  • Crocodile Tears

    Add this to Donald Trump's list of hypocrisies: In announcing his program to "End Opioid Addiction," he said, "I learned because of Fred." This was a reference to his brother, Frederick Trump, Jr. who died at age 43 of the effects of long-term alcoholism.



    The president praised Fred as "...A great guy, great personality, better than mine..." As my dad would say, "Thanks for them kind words." But it bears no relation to how Trump treated his own brother while he was alive.



    Fred lacked the callous, cruel, killer instinct for business of his siblings. In college, he enjoyed partying, and later, his career as an airline pilot. Donald did not approve. Here's a partial list of what he did to his own brother:



    - Before their father, Fred, Sr. died, Donald and his other siblings persuaded him to write Fred Jr. out of his will almost entirely, leaving them with all the money while Fred Jr. got nothing.



    - Fred Jr. thought this was the case, so he challenged the will in court. That got Donald angry because, "Fred sued MY FATHER!"



    - Fred Jr. had a son named William. William had a seizure disorder that cost upwards of $30,000 a year for treatment; an emotional and financial burden Fred Jr. could not afford. That, alone, may have aggravated his drinking problem.



    - In revenge for Fred "suing MY FATHER," Donald cut off all health insurance to Fred's family, including and especially his disabled son. Why? Sheer spite, nothing else.



    So when Donald Trump says he "learned because of Fred," don't believe the crocodile tears. He's lying about this as he's lied about so many other things.

        to be honest, TL/DNR. I assumed it was just another Trump bashing non-story on a slow news day. Now that I've read it, I stand corrected, in that I got the wrong trump. But I'm vindicated, in that it's another DONALD Trump bash, nothing more. Sue me.

          It's 278 words, emerson.
          Maybe you need picture books.
          Anyway, Can't sue you, emerson.
          It will go to arbitration (just the way the republic party likes it).

              Steven Furst died just this year. And you would use his image to attempt to make a poor joke?

                Emerson is "thread shi**ing" here.

                He does not like the content, and cannot argue against the content. So he takes a big dump all over it, making reasonable discussion impossible, hoping everyone will just abandon the thread.

                A clear indicator of this is the fact that he has already posted three times in a thread he claims he did not read.

                  Ironically, this thread sat idle and uncontributed for almost an hour, until ol' Emerson stuck his head in. almost immediately, the usual suspects came rushing in to cluck their tongues, stroke their beards, and talk about "What's to be done with this Emerson Biggens? Suddenly this veritable orphan of a thread has become the hottest piece of internet property since Kim Kardashian balanced a Champaign glass on her ass.

                  Tell ya what, I'll bow out of your beloved but endangered Fred Trump thread. Well, I'll stop contributing, but will check in from time to time to read all of the fascinating content about ol' Fred Trump that is no doubt in the pipeline. Have at it boys, the world is watching!

                    Stop feeding the pigeons. All they do is strut and poop.

                      I was noting the irony of Donald Trump saying that his brother Fred taught him the troubles of living with addiction; in Fred's case, alcoholism. First, if Donald didn't drive Fred to drink, he certainly didn't help the problem. Second, even as he declared war on opiate addiction, the president also ended programs that would have helped addicts. It makes me wonder what, if anything, Donald Trump actually learned about substance abuse.
