The Trump kids and Jared are going to work with Donald.

Most kids would be excited.

But not the Trumps. The Trumps are luckier than most kids.

They get to go to work with their dad every day!

Donald doesn't really seem to like to do work.

He likes to watch TV and yell at strangers on the internet.

So the Trump kids have a lot of responsibility...

...even though Eric is only 33, Ivanka is only 35, Jared is only 36, and Donald Jr. is only 39.

Jared and Ivanka do a lot of important jobs for Donald — jobs that most people don't get to do without years and years of experience.

But they can do them — no sweat!

Ivanka meets with foreign leaders.

And gives speeches.

And goes to important meetings with important people.

Jared is in charge of fixing the whole government.

And making peace in the Middle East.

And fighting ISIS in Iraq.

He has to dress up like a big boy, but that's OK. Jared doesn't mind.

Then there's Donald Jr. and Eric. They run their dad’s old company, so they’re not supposed to come to his new job with him. That would be a conflict of interest.

But sometimes they do anyway. Oops!

Photo by Timothy A. Clary/Getty Images.

They even let their dad give them business advice.

Photo by Timothy A. Clary/Getty Images.

Even though they're not supposed to. Talking to the president would give their company an unfair advantage over other companies.

Double oops!

Leaders of other countries know how much Donald loves his kids, so they like to do nice things for them.

They think if they help the Trump kids out, Donald might do nice things for their countries in return.

They listen when Ivanka asks them to give money to her new foundation.

And they let her build hotels in their countries.

Some countries help Jared build tall buildings too.

Donald was going to get tough on China.

But then a Chinese company invested in one of the buildings Jared builds.

Lately, Donald hasn't been so tough on China at all.

Photo by Jim Watson/Getty Images.

It might seem strange how much the Trumps love Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

Photo by Gustavo Caballero/Getty Images.

But by going to work with their dad, Ivanka, Jared, Donald Jr., and Eric are learning all about what it’s like to be a grown-up.

Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images.

They're getting hands-on experience at a real-life job.

And, best of all, they’re all making their own money!

Photo by Mandel Ngan/Getty Images.

Maybe lots and lots of it. Maybe not.

Photo by Timothy A. Clary/Getty Images.

Maybe even money from some of the countries that do nice things for them. Maybe not.

Photo by Fred Dufour/Getty Images.

We don't know because Donald hasn't released his tax returns.

Photo by Ron Sachs/Pool/Getty Images.

What a good deal for the Trumps!

Photo by Kevin Dietsch/Getty Images.

Donald smiles. He's just happy his kids are happy.

Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images.

And he's happy he can keep on watching TV and yelling at people on the internet.

Photo by Patrick Pleul/picture-alliance/dpa/AP.

"I'm so glad every day is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day in our family," he probably thinks to himself.

And so it was.

(Unless you call your representatives and demand they, you know, do their jobs and start asking questions about all this. Like yesterday.)

Of the 25 actors that have been nominated for an Oscar for playing an LGBTQ character, a grand total of zero of them have been openly queer. The debate on whether or not only gay actors can play gay roles has many sides and nuances. After Darren Criss, who is straight, won an Emmy for playing Andrew Cunanan in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Criss vowed he would never play another gay man because he didn't want to be "another straight boy taking a gay man's role." Actor Ben Whishaw, who is gay, feels otherwise. "I really believe that actors can embody and portray anything, and we shouldn't be defined only by what we are," Whishaw said. Recently, Kristen Stewart also weighed in on some of the complexities around the issue.

Variety recently asked Stewart about the importance of gay actors playing gay characters. Stewart acknowledged the complexity of the issue. "I would never want to tell a story that really should be told by somebody who's lived that experience. Having said that, it's a slippery slope conversation because that means I could never play another straight character if I'm going to hold everyone to the letter of this particular law. I think it's such a gray area," Stewart told Variety.

Over the weekend, an estimated thousands of people ran 2.23 miles to show their support for Ahmaud Arbery, a former high school football player and avid jogger. Arbery was shot and killed in February near Brunswick, Georgia after being pursued in a truck by a former policeman and his son who claimed he resembled someone responsible for break-ins in the neighborhood.

Americans are more interested in politics than ever these days. More voted in the 2020 election than in any other in the past 100 years. Over 65% of the voting-eligible cast a ballot in the contentious fight between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

"People are very excited and paying attention even though there are all this bad news and high 'wrong track' numbers in the country," Nancy Zdunkewicz, managing editor at Democracy Corps, told The Hill.

It's wonderful to see that a greater number of Americans are standing up to be counted and demanding their voices be heard. But it's also the symptom of a deep level of discontent many people feel about their country.
