To paraphrase the philosopher: That which breaks us breaks us.

If I were Trump’s child I’d get myself adopted by Bill Gates. Or anyone. Putin.

Yes, Sweethearts, shame by affiliation. You can’t beat it.




  1. Thank God you are not.

    • I’d read my father the riot act. Unlike Trump he’d listen.

  2. The Trump kids love it. It’s great for the brand and for bringing in more money. Melania tried suing someone for defaming her. She’s losing a lot of money that she could be getting by being the first lady:

    A lawsuit filed by Melania Trump depicts her heightened profile as a “unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to make millions of dollars in business, once again raising questions about the relationship between President Trump’s official role and his family’s business interests.

    • Thanks for the link, Jean. At least Melania isn’t blood related to her husband unless he turns out to be her cousin.

      I won’t go into detail but once upon time I had an uncle. He was a sweet man, a kind man. He ran into considerable misfortune (not of the financial kind) which drove him into the abyss of drink. And you know, and I can’t decide whether to be ashamed of myself or not, whenever I mention(ed) him I always hasten(ed) to add that he had married into the family (ie NOT a blood relative of mine). Actually, reflecting on my last sentence, I am ashamed of myself. How to disown someone in one easy DNA.

      A couple of days ago I watched a clip of the stilted Ivanka muttering something about “complicit”. Complicit indeed. Let’s hope, for her sake, that one day she won’t look in the mirror and see her father.

    • My father was an alcoholic and I’m not ashamed of him or myself. In fact I loved him dearly.

      • My dear Jean, my two cousins loved their father too. And to this day they hate what became of him.

        As I said I was very fond of my uncle. He was one of life’s cheerful people. Fun. Till from one moment to the next his life was turned upside down. The reason he took to drink was a most tragic one. He became a haunted man. And the bottle became his best friend. As the years went by the less charitable pointed out that alcoholism ran in his family of origin. Which is true. It was the family’s curse running along my uncle’s paternal bloodline. And maybe that was why (I was only in my early teens at the time) I would mention that he wasn’t a blood relative. Who wants to be associated with a “curse”?

        To say what you did in your comment would have been unthinkable at that time – at least in public. And I commend you for being so open and forthright. I take it that your father was what is called a “functioning alcoholic”, of which I know many. And no life is derailed. Possibly a bit shortened, but definitely not derailed. Those my heart goes out to are those like, well, my uncle who head to the wall, their brakes cut.

  3. Boy is the donald on a roll. His tomahawk fusillade will probably give him a much needed approval rating bump. If I were one of his kids I’d wonder what the next tweet will be. And I’d go play golf.

    • Oh, Chuck, those tweets. Dear dog in heaven. They are so cringe worthy, so embarrassing – I am in knots and blushing on behalf of his kids (well, at least Baron’s – poor bastard). Even leaving the tweets’ content aside where the hell does the President of the United States of America take the time from to tweet? It’s so undignified. And why doesn’t anyone tell him? Maybe he is tone deaf.

      Golf? Maybe someone should drown him at the watering hole. Oh. No. Of course. He doesn’t even touch a drop. Mind you, and it is most Un-Russian, neither does Putin. Never trust a man who doesn’t drink. Unless they are Ramana or dead.

  4. Aren’t parents obligated to be an embarrassment to their children?
