Like father, like son: On Wednesday, Eric Trump joined his father in attacking Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, echoing the president’s remarks on how the New York Democrat “begged” for marketing campaign contributions.
“I remember Kirsten Gillibrand when she came into his office every three days to ask him for money and ask for major campaign contributions,” he stated throughout an interview on WABC Radio with Rita Cosby. “There is no one who wanted to get into his office more than Kirsten Gillibrand.”
On Tuesday, President Trump unleashed a sexist assault on Gillibrand on Twitter, implying she traded intercourse for cash and calling her “used.” His outburst got here after after Gillibrand stated he ought to resign over the a number of allegations of sexual misconduct towards him.
An aide to Gillibrand instructed the Washington Post on Tuesday that the New York senator had solely one assembly event with President Trump in 2010. Ivanka Trump was current throughout the assembly, in response to the aide. ( Refinery29 reached out to Sen. Gillibrand’s workplace for remark and has but to listen to again.)
In the interview, Eric Trump stated the senator’s criticism “follows the whole [Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer playbook” and it is a “distraction.” He added that the revival of the sexual misconduct allegations towards the president in latest days is the “distraction of the week” and stated the accusations are false.
“It’s total nonsense,” he stated. “That’s been the playbook in our government for so long: distract, disrupt, hurt, bash, defame, do whatever you can for your own political gain. It’s sad that we don’t have more morals or character or whatever it is.”
President Trump has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by greater than a dozen ladies. He has denied all of the allegations and has claimed he is by no means met any of his accusers. However, there’s proof that he’s met at the least six of the ladies who’ve accused him.
