Donald Trump Jr. doesn’t just share a name with his father, he also shares a number of personality traits. The son of the former president is, like his father, is desperately clinging to relevance. And with the family businesses having severe problems, politics is probably the best way forward.Trump Jr. is staying in front of MAGA world by producing bunker style videos where he touches on the biggest issues of the day. These videos frequently feature a complete lack of self awareness. The Daily Show recently filmed a segment mocking Trump for his obliviousness.
Correspondent Roy Wood Jr. began, “In recent weeks, Donald Trump, Jr., the oldest, least Eric-y son of Donald Trump, has been complaining that a politician has not been punished for his alleged sex crimes. It raises an uncomfortable question: Does Don, Jr. know who his father is? Seriously.”
The Unsolved Mystery style skit continued with Wood saying, “You might imagine that Donald Trump, Jr. definitely knows who is dad is. The man says the words ‘my father’ more than the Pope. And yet, in recent years a mysterious thing happened, Don, Jr. started talking like a man who had no damn idea Donald Trump was his daddy.”
Later in the segment, the correspondent asked, “Does Don, Jr. think that he got that job at the Trump Organization because he wrote a good cover letter? Does Donald Trump, Jr. not know what the word ‘junior’ means?”
