Donald Trump Jr. Defends African Hunting Trip

Earlier this year, the public responded with outrage when photos emerged of Donald Trump’s sons with animals they killed on their 2011 African hunting trip. The gruesome photos included Donald Jr. and Eric standing next to a dead crocodile hanging from a tree, and Donald Jr. holding a tail severed from the body of an elephant.

Trump responded at the time, saying that he’s “never liked” that they love to hunt. Their hunting trip has also been investigated, after the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force alleged that the two used a non-registered safari firm.

Considering that and the outcry over the photos of their hunt, you might be wondering if the two feel any differently about their killing spree. Well, Trump Jr.’s response should clear up those questions. According to Teddy Hilton, he said “I think what made it sort of a bigger story and kind of national and even global news was that I didn’t do what a lot of other people do, which is immediately start apologizing for what I am and that I’m a hunter and all this. I kinda said, ‘No, I am what I am. I did all those things. I have no regrets about it.'”

In case you weren’t already angry, he adds “Because they’re used to these other guys, perhaps with slightly weaker personalities, just kowtowing to their calls and everything like that…If I’m in the right, I make sure I let people know it … I guess within the hunting community, a lot of people gave me some credit for that. It gave me more flack from the other guys but if they’re not gonna understand or they don’t choose to, I could care less.”

“Weaker personalities?” Hey Donald Jr., real men (and women) are kind to animals! It doesn’t take a strong personality for someone armed with weapons to kill an animal and pose with their body like it’s a trophy!

    There is a lot of money in animal killing, that is why it continues. Only wealthy people and poachers can kill big game. The wealthy have a lot of money, but they are very poor humans.

    This subspecies of Homo sapiens should be haunted out,

    YOU, Trump Jr, are an asshole and an idiot! Hunting for sport is disgusting! Obviously Daddy didn’t do a very good job raising you did he? Takes a big man to shoot innocent animals with a weapon. Filthy stinking Pig!!!!!

What About Zero Waste?

Going vegan must be at the heart of any environmental discussion.

Why it doesn’t matter if the Impossible burger is healthy

The Impossible burger doesn’t need to be overtly healthy – it just needs to be vegan.

France’s ban of faux-meat branding won’t stop veganism

I’ll take “mycoproteinous food tube” over a tube of dead pig any day.
