Frederick Friedrich Trump 2.jpgTrump's grandfather Friedrich Trump was among the first to die of the "Spanish" Flu on May 30, 1918.

The photo to the left was taken the year of his death.

He was thrown out of Bavaria for draft-dodging (a family tradition) and moved to Seattle where he began the Trump fortune by running a restaurant and whorehouse (true story). He later expanded his holdings with more hotels, restaurants and whorehouses in Canada to serve the needs of prospectors during the Yukon Gold Rush.

In March, our very stable Dear Leader pondered the historic death toll caused by the flu and had these words to say:
"When I was hearing the amount of people that died with the flu, I was shocked to hear it. Over the last, long period of time when people have the flu, you have an average of 36,000 people dying. I've never heard those numbers, I would've been shocked. I would have said, 'Does anybody die of the flu?' I didn't know people died from the flu."
