Eric Trump, who promised to stay out of politics over a year ago, complained on Feb. 1 that Democrats in Congress did not applaud enough during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Jan. 30.
Eric told the Fox News show “Fox & Friends” that Americans should be “united on God” in an apparent reference to a non-existent theocracy:
And I honestly think they’re scared. And if I look around [during Tuesday’s speech], they don’t have the personality to go against him. They were sitting there. They looked, quite frankly, defeated.
I mean, they didn’t stand for anything. When he said ‘In God We Trust’ — when my father mentioned “in God we trust,” the guiding principle of this country, no one stood.
Eric failed to mention that First Lady Melania Trump did not stand during the words “in God we trust.”
Eric continued his whining while Fox News played a “montage” of Democrats refusing to stand:
You know what, I think it’s actually very said. There are things as Americans we should be united on. And if we can’t be united on God, if we can’t be united on African-American unemployment being at the lowest it’s ever been. Honestly, I think they’re scared. I really really think they’re scared.
Eric failed to mention that the U.S. was still under President Obama’s economic policies — budget and taxes — in 2017, but his father is claiming the success of those policies.
