Don’t you just hate it when you have the perfect name for your firstborn — but you’ve already given it to your dog?
Eric Trump and wife Lara are having a baby boy — their first child — in September. But the name they wanted? It turns out his name is taken by another member of the household.
“We really loved the name Charlie, but we’d already named our dog that, so it’s out,” said Eric.
Added Lara on the name situation: “We sort of screwed ourselves over there.”
We don’t want to be overly snarky about how there’s about to be more Trump DNA in the world. Actually we sort of did want to be snarky, but that’s terribly unfair. This will be a totally innocent baby, who cannot be held responsible for any of the actions of Trumps before him. Babies are adorable bundles of potential. And we’d like to imagine that this might be the one Trump who turns it all around. Anything is possible, you guys!
If you can believe it, this will be the ninth grandchild of Donald Trump — the least benevolent, least grandfatherly human on the planet. Anyway. What were we saying? Babies are nice.
