And I thought those Trump kids were supposed to be smart.

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/trump-jr-says-...

TL;DR

Trump Jr says that the president plagiarized his speech. Specifically (and only) the six word phrase "That's not the America I know." The phrase is used in a totally different context, and has been used by Presidents Obama and Bush several times in the past. Maybe Donnie can use vouchers to go back to private school and learn what plagiarism means.

I think his point is that when you speak in platitudes, they eventually begin to all sound the same , just in differing order.

Also, Don Jr's is a god damn savage on twitter , some of the funniest shit ever.

When Anthony Wiener threatened to come out of retirement to beat his dad.

Quote:
Too soon Anthony!!! You probably shouldn't be talking about beating anything ever again. Go back to your cave.


Or this nugget

Quote:
Press Don't Ask Chelsea About Dad's Treatment Of Women -- But Ask Ivanka Constantly...


This kids is the better then his old man at the game.

Speaking of game, both Donald, Jr. and Eric Trump like to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights by going on canned safaris (where wild animals are stocked within a certain fenced-off region for paying customers) to hunt big-game animals.

As a non-American I really don't get the fascination / focus with members of the nominees family.

Maybe its the celebrity side of US presidential politics but I really don't see anything remotely similar in political discussions elsewhere: beyond photo ops you might see a story or two on the person's spouse let alone their children. And whether their kids seem OK or not seems entirely irrelevant to whether they would do a good job as a politician.

This election is different because most of us assume Clinton's daughter will be give a carpet bagged postilion somewhere and try to get in office.

the surprising thing is Trumps kids appear to understand and enjoy politics so that's whats different in this election.
We could be seeing a future battle.

It varies how much they are involved on the Camlaign, and tends to be tied to humanizing the candidate. That said when your family has no political chops and yet ends up the keynote speakers for your nominating convention it looks less humanizing and more timeslot filling.

I don't remember it happening before. Have a candidate's sons and daughters spoken at past conventions?

Understand Politics? Based on what, the idiotic statement given at the top of the thread here. I have a feeling The Donald's kids will be busy enough trying to repair the damage to the brand to get involved in politics. Especially since appealing to White Nationalism probably has a limited shelf life given the demographics of the country
