Why Donald Called His 4-Year-Old Son a "Loser" The Trump Files/Mother Jones



Until the election, we're bringing you "The Trump Files," a daily dose of telling episodes, strange but true stories, or curious scenes from the life of GOP nominee Donald Trump.

If you're hosting a TV show that claims to be a "roadmap to the American Dream," who better to turn to for tips on success than the Trump family? So in 2006, CNBC's Donny Deutsch brought Donald Trump, Jr. onto his show, The Big Idea, to get the "next-generation billionaire secrets" on how to make it big. Trump Jr.'s lesson, passed down from his dad at an early age, was simple: paranoia.

Seven o'clock in the morning, I'm going to school—hugs, kisses, and he used to say a couple things. 'No smoking, no drinking, no drugs.' I think a great lesson for any kid. But then he followed up with: 'Don't. Trust. Anyone. Ever.' And, you know, he'd follow it up two seconds later with, 'So, do you trust me?' I'd say, 'Of course, you're my dad.' He'd say, 'What did I just—' You know, he thought I was a total failure. He goes, 'My son's a loser, I guess.' Because I couldn't even understand what he meant at the time. I mean, it's not something you tell a four-year-old, right? But it really means something to him."

1. The mind of a sicko

The most disturbing part of that is him telling a kid to not trust anyone. WTF kind of life lesson is that?

3. I'm convinced that the Trump family is the second coming of the Borgia family

Perhaps that is the curse of paying too much attention to history.

6. That's troubling.

And yet, I am not at all shocked. I loathe his kids but I guess I can understand why they are so insufferable. Makes you wonder what Barron has experienced.
