Eric Trump is the laughingstock of Twitter this morning after he went on Fox News last night to tout his dad’s “great relationship” with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Putin was in with the KGB, he can read people, and he could tell that Donald Trump was a very strong person,” Eric told Sean Hannity when asked about why Putin didn’t invade Ukraine during the Trump administration.

Eric then pointed to his dad’s “perfect” relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“And what did my father say? ‘You know, Kim, you mess around with us, you will be met with fire and fury, the likes of which you have never seen before.’ Right?” he said. “And then a couple months later, they’re shaking hands in North Korea, and the relationship was perfect!”

When Hannity asked Eric why President Biden hasn’t retaliated against reported Russian threats of using “nukes,” chemical weapons, bioweapons, or cyber warfare, he replied, “Rather than say, ‘We’ll do that to you if you ever dare touch us,’ it just, you know, it seems like Joe gets afraid.”
Eric then claimed his dad would have called up Putin on the phone and said, “‘Vladimir, don’t even think about it!”

Seriously, there’s nothing sadder than the unloved son of a wannabe dictator going on TV to whine about how his pops would’ve handled a phone call with a murderous autocrat.
Related: Eric Trump calls dad from stage to tell him he loves him. This was Trump’s response.
In response to Putin’s attack on Ukraine, the US and its NATO allies have imposed severe economic sanctions on Russia and approved billions of dollars in military and humanitarian aid to the Eastern European country. They have stopped short, however, of making any military moves that could incite open conflict between NATO and Russia and potentially result in a nuclear war.
Here’s what folx on Twitter are saying about Eric’s embarrassing Fox News appearance…

Eric Trump touting his father’s relationship with Putin is funny when you think about how Eric has no relationship with his father.

One has to believe the comments by Eric Trump are satire.

Eric Trump is proud of his daddy’s relationship with murderous tyrants.
He’s also a little jealous.

According to Eric Trump, his father could have just called up Putin and said “don’t even think about it,” and Putin wouldn’t have invaded Ukraine.
In 2020, Eric Trump also claimed his father “literally saved Christianity.”

Why would anyone seek out Eric Trump's opinion on anything let alone a war.
— Brad Beauregard Jr ?? (@BradBeauregardJ) March 15, 2022
I’ll keep asking this: if he has such a great relationship & respect for eachother, why doesn’t he pick up the phone & tell him to stop the war then claim credit for being the peacemaker? Can’t imagine he’d pass on obtaining bragging rights for doing so.

Inept at business, an embarrassment to an embarrassing family and now brags that his dad is hard on dictators, and as evidence brings up how close his dad is with dictators.
No wonder Trump lost all the money left to him by his dad, he and his family are practically non-functional.
Don’t you mean that Eric means that Donald Trump has a HARD-ON for dictators?
That seems about right.
It’s worrisome that a certain group of people are more tolerant of dictators and murderers than they are of gays and Mexicans.
Bosch: Who specifically? I don’t see any conservative leader who likes Putin. Anyone saying a conservative politician wants a dictatorship is ridiculous. The far left though, yes. They want a dictator but with “the right” values. That way if someone is anti-gay, they are silenced, re-educated or killed. And as far as saying Conservative people are intolerant of “Mexicans” that sounds really shady. Any person who legally enters the country and can legally stay and work is fine.
Awww, the right wing, anti-American, anti-LGBTQ, Rac-ist troll doesn’t see anti-Americanism or Rac-ism in the Republican party.
Just like drug addict Rush Limbaugh used to pretend he was opposed to drugs.
Sam, I said “a certain group”. If I meant “conservatives”, I would have said “conservatives”.
Nice try blaming the left again though… As predictable as it is inaccurate.
Awfully suspicious that you’d choose to get defensive about this.
Bosch: Most commenters here claim “the right” loves Putin & hates “immigrants”. I apologize then, which group were you talking about?
Russian media is openly wondering on air when Tucker C will be arrested for being a Russian spy and he’s not the only one they show clips of on state TV.
Ever since George W. Bush sat in a Florida classroom, unsure whether he should break off the visit, as the Twin Towers burned and collapsed in NYC, the Republicans have been trying to shift blame and misdirect. “Mission Accomplished” indeed. lol
The way Tr*mp sold out NATO, Putin would be on the Rhine by now if the Tangerine Palpatine had succeeded in his attempted coup. May he disappear from the scene, and also some “rich” kid saying my father is stronger than yours isn’t news. Sad!
Ha ha ha! Eric Trump is embarrassed and tries to cover it up by applauding his daddy’s losings!
So sad to see Eric Trump or his even-bigger-loser brother Jr. try to add value to their relationship with their narcissistic father by spouting such dribble to support his legacy.
Poor Eric. I actually feel somehow sorry for him. Knowing you the dumbest of the family, and goodness the rest are dumb. Not being loved by a narsicist dad?
NO, I feeling nothing! They all, the Trumps, cut from the same evil cloth.
i never thought anyone could be physically uglier than Trump but the son is even worse…he looks like he would neigh when he opens his big toothed mouth.
pretty sure TFG told putin to do whatver the hell you want, just wait til im out of office.
Many people have asked why Putin didn’t invade when his “boyfriend” Trump was in the White House. I think Max Brooks correctly answered that question tonight on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” That is, Putin didn’t need to, because Trump was already doing the work of weakening NATO for him, which was one of his objectives. I also believe he expected Trump to be elected again, and when he wasn’t elected he misjudged Biden as being weak (and Republicans are reinforcing that perception even now). Biden is walking a fine line, and I think he’s doing it perfectly in his response to the invasion. And I think the irony for Putin is that his invasion has STRENGTHENED NATO.
