Industrial Strength Irony

When the commercial grade will not do the job, there is always industrial strength irony. Thanks much, little Trump:

Trump’s son: The media is very cruel

BY MARK HENSCH –

Eric Trump said Friday that it hurts him watching the media’s treatment of his father on the 2016 campaign trail.

“The media is very cruel,” Eric Trump, 31, told host Elizabeth Hasselbeck on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” “The political process is incredibly cruel.”

That was two years ago, before things began to get serious. How has it been going since? Apparently not much better:

Eric Trump says Donald Trump’s haters are “not even people”

WEDNESDAY, JUN 7, 2017 07:57 AM CDT

Eric Trump, President Donald Trump’s third child, is a bit upset at his father’s political opponents. Tired of people who are being mean by not allowing Trump to do whatever he wants, he won’t even think of them as humans anymore.

“I’ve never seen hatred like this,” Eric Trump told Sean Hannity Tuesday. “To me they’re not even people. It’s so so sad.”

Sad? You say, sad? I say Industrial Strength Irony.

Eric. Eric! You need to come to grips with the fact that your father is a groper of women, an insulter-in-chief, and a liar of the first order. The best thing that can be said about your father is that he breathes air, and he takes up space. It sort of goes down hill from there. Allow me to review:

While we’re at it, Eric, who is it that is not human?

New York Attorney General Looking Into Eric Trump Foundation

By Dan Alexander and Matt Drange

The office of the New York attorney general, which has been investigating the Donald J. Trump Foundation for months, is now looking into the Eric Trump Foundation, after a report in Forbes exposed practices that seem to violate state laws.

“The attorney general’s office is looking into the issues raised by this report,” said Eric Soufer, the communications director for the New York state attorney general.

The Forbes item details the prosecutor’s concerns. Continuing:

Nonprofit legal experts say there are plenty of things for the attorney general to investigate. For starters, the Donald J. Trump Foundation donated $100,000 to the Eric Trump Foundation, which in turn paid a Donald-Trump owned property. That payment was made explicitly to offset costs for the fundraiser, according to Ian Gillule, a former employee at Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, New York. Leaders of private foundations, like the Donald J. Trump Foundation, are prohibited from using charity money to benefit their own businesses.

Eric, people can be so mean. And yes, I am having a go at being  ironic.
