Fresh off the heels of his super embarrassing appearance on Fox News where he nearly broke down sobbing, Eric Trump sat down this week with right wing troll Candace Owens for a softball interview about nothing substantive, interesting, or informative.
At one point, Owens asked Eric who he would like to have dinner with, dead or alive, to which the 38-year-old answered, “How about Jesus?”
“Jesus! That’s a good answer!” Owens replied, impressed.
“That’d be a good one, right?” Eric said.
The eye-rolling moment felt very scripted and was obviously inspired by George W. Bush’s “Jesus moment” during the 2000 presidential campaign, when he was asked during the Republican primary debate in Iowa who his favorite political philosopher was and replied, “Uh, Christ. Because he changed my heart.”
When asked by Owens what he and the son of God might discuss during their dinner date, Eric said that he would like to talk to him about what a terrible president Joe Biden is.
He then rattled off all the questions he’d ask Mr. Christ, “Did you envision this happening to the United States of America? Did you ever envision a person as incompetent as Joe Biden running the United States of America? How in the world did this happen?”

Now, we’ve never met Jesus before, but based on what we know about the guy, we’re guessing he probably isn’t too interested in talking politics with a grifter who was busted for stealing money from a children’s cancer charity.
Eric continued, “Honestly, I might ask him if this is actually a ploy to show people the difference between Republican leadership and Democratic leadership. Sometimes I think about that.”

Queerty reached out to Jesus for comment and his camp told us that he’s unable to meet Eric for dinner because he’s busy that night, and every other night.
Now, here’s how people are responding to Eric’s idiotic “Jesus moment”…
Eric Trump- Jesus Christ has received your dinner invitation. He replied, and I quote, “go to hell”.

Says Jesus: Eric my boy, let us first talk about stealing from children with cancer.

Jesus: so you stole money from children with cancer? Eric: I plead the fifth.

I think when he does meet with Jesus, Jesus will be doing all of the talking.

….he’d actually turnaround and walk out once he saw that Jesus had brown skin.

The Trump family aren’t even members of a church and yet they keep trying all of this B.S.
It must be exhausting for them, to be going broke and trying any pathetic thing they can to keep their name in the news and the grift going.
More like a sleepover with the Devil!! and guess who is on top not Eric, whinny bitch go spend your dads stollen money, the Russians loaned him, and pay your Bills
Jesus wouldn’t have anything to do with anyone like Trump. I know he can be forgiving but come on even he has his limits.
I whole-heartedly agree with the tweeter who tweeted that she’d like to see him have dinner with Jesus, at Jesus’ place right now, but Eric doesn’t seem to remember how Jesus reacted with the money changers and grifters in the temple, and what He said about them. I’m sure Eric (and all his family) are going to meet Jesus someday, and President Biden will be the very least of his worries.
whats the guys name that his wife is leaving him for because the trumps are broke-ass losers?
What is Eric talking about? The Trumps are atheists!
Well, unless you count money as a god.
As the tweets point out, Jesus wouldn’t be pleased with Eric cheating a kids’ cancer charity.
But if they did have dinner and Eric put ketchup on his steak, what would Jesus do? LIGHTNING BOLT!
I doubt that Jesus would have dinner with the spawn of Satan’s minion (Donald Trump).
First off, like most “Christians,” Eric’s Klan loving ass wouldn’t know Jesus if he met him.
Go right ahead Eric! There’s only one way to have din din with Jesus! See ya on the other side of dirt!
