Eric Trump tweeted that he “hates” disloyal people. Funny he should mention that.
The list of former Trump friends and associates that have turned against the president continues to grow each day.
By now, we’re all familiar with him responding badly to criticism. But he appears to have taken the fallout from Omarosa Manigault Newman particularly hard. Some even say it has left him “unhinged.”
That reaction has apparently spread to the Trump family. Eric Trump posted to Twitter on Thursday night and was presumably taking a shot at Newman when he wrote:
“I truly hate disloyal people.”
It didn’t take long for a legion of people online to respond to the unintentionally hilarious post with reactions ranging from the absurd to perfectly insightful.
The responses were hilarious, overwhelming and the exact opposite of what he was expecting.
“Tough guys” like the Trumps like to talk about loyalty while displaying none of it themselves. There’s an old understanding that loyalty is earned. For some, there’s the misunderstanding that it is inherited or bought. Perhaps Eric Trump thought he’d sound strong and businesslike.
Instead, it was, put simply, an “epic backfire.”
Epic backfire 👌🏻

After all, it’s hard to talk about loyalty when you and your family are literally under investigation for colluding with an American adversary.
I truly hate traitorous people

I mean, right?
And funny you should mention it…
Like people who cheat on their first wife with their second wife and then cheat on their second wife with their third wife and then cheat on their third wife with Playboy models and porn stars? Yeah, those people are the worst…

I mean, if only there were a transparently disreputable academic institution that could give out degrees in absurdity. Maybe something like…

But c’mon Eric.
I’m just curious…
What kind of response did you expect?
