What's the old saying?  Oh yeah, "with friends like that, who needs enemies"?

I know.

Books about Trump are a cash cow.

I'm becoming more and more cynical with each release.

Well, Melania is still probably jealous because The Donald is so hot about his own daughter. Creepy incestual implications.

Yeah, I saw that also. No love for Ivanka, there. The Secret Service is likely the only way to prevent that cat fight.

Yeah, he thinks his daughter is hot, and is proud of her.  My husband thinks our daughters are beautiful (they are) and says so frequently.  I think my son is drop-dead handsome (he is).   We would date them if they weren't our children.  Does that make us perverts?

My husband and I also have two lovely daughters. He and their uncles and grandfathers admire them both for their beauty and intellect, but none would EVER think of them in that "If I was younger, and not a relative, I would date them". Just gross.... sorry.

Why not?  If they were not relatives and were in an appropriate age group, what would be gross?  I've never actually thought of that, but even if I had, what would be gross?  You're conceptualizing dating your children, which IS gross.  However, if they were not your children, or any other relative, the  thought of dating them would be a natural response to their attractiveness.
