“To me, they’re not even people"

The promised wall between the Trump Organization and the Trump presidency is no more—if it ever existed to begin with. On Tuesday evening, Eric Trump, one of the Trump children supposedly managing the family business while their father manages the nation, went on Fox News to complain about the Democratic Party in an astonishingly vitriolic attack.

“To me, they’re not even people,” the Trump scion told Sean Hannity about Democrats. “It’s so, so sad. Morality’s just gone, morals have flown out the window and we deserve so much better than this as a country.”

Striking a self-righteous tone, Trump said of the Democrats, “They try and obstruct a great man; they try and obstruct his family.” It is not clear how the Democrats have tried to obstruct the Trump family. Perhaps the reference was to the existence of federal ethics laws.
