Eric Trump, the 34-year old third child of President Donald Trump, posted a tweet Thursday night that left a good deal of room for interpretation – and for mockery.
I truly hate disloyal people
— Eric Trump (@EricTrump) August 17, 2018
The tweet could have been referring to Omarosa Manigault Newman, who is on a bombshell book tour. Earlier Thursday she released audio recordings of herself talking with Lara Trump, Eric’s wife of four years. In those recordings Lara can be heard talking with Omarosa, and offering her a $15,000 per month job with the Trump re-election campaign, to stay “positive.” In other words, hush money. Omarosa refused.
But on social media, many shared their own interpretations, or just took the opportunity to mock him:
You must not fancy your family much.

Eric Trump is mad that his wife got caught using small donors like a hush money ATM to silence Omarosa. In Eric's world, the only crime is disloyalty, but he just can't see how disloyal misusing donations from supporters is. A real moron's paradox.

Didn’t your dad cheat on his third wife with a porn star?

That is an amazing statement Eric since I have never seen anyone as disloyal as your father yet he demands loyalty from others when it is not warranted such as Jim Comey. https://t.co/rpgJrdtXAB

Like people who cheat on their first wife with their second wife and then cheat on their second wife with their third wife and then cheat on their third wife with Playboy models and porn stars? Yeah, those people are the worst…
