The media are “lunatics” that Donald Trump “is fighting every single day” according to his second eldest male spawn, Eric Trump, on Fox News. Politico:
Eric Trump said Wednesday he supported his father’s racist Twitter post, which the House formally condemned in a resolution the previous evening. He called the so-called squad of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) an “absolute clown show.”
“I love the tweet, ‘If you don’t love our country, get out. Leave,’” Eric Trump said. “You know, if you complain about our country, you know, go to somewhere — go experience somewhere else in the world. I have seen a lot of the world, right? We have it so great in America. America is doing so well.”
He added: “I’m not saying America doesn’t have certain problems. Go see the conditions around the world. And you will be so fortunate you live here. We are blessed to live in this country. And if you’re not happy about it, I like his message. Leave.”
So is that the new 2020 slogan? Make America Leave Again? Check out Eric’s demeanor here. It’s like somebody put meth in his Count Chokula.
ERIC TRUMP claims on Fox & Friends that "95 percent of this country" is behind his father's message. (His approval rating is actually about half that.) pic.twitter.com/wm27V1MMLj

95% huh? It must be the people in that alternate universe who keep generating alternative facts that he’s speaking of, who poll that way. Here in this dimension, the RealClearPolitics polling average ranks Trump’s approval rating at 44.4 percent and his disapproval rating at 52 percent — which if you add those figures, comes to 96.4 percent, which is more or less 95. Now, Eric can’t read and Fox News probably taught him to always interpret high numbers in Trump’s favor, so maybe that’s how he arrived at the figure.
Meanwhile, Eric’s draft-dodging daddy amplified the leave sentiment and apparently this is Trump’s new mantra. While leaving the White House himself to go to North Carolina, Trump said, “If people want to leave our country, they can. If they don’t want to love our country, if they don’t want to fight for our country, they can [leave]. I’ll never change on that, no.”
So much for e pluribus unum. Maybe we should take that motto off the national seal and replace it with posse abrire — “they can leave.”
