Oops! Trump's Kids Forget To Register To Vote

Two of Donald Trump's own kids forgot to register to vote Republican and can't vote in this years Presidential primary.

Talk about a massive schlonging. Two of Donald Trump's own kids *forgot* to change their voter regisration to Republican from Independent and won't be able to cast votes for their father during Tuesday's primary. Because New York is a "closed primary" state, they would have had to change their party affiliation by October 9th, 2015. Whoopsie!

On Monday Trump confirmed, during a call-in to Fox News, that Ivanka and Eric had never registered to vote in New York's primary. Oopsie.

Trump said:

“They had a longtime register and they were, you know, unaware of the rules, and they didn't register in time. So they feel very, very guilty. They feel very guilty. But it's fine. I understand that. I think they have to register a year in advance and they didn't. So Eric and Ivanka, I guess, won't be voting.”

So your dad is running for president, vows to build a YUGE wall, deport millions (or is it billions) of people and make the Confederate Flag the official flag of the United States, but his own kids can't remember a simple registration date that millions of other New York residents do remember? They were "unaware" of the rules?

Pretty dang embarrassing when your kids don't even care enough to make sure they can vote for you.

Worse yet, Ivanka is the face of Trump's GOTV effort. Double oops!

Schlonging, aisle one, cleanup needed.
