Never mind Donald Trump Jr.’s Russia meeting

I’d be happy to see him thrown in the slammer for the wildlife he’s blown away, alone!

A Brief Commentary by Doug Draper

Posted July 15th, 2017 on Niagara At Large

“The children asked him if to kill was not a sin
‘Not when he looked so fierce’, his mummy butted in
If looks could kill it would have been us instead of him
All the children sing

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?”

      from The Beatles’ song ‘Bungalow Bill’

Check out the following two disgusting photos from about seven years ago – the first one of Donald Jr. (left) and his idiot brother Eric doing a grip and grin with a wild cat they shot on safari, and the second of Donald Jr. – he’s a “good boy,” his old man insists – posing cheerfully with an African buffalo he apparently bullet-drilled down.

If these two rich, white boys like stalking around in the fields and woods so much, all suited up in camouflage, gum boots and totting a gun, why don’t they do what tens of thousands of other young Americans do and volunteer to serve in the armed forces for the nation their daddy claims he wants to put so first and make so great again?

Maybe four or five tours in war-torn regions of the Middle East would teach them a few things Donald Sr., who bragged he was a great athlete, then suddenly had a bad foot when it was his turn to serve in the war in Vietnam, about duty to country.

I don’t get how all of these poor struggling people across the American hinterlands can be so supportive of a guy who, at least as far back as his grandfather,  hasn’t had a single member of his immediate family, including himself and any of his kids, who has served in the armed forces.

Yet it is hard to see Trump give a second thought, to the extent he thinks at all, to sending their kids off to fight and die. All while his kids go off to Africa and blow away some of the last of the great wild cats.
