Eric and Donald Trump Jr. are in trouble over some pictures taken in Zimbabwe of the pair and several exotic animals they hunted such as an elephant, crocodile, water buck, civet cat and antelope.
I grew up in a small town that happened to be very hunt-friendly. It was ordinary for the guys (and some girls) to walk around in full camouflage, the scent of cow manure clouding around them like Pig-Pen.
I’m not “against” it. I understand that shooting and eating a deer isn’t a bad thing when you’re substituting it for some factory-bred hormone-injected steak meat from Burger King.
ON THE OTHER HAND, when I hear about rich people wandering around in Africa with rifles aimed at nearly-endangered animals for no other reason but to kill, it pisses me off. When attacked on Twitter by righteous activists and concerned citizens (he responded to every single Tweet) Donald Trump Jr. justified his actions by saying the species he hunted are “over-populated,” like he was doing them a favor.
Apparently the meat went to local villagers, which is fine, but way to play the white hero card…
As if you rushed into the savanna grasslands and fuckin’ rescued a bunch of starving children by handing them crocodile and water buffalo flesh like it was Halloween candy? Grow up. Go ask daddy for another check, you insolent fuck.
