On Wednesday night’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah took a critical look at Donald Trump’s “third favorite son,” Eric, who recently appeared on Sean Hannity’s show to proclaim that Democratic legislators who oppose Trump are “not even people.”
Wow. The same guy who got so upset when Hillary called his dad’s supporters “deplorables” is now saying that Democrats aren’t even human beings? Really?…I don’t know about you, but whenever I see this sort of thing, it makes me wonder: How did this person get this way?
Noah then highlighted a Forbes report that discovered that the Eric Trump Foundation, which raises money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, has actually been funnelling hundreds of thousands of dollars from charity golf events directly to the Trump Organization.
The younger Trump did, in fact, raise millions of dollars for the research hospital—but everything changed when, according to Forbes, Donald “demanded” the foundation be charged for using their facilities.
“Even though this is for kids with cancer, we want you guys to pay. That is heartless and also the theme for Trump’s new healthcare plan,” Noah joked, noting that Trump started charging Eric’s charity a whopping 500% more than a venue would typically charge.
“Eric went from using his incredible privilege to help the less fortunate to being the guy skimming from charities,” Noah said:
This is the curse of being one of Donald Trump’s children: You can try and be good, but he’ll be like, “No, no, no, don’t do that. You’re a Trump.” And now Eric might as well be one of Trump’s buildings. He’s not as popular as he once was and if you look deep, you’ll find that he’s also empty on the inside.
