Eric Trump offered a legally flawed defense of his family's business from a New York state investigation, and the former president's son was laughed off social media.
The twice-impeached one-term president's second-eldest son claimed the investigation by attorney general Letitia James "violates the Constitution," echoing claims from a lawsuit filed by his father that complains the probe deprived him of “life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”
“This is what you’d expect from Russia,” Eric Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity. “This is what you’d expect from Venezuela. This is third-rate stuff.”
Other social media users were thoroughly unimpressed by his claims.
Eric Trump has one non- functioning brain cell. Why is he still talking? Does anyone care?— if i had a star for every time\u2026\u2b50\ufe0f Sandy (@if i had a star for every time\u2026\u2b50\ufe0f Sandy) 1641900021

@EricTrump @SenRubioPress Eric Trump referencing the Constitution is like lil\u2019 Marco Rubio referencing the Bible. Neither one of them has ever read it.— WontBackDown (@WontBackDown) 1641898653
Between this and Eric Trump's rant on Fox tonight, I'm actually starting to think there might be some real pressure being applied in NY and GA.https://twitter.com/RonFilipkowski/status/1480735967208259586\u00a0\u2026— Bradley P. Moss (@Bradley P. Moss) 1641871014
