Stupid things at 17

He’s not called Don Junior for nothing.

While speaking about 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, charged with homicide in the shooting deaths of two people and the wounding of a third during unrest in Kenosha, Donald Trump Jr. said, “We all do stupid things at 17.”

The president’s son made the comment during an interview with “Extra” host Rachel Lindsay, a former contestant on “The Bachelor.”

Well, lots of us do, yes – things like getting drunk, getting pregnant, scratching the car, failing calculus, not cleaning up the kitchen when asked. We don’t all shoot two people to death.

“If I put myself in Kyle Rittenhouse(‘s shoes), maybe I shouldn’t have been there. He’s a young kid. I don’t want 17-year-olds running around the street with AR-15s,” he said. “Maybe I wouldn’t have put myself in that situation. Who knows? But we all do stupid things at 17,” he said.

It’s not as if the “situation” jumped up and yanked Kyle Rittenhouse into shooting two people to death. It’s also not as if anybody asked him to take an assault rifle to Kenosha, or as if he were employed to do so.

He’s daddy’s son all right.
