trumpskittlesWhen Donald  Trump Jr.  breezily compared Syrian refugees to a bowl of Skittles, it revealed once again the Trump Culture so coldly detached from today’s bloodily inhuman  conflicts. At 38, “Skittles” Trump, as he shall now be known,   is  the dauphin who someday will inherit billions from Daddy’s purse and sees no reason to cast himself today as a worry wart over other people’s hardship.

As news sources begin taking a closer look at him, they are finding copious evidence that he has become the poster figure for right-wing militants, racists and other  radical groups  that  joined his father to make America great.

Reuters reported that Junior Skittles appeared on a conservative Utah radio show described  by the Southern Poverty Law Center  as “racist and anti-Semitic”. He apparently also has a pal in  James Edwards, another conservative talk show host.  Edwards says his  show promotes  a “proud, paleoconservative Christian worldview”  and dismisses any views  the show is the work of “white supremacists”.

Skittles  Trump also  denied evil intent in an Instagram that pictures him and the Trump family with Pepe the Frog, which was lifted as the mascot of the “alt-right” – the hood ornament of white nationalists, and anti-Semites. Junior Skittles  said, however  that he had never heard of Pepe the Frog.  That sounds a lot like Trump  Sr.’s. reaction to another iissue in which he insisted that he knew nothing of  David Duke or the Ku Klux Klan.

As the New York Times reported of Junior Skittles other life, “If his sister Ivanka Trump has become known for her polish and message discipline, he has distinguished himself by wading frequently  into the shadows  of white supremacy and anti-Semitism, incendiary  language and conspiracy theories.”

Like father, like son.  Which leads me back to the profound words of Oscar Wilde:  “No man is rich enough to buy back his past.”
