All too frequently bad things happen to really good people but sometimes, perhaps not often enough, bad things happen to really bad people. While it wouldn’t be quite right to outright celebrate the latter, it would be a lie to say that one doesn’t get at least a little joy out of seeing it happen.
CNN reports that Eric Trump, the president’s troglodytic son who helps to run the sprawling, deeply corrupt Trump Organization empire, says that he was spat on while at a restaurant in Chicago.
Eric Trump — whose father is currently running a series of migrant detention camps along the border where children are dying in cages and sexual abuse is rampant — believes he deserves sympathy and so complained about the incident to right-wing online rag Breitbart News, the establishment formerly run by sentient tumor Steve Bannon.
The president’s son — who has been accused in the past of using his Eric Trump Foundation to divert money from a children’s cancer charity to his father’s businesses — was understandably upset to be treated the way many of his father’s racist supporters regularly treat marginalized groups.
“It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems,” the president’s son told Breitbart, coincidentally providing a description of just about everything his father has ever done.
Presumably, Eric Trump was targeted because he is a vocal, full-throated supporter of his father’s hateful, cruel agenda and is working tirelessness to ensure that this country is saddled with another four years of his authoritarian reign come 2020. Proving that he is indeed a partisan hack, he blamed the Democratic Party for the spitting incident.
“For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility. When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning,” he went on, sounding almost as senile and rambling as his chronically incoherent father. Here’s a little tip Eric, if you’re so loathed that people are spitting on you in public, you’re not hitting any of the criteria for “winning.”
Secret Service took the spitting employee into custody with the help of the Chicago Police Department. At this time little is known about the individual or the motives beyond the obvious presumption that the incident was fueled by an understandable hatred of the odious Trump family and what it has done to this country.
While this publication certainly cannot endorse or encourage the spitting on of anyone, I think we can all agree this truly couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
