An In-Depth Investigation Into What Donald Trump Jr. Is Thinking About

We've all seen the picture, but do we really ~understand~ it?

...but what became more popular than the writing was the stoic picture of Donald Trump, Jr. that quickly went viral. The picture captures a wide range of emotions: Sad, hopeful, vacant, kind of confused... But while we all laughed at the picture, did we take a second to think about what he was actually thinking about? Here are my guesses.

1. "Did I leave the stove on?"

A classic dilemma that even the president's son must ponder.

2. "Did I leave the cap off of my hair gel? Can hair gel dry out? Shoot, should I go back home and take care of it? I don't want to waste that much hair gel."

We know how much Donald like his hair slicked back, and ruining his hair gel would mean losing the signature DT Jr. look that all the ladies ~swoon~ over.

3. "Maybe I should run for president next... I mean, dad can still make the decisions, but I'll be President Donald Trump, Jr. We could be like the Bush family, but with more hair gel. Damn, I hope I put the cap on that hair gel."

Donald thinks about the future, wondering where life will take him. He also adds a follow up thought about his hair gel. This serious matter is plaguing his mind, and hopefully he found peace with his gel after the photoshoot.

4. "Do I look natural right now? Maybe if I slump my right hand over my leg it'll look like I'm a laid back kind of guy."

DT Jr. goes for a natural look. It seems he's trying to appear to the hipster crowd with his laid back look and plaid shirt. However, he did forgo the beanie and locally-sourced coffee. This was a bold move, but only time will tell whether the hipsters agree with his choices or not.

5. "I think it worked! I look so chill. Look at me, Mr. Cool. Is he thinking about stuff? Nah, he's too chill. He just goes where the wind takes him. Yep, that's me."

DT Jr. reaffirms himself. Confidence is key in photoshoots, and he proves that by giving himself a metaphorical pat on the back.
