Eric Trump’s Glorious Lack of Self-Awareness

Eric Trump’s Glorious Lack of Self-Awareness October 21, 2019

I’ve been saying all along that one of the hallmarks of the Trump family is a complete lack of shame and lack of self-awareness. Eric Trump provides the latest example by ranting about how “sickening” it is when the children of politicians benefit financially from their parents holding high office. Seriously.

“So where does Joe Biden get off being so pompous and above it all?” Pirro asked.

“If I was doing the same thing that that family was doing, I’d be in jail,” Eric Trump said.

“Why is it that every family in politics enriches themselves?” he asked. “It is sickening.”

How is it possible to go through life this incredibly unaware of one’s own contradictions? This at a time when his father tried, and finally withdrew, to host the G-7 summit at one of his resorts, when his other resorts have made millions of dollars from direct government payments and from businesses, PACs and foreign governments holding events at them in order to curry favor with him, and when his own aides are complaining that he relentlessly tries to sell foreign leaders on using his resorts around the world. How is it possible to be this shameless?

And of course, he said this on Jeanine Pirro’s show. She’s just as shameless as they are, so he certainly isn’t going to get called out on it there. A real journalist would have nailed him to the wall.

"I thought it was a case of lie-abetes."
