Long outshone by his sister in the family business and now in the White House, Donald Trump Jr. is having a hard time adapting to life after the election.
It was reported by People Magazine that Donnie Jr. hates that Daddy is the president. He is super unhappy. Now that Daddy is the prez, it’s almost impossible for him to wheel and deal without someone looking over his shoulder.
Noting that Trump’s daughter Ivanka, “has always been his favorite,” People Magazine writes that “Long outshone by his sister—first at the Trump Organization and now in the White House… Don Jr. has had a harder time adapting to life after the election.”
All in all, Donnie will remain loyal to daddy. “The loyalty within this family is insane,” says a family friend especially close to Don Jr. and Eric. “They would never speak against their dad. You can’t bite the hand that feeds you, but he [Don Jr.] can’t wait for these four years to be over.”
People Magazine spoke with a friend of Trump’s sons who confirmed that Eric and Donald Jr. hate their role as First Sons.
“Eric and Don, they never wanted this” the friend said.
Another individual from the Trump inner circle told people that “Don can’t do any deals, because he’ll be overly scrutinized. He just goes to work every day and is miserable.”
Part of that scrutiny, according to People Magazine, is Donald Jr’s meeting with a Russian lawyer and lobbyist (who happens to be a former Russian counterintelligence officer) to obtain dirt on then Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
In a stunning move, Don Jr. posted his emails regarding the meeting on his Twitter account, which only made his life more miserable.
Norman Eisen, chief White House ethics lawyer for President Barack Obama, spoke about those emails which contained an offer to exchange damaging information on Clinton.
That’s an illegal offer and his response (in an email) is “I love it” so that right there is the offer and the acceptance of this criminally prohibited foreign government help.
People Magazine adds that:
Richard Painter, the chief White House ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush, considers the actions “treason.” “It is betraying your own country in the hands of a foreign adversary,” Painter tells PEOPLE. He notes that under the Bush administration, Don Jr. would have been in custody and brought in for questioning.
