The President’s hazy-eyed namesake failure is obsessed with Hunter Biden, and as the hell campaign session continues, that obsession looks increasingly Freudian.
This happened on Glenn Beck’s radio show the day after the debate, where Junior claimed that “crackhead Hunter now has a tie, a direct connection to Vladimir Putin. The insult was a New York Olivia Nuzzi of the magazine overheard Junior try on the campaign trail before the debate, before using it on the radio.
And Putin’s smear was a real ‘puppet-less’ moment coming from the kid Trump who infamously met Russian Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016, but was later found by Bob Mueller to be too stupid to collegiate, which some are the very definition of white male privilege. All of this got me thinking about why Junior just couldn’t stop talking about Hunter. Junior is furious. Junior is fragile. Junior is triggered.
As a person with my own poorly spent youth, who for many years was underachieving in a family full of overachievers, I also sometimes feel obsessed with Junior, who himself would have been an extreme drinker himself. college, as he is with Hunter. And as a person sober for 23 years, I understand how difficult it can be to get sober and stay sober, as Hunter has struggled to do.
The irony here is that Junior has five healthy children, enormous wealth, an extremely attractive girlfriend, two bestselling books, and millions of Twitter followers – and none of it seems to have affected his belief that he was wronged by society, wronged by the media, wronged by birth. A lot of people would see being born into a millionaire family a huge advantage in the world but Junior not.
Another irony may be that men are not that different. Both went to private schools, both grew up with powerful fathers, both were athletic and attractive children who had many advantages due to their proximity to power. There were also marked differences. By a New Yorker profile: “Hunter enrolled at Georgetown University in 1988. He and Beau took out student loans to cover their college expenses. Hunter did odd jobs – parking cars at events and unloading sixty-pound cartons of frozen beef – to help pay for his room and board. While after college, Junior moved to Aspen and became a skier.
A normal politician might have qualms about attacking the surviving son of a man who has lost two children and a wife but not Donald J. Trump. During the debates, Trump Sr. attacked the president’s surviving son: “Hunter has been kicked out of the military; he was deported, dishonorably dismissed for cocaine use. Of course, this was not entirely true. Hunter was removed from his post, but he was not in the dishonorable category.
“My son, like a lot of people, like a lot of people you know back home, had a drug problem,” Biden replied. “He passed him. He fixed it. He worked on it. And I’m proud of him. I am proud of my son.
I happen to think that the phrase “I’m proud of my son” said to the public with such intensity and conviction could be the reason Trump Junior hates Hunter Biden so much.
There are countless stories of Trump Senior degrading and humiliating Trump Junior, including telling him once, according to Sam Nunberg in Julia Ioffe’s article in GQ, “Don, you can finally do something for me – you can go hunting. And that’s not to mention the famous story of Senior not wanting to share his name with Junior because of concerns that he might be a loser.
