    My reply to Junior on Twitter.

    The one in the middle creeps me out. He wants to be like daddy SO bad. Ivaka is the only likable one.

    I always felt like Don Jr. Has always had the leg up on the younger Eric. Out of the three of them I suspect Ivanka has the most brains and will do the best. Then there's Trumps forgotton daughter, Tiffany, who is she again? Baron the youngest, is practically Trumps grandson. I can only suspect he will be treated as such and be the most dysfunctional. It must be weird when your dad is 60 years older and your big brother is 28 older.

    Eric Trump has always reminded me of a gargoyle. Little known fact: he's actually employed by his father as the cheif gargoyle at the top of the Trump Tower property in Midtown Manhattan. While Eric Trump (ET...? Hmmm) may be great at deflecting rainwater off the side of the building, he's little use deflecting delusional/psychotic young men with suction cups.

    Okay, I'll stop being mean. Sorry Eric.

    I've always laughed when Trump says he hires women at his companies and they uses Ivanka as an example. I'm pretty sure that she works for him because she's his daughter.

    It's not a great one. If I were Skittles, I wouldn't like my product attached to such a statement.

    Again, meh. It happens all the time.
    Apple is used to talk about spoiled millennials.
    Comey testified to congress mentioning Google and Gmail as "bad" examples.
    Skittles and bad apples are used in a plethora of examples.
    Coke and McD's are used as examples for society's bad stuff etc.

    Regardless of my disagreements with some of their fathers' policies and actions, I don't recall ever disliking any President's children.

    Ronald Reagan's kids grew on me over time, especially Ron jr. Amy Carter and Chelsea Clinton seemed like normal (if a little gawky) teenage girls. G.W. Bush's daughters brushes with authority seemed forgivable lapses. And the Obama daughters have been models of decorum.

    Those Trump boys would almost certainly break that streak. They seem like spoiled, arrogant jerks.

    Oh and one more thing....
    This makes me proud of my country. Poison pills and zealot killers be damned, I'm glad we can make a positive change in their lives. Hopefully this will spread.

    Does anyone find this picture something motivational or inspiring, if it was you, something you'd hang on your mantle? It's almost like hugging your dead kitty. :rolleyes:

    What makes it even more pathetic (if possible) is the photographer is a refugee himself and is pissed that trump used his pic for this

    Did he sell/give away the copyright? If so, he has nothing to complain about.

    The photograph was originally published on Flickr; which gives people a variety of options under Creative Commons licensing. Many people make images available for "non-commercial" use - meaning you can use it in a school project or similar. Whether a Twitter account for a Presidential campaign counts as "non-commercial" or not is up for debate.

    However, in the case of the image that Eric Trump stole from Twitter, the photographer tagged it as All Rights Reserved meaning:

    And that's the thing about people like Trump, père et fils, when it comes to the law and other people's property. How long do you think Eric Trump would tolerate somebody squatting in a vacant Trump apartment or hotel room? And yet they think nothing of using other people's intellectual property without permission.

    If he put it in a place with Creative Commons licensing the "All Rights Reserved" is superseded (as long as he had the original rights).

    No, it's not.

    People are certainly free to look at the pictures posted on Flickr without restriction. But the Creative Commons license is strictly optional, and merely provides a mechanism for people who do want to allow their work to be used by others to maintain varying degrees of control over it.

    In another unsurprising development, the Trump campaign, Donald Trump Jr. specifically, stole the image used in that tweet. It was posted on Flickr under copyright protection. Also, the photographer is a former refugee himself. It would absolutely be worth my time to sue.

    For the record. I don't like Skittles, I prefer M&M's.
