Apples And Trees, Don'tcha Know

You have probably grown tired, as I have, of keeping up with the Trump family via Twitter. Knowing that our "President" will continue to badger the Mayor of London until some new shiny object comes along should be sufficient evidence to let our attention slip, ever-so-briefly, from social media. Instead, let us turn our focus to the MSM (mainstream media), and have a peek at what's happening with the forgotten Trump: Eric.
Perhaps Eric Trump believed that the shadow cast by his father and brother and sisters would obscure his presence on the scene. Sadly, the glaring lights have only served to accentuate all the Trumping going on around this great land of ours. On Fox News’s “Hannity” Tuesday night, Donald's next-to-youngest child said, “I’ve never seen hatred like this. 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." He was talking about Democrats. Decrying the ugliness of business in Washington D.C., he continued: “You see the Democratic Party, they’re imploding. They’re imploding. They became obstructionists because they have no message of their own.” 
Not that it's easy to get a word in edgewise, but Democrats are spending a good deal of time these days standing around slack-jawed as attacks on various groups and individuals mount. Muslims. Women. Anyone with a pre-existing condition. Leaders of foreign nations. Mayors of London. In the meantime, the current message Democrats are sending is "What now?"
Well, if you're sticking with the Eric thread, how about the Forbes report that has him siphoning off funds from his cancer charity to put back into his business? In the big book of Trump, it seems like a completely natural response to the rest of the world. Sure, these kids may have cancer now, but I've got deadlines to meet. Deals to make. Besides, young Eric might rationalize, kids with cancer aren't even people anyway. Do they play golf? 
Next question, please. 
And now, back to your regularly scheduled twits. Tweets.
