One of the more surprising parts of the past year is the glimpse behind the curtain we’ve had into the utterly bizarre world of the Trump clan. The steadfast efforts of investigative journalists and their deep dive into the proverbial Trump closets have turned up the weirdest kind of skeletons.
HuffPost’s senior reporter Ashley Feinberg is an internet sleuth of unparalleled efficiency, famously ferreting out former FBI Director James Comey’s secret Twitter account.
Her area of expertise is Donald Trump Jr., the President’s extraordinarily stupid son who has used his time in the spotlight to behave like an alt-right teenager, sharing racist memes and making jokes about “triggering snowflakes.”
From his online behavior, it’s clear that the 40-year-old Trump Jr. is a deeply immature person, which still doesn’t explain the comments that Feinberg recently unearthed from a 2007 interview with Adam Carolla, which was recorded at – of all places – the Playboy Mansion.
Ever the gentleman, Don Jr. began by complaining about how hard it was to be at the Playboy Mansion with his pregnant wife, as if her presence was the only thing restraining him from shamelessly hurling himself at the models who work there.
“Can you believe the hell I’m going through? I’m at the Playboy Mansion with a pregnant wife! It doesn’t get worse than that, does it? Now, I love my wife, but that is rough. And I’m going to pay for these statements later on tonight. I’m gonna pay.”
But it was later on in the interview that things got very, very, weird:
HOST: I got one question, Donald Jr.: When you and your pops are in the shower, who’s got the bigger package? You know what I’m saying.
Trump Jr.: You know, and I will get fired for this, but I’m never going to say that I don’t. I will get fired for that. By the way, they’re both pretty substantial I think.
Is this relevant to anything? Not really, no. But it speaks volumes about how deeply Trump’s personal insecurities have tormented his family that his own son boasts about how badly he wants to cheat on his wife and goes to bat to defend his dad’s penis size.
