Eric Trump Slams Scarborough for ‘Stupid Comment’ About POTUS on 9/11 Anniversary


Eric Trump joined Sean Hannity tonight and blasted Joe Scarborough for the comments in the op-ed the MSNBC host made about his father President Donald Trump.

Scarborough’s op-ed, headlined “Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could,” said this about the President:

For those of us still believing that Islamic extremists hate America because of the freedoms we guarantee to all people, the gravest threat Trump poses to our national security is the damage done daily to America’s image. As the New York Times’s Roger Cohen wrote the month after Trump’s election, “America is an idea. Strip freedom, human rights, democracy and the rule of law from what the United States represents to the world and America itself is gutted.”

Scarborough called Trump’s attacks on the idea of America a “far graver threat,” and tonight Hannity said this was “so mean and so cruel and so vicious.”

Eric Trump agreed and said, “What a stupid comment. I mean, what an unbelievable stupid comment. Sometimes I watch his show and literally, you almost can’t watch. It’s almost unwatchable. You end up turning it off because it’s crazy.”

He criticized Scarborough for comparing the tragedy of 9/11 when thousands of Americans were killed to “a man who gave up his life to run for Commander-in-Chief to better this country.”

“What kind of stupid comment is this?” he added. “It’s quite frankly the reason that Joe and Mika have no watchers in the morning.”
