Eric Trump appeared on Sean Hannity’s show Tuesday night and lashed out at those who oppose his father’s administration, saying they’re “not even people.”
Hannity introduced the segment by complaining about the mainstream media floating “baseless Russian conspiracy theories” and what he described as Democrats on the Hill searching for “any evidence of collusion,” namely the investigation into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign’s ties to the Kremlin.
“I’ve never seen hatred like this,” Eric Trump said. “I mean, to me, they’re not even people.”
Eric Trump also called the recently elected Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez a “total whackjob,” then decried the increase in name-calling.
“We deserve so much better than this as a country,” Eric Trump added.
People on Twitter were quick to respond to his claims:
Hey Eric Trump – have you ever read any of your father’s tweets? You’ll learn a lot about hatred, intolerance and anger there. https://twitter.com/yashar/status/872285994145292288 …
