Don Trump Jr. in India: Thank goodness poor people in India smile all the time

Donald Trump Jr. is an idiot. Is he the dumbest of the large adult Trump children? Perhaps. I think Ivanka is the most vain, and Eric’s label is – maybe? – the quiet dullard. Tiffany is a mess. But Don Jr is absolutely the dumbest. And we’re paying for him, America. We’re paying for this treason-committing jackass to travel through India with Secret Service agents, as he makes “business deals” and gives speeches about how it’s really nice when poor people smile.

Donald Trump Jr. is catching heat on social media over a tone-deaf comment he made about India’s poorest citizens during his visit to the country to promote Trump-branded luxury real estate. President Donald Trump’s eldest son on Tuesday said “the spirit of the Indian people” was unique to “other parts of the emerging world” because “you can see the poorest of the poor and there is still a smile on a face.”

“It’s a different spirit that you don’t see in other parts of the world, where people walk around so solemn,” said Trump Jr. He claimed the “spirit” of India’s poor “really shines through” and speaks “to the future potential of what this country can do,” although he also acknowledged the “hardships” that many people face.

Trump Jr. is purportedly in India to promote Trump-branded luxury apartments. He is scheduled to give a foreign policy speech alongside Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday. The address has provoked anger in the U.S. because Trump Jr. is not officially part of his father’s administration.

No, seriously. He said this. Here’s the video:

The thing is, I actually know what Idiot Jr. was TRYING to do. In his f–ked up brain, he was TRYING to compliment the Indian people on their spirit and positivity. But it all got convoluted and Idiot Jr was basically like “thank God poor people in this country smile, unlike all of those other countries where poor people are so aggrieved and desperate.” Oh, well. At least he’s not on Twitter again, “liking” more tweets which spread unhinged conspiracies about the Parkland survivors.

    “Look at how much cuter and submissive THESE brown people are than the ones we have in America!”

    is what he’s actually saying

  2. RBC says:

    Any movie about this family will not be a drama, but a horror.

    • C says:

      They are so delusional that it seems a comedy written by Ricky Gervais. They are soooooo clueless 😳😳😳😳

      • Snappyfish says:

        I hate saying this but he has the most punchable face. Then he opens his mouth and his ignorance just seals the deal. So like Bigly. Obtuse & probably guilty of treason

  3. Darla says:

    He is a vile, disgusting human being. Stupid or not. Yes, I do think he’s stupid, but I am far more concerned with his moral vileness.

    • INeedANap says:

      He is vile.

      Also, how can he both continue working on the family business overseas while giving foreign policy visits?? Conflict of interest anyone??

    • still_sarah says:

      I agree. “Donnie’s” stupidity is a gift that refuses to stop giving. Were it not for his family money, this guy would be pushing a broom somewhere.

  4. HelloSunshine says:

    Ugh. Idk what else to say honestly lol
    Him liking tweets about conspiracy theories about the shooting made me so angry I had to unplug myself from any news source (phone or tv) and take a hot shower with some deep breathing. So heartless and inappropriate

  5. Jojo says:

    I absolutely loathe it when poor people spoil my mood with their miserable faces. You’re not working hard or contributing to the economy, the least you can do is try to make the world a friendlier place. It can be so awful sometimes. Can’t think about it too much as it will ruin my brunch and I work so hard managing the people who manage my parents’ 16 rental properties to be able to afford it.

  6. tracking says:

    He is beyond revolting.

  7. Milla says:

    Worst combination is evil and stupid. Can’t fix it.

  8. Lightpurple says:

    Paul Ryan needs to explain to me why he is allowing this flagrant violation of the emoluments clause to continue.

  9. Beth says:

    Does Junior think that poor people only cry and frown?

  10. minx says:

    I absolutely despise this guy.

    • still_sarah says:

      Every time he opens his mouth, I understand why Ivanka is daddy’s favourite. Donnie Jr. and Eric just sound so dumb.

  11. Betsy says:

    Come on, Jr, say it, say it, you know you want to say that maybe African Americans were happier under slavery. You know that a permanent underclass made of black people, anyone not white and then the whites they don’t like is what these people hunger for, in part for the economic benefits of being at the top of the heap and in part because these people are sick racists.

  12. Hazel says:

    Chinless Dumbass

  13. Scarlett says:

    My parents are from India and as much as the Trumps have always annoyed me, this comment of his makes me want to punch something.

    Asinine, tone deaf, idiotic, dumb, ignorant nonsense ….aaargh….I am going to go scream into my pillow!! I can’t, I just can’t!!

    • bcgirl says:

      I know, I feel actually violent when I read about this guy. he needs a big knuckle crack right where his chin should be.
      wtf!

  14. Tw says:

    “Useful idiot” in the dictionary – just a photo of this no-chin-having, big-game-hunting, treason-committing jackass POS.

  15. adastraperaspera says:

    Cannot wait to see him imprisoned. This farce is unbelievable. Deplorable was just the right word for them!

  16. Eric says:

    To quote Dotatd Jr:
    “I love it. It’ll be great towards the end of summer.”

    I’m using that misquoted quote to state how freakin glorious it’ll be when Mr Mueller puts a fat indictment on Small Mouth for coordination with the Russians in Dump Tower to swing an election. June 16, 2016. A date that will live in infamy.

  17. kelp says:

    He is so damn hideous.

  18. seraph7 says:

    When this family go to jail, I will be happy at last! Not one redeemable one in there.

  19. lucy2 says:

    Remember when people got upset that Michelle Obama’s mother moved to the White House with the family for a bit to help take care of the young kids? Fun times.
    Now we’re paying for a security detail to guard the Chinless/Brainless Wonder around the world while he does “business” (scams)? Can’t these “billionaires” pay for their own security?
    Not to mention all the money spent for Melania to stay in NYC for months. The hypocrisy makes me so furious.

  20. wood dragon says:

    Don’t you just want to smack him upside the head with a rolled up newspaper?

  21. Jinx says:

    This is like how some of the customers in my customer service job think I’m one of their friends because I smile all the time and even laugh at their stupid political jokes!

  22. Q T Hush says:

    I’m sure all those smiling poor people will line up to purchase a Trump Luxury Apartment. What an a$$hole.

  23. Q T Hush says:

    Also Drump Double Double chin spoke over the female host as she tried to bail him out with a concise statement about the spirit of India and its people.

  24. Green Is Good says:

    He is such a weak-chinned pussy.

  25. Preeti Kamat says:

    We smile cos we don’t have the trumps as our first family.

  26. hogtowngooner says:

    The walking personification of “born on third base, thinks he hit a triple.”

    If this dumbass wasn’t a Trump, he’d be a gross poor too.
