The feud between the Trump family and CNN isn’t exactly new.
When President Trump isn’t tweeting #fakenews at CNN, he’s reposting shady GIFs and degrading images:
So when President Trump pledged $ 1 million to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund, I guess it was inevitable that Eric Trump, now executive VP of The Trump Organization, would take to social media to go after the network.
Eric Trump taunted CNN on Twitter:
The news outlet fired back at Eric Trump, with receipts and time stamps of how they had already reported Trump’s pledge.
And his tweet backfired… hard:
No one knows the Trump family’s real reason was for tweeting CNN, but we know that Hurricane Harvey is nothing to joke about.

Hairstyles can be Iconic, from Liza Minnelli’s signature Vidal Sassoon cut to the 90s mullet and everything in between. So when someone, especially a person in politics, gets a fresh new cut, they must be prepared to receive criticism. That’s exactly where Eric Trump now finds himself.
Here’s what Eric Trump looked like before his new cut.
Here’s the new haircut.
People keep thinking his new haircut looks like Richard Spencer.
Even Richard Spencer tweeted about it.
Where others are a bit more haunting in their comparison to fascism.
An unofficial but common name for this haircut has been a “Hitler youth cut.” As of the last couple of years the alt right have reinstated the haircut as part of their fascist beliefs. Whether Eric Trump intended on making a political statement or not, it definitely appears he has.
Its been pretty easy for me to stay politically neutral this election cycle because I’m voting for the Giant Meteor to come in and do what’s right. Some folks think I have a pretty negative outlook on things, but I digress.
You see, when Donald Trump was asked what would happen if his daughter. Ivanka Trump, found herself being sexually harassed in the workplace, his response was:
“I would like to think she would find another career or find another company if that was the case.”
You heard right, folks! When it comes to sexual harassment, if the lewd comments and uninvited advances make the victim uncomfortable, then they should be the ones to leave.
Surely though, his son, who is much younger and more connected to the favorite Trump daughter, would take a different stance on the topic.
When a CBS host asked Eric if he thought that bringing the harassment to the attention of human resources was a better answer, he and his haircut answered
And yet somehow, Eric manage to make things worse
“Ivanka is a strong, powerful woman. She wouldn’t allow herself to be objected to it. And by the way, you should certainly take it up with human resources. And I think she definitely would, as a strong person. At the same time, I don’t think she would allow herself to be subjected to it.”
It’s like the old saying goes; From a bad crow, a bad egg. I’m sure someone in the campaign is going to ‘clarify’ this faux pas in the next day or two since the premise behind being sexually harassed has someone saying or doing something without permission to begin with. Blaming the victim is obviously not the answer to sexual harassment in the workplace. Not by a long shot.
People tweeted their disgust the blatant victim-blaming the Trumps have pushed
To say “She’s too strong to be sexually harassed” is like saying someone is too fast for bullets. Victim blaming. Disgusting, @EricTrump
