I'm sure that many of you are like me and would like to see The Donald would fade back into his reality show world and work on raising whatever those animals are that live on his head. But this story is just too shadenfreude-licious to ignore.

I'm sure that many of you are like me and would like to see The Donald would fade back into his reality show world and work on raising whatever those animals are that live on his head. But this story is just too shadenfreude-licious to ignore.

Donald Trump's anti-Obama campaign has apparently reached "embarrassing dad" status, because his three eldest kids recently staged an intervention of sorts advising him to tone it down, reports the New York Daily News. Eric, Donald Jr., and Ivanka "showed a lot of respect" during the mid-October meeting, a source tells the paper, "but told him he’s worked too long and too hard to build up the reputation he has. They understand completely he’s always been outspoken and that he likes attention, but this is too much."

Gee, you think? Just because the man has become a national joke...

Of course, Trump denies that this is the case, but really, does anyone believe anything he says now?
