Patti Davis on being a politician’s kid

Patti Davis, Ronald Reagan’s daughter, write about how “the rules are different for politicians’ children:”

for political sons and daughters, the fear of how you will be perceived as you go about your life, as you pursue your dreams and goals, underlies everything. It’s a toxic way to live. You have to constantly second-guess yourself, as in, “If I were anyone else, this would be a great opportunity, but it’s probably just being offered because of who my father is, and even if it isn’t, it could look that way.”

Though, as she also notes “Trump offspring don’t seem weighed down by any of these considerations.”
