One thing we now know without any doubt: Ignorance is indeed an inherited trait. Proof was provided in copious quantities Monday evening when Donald Trump’s son, Eric, appeared on the Fox News show “On the Record” and responded to a question regarding his father’s statement at the last GOP debate that when it comes to terrorists, “we’ll do something worse than waterboarding.” What does that mean? Eric’s reply:
“You see these terrorists that are flying planes into buildings, right? You see our cities getting shot up in California. You see Paris getting shot up. And then somebody complains when a terrorist gets waterboarded, which quite frankly is no different than what happens on college campuses and frat houses every day. And, you know, the man would keep this country safe. There is no question about it.”
No different than what happens on college campuses and frat houses every day?! I’m not sure what college Eric Trump atttended, but we never waterboarded anyone while I was attending the University of Georgia and Cornell.
Young Eric, much like his father, loves to run off at the mouth and pretend to be tough, but I’m willing to bet that if confronted by someone they truly felt threatened by, both would soil themselves and beg for mercy.
But we can rest assured that the Trump legacy is indeed in good hands. Eric, just like dear old dad, is a blowhard who talks before he thinks, and he might even take his own run at public office one day. For now, he can go on TV and prove just how clueless he is and always will be.
