Earlier last month, Donald Trump Jr. asked to have his secret service removed due to privacy concerns. It was strange to read that headline. You knew there was some nefarious reason why Junior wanted to be alone. Of course, people will wonder and create these extravagant reasons in their heads. However, whatever Junior wanted to do was so important to him, that he didn’t care what people thought. Turns out that Donald Trump Jr. wanted to hunt an animal. Hiding in a bush, a distance away, and shooting a defenseless animal apparently is very important to Junior.
To each his own. If Junior’s desire to shoot an animal is that difficult to contain, he can do what he wants. Lots of people hunt. However, a brief inspection into Donald Trump Jr.’s life reveals a very dark and troubling childhood. Maybe Junior’s insatiable thirst to kill is a much more sinister urge.
Scott Melker went to school with Donald Trump Jr. at the University of Pennsylvania. Scott wrote a stunning description of Junior in college. Junior was a drinker of epic proportions. According to Melker’s Facebook post, Junior would drink until he was passed out.

Most articles about Don Jr., illustrate his desperation to escape his life. When his father’s extramarital affairs with Marla Maples came public, Don Jr. was devastated. He didn’t talk to his father for a year and even refused to attend the wedding. Don Jr. was sent to a very strict boarding school in Pennsylvania.
Classmates at the boarding school said that Don Jr. was very quiet. In addition, they said that his father did not visit him very much.
“I remember nothing of his dad except him showing up to give a bad career day speech,” Greenlee, whose older brother played squash with Don Jr., told the Guardian. “I don’t remember his father coming to see Donny play squash or visiting Eric in the dormitory.” TheGuardian
Junior even corroborated his days of debauchery. In a 2004 interview, Junior admitted,
‘To be fairly candid, I used to drink a lot and party pretty hard,” Don Jr. admitted in the 2004 interview. ‘And it wasn’t something that I was particularly good at. I mean, I was good at it, but I couldn’t do it in moderation.’ People
Don Jr.’s drinking was such a problem in college, that they called him Diaper Don, because he would regularly piss himself.
Psychologists will tell you that Junior’s college drinking habits are an escape mechanism. Donald Trump must have hated his life. Healthtalk.org explains that young people with troubled lives, use drugs or alcohol in hopes of forgetting their lives. Melker also shared a story in which he witnessed Junior getting smacked by his father, because he was not wearing the right stuff to attend a Yankees game.
After he graduated from college, Don Jr. was working as a bartender (go figure) in Aspen. A few months after he graduated, he was arrested for public intoxication and spent half a day in jail.TheGuardian
Apparently, growing up Trump isn’t as easy as one would think. The other week, Ivanka admitted in an interview that she suffered from depression as well. CNN
The Trump children are no different from the animal that Don Junior hunts. Both are trying to escape something.
