It’s been found that Donald J. Trump is NOT really Donald J. Trump Jr.’s father. Based on genealogy reports, he’s actually his brother and, shockingly, he was at one point, decades earlier, his sister. Geneticists believe this is the reason for his small hands.

The “state” of California was never actually ratified. Mexican migrants forged the documents used to claim statehood in 1850. Hence, President Trump has now declared all California imports to be subject to tariffs, penalties and fines.
