Biography details Trump Jr.’s hard-partying college days
WASHINGTON – During his partying days at college, a drunken Donald Trump Jr. once told rivals from another school, “That’s all right! That’s OK! You’re gonna work for us some day!” according to a new book.
“Born Trump,” written by Vanity Fair senior reporter Emily Jane Fox, sheds new light on the president’s four eldest children, including anecdotes from the eldest son’s hard-partying time at the University of Pennsylvania, the school President Trump attended as well.
This particular incident happened 1,500 miles away from the Ivy League school’s Philadelphia campus at a bar during a spring break trip to Jamaica, as Donald Trump Jr. and his fellow Penn students bemoaned their basketball team’s loss in March 1999 to Florida during a March Madness game.
“The inebriated fans on both sides erupted. Slaps on the back. Shots to celebrate or numb the pain. Sloppy high fives or consoling pats on the back,” Fox wrote. “But Don Jr. took it a step further. He climbed atop a table in the bar and started a chant that he’d hoped would catch on with the rest of his fellow disgruntled Quakers in the room.”
One Penn student who was at the bar pointed out, “These were kids from a state school.”
“The subtext wasn’t hard for anyone to figure out. And it just came out so easy,” the student told Fox of Donald Jr.’s outburst.
That incident was part of a broader narrative about the eldest Trump son’s college days.
He was given the nickname “Diaper Don” by his peers for his habit of passing out from too much drinking in classmates’ beds.
“Diaper Don would wake up in some stranger’s dorm room or off-campus apartment or bedroom in his frat house, covered in piss, walk back to his own room, and get blitzed that evening or the next anew,” Fox wrote.
“Born Trump” hits bookshelves Tuesday.
