In addition to the report on Eric Trump’s charity in Forbes, he’s also in the news for a crushingly stupid statement made to Sean Hannity, wherein he claimed that critics of his father’s are “not even people” and lamented the death of morality.
“I’ve never seen hatred like this, ” he responded. “To me, they’re not even people. It is so so sad.”
“Morality is just gone,” he continued. “Morals have flown out the window. We deserve so much better than this as a country. It’s so sad — you see the Democratic Party and they are imploding. They’re imploding, they have no message. You see the head of the DNC who is a total whack-job. There’s no leadership there. And so what do they do? They become obstructionists because they have no message of their own.”
And what the hell does “they’re not even people” mean here? They’re suddenly not Homo sapiens? They’ve become another species? They’ve magically transformed in his head into Homo poopyheadius or something? It’s just gibberish.
