Calling all animal lovers: Trump’s sons are proud murderers of endangered species

Some people are posting this picture as a joke. Don Jr. bringing down an elephant (under highly controlled hunting) and cutting off its tail is kind of ironic. But it’s really just sick, down to the clean knife above.

Don Jr. made his big debut tonight and some say he made a big splash and helped “humanize” his father.  But he and his disgusting brother, Eric, deserve nothing but scorn for the series of wild animal kills that spread across Twitter tonight.

I was not aware of their depravity towards animals until tonight. The folks calling Don Jr. “Patrick Bateman” on Twitter were spot on.

From The Daily Beast:

Back in 2012, photos surfaced of the elder Trump’s sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, proudly posing with the carcasses of dead animals they hunted while on a big-game hunting expedition in Africa. The photos showed Donald and Eric posing with a lifeless cheetah, Donald clenching a knife along with the bloody, sawed-off tail of an elephant, and the pair posing next to a crocodile hanging from a noose off of a tree.

Here are Trump’s sons holding up a dead cheetah, all smiles:

How quickly the press forgot about Donald Trumps spoiled kids being exotic animal killers but I didn’t.

I guess this is the dead croc:

Horrible people doing horrible things,

More Daily Beast:

The Trump boys were hunting in Zimbabwe—the same country where Cecil was killed—and though Zimbabwean animal conservation groups looked into the incident, the hunt was deemed perfectly legal. Once the photos went viral online, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted (and then deleted): “Not a PR move I didn’t give the pics but I have no shame about them either. I HUNT & EAT game.”
Later, Donald Jr. clarified his thoughts on the big-game hunt in an interview with Deer & Hunting magazine in August 2012.

“I think what made it sort of a bigger story and kind of national and even global news was that I didn’t do what a lot of other people do, which is immediately start apologizing for what I am and that I’m a hunter and all this,” Donald Jr. told Deer & Hunter. “I kinda said, ‘No, I am what I am. I did all those things. I have no regrets about it.’”

CORRECTION: It has been noted several times in the comments that the Trump kids are holding up a dead leopard, not a cheetah. Apologies for the mistake. I relied on the news story instead of my own eyes.

  1. The Trump boys seem like more polished, more socially acceptable, and more educated versions of that despicable and substandard primate, Ted Nugent.

      • You’re right. But it’s hard to go far enough down the species scale to find a comparison for old Ted. I look after garden slugs and have a PETA insect saver, so I guess Ted and his ilk need to be in a class by themselves.

  2. This is a terrible picture. Cutting off a dead elephant’s tail makes Junior look like overly violent boy. But I hope he has redeemed himself by protecting the public lands – in our world, only hunters have the ability to save them from being destroyed. We’ve got so much development going on now in my small town I fear for wildlife.

  3. “Lots for sale”, “Land for sale” everywhere. I realized I hadn’t seen any deer for awhile, where can they go? When I first moved here years ago, there were herds of them. I finally saw two, a mother and yearling fawn, over the weekend. I’m seriously considering buying up the lot behind my property just to have somewhere for wildlife.

    • Developers are getting to be as dangerous as hunters. Some animals will be killed by builders for being nuisances. Others will be killed by traffic on all the new/enlarged highways. Lord Man is squeezing the life out of our fellow beings.
