Kevin Trump

That there on the left is my future father-in-law Kevin. On the right is Donald Trump. Here’s the story behind that silly sign:

While watching Celebrity Apprentice a while back, I noticed that Kevin is the spitting image of The Donald. He talks like him, has the brain and the business sense, and — aside from Trump’s bad hair — they look exactly alike.

Now this resemblance probably only shows itself if you know Kevin well, but I swear to this day I can’t watch Donald Trump on TV without stating, “Holy cow! He looks just like him!” over and over again to Sean.

I told Kevin of the resemblance during a phone conversation and I believe his reaction was “Duh!” as if everyone had noticed the similarities before and I was the last one to get the joke.

So Kevin went away on a business trip back in January. He works for the same company as Sean and did a two-week training in Minnesota (if you remember, Sean spent five weeks there back in October) and so it was our pleasure to pick him up from the airport.

I thought it would be funny to make a “The Donald” sign to bring with us to flag him down. I spent a whole day making this sign and when we got to the airport Sean and I decided that maybe it would be embarrassing for Kevin to see this sign waiting for him at the airport. We thought he might take it the wrong way or become offended, so I left the sign in the car when we picked him up.

I gave him the sign once we were in the car and he laughed a bit and took the sign with him with his luggage once we arrived at his house.

But the best thing about this sign and the whole fact that my father-in-law is Donald Trump, is that I went over to Kevin’s house tonight and that sign was still proudly displayed IN THEIR KITCHEN.

His wife Michelle says that he won’t throw it away.

And as much as I can’t say that I particularly like Donald Trump, I will say that I absolutely love my future father-in-law.
