If one were going to draft a shortlist for individuals to be honored with a fictional “Father of the Year” award, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would likely not be on that list. Trump’s scorned ex-wife, Ivana, who Trump humiliated in the press decades ago, broke her silence about Trump’s lack of fatherly ambition. Considering Trump’s vile comments he has been churning out for over a year now, culminating in his bragging about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it due to his wealth and fame, it is hardly a surprise that he might be the best dad in the world.
Ivana Trump, 67, was present at a “Lifeline” benefit in New York City where she lambasted Donald Trump for being a poor father. She said, “I brought up the children single-handedly.” The children in question are Donald Trump Jr, 38, Ivanka Trump, 34, and Eric Trump, 32 who have all been traveling the country supporting their father’s candidacy for president. Ivana Trump went on to say:
Donald wasn’t really interested in the children until he could talk business with them. When they turned 21, I handed them over to him and said, ‘Here’s the finished product. You can take them from here.’
Donald Trump’s lack of playing a pivotal role in his children’s early years seems to have been brushed aside by them as all have nothing but kind words to say about their absentee father. Now in his golden years Trump has numerous grandchildren, but being the egomaniac that he is the public rarely has an opportuninty to see him interacting with any of them as well. Big surprise.
