Editor’s Update:

This article was originally published in September 2019 and was based on observations gathered on social media of what appeared to be a violation of normal practices regarding wheelchair-accessible seating. The Tribune has since learned that the section in which the family was seated was simply capable of being converted to an accessible area and had a sign reflecting that capacity — it was not reserved exclusively for disabled or differently-abled people.

Full disclosure: This correction stems from a notification from Facebook that even content we believed to be true at the time will count as a “strike” toward a reduction in the distribution of our articles. We do not know if any such restriction will be lifted after this correction. We were never contacted by Facebook or by any fact-checking site prior to being penalized for an article we believed was true at the time we published it.


Our apologies if this article somehow affected your perception of us as a trusted news source. However, the content accurately reflects what was happening on social media the day this event took place, and we are not altering the actual content of the article — the headline and excerpt have been changed.

It seems that Donald can’t do anything these days without his squad of sycophantic children in tow and that includes giving one of the drabbest, most ridiculous speeches that the UN General Assembly has ever seen.

As Donald delivered his “low energy” address that had even his staunchest supporters snoozing the day away in their seat, his four oldest children were all sitting front and center to ensure that their trust funds stayed intact by listening to daddy dearest ramble on about nonsense for a good half an hour.

Hell, even Trump’s youngest daughter Tiffany, who generally stays out of her father’s spotlight anyway but even more so lately (after Donald’s former secretary spilled the beans on her Pop’s feelings regarding her rotund midsection) had her questionably-sized behind in a seat today.

That led us all to wonder just how much allowance was at stake if they didn’t show up with their smiling faces and blind support.

Not only were Trump’s own spawn there with bells and whistles on, but they even dragged their significant others with them — with Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner, Don Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, Eric’s wife Lara, and even Tiffany’s billionaire boyfriend Michael Boulos in attendance.

So you may be asking, what makes this particular instance of the Trump children sucking ass any different than the rest?

Well, it all boils down to where they chose to sit.

In the course of Trump’s address, Twitter users were quick to notice that every last member of the Trump spawn crew appeared to be seated in a handicapped-accessible section. The speculation turned out to be untrue, but at the time it did not stop commenters from expressing their disgust:
