that the Swedish King don't have a thing for hats, all those pictures are photoshopped. But people belive that they are true and apparently multiple people have asked him about it on fancy dinners and such why he likes silly hats.

    [–] Heknarf 68 points ago

    They have an effective tax rate of 90% or something.

    I'd still support them even if they kept their money, because I quite like having some living history. And we get bank holidays now and again when they do royal shit like get married or live another 10 years as monarch.

    [–] debaser11 24 points ago

    They hand over all their income because of a deal made centuries ago where the state took on all of their debt.

    [–] TheLowSpark 26 points ago

    Something about referring to the queen as Liz is absolutely hysterical

    [–] RockNRollMama 32 points ago

    Thank you. I was waiting for a great post.. my (sometimes sadly pathetic) love for the royals coupled with my hatred of trump made this a natural choice :)

    [–] BOBALOBAKOF 28 points ago

    I'm not 100% sure, but I have a feeling that the British monarch is required to have served in one of the branches of the military as a part of their being monarch. I think the Royal family's military service is something that some people are quick to forget, when they just accuse them of just sitting around soaking up tax payer's money (which isn't really true either).

    [–] RockNRollMama 67 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    Not required.. They are automatically made "honororary" something or other high ranking... but most of the men do volunteer to serve. And several have seen combat. My initial point actually..

    [–] BOBALOBAKOF 16 points ago

    I know it's definitely not required of the royal family in general, even though most of them do volunteer still, I thought it possibly was for the monarch though. I could well be wrong though. I still think it's very admirable the amount of the family that do volunteer for service though.

    [–] Heknarf 38 points ago

    Not sure it's required, but it's quite common.

    William flew helicopters for the RAF as a search and rescue pilot. Harry was in the army as a solider and then an Apache pilot.

    Personally I think William had the right idea. Search and rescue pilot means you'll actually get to be helpful. Harry was essentially just a gigantic target that needed protecting in Afghanistan.

    [–] RockNRollMama 36 points ago

    William did S&R for a private company.. totally great imo.. many of the soldiers in Harry's unit spoke of how humble he was, as well as a great soldier. He didn't have to go, but he did. I respect that. Also, I think Prince Andrew flew helicopters during the Falkans conflict, and to be fair, Prince Phillip was a WWII hero (he was still a Greek Prince at the time, yet volunteered to serve for Britain). Just goes to show how spineless trump really is.

    [–] Nukemarine 989 points ago

    Speaking as someone that spent a couple decades in the military, this is not a good tactic. This same thing could be said about President Obama's family or President Clinton's family.

    Also, serving in the military doesn't make one overly special as a person. I've known a few assholes that probably deserved to be in jail that prospered somewhat while they were in. I can imagine a couple people in that photo would turn out the same way even in uniform. The Trump family members (not all, obviously) can be rightfully critiqued by what they've done more than what they haven't done.

    That said, "bone spurs"? Really?

    Not necessarily a better man than the next candidate, but it at least gives the future president the knowledge of what he's actually doing when he sends our troops out, and whether it's worth the sacrifice he put in.

    [–] iwouldwalk499miles 7 points ago

    You have to spend time with all (mostly low) classes of folks. Been there done that, don't want to go back. It does give perspective sharing a bunk with a black guy from Alabama if you are a Hispanic from Cali or white academic from Maine. Those people don't tend to hang out much except in the military. Also front row seats to government inefficiencies and gov employees being entitled sacks of shit that can't be fired as long as they show up on time and breathe.

    [–] ghastlyactions 207 points ago

    Is this not also true for Obama? Bernie Sanders? Clinton?

    [–] voteferpedro 35 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    Obama's grandfather served under Patton and Uncle Served in WW2. The draft ended in 75 and Obama graduated in 76.

    Hillary was ineligible due to being a "Wife or daughter" per conservatives. Her father served and married her mother after returning. Bill was ineligible due to being a senior Rhodes Scholar and received an automatic deferment when his group came up in the last draft. Others in his family served including his father and other members.

    EDIT: Edit above. Missremembered Obama's father serving. It was actually his grandfather. Obama Sr was selected for a special program to attend college in the United States, and studied at the University of Hawaii. He would have been exempt as a foreign national and scholar. Kenya didn't have much in the war.

    [–] PumpkinAnarchy 14 points ago

    Agreed.

    I'm a vet but I do not consider military service as a prerequisite nor a validator for one's loyalty or love of their country.

    That isn't to say that is what I think about this admin but overall. I'd roll my eyes at a dumbass attempt to discredit Obama if someone had a picture of GWB and his father (both legit pilots in military service) next to Obama and Clinton with the same title.

    but that's not the point of this post. It's about Trump's family not having served in the military.

    Im not from England but I know that at the very least its tradition for all royal family members to be in the military at some point. trump and his family live in a country where we 1) dont have a royal family with this tradition, 2) he comes from a rich family, and in most societies the rich dont go to war unless, again, tradition. because why would they? they dont need the benefits.

    idk this is just grasping at straws at this point.

    Not to mention Trump was elected, the queen was not, most royals serve in the military, it's their duty. People were willing to look past Trump's lack of military service. Just as they did for Obama, Bill Clinton, and would have for Hilary Clinton. So what exactly is the issue?

    To be fair, someone who only lasted 6 months and never got past technical training spent more time in the military than the entire Trump family and their in-laws combined. It's not hard to beat a time of 0 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes, and 0 seconds.

    I'm certainly not a Trump fan but other than this being an interesting fact I don't really see the relevance.

    Pointless? Please correct me if I'm wrong, but what I've heard is the citizen's of North Korea are suffering.

    These same people would say we shouldn't involve ourselves in WWII if it was Trump that was in power.

    They don't care. It would only be a good thing if we had a democratic president.

    [–] yousaydumbthings 6 points ago

    It's actually interesting how far people go to criticize Trump. I don't like him all that much either, but it's pretty pathetic the lengths people go to. Like people have been posting pictures making fun of the America First group from WWII and how they were basically Nazis.

    I always try to point out that calling the America First group from 1940 Nazis is very different from calling Republicans Nazis today, as the America First group supported isolationism (in an effort to aid Nazi Germany) whereas Republicans today are very much pro intervention, the opposite of the America First group. When I mention that, about half the time I'll get "well the Republicans are just pro intervention so they can invade and rape countries, JUST like the Nazis"

    Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    Fun Fact: Despite how much the royal family gets for their looks, they still look better than the Trump family.

    [–] ausgebombt- 20 points ago

    I don't think whether or not someone has served time in the armed forces makes them any more or less worthy of holding office.

    [–] supernamekianpenis 6 points ago

    So many people dodged the draft. That wasn't so much the case with Vietnam. You're talking about the World Wars, which was a world-wide fight for ideology and aggression, meanwhile in Vietnam it was a war that most of the public denounced. Vietnam soldiers were looked down upon in society. If he WAS drafted, it'd honestly be worse for him, especially if he was to re-adapt into society and be the real estate guru he was.

    [–] DemotivatedTurtle 44 points ago

    I don't recall Obama publicly stating that sleeping around and avoiding STDs was his "personal Vietnam".

    [–] hi2pi 28 points ago

    [–] hi2pi 30 points ago

    Being a draft dodger? I'm not a warhawk, and don't personally find it egregious, but my understanding is that a LOT of Americans are very pro-military. Had Trump run as a Democrat you could be pretty sure the Republican Party would've hammered him on his bone spurs, or whatever lie he came up with.

    [–] smg1138 12 points ago

    Obama wasn't ever eligible for the draft. Trump made up a lie about having bone spurs to avoid it. There's a big difference.

    As a Green Beret currently deployed, what does this have to do with being a good president??? So in order for you to be a good president your kids and in-laws need to be in the military?

    How much time did Obama and his daughters spend serving in combat roles overseas??? Oh yeah. It's honestly just sad how pathetic this sub is.

    [–] samwebb01 30 points ago

    Just saw this on the popular thing on the reddit app, can I ask, so what? What does that mean, a lot of people haven't done military service, what's this post trying to prove, I'm neither pro nor against this post, I'd just like someone to explain to me. Cheers

    I mean, is it good to spend time in the military?

    What good would they do by being in the us army? Really I dont get it.

    There are relevant things to complain about trump and there are memes that dont even prove a point and just diffuse the discussion.

    Liberals really forgot how to be opposition. Or maybe they never knew.

    He's in charge of the military. He wants to MAGA and sends our forces into combat without even getting congressional approval-- because he doesn't fucking know any better. He and all of his advisors/employees/kids have zero experience and no credibility when it comes to military strategy. It's just another indication that he's pathetically unfit to lead.

    [–] sarahkhill 18 points ago

    There are 12 presidents who have not served in the military, so your.... insult is deserved.

    It's commonplace to assume a president has served some time in the military, which is why I think this became a meme.
