What Trump Billionaires Do For "Fun."
Trump defends his big-game hunting sons as they are shamed on Twitter for posing with their trophy kills - including a leopard and an elephant
"Donald Trump today leapt to the defense of his sons for hunting endangered wildlife in Africa. The Republican frontrunner was questioned about his sons Eric and Donald Jr after Mia Farrow tweeted a picture of them The property magnate made his remarks while giving a press conference at his Trump Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire, Scotland, during the Women's British Open.
Trump spoke for a full 30 minutes, giving an insight into his future diplomacy skills. But when questioned about photographs of his sons with a dead leopard in relation to the killing of Cecil the lion, Trump simply said his 'sons love to hunt'.
[Trump] said: 'My sons love to hunt. They are members of the NRA, very proudly. I am a big believer in the Second Amendment. 'But my sons are hunters, Eric is a hunter and I would say he puts it on a par with golf, if not ahead of golf. 'My other son, Don, is a hunter. They're great marksman, great shots, they love it. 'I em, like golf. I don't do that.' But he could not be drawn into comment on the specific issue of shooting endangered animals.
The pictures of his sons surfaced three years ago and showed them taking part in a hunting trip to Zimbwawe - the same type of trip which resulted in the death this month of Cecil the lion."
They hunt for food, say the Trump brothers in the article. I wonder how they cooked that beautiful leopard, the waterbuck they paid $2,000 to kill, or the tail they sliced off the elephant they slaughtered.
Creep runs deep in the Trump family.
