When Donald Trump tells that story you can hear by the tone of his voice how his father failed him. I am only conveying this to show no matter if you're rich or poor - even if you become president - you're going to feel like your parents failed you.

[MERIT] bottom line: just assume everybody's parents failed them, and then you won't have the inclination to ask such personal questions. idk ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
