I will give Eric Trump credit for one thing and one thing only. Whatever is propelling his brothers’ descent – and Twitter’s consensus is cocaine and alcohol, which I cannot report as fact – Eric seems to have avoided that trap. He looks healthy and level-headed.
But my god, is this one dumbass mother…. He’s so stupid, he just…
If you google Eric Trump’s net worth, the number $300 million often comes up. But I read a very convincing article that puts Eric’s worth closer to $25 million. That may not include the condo in Trump Tower that I presume he has, which may be owned by the Trump Organization, but whatever. Yes, the enormous numbers floating around with the Elons and even Donald himself, $25 million seems paltry. But give me fcking $25 million, and I will lead a life of luxury while giving most of it away, living in a hut in Borneo or something. I might even bring a friend. She’s cool that way.
Anyhow, Eric Trump made it quite clear last night on Newsmax or Newsmin or OANMN, whatever far-right show that would have him on that he’s outraged. He was, of course, complaining that dad got indicted (He didn’t really seem to want to get into why dad got indicted). And he went with the Trump theory that it is Alvin Bragg’s job to eviscerate all crime in New York, including shoplifting, before he dares to touch dad – implicitly allowing for the fact that, yeah, Dad maybe did commit a crime.
But his example was so hilarious and so indicative of someone who is wealthy enough that he’s always had someone else to do his shopping. He was complaining that he couldn’t buy Tylenol because it was “locked up behind the glass” at CVS. It is truly something that has to be seen to be believed:
Eric, honey. You can buy what's behind the glass, you just have to ask an associate to unlock it for you.
Bless. Ladies and gentlemen: Eric Trump. Man of the people. https://t.co/jTEQJuhKL3

Well, at least for now, chances are it looks like he’ll outlive his brother. But he’s not smart enough (or loving enough) to arrange an intervention for whatever ails his brother. God, he’s stupid.
