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:
"You go through a town…. you can see the poorest of the poor and there's still a smile on their face."

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.
