WATCH: Eric Trump Says ‘Oh, Stop, He Wasn’t the Guy Who Body-Slammed Anybody, He Can Have Fun’

Oh, please.

Eric Trump, the second son of President Donald Trump, generated eye rolls across the nation in an appearance on Fox News talk show Outnumbered.

When asked about his father’s widely condemned praise of Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) for assaulting a journalist Eric Trump dismissed the backlash against the comments, which came amidst ongoing reports of the brutal murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

“Oh stop, he wasn’t the guy who bodyslammed anybody. He can have fun…By the way, this is exactly why my father won. Because so many people were so sick of the perfectly scripted politician who memorized their little soundbites and they weren’t any fun and they had no charisma, they had no personality. Hey, to go out as a guy who’s a little bit—who is un-P.C. and probably won because he’s un-P.C.— ‘Anybody who body-slams somebody is my kind of guy’ and joke about it and the whole crowd is laughing, like stop.”

Many found the comments vile and were sure to let Trump know that he and his father were the only ones who found the president’s comments “fun.”

Trump directly contradicted statements he’d made on Fox and Friends just the day before.
