Last November, just before Election Day, Scott Melker, a former college classmate of Donald Trump Jr., shared a Facebook post in an attempt to illustrate why Donald Trump was unfit to be president. Clearly his post didn’t save the world from the nightmare known as President Trump, but it may provide some insight into Trump’s relationship with his eldest son.
Lawrence O’Donnell recently read the Facebook post on The Last Word in light of Don Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer connected to the Kremlin in June of 2016 to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. O’Donnell said that neither Daddy Trump nor Trump Jr. took legal action. In other words, no lawsuit was filed against Melker for his allegation. So while Melker’s account of what happened hasn’t been proven, it hasn’t been disputed either — the sue-happy Trump family left Don Jr.’s former classmate alone.
Melker wrote on Facebook:
As many of you know, I attended the University of Pennsylvania with Donald Trump Jr. I feel compelled to share this story before the election, in the hopes that it will shed a bit of light on the kind of person that Donald Trump is, and the kind of son that he raised.
I was hanging out in a freshman dorm with some friends, next door to Donald Jr.’s room. I walked out of the room to find Donald Trump at his son’s door, there to pick him up for a baseball game. There were quite a few students standing around watching, trying to catch a glimpse of the famed real estate magnate. Don Jr. opened the door, wearing a Yankee jersey. Without saying a word, his father slapped him across the face, knocking him to the floor in front of all of his classmates. He simply said “put on a suit and meet me outside,” and closed the door.
Donald Jr. was a drunk in college. Every memory I have of him is of him stumbling around campus falling over or passing out in public, with his arm in a sling from injuring himself while drinking. He absolutely despised his father, and hated the attention that his last name afforded him. His nickname was “Diaper Don,” because of his tendency to fall asleep drunk in other people’s beds and urinate. I always felt terrible for him.
In case you start feeling sorry for Don Jr., remember, he and his brother Eric like to murder beautiful wild animals for sport.
