Eric Trump: ‘It’s Unfortunate’ That ‘People Have Nothing Better To Do’ Than ‘Send A Mean Tweet’

During an extensive interview with the Irish Independent, presidential son and Trump Organization head Eric Trump discussed a number of issues that bother him, namely how mean everyone is to his dad, President Donald Trump, and the rest of the Trump clan, including himself.

After telling the paper how the biggest lesson he learned was how mean politics were and how he was disturbed over the online attacks his half-siblings Barron and Tiffany had to deal with, Eric unironically complained about random peoples’ Twitter and blogging habits.

Going on about pro golfer Rory McIlroy and the amount of vitriol he dealt with after playing a round of golf with POTUS recently, Eric noted that no matter what someone does, there will always be someone who will tweet something critical.

” “Rory is a buddy of ours. Rory is a great guy and an incredible athlete. And, hey, if you played with Hillary [Clinton] and she had won then he would have gotten backlash for that as well. That’s the nature of politics. It is what it is. But do you know what the great thing is? He [my father] is not a politician so it doesn’t matter – they can still go out and have a fun time together.”

He continues: “No matter what side it is with, you are always going to get backlash. You are going to have a few people who have nothing better to do than to sit behind a computer and send a mean tweet. It’s unfortunate, but it’s the nature of the game.” ”

On the day this interview was published, the president sent out these tweets:

And on Easter Sunday, he found time to toss these out into the twittersphere:

So, yeah.

Elsewhere in the conversation with the Irish publication, Eric Trump defended his father’s 16 golf trips in less than three months in office, saying that the president uses golf to relax and bond with others on a professional level.

Nothing was mentioned by the 33-year-old about all of the times his father complained publicly about his predecessor’s golfing habits. For the record, President Obama didn’t play his first round of golf as POTUS until April 26th, nearly 100 days after inauguration.
