Come on, Everyone. This Is Really Hard for Sad Donald Trump Jr.

Wait! Just let me go get my tiny violin.

Donald Trump Jr., being his father’s son, probably isn’t right about a lot of things, but he’s reportedly right about at least one: he reportedly just wants his father’s presidency to be over. For the rest of us, that’s just daily life at this point.

The information comes from a People story that Trump family friends told them that Eric Trump and Don Jr. never wanted any of this, and that Jr. “can’t wait for these four years to be over.” To that, there is only one response:

Aww, how difficult that must be. He must be very concerned about the refugees who will be needlessly affected by the parts of Trump Sr.’s travel ban that the Supreme Court is allowing to take effect while they decide on the ban as a whole. He must just be really torn up about that. He’s probably also worried about his father’s stated plan to cause the health insurance industry to collapse just so his own team can take credit for picking up the pieces, regardless of how citizens would be affected in the meantime.

Or maybe he’s aching for it to be over because he knows just how many awesome things will be accomplished by the end of it, and he’s just so excited to get there and see his father prove everyone wrong! I mean, Sr.’s contract with voters of all the things he was going to accomplish currently looks like an extremely one-sided game of Tic Tac Toe:

But perhaps it’s just taking a little bit longer than he thought to single-handedly fix the government and everything else about the United States. Oh. Oh. Or maybe Jr. just knows that he’s going to be in for a lot longer than four years of discomfort when Special Counsel Robert Mueller finally finishes his work—thanks to that pesky meeting about the Russian government helping his father’s campaign—and he wants to get it all over with as quickly as possible.

You know, whatever the reason, our hearts go out to the guy who only wanted to run his shady father’s shady company without the ruining of other people’s lives putting a damper on all of his rich bro fun. Life can be so cruel.
