The Family Trumps

Certainly my readers will confirm that I am on the record as favoring reproduction. And although I am not into eugenics per se, i.e. wanting only smart and good-looking people to have children, I am certainly into anti-reverse-eugenics. The tendency of smart and good-looking people to have less children than others in recent years has created a reverse eugenics which does not bode well for the future of human society.

Therefore, when an Anthony Quinn has a dozen children, you won't hear me complaining that it's an ex-Zorba-tent sum.

So, although he is a tad smug for comfort, we will grit our teeth and congratulate Mr. Donald Trump on his wife's pregnancy, wishing them a healthy child at the appointed time. This will be his fifth child, 3 with Ivanna, one with Marla and now one with Melania. We wish her well, too, particularly in view of that little clause in the prenup that must boost her take sizeably if she expands the family.

How will the big kids react as a new heir looms? Look at the Murdoch family for pointers. Rupert's two little kiddies with his late-in-life Oriental wife received a little trust fund that sent the older children into a major snit. As Maxwell Smart's nemesis, noted by Hunter below, would say: "Family discord? What was your first crew?"

I really disagree that it is the stupid people who are breading, you could say maybe that the simple people are breeding with I think is a good thing. Because now that people who’s elitist ideologies involved complex explanations of why children were a burden and ZPG was the way to go are being naturally selected out of the population.

Jay -- I'd have more respect for Daddy Trump if he'd stay married to one woman long enough to raise the resulting offspring to adulthood. But that would put a severe bag limit on the number of trophy wives, wouldn't it?

However, if Wife Number Three (is her name really Melania? It sounds like some kind of skin cancer) actually gets a baby bonus, that is at least better than Rich Guy Jack Kent Cooke, AKA The Most Miserable Excuse for a Human Being Ever to Reside in DC (and boy did he have some competition) who divorced his second wife because she bore his child.

Oh, please, do tell...

So Cooke didn't want one in the oven? Perhaps Mindflame is right that the stupid people are not breading.

(Sorry, Flame, I don't mean to poke fun at you personally. I realize that it's a natural sort of typo. But it worked with the gag. Please understand. We welcome and respect your comments.)
