Trump’s Praise of ‘Busy’ Antonin Scalia For Having Nine Kids Draws Mockery: ‘Congrats on the Sex, Scalia Family’
Political observers mocked President Donald Trump Friday for an odd remark at a ceremony honoring, among others, late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
As Trump heaped praise on Scalia as a champion of original intent during his time on the Supreme Court, the president listed all nine of the Justice’s children, and he eventually said this as he turned to Scalia’s widow: Maureen McCarthy.
“You were very busy. Wow. I always knew I liked him.”
What happened next? Well, a good portion of the Twitterverse is convinced Trump wasn’t just admiring Scalia for having a big family, but he was also impressed that Scalia and his wife, um, consummated their marriage so many times.
Reaction time: Go!

Also, am I the only one that found Trump’s comments on the Antonin Scalia’s reproductive prowess gross and weird?
