Eric Trump Says Father "Tunes Out" Criticism So He Doesn't Commit Suicide "Out Of Depression"

Submitted by: fancylad 1 month ago in News & Politics


Remember how Hillary used to warn us that Trump was "temperamentally unfit" fit to be president? She wasn't lying. His own son confirms it. In a 15-minute interview Tuesday on The Joe Pags Show, Trump's son said "politics is the nastiest business I've ever seen" because his daddy is constantly met with criticism.

"I mean, just the evilness and the hatred in that world is unlike anything I could have fathomed before. And no matter what he does, they're going to hit him on it and they're going to go after him, and it's the swamp and it's a corrupt system." 

He'd know.

"It’s the media, the mainstream media, who does not want him to succeed. It's government who does not want him to succeed… No matter what he does, he's going to get hit, and listen, I think you have to tune it out. You obviously have to be tuned into it, but at the same time you have to take it all with a grain of salt.”

So what is it? Tune out or tune in?

"If they weren't talking about you, you wouldn't be doing something right, and it's important to keep it in context, otherwise quite frankly you'd probably end up killing yourself out of depression," Eric Trump said.

Whether Trump has a tendency to be suicidal or not, one thing is clear -- don't let Eric near the press anymore -- it's bad for business.

He's too narcissistic to commit suicide so it's all just wishful thinking...besides, they do suicide prevention in prison.

I just figured out who could win the 2020 election for the Democrats. Going against Trump you need someone who is popular not political. It's going to sound crazy but Leonardo DiCaprio would coast to victory. He is a champion of the underdog and our planet with all his causes and charities. Say what you want about him but he is a damn good actor and could play the part. The only thing that would need to change is First Lady would be First Girlfriend or maybe just First Model, and the later isn't even a change from the present FLOTUS. My second option would be to put George Clooney as the Presidential candidate and Leo as Vice President, so he could continue to focus on the good.

markust123 His girlfriend could still be First Lady.  The position does not have to go to the wife of the president.

1. LOL

2. Ya, right wing media was so fair to Obama.

3. If we ever have another president that says and does such stupid shit, I hope the media reports on it wether they have a D or an R next to their name.

trimble Eric said it, not me. Also, I'm cutting it down to one Trump post a day -- there's been a lot of damp nappies over too much Trump, so this is the one I went with. Trump contemplating suicide is poignant in a way.

fancylad lol, "damp nappies".  I love it!  Good plan though.  I don't think we need so much Trump nonsense, for or against.  He seems to creep into too many unrelated posts as it is.  

Side question, fancy, I just changed my little profile pic to my dog...  how long does it take before it will start showing up in my posts by my name?

I think this would be far more desirable than impeachment. It would be cathartic, like the passing of Joffrey Baratheon.

Whose fault was it to select such grossly under-qualified people for a lot of his cabinet positions? Whose fault is it for all his lies? Whose fault is it for all his childish and inapropriate tweets? Whose fault is it that his bigotry and xenophobia is so prevalent he is praised by racists and nazis? Etc. Etc. Yeah, it's the media that is to blame????

cjeffblanchr Did you just mitigate Trump's lies by saying "they're all guilty of it"? Holy shit man. People lie. Politicians lie because managing perceptions is part of the job. Trump lies about meaningless bullshit on a constant basis.

If I asked you to list Hillary lies you could probably give a me a decent list spanning the last decade. If I you asked me for a Trump list I could give you one twice as long and it would only be the last month.

holygod They're all corrupt.  They're all liars.  I'm not going to label any of them as a worse than the others.  A liar is a liar, and "managing perceptions" as a part of the job is no excuse for any of them.

cjeffblanchr "a liar is a liar" 
I agree with that.

"I'm not going to label any of them as a worse than the others"
Really? REALLY? 

By that rationale stealing a snickers bar from the grocery store is the exact same as stealing the Mona Lisa from the Louvre.

holygod I didn't say they were the same.  Trump may well be a bigger liar.  My point is not to defend him.  My point is that they're all deceitful slugs and it really doesn't matter which one of them is the worst.

cjeffblanchr That is EXACTLY what you did:

"I'm not going to label any of them as a worse than the others"

That means, point blank, they are all the same in your eyes. None worse. None better.

holygod Um no... that's what you implied.  Someone who tells a small lie is a liar and someone who tells a large lie is a liar.  They not on the same level, but the same word describes them.

Seriously though, are you having a bad day? Because it seems like you're getting your knickers all twisted up over wordplay.

cjeffblanchr, "As for his lies... well, that's politics.  They're all guilty of it."

Having to lie at times is politics. It's a scummy world. And it is sometimes a world of life and death. But show me one other politician who lies at the level and consistency that our president does. This isn't political lying it's blatant lying and a lot of times about small stupid things that are easily checked. He has a real problem with lying. It is a huge character flaw.

The media was reporting things HE was saying and doing. He was viewership gold. If anything they let him off too easy. There were at least five things he said/did or said or done in the past that were candidate enders. But they let him get away with it because they wanted to keep those ratings. He should be thanking them. They got him elected. You could see the, what have we done, look on almost all of the reports faces election night.

People like me could handle it, i absolutely love it when people criticise and hate on me, it's like people willingly give me their energy to stand above them.. weird, but true.  They expend energy for me to take, and i can use it effectively to become better.  Always baffles me why people do that with their energy, i'd never give it away so foolishly.  Ironically i can become better and more efficient when they are kindly too (even faster), and i freely give  that in return, because i know it'll make them stronger too.

we need better politicians.  leaders.  not politicians.

monkwarrior So are you just trolling with some of your conspiracy stuff to get people to hate on you? Legitimate question.

markust123 no, but a lot of people hate questions or trains of thoughts that they view as a risk their world-views.  They may view it as trolling, but it's no concern of mine if someone can't handle or fend off the reasoning that puts their world view at risk, especially when facts come into play, like the facts surrounding explosive evidence on 9/11.

markust123 I don't really know what you expect me to say, you came out with the assumption that i was 'trolling' with my 'conspiracy stuff'.  I basically said i understand people who view things against their world view to be 'conspracy stuff' and 'trolling', and provided an example of the facts regarding the explosive evidence discovered at the 9/11 crime scene.  Perhaps if i clarify that some people who believe the 'official story' of 9/11 to be fact, consider the evidence has been raised against it to be 'conspiracy stuff', and those who bring it up as i do (against their world view) are considered by them to be 'trolling', that it might help you understand better?

markust123 Well I have never ever said the earth is flat, and i've stated numerous times i question the curvature of the earth calculations.  It's not trying to get a reaction by voicing my opinion that i'll reserve my final decision on the earth's shape for when i can see it with my own eyes.  And that's not because i can't understand anyone's point of view on its shape, but that i haven't been able to test it myself due to the cost of it and time commitment, and you know what they say about just blindly believing what others say.

Draculya i can see how you would mean it, but i was coming from a view of serving others..  how it's better to serve each other than ourselves.  Praise and blame is so much less than harmony and equality, because pride grows where love could.

Draculya How is it sociopathy to not be offended or upset by what others say, do, and think?  I think the word you're looking for is "adult".

I truly believe that in TRUMPS mind;

1) He is best president ever (maybe second to lincoln as he claims), 
2) he has been treated worse than any president ever 
3) people are always trying to be mean to him.

Reality has no hold on him whatsoever.

daegog 2 and 3 could be true.  Sure it is because they believe he is the inverse of number 1, but feeling he is being persecuted is completely reasonable. (I wanted to go with persecution complex, but that implies that the feeling is irrational.)
