Clearly, Eric Trump is just as arrogant and utterly stupid as his father, and he proved that yesterday when he made an appearance on the Fox News show Outnumbered.
Eric was discussing the 2016 race for the White House and decided to say that his daddy had come from “nothing” to become “the epitome of the American dream.” Trump’s dense son began his defense of dear old dad by declaring:
“He’s gone from practically nothing to a man who’s just–“
One of the panelists, Democratic strategist Julie Roginsky, wasn’t about to let Eric get away with that gigantic lie, and she told him:
“Nothing? He got a million bucks. Come on, Eric.”
As Donald Trump himself has admitted, he did indeed get $1 million from his father, Fred Trump, when he graduated from college and entered the world of New York real estate.
But Eric Trump would not be deterred, adding:
“He epitomized what America’s all about: Opportunity and working hard and being able to achieve your dreams and what you want to succeed, right? It’s no different than a (Mark) Zuckerberg, right, who went out with a great idea like a Facebook and developed this idea and built it and grew it and grew it and grew it. That is achieving something, right? And I think it’s very different than a person who has been a career politician.”
Actually, it’s very different from Mark Zuckerberg, who didn’t have it handed to him on a silver platter like the asshat that spawned you and your siblings, Eric. Also, Mark Zuckerberg hasn’t gone bankrupt numerous times or failed to pay contractors and vendors who did work for him. And Zuckerberg is a philanthropist. Your father likes to claim how generous he is, yet he hasn’t put a dime of his own money into the foundation that bears his name since 2008.
Eric Trump is almost as big of a whiner as his father. And both of them love to lie about everything. Like father, like son.
