Journalist Virginia Heffernan has accused Donald Trump Jr. of being abusive towards women when he was just a three-year-old.
Responding to a snarky tweet from Bloomerg’s Steven Dennis, where the left-wing reporter taunted Trump Jr. over his “slick” hair, Heffernan, a former staffer for Politico and the New York Times, dropped the bombshell that as a three-year-old, Trump Jr. responded with a “Fuck you, bitch” after a teacher named Anna asked him to move his mat.
According to Heffernan, the experience was so traumatic, Anna “quit teaching forever at the end of that year.”
She quit teaching forever at the end of that year. It’s not a # metoo story but it was extremely disorienting. Many of us are essentially in service roles to the rich, and it takes its toll.

People responded in various ways to the news of Anna’s career-aspirations being shattered by a three-year-old.
Some believe this anecdote is a teachable moment that speaks to important social and political issues:
I used to manage homes for wealthy people and it drained me. They thought nothing of calling me at 2am to ask me to go see who their spouse was with at their beach house. Sure bc I wasn’t sleeping or anything.

Others blamed former President Ronald Reagan:
Before Reagan, wealthy people felt obligated to do good works. He freed them from that & w/o that balance they’ve deteriorated spiritually.

Most, however, ridiculed the “snowflake” Anna:
Hahahahah- what a snowflake being bullied by a 3yo. BTW , I call BS on the story. Get a life

Hahaha she quit her career because of what a 3 year old said? Sounds like your friend just needs to grow up.

Earlier this week, NBC’s Megyn Kelly interviewed women who claimed to have been harassed by President Trump. One woman recounted how uncomfortable she felt when the real estate billionaire asked for her phone number. Another claimed Trump groped her in front of the late Ray Charles, who was blind.
Thus far, Trump Jr. has not responded to the allegation that he engaged in misconduct as a three-year-old.
