Trump Family Friend, Hugh Hefner's Son, Reveals Surprising Thoughts About President

Back in 1990, then-businessman Donald Trump appeared on the cover of Playboy magazine with an attractive woman. Fast forward to today, and someone that wasn’t alive when the cover came out claims that he’s ‘personally embarrassed’ by it. As the Daily Mail shares, that person would be 25-year-old Cooper Hefner, the current CCO of Playboy.

If that name sounds familiar, that’s because he’s the son of the magazine’s founder, Hugh Hefner. Could that possibly be why Cooper rocketed to the top of the company at such a young age? No word on that, but we have a sneaking suspicion that it’s at least in the realm of possibility. In any event, Cooper’s all hot and bothered about something other than the magazine these days.

He finds himself verklempt over something that happened before he was even born. That pesky Trump cover is causing the young man to be upset, and he wants people to know about it.

“We don't respect the guy,” he said during a recent interview. “There's a personal embarrassment because Trump is somebody who has been on our cover.”

Hmmm. Alright. So your daddy put Trump on the cover of a magazine before you were even thought of. Trump is now the President of the United States. This makes you upset. You feel the need to tell that to a reporter. Does your lack of respect for the office of the presidency also extend to any Trump supporters that may have purchased the magazine in the past?

If so, will you be refunding their money? Morally, how can you reconcile taking the money of those that support a man that has caused you a ‘personal embarrassment,’ and you have also pointedly stated that the company as a whole doesn’t ‘respect the guy?’ There will be no moral reconciling taking place, and that tells you all you need to know about the substance of his remarks.

Moving on, Cooper educated readers by informing them that Trump was elected due to 'reactionary cultural conservatism' that’s similar to what happened during the Eisenhower era.

How enlightening. All this time, Trump supporters have been walking around thinking they simply voted for the candidate they preferred. Now they know better, and it’s thanks to Cooper.

The self-described liberal did discuss other things during the interview. He notes that the magazine made a big mistake by deciding to stop featuring naked women in the confines of its pages. Cooper has rectified that situation.

“Yes, there are lifestyle components to Playboy, but it's really a philosophy about freedom and, right now, as history is repeating itself in real time, I want Playboy to be central to that conversation,” he noted.

Sounds like daddy’s company isn’t the only thing that he’s taken from his accomplished father.

“I suit up in my dad's pajamas for our Midsummer Night's Dream party, it's a nice note to the past," Cooper added. "It would be a major mistake - ridiculous - to wear them to the office. I think about the Playboy philosophy constantly, but I have my own point of view. It's what will have to carry me through.”

That it will, Cooper. That it will.
