According to President Trump’s son, Eric, the media is being way too mean to his daddy, and it really needs to stop before he becomes suicidal.
On Tuesday, Eric was a guest on the Joe Pags radio show, and he whined like a baby about politics being “the nastiest business I’ve ever seen, adding:
“I mean, just the evilness and the hatred in that world is unlike anything I could have fathomed before. And no matter what he does, they’re going to hit him on it and they’re going to go after him, and it’s the swamp and it’s a corrupt system.”
Well, you know the old saying, Eric: If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
Next, Eric resorted to the old Trump trick of blaming the media for the fact that his father is an incompetent, pathological liar who cannot manage to get anything accomplished:
“It’s the media, the mainstream media, who does not want him to succeed. It’s government who does not want him to succeed… No matter what he does, he’s going to get hit, and listen, I think you have to tune it out. You obviously have to be tuned into it, but at the same time you have to take it all with a grain of salt.
“If they weren’t talking about you, you wouldn’t be doing something right and it’s important to keep it in context, otherwise quite frankly you’d probably end up killing yourself out of depression.”
Wonder if Eric can hear me playing the world’s smallest violin for his bigoted, sexist papa.
And should you think that Donald Trump is racist, Eric set us all straight on that one, too, insisting:
“There is no racist bone in my father’s body. He is the greatest guy in the world.”
If there’s not a racist bone in his father’s body, why doesn’t he prove he has a spine and not say there were some “fine people” marching with the neo-Nazi alt-right crowd in Charlottesville, Virginia? Probably because he doesn’t want to alienate that important segment of his political base.
