Chapter 2: Family secrets

If the world wanted to prevent the arrival of a narcissistic, vulgar,  big-mouthed, lying,  misogynic, bullying, immigrant bashing,  racist, alleged rapist, president of the United States named Donald Trump, it would have to  had to have started  at least two generations ago—long before immigrant bashing Trump spoke of building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico to keep out Mexicans, who he characterized as “drug dealers, criminals and rapists,” long before he toned down his  anti-immigrant  rhetoric to say he wants a merit-based system of immigration that will favor people who speak English and demonstrate skills that will contribute to the economy of the United States of America.

Yes, the making of the vulgar Trump started at least two generations ago, when his immigrant grandfather, possessing no skills that would have seemed likely to contribute to the economy of the United States of America, changed the spelling of his name to Trump, which was listed, though perhaps misspelled, on immigration papers as Friedrich Trumpf. It was back then, two generations ago when Friedrich Trumpf, with his new, high-rolling name Trump, made the startup cash for the Trump family fortune in the Yukon region of Canada by opening a restaurant/hotel specializing in food, liquor and rooms where Yukon prospectors could obtain sex for gold.

Christ and the Klan

It was also back then when his immigrant grandmother, Elizabeth, possessing no previously known skills vital to the economic interests of the United States of America, formally opened, after the death of Friedrich, the real estate business that her son Fred and his son Donald would turn into an empire. Perhaps the making of a loud mouth named Donald Trump was overdetermined once she narcissistically decided to bequeath to her son Fred, who was Donald’s father, her maiden name, the very special moniker, Christ, as in Jesus Christ.

Fred Christ Trump would grow up to marry immigrant Mary Macleod and to become a flamboyant real estate mogul with the awful secret from a time before Donald’s birth, that he had been arrested in 1927 at a Ku Klux Klan rally and, according to one newspaper account, had been wearing full Klan regalia at the time. Lying Donald Trump denies not only the Klan membership but also the arrest. The New York Times covered the arrest and listed the address of Fred Trump as the175-24 Devonshire Rd. address where the census indicates Fred Trump and Mary McLeod lived.

Everybody wants Donald Trump to remember something

Could this family secret explain the sharp response to Trump by so-called former Klansman David Duke after this week’s Charlottesville massacre, when a domestic terrorist drove a Dodge Charger into demonstrators protesting a Unite the Right rally featuring American Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. Note there were no shots fired.  Apparently no cops were around. Duke, angered perhaps by Trump’s ambiguous call for an end to hatred on many sides, issued a sharp rebuke to Trump. He said that Trump needed to remember that “it was white people who put him into office.”  Remember or what?  We’ll send the newspapers your dad’s membership card? Duke did not say that, but why did Trump need to remember?
