Not my Dad, Tiffany Trump’s Dad.
Ah well he says lots of dumb things but doesn't mean badly. The public can be pretty brutal. Particularly against someone who isn't TV pretty. They go after Melania and she was a goddamn model. They'd show no mercy for Tiffany. Especially since she's a trump. They showed trumps decapitated head hell yeah they'd go after Tiffany for her weight. I don't doubt it one bit.
He said it, not the media. His assistant said he didn’t want to be photographed with her. No respected news organizations are going after Tiffany, she’s considered hands off territory. She’s still pushing her legal studies at Georgetown, she isn’t considered one of his adult children. She’s kept a much lower profile than the Bush Twins since being thrusted into this role she never thought she’d have. Of course I do t think it’s coming from a place of malice in Mr. Trump’s part. I can easily see him even thinking she’s having a hard time and will bounce back, we don’t want those pictures in the library because she wouldn’t want them. She was skinny and will be again. Not puffy cheeks in the library. But it can and does hurt even more when you’re a little puffier than usual and shunned from photos. I think Tiffany is really dong a fantastic job of walking a thin line between being respectable, low key and taking law classes at Georgetown which has to be pretty fucking awkward. She’s trying to live the life she planned and life within the bounds of 24/7 bodyguard and public opinion. I think she is great, string support from her Mom but damned if the rest of us wouldn’t gain a little weight going from a 00 to Maybe a size 8 under that kind of pressure. Chelsea Clinton made a very big point of standing up for Tiffany’s privacy as a child of a President along with Barron’s.
I’m really sorry to hear that, I wish I could provide more support without knowing all the details. Sometimes parents don’t see their children as people yet and don’t realize the impact of their words. Sometimes we all say things without actual thought of the effect.
No need to feel sorry. It hasn’t bothered me since I learned to think for myself, but i appreciate the sentiment. Yeah I was an extension of their religious beliefs. But it galvanized me against it. True true.

I like your statement and find it to be somewhat partially true. Like a guy can only step on the same take so many times, so maybe eventually he learns not to mention a woman’s weight off cuff if it’s say his daughter of wife. But generally absent of that life lesson men will state the obvious. I often appreciate this. A girl’s Mom May feel the same and go about addressing it in subtle but more harming ways. In fact, the Mom May often see the daughter as a reflection of herself and be even more disapproving of weight gain and rejecting. My one caveat would be to say a man speaks what is obvious to him based on perception and preconceived notions of the person in question. Tiffany Trump was tiny, she gained weight. I don't know if I would consider her overweight not knowing how skinny she was before. But that’s a lot to add to someone’s plate. She was skinny until her Dad became president, changing her life maybe not for the better. Lots of pressure, law school now Dad thinks your fat and doesn’t want pictures with you. That’s a lot. But he obviously never wanted that to get out, realizes that it is hurtful and is trying to control the situation. That just really sucks, I feel for her. I gained less than 10 pounds when I first started a real job after college and my brother made a comment about all the weight I gained. He didn’t mean anything but it hurt. I lost the weight within 6 months after I got a routine but sitting at a desk all day is a big change from sprinting from class to class, waiting tables, working out and walking everywhere. Law school plus secret service controlling your movement has to be a change. I know Jenna Bush gained a lot of weight during her fathers first term.
I’m sorry to hear that. 🤗
