The history of the Presidency shows some Presidential relatives have been far from ideal in their behavior.
Just in recent times, we had Roger Clinton, the half brother of Bill Clinton, being given a pardon from a drug conviction.
We had Billy Carter, who caused grief when he visited Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi during his brother’s Presidency.
Others had siblings who were drunkards, and some had relatives engaged in some questionable business dealings, as some of the sons of Franklin D. Roosevelt.
But no Presidential Family can match that of Donald Trump.
It has been leaked that Trump’s three oldest children, all with his first wife Ivana, are potentially about to gain pardons.
This includes Donald Trump, Jr; Ivanka Trump; Eric Trump; and Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, all of whom have engaged in shady business dealings, and potentially more to be uncovered.
Even pardons will not prevent prosecution of Trump’s children and son in law in New York City and New York State, so there will be plenty of headlines about these disgraceful Trump progeny!
Trump himself may be the second President, after Richard Nixon, to be pardoned, or even try to pardon himself, which is doubtful legally.
In any case, if any of Trump’s children, or Trump himself, accepts a pardon, it is a sign of guilt, as Gerald Ford said after pardoning Richard Nixon in 1974.
And add to this list, third wife Melania Trump, who has displayed disgraceful behavior and a mean spirit, and has contributed nothing positive to the history of First Ladies!
With seven weeks to go until Joe Biden and his wonderful wife, Dr. Jill Biden, take over the White House, we cannot easily wait out the nightmare of that much more time with the Trumps as the First Family!
