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.

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.

"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.)

Adorable Dexter and his new chew toy. Thanks Chewy Claus.

True

Every holiday season, millions of kids send letters asking for everything from a new bike to a pony. Some even make altruistic requests such as peace on Earth or helping struggling families around the holidays.

But wouldn’t the holiday season be even more magical if our pets had their wishes granted, too? That’s why Chewy Claus is stepping up to spread holiday cheer to America’s pets.

Does your dog dream of a month’s supply of treats or chew toys? Would your cat love a new tree complete with a stylish condo? How about giving your betta fish some fresh decor that’ll really tie its tank together?

Or do your pets need something more than mere creature comforts such as life-saving surgery?

U.S. Soccer star expertly handles an Iranian reporter’s loaded questions about race.

Tyler Adams’s response proves exactly why he’s the captain of the US soccer team.

Tyler Adams expertly handles Iranian reporter's question

Reporters are supposed to ask the right questions to get to the truth but sometimes it seems sports reporters ask questions to throw you off your game. There's no doubt that this Iranian reporter who was questioning Tyler Adams, the US soccer team captain at the press conference during the World Cup had an agenda that didn't involve getting to the truth.

It's not clear if the questions were designed to throw the young player off of his game or if the goal was embarrassment. It really is hard to tell, but Adams handled the unexpectedly harsh encounter with intelligence and poise when some may have found it justified for him to get angry.

Idaho pet squirrel amazingly thwarts a would-be burglar in resurfaced viral video

The suspect was identified by the scratches the squirrel left.

Idaho pet squirrel thwarts a would-be burglar.

Ahhh, yes! The attack squirrel. Every home should have one, or at least, that's what an Idaho man whose home was protected by his rescue-squirrel-turned-pet might think. Adam Pearl found Joey, his pet squirrel, in his yard, abandoned as a baby and unable to fend for himself. Pearl took him in and bottle-fed him until he was big enough to eat on his own.

The unique pairing continued for 10 months until a man looking to burglarize Pearl's home got the surprise of a lifetime. He was attacked by the squirrel! The fluffy-tailed critter thwarted the man's plan to rummage through Pearl's belongings.

One can only imagine the confusion and terror of being attacked by something that would've gently eaten out of Snow White's hands. The burglar was apparently after the homeowner's guns and likely wasn't expecting a squirrel to go, well, nuts on him. It gets even better though.

Three different types of blood donations.

The AIDS epidemic that began in the early '80s cast a stigma on all men who have sex with men, regardless of their HIV status. The idea that gay and bisexual men were somehow dangerous to the general public because of a health crisis in their community added to the stigmatization that already came with being LGBTQ.

In 1983, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned all men who have sex with men from donating blood. This rule stood until 2015 when the FDA lifted the lifetime ban for gay and bisexual males and limited it to men who had homosexual sex within the past year.

In 2020, the FDA eased restrictions on men who have sex with men again, due to a blood shortage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The abstinence period was shortened from a year to three months.
