The Trump family must be feeling the noose tightening as they wait for James Comey’s live testimony on Thursday, because they’re acting like cornered animals.
On Tuesday night, Trump’s middle son, Eric, appears on Sean Hannity’s show, and said,
I’ve never seen hatred like this, and to me they’re not even people. It’s so, so sad, I mean morality is just gone, morals have flown out the window. We deserve so much better than this as a country. You know, it’s so sad.
You see the Democratic party—they’re imploding. They’re imploding. They have no message. You see the head of the DNC, who is a total whack job. There’s no leadership there. And so what do they do? They become obstructionists because they have no message of their own. They have no solid candidates of their own. They lost the election that they should have won, because they spent seven times the amount of money that my father spent. They have no message, so what do they try and do? They try and obstruct a great man, they try and obstruct his family, they come after us viciously, and its truly, truly horrible.
Let’s look at this extraordinary statement in greater depth.
First, for a son of one of the most prolific liars who has ever held office, his complaint about “morality” is especially absurd.
Second, Eric calls DNC chair Tom Perez “a total whack job.” His father called James Comey “a real nut job.” Sound familiar?
Third, his “their not even people” remark evokes comparisons to Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment made about Trump’s supporters during the 2016 campaign. If it is unacceptable for her to have said that, it’s unacceptable for Trump’s surrogate to say this. Trump’s hypocrisy is showing once again.
Fourth, he claims Democratic legislators “have no message of their own…no solid candidates of their own.” The Dems’ “message” is everything Trump is against, and their candidates will sweep the House in 2018.
Fifth, he said, “I’ve never seen hatred like this.” Really? Not even when you hear your father screaming at the television and at aides in the West Wing, as he has reportedly been doing lately?
What do you think?
