Trump’s Sons Selfishly Cut In Line Ahead Of Children At 2017 White House Easter Egg Roll: New Book

There’s a familiar phrase we’ve all heard since we were kids: The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

The meaning of that saying, of course, is that a child will often exhibit qualities or talents that are remarkably similar to their parents.

Nowhere is that old expression more true than in the Trump family, and a new book suggests that the two oldest sons — Don Jr. and Eric — are indeed just as spoiled, entitled, and hateful as their father, the failed, one-term former president.

According to I’ll Take Your Questions Now, written by former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll in 2017 — an event that’s supposed to be all about children — Junior and Eric jumped in line of the kids who had been invited for egg roll so they and their spawn could be at the front of the line.

Business Insider reports on the section of Grisham’s book that has left many shaking their heads in disgust:

Grisham writes that Trump’s eldest sons cut the line “ahead of the other children in attendance and made sure their own kids and not the kids of the general public were in the photos with the president and first lady.”

“Some of the children and their parents had stood in long lines for an hour or longer to get a spot with the president, and they were relegated to the background,” she continued. “I would go on to develop positive relationships with most of the Trump children, but that was a generally obnoxious and entitled display that did not appear to surprise” Melania Trump and other East Wing aides.

Of course, the behavior of the former president’s sons shouldn’t surprise anyone. They’re the very same assholes who stole money from a children’s cancer charity and then used it for their own purposes. That and other massive irregularities in the Donald J. Trump Foundation led the New York attorney general to demand the “charity” and foundation be shut down in lieu of her filing charges against the Trumps for their blatant grifting.

Grisham’s book also contains this tidbit about Melania Trump and her reaction to the Easter celebration at the White House:

Melania Trump purposely kept the crowd size smaller than was the custom because she didn’t want to keep parents and their kids waiting in long lines. She also paid close attention to the Easter bunny’s wardrobe and apparently wasn’t pleased with it.

“I don’t like what he is wearing,” the first lady said of the bunny, who initially wore a plaid vest, Grisham writes. Melania “felt it was tacky and distracting,” so “then and there, only minutes before he was to hop out onto the White House lawn, Melania Trump made the Easter bunny strip.”

There’s an obvious joke about Melania making someone strip that could easily be made, but it’s hardly worth the hassle of the lawsuit she’d likely file. You’ll just have to create your own punchline.

Eric Trump’s Attorney In Trump Org. Fraud Suit Just Dumped Him As A Client

An attorney representing Eric Trump in a fraud lawsuit brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James against the Trump Organization has abruptly resigned, according to Forbes, though it remains unclear why he did so.

Marc Mukasey of Mukasey Frenchman LLP informed a New York state Supreme Court judge in Manhattan that he was withdrawing from the case on Sept. 14. The move comes one day after a judge’s order to seal a stipulation between the parties was filed. Before that agreement, the docket shows no activity in this case since January. It’s not clear if there’s any connection between the agreement and Mukasey’s departure.

Mukasey declined to comment on the record for this story. He has represented Eric Trump in the case since it was filed in August 2020. Eric and representatives from the Trump Organization have not replied to inquiries.

Interestingly, Mukasey is a former law partner of Rudy Giuliani, who once represented former President Donald Trump until the ex-president stopped paying Giuliani for his services. The former New York City mayor is also under criminal investigation in several jurisdictions for his actions during the 2020 election, especially the numerous attempts made by Trump and his allies to overturn the results despite their failure to provide a scintilla of evidence that any fraud or irregularities took place in the balloting. Giuliani has also been barred from practicing law in the state of New York since July.

Mukasey has represented some controversial and high-profile clients over the years, including rogue Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, oil-field service company Halliburton, and basketball coach Rick Pitino.

Attorney General James is investigating Trump Org. for allegedly falsifying the value of its assets to secure loans and reduce its tax liability.

Eric Trump Asked If Americans Missed His Dad Yet – He Didn’t Get The Answer He Wanted

Eric Trump is operating under the mistaken impression that the vast majority of Americans wish his father was still president.

In other words, Eric is just a stupid as his daddy.

Recently, Eric tweeted out a link to a site, DoYouMissMeYet.com.

This is what you see when you click on that link:

Pathetic. He’s literally begging for applause. As if anyone other than the most brainwashed MAGAts want Donald Trump back in the White House. The American people overwhelmingly rejected Trump last November, and he lost by over 7 million popular votes and 74 electoral votes. It wasn’t even close. Hell, Biden even won Georgia, which has long been considered to be a reliably red state.

And let’s not forget the insurrection Trump inspired on Jan. 6. That will go down in history as one of the darkest days this country has ever seen. It was an attempted coup that was called for by Donald Trump.

But a quick look at the responses to Eric’s tweet tells you all you need to know, because people overwhelmingly told him they don’t want his old man anywhere near the Oval Office again.

Apparently, Eric believes that absence makes the heart grow fonder. But that’s not true when you’re talking about hemorrhoids.

Jan. 6 Committee Demands Documents From Trump And His Children: Report

The House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol made it clear today that they plan to conduct an extensive and far-reaching probe of what took place on the fateful day earlier this year that left five people dead and a black mark on the American system of government.

Politico reports the committee is seeking documents and communication records from various federal agencies and also from the White House:

“The committee, chaired by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), plans to seek executive branch records related to the attack and its run-up — including ‘communications within and among the White House and Executive Branch agencies’ on and before Jan. 6.

“The select panel is also seeking records relating to attempts to place politically loyal personnel in positions across the government after the election; the planning, organization and response to Jan. 6 and earlier; and attempts to overturn the rule of law and overturn the 2020 election. One segment of the request notably seeks ‘documents and communications related to the mental stability of Donald Trump or his fitness for office.'”

Additionally, the committee is reaching directly into the Trump inner circle, which could open up members of the former president’s family to federal charges if they played any role in planning or carrying out the Capitol riots:

“The committee asked the National Archives for ‘all documents and communications within the White House’ involving a host of Trump World denizens, including Hope Hicks, former national security adviser Robert O’Brien, Trump adviser Peter Navarro, Kayleigh McEnany, Steve Bannon, Michael Flynn, Melania Trump, all Trump’s adult children except Tiffany Trump, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Rudy Giuliani and Roger Stone.”

There are also mentions among the document request to the Pentagon for any and all “documents and communications concerning possible attempts by President Donald Trump to remain in office after January 20, 2021,” along with specific references to “martial law, the Insurrection Act, and the use of military personnel during last year’s election.”

The Justice Department under Trump will also be closely scrutinized by the select committee:


“The panel requested a wide-ranging tranche of records from DOJ related to Trump’s attempts to force the department to intervene in the election, then-Vice President Mike Pence’s role in presiding over election certification, any discussion of the 25th Amendment and the department’s response to Jan. 6.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tried to shrug off news of the committee and its requests for documentation, telling reporters:

“They are coming for members of Congress, they’re coming for everybody. It’s kind of amazing to me.”

McCarthy spoke with Trump on the day of the insurrection and may also be called to testify before the committee, which could wind up resulting in criminal charges being filed against him and other members of the GOP who allegedly gave tours of the Capitol just days before the riots took place.

Federal Appeals Court Says Multimillion Dollar Fraud Suit Against The Trumps Will Proceed

An enormous class action lawsuit filed against former President Donald Trump and his three oldest children — Don Jr., Eric, and Ivanka — will move forward despite pleas from the Trumps that the case be allowed to go to arbitration.

According to Courthouse News, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the lawsuit, accuses the Trumps of running a pyramid scheme to hawk the services of American Communications Network, which allegedly ran a multilevel marketing scheme that bilked investors and never produced the financial returns it promised:

“Trump and three of his children — Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump — appeared from 2005 to 2015 in promotional television ads, at events and in magazines touting American Communications Network, a telecommunications company that offers business seminars and encourages enrollees to bring in new recruits.

“In a 2018 federal class action, four investors who said they lost hundreds or thousands of dollars investing with ACN sought damages from the then-first family and their corporate entity, the Trump Organization, saying they concealed that ACN paid them handsomely for their endorsements.”

Here’s how the scheme worked: ACN made investors pay $499 up front so they could register with the promise that they could then earn commissions by selling products at “motivational rallies.” At those rallies, family and friends were shown a DVD to encourage them to pony up money for their share of a massive payday promised in ACN’s promotional materials, many of which featured the Trumps encouraging people to pay money so the could reap the rewards, which never materialized.

In the lawsuit, investors reported they made back “less than 10%” of their initial investment.

Much like another illegal scheme, Trump University, the only people who made money in the ACN/Trump deal were the principals: ACN and the Trump family.

A class action judgement against the Trumps could put a massive dent in their bottom line at a time when the Trump Organization is reportedly hemorrhaging money and the former president is unable to lure investors to his struggling real estate business.

The Trump Organization is also under criminal indictment for engaging in tax fraud over the course of decades. Those indictments were handed down earlier this month.
