Eric Trump Reveals His True Feelings About the 'Left Wing' Attacks on His Family

Under fire due to a Forbes report about possible mismanagement of his charity golf tournament, President Donald Trump's son, Eric Trump, appeared on Sean Hannity's show Tuesday evening to defend his family. And what he said has Democrats up in arms.

With the Trump administration being obstructed at every level and beset by scandal, Trump implied that those who oppose his father's administration are something less than human.

“I’ve never seen hatred like this,” Eric told Hannity. “To me, they’re not even people. It’s so, so sad. Morality’s just gone, morals have flown out the window and we deserve so much better than this as a country."

But it's Eric's morality that's being questioned after the bombshell Forbes story, which was published on Tuesday afternoon. It reveals how the Eric Trump Foundation golf invitational went from an extremely successful and efficient event in support of pediatric cancer research to what appears to be a profit-generating scheme for the Trump Organization.

Eric had previously claimed the tournament was able to raise great amounts of money with virtually no cost because his father donated the use of his course. But as Forbes found, "it's clear that the course wasn't free - that the Trump Organization received payments for its use, part of more than $1.2 million that has no documented recipients past the Trump Organization."

The story also accuses the Trump family of violating state and federal tax laws, breaking laws against charities "self-dealing" (using donated funds for personal purposes), and of using the charity to cash in on the revenue generated by the Trump presidential campaign.

Repeating, over and over, that he'd "raised $16.3 million" for "the greatest hospital in the world," Trump blamed the "out of control media" and the "sinking Democratic Party" for the decline of morals in the United States, and for the personal attacks on his family - including what he claimed were calls for his unborn child to be aborted.

"They don't have a message, they don't have leadership. It's just the worst of the worst, Sean," Eric told Hannity of the Democratic party.

Unsurprisingly, the reaction to Eric Trump's dehumanizing of his father's opposition was harsh:

Democrats also went after Trump by releasing a statement.

In the statement, Democrats called the interview "an attack on working families," and accused the Trumps of trying to divide the country.
