AUDIO: Trump’s Son Says His Dad Ignores Media Criticism So He Won’t Kill Himself


Eric Trump, like his father, lashed out at the media during an interview in which he claimed that his Dad is treated unfairly. Eric Trump on Tuesday suggested to conservative radio host Joe Pags that his father “tunes out” criticism so that he wouldn’t give in to suicidal thoughts or suffer from depression.

Eric Trump said that “politics is the nastiest business” he’s “ever seen” because his father is heavily criticized.

“I mean, just the evilness and the hatred in that world is unlike anything I could have fathomed before,” he said, according to Raw Story. “And no matter what he does, they’re going to hit him on it and they’re going to go after him, and it’s the swamp and it’s a corrupt system.”

“It’s the media, the mainstream media, who does not want him to succeed. It’s government who does not want him to succeed… No matter what he does, he’s going to get hit, and listen, I think you have to tune it out,” he continued. “You obviously have to be tuned into it, but at the same time you have to take it all with a grain of salt.”

“If they weren’t talking about you, you wouldn’t be doing something right and it’s important to keep it in context, otherwise quite frankly you’d probably end up killing yourself out of depression,” Trump’s son said. “But he’s doing a great job,” Trump said of his father who has yet to pass any major legislation.

Donald Trump does not ‘tune out’ criticism from the media. He routinely lashes out at the New York Times, CNN and the Washington Post after reports on his many scandals are revealed.


Eric Trump also said that his father, who failed to denounce the ‘Unite the Right’ Nazis who marched in his name, isn’t a racist.

“There is no racist bone in my father’s body. He is the greatest guy in the world,” he said.

Meanwhile, as the death toll in Texas hit 19, Donald Trump announced that he wants to give tax cuts to the rich. You know, people like him.

  1. If I thought that were possible, I would install giant speakers across from the White House and play a loop of Rachel Maddow and Keith Olberman.

  2. Hey Eric! Tell your dad to ask the Obamas how they handled the constant criticism when they were in the WH. Maybe President Obama will share with “President” Trump how he handled people questioning his (Obama’s) place of birth.

  3. Let’s finish this thing. Come on Media, it’s time, amp up that criticism to level 11. We need to be louder than loud. Let’s pop that balloon of the bumbling buffoon for good.

  4. I say we leave him in a room with Maddow being shown on a loop and give him a bunch of spoons and water guns and see what happens.

  5. Truman was tough enough to take it,–
    Johnson was tough enough to take it,–
    Obama was tough enough to take it,–
    Trump fines it easier to bitch and complain
