Eric Trump Blasts Media for Being Out of Shape Compared to Trump: ‘They Can’t Keep Up With Him’


After the White House’s doctor held a briefing aimed at putting to rest claims that President Donald Trump is not physically fit for office, his son Eric Trump went on Sean Hannity’s show today to say that — in fact — the media are actually the ones with bad health.

Eric went back to the time on the campaign trail in which he accuses White House journalists of not being able to “keep up” with the president as he traveled across the country.

Trump’s second son said the following while appearing on Fox News tonight:

“This is actually insane… ‘Does he watch too much TV, does he eat too much ice cream?’ Are you kidding me? By the way, if I look around that room, half the people in there I remember from the campaign and I remember them sleep deprived, drinking cases of Red Bull because they couldn’t keep up with [my father]. As he was on his on seventh speed of the night, they were in the back, not speaking in front of 30,000 people, seven times in a row in four different states. They were totally falling asleep, they can’t keep up with him.”

Additionally, Eric listed his father’s health accomplishments as never catching a cold and having “more energy” than anyone he has “ever met.” He also shrugged off any questions regarding Trump’s physical or mental health as simply a media “charade.”

“I mean the guy is incredible. I watch this charade and I think to myself, ‘Give me a break guys,'” said Eric.

Eric went on to have a hilarious gaffe in the interview as the first-son somehow managed to botch his little brother Barron Trump’s age, telling Hannity that he’s 12 even though the youngest Trump is actually 11 years old.
