Yeah, President Donald Trump's son Eric thinks that the Democrats aren't actually people. Oh, and they have no morals either.
The comment was made when FOX News' Sean Hannity spoke to Eric Trump on Tuesday night about the news surrounding the firing of former FBI director James Comey, according to CBS.
"I've never seen hatred like this," Eric said. "And to me, they're not even people. It's so, so sad. I mean, morality's just gone. Morals have flown out the window."
While not everyone is exactly sure what "not even people" means, it's definitely not surprising that Eric immediately came to the defense of his father (or that Hannity agreed with Trump's statements).
Just the other week, Trump said in a commencement speech that he's being treated worse than any politician ever. The Trump family seems to have united behind the idea that anyone who disagrees with them is not only wrong, but evil. Eric Trump even called the head of the DNC, Tom Perez, a "total wackjob."
Why do they insist on talking about the parties, and the government as a whole, as if they are not actively part of it, and in fact, running it?
On Wednesday, President Trump spoke in Cincinnati about infrastructure and Democrats, according to USA Today. While praising Republicans for working so hard on a new health care bill, he also said there is "total obstruction from Democrats," and that he "takes so much heat for nonsense."
Maybe they're replying to the Democrats' so-called hatred and nonsense with . . . more nonsense? If they've never seen hatred like this, I'm sure it's possible they could research the hatred and racism the Obamas consistently endured while in office and still endure today.
I wish we could expect better from the first family, but at this point, it doesn't seem like it.
