Eric Trump just made himself a laughingstock by exposing how reporters do journalism

If there’s one thing you can always count on the Trump boys to do, it’s to take every possible opportunity to try to earn daddy’s attention and favor by following in his footsteps.

That did not go so well this afternoon for Eric Trump, who thought he was landing a solid dunk on the fake news media and the (“Amazon lobbyist!”) Washington Post but instead made it clear that he fails to possess even a meager understanding of how journalism works.

Washington Post reporter David Farenthold won a Pulitzer Prize in 2017 for his incredible reporting on the corruption in the Donald J. Trump Foundation and the Trump Organization and hasn’t taken his foot off the gas for one minute since.

It would appear that Farenthold sent his contact information to various members of the Trump Organization in case any of them ever wanted to speak to the press about what goes on behind the scenes.

This, of course, is fairly standard operating procedure for reporters, but Eric Trump seemed to think that he had stumbled on a real “gotcha” moment. Calling them “tactics,” Eric took to Twitter to call out Jeff Bezos and the Washington Post.


We’re sure Jeff Bezos and the editors at the Washington Post are very proud of Farenthold’s work and are quite pleased to know that he’s doing his due diligence at the Trump Organization.
