Primaries. What are they? How do they work? How does one “vote” in a “primary”? Is there something I’m supposed to do here? These are questions that are typical for a betch or bro who probably only follows politics once every four years (and only if it’s interesting). These questions are not typical, however, for people whose dads are running for president.
I give you Eric and Ivanka Trump, who will not be able to vote for their own father in the upcoming New York primary because they forgot to register to vote. Considering this news comes on the heels of a major Trump loss in Colorado, I’d put this at above forgot-your-birthday and only slightly below knocked-grandma’s-body-over-at-wake on the You Fucked Up Scale (a very important scale for all children to monitor at all times).
Trump, who went on Fox & Friends earlier this week, had this to say:
“They feel very guilty,” Trump reiterated. “But it’s fine. I understand that. I think they have to register a year in advance and they didn’t. So Eric and Ivanka, I guess, won’t be voting.”
For what it’s worth, the deadline to register to vote in New York was March 25th, 2016.
