Eric Trump took to Twitter today to post photos of his surprisingly cute son, Luke. He could have just left it at that, but instead, the same guy who stole money from cancer patients for golf used the opportunity to brag that he was teaching his son about giving.
Luke is so excited to help contribute to #ToysForTots! They are an incredible organization and everyone at @Trump is honored to help support this amazing cause. As for the little guy, it is never too early to teach philanthropy! @ToysForTots_USA @Trump 🚂🚂 pic.twitter.com/q5BtoVs0LN— Eric Trump (@EricTrump) December 10, 2018
If you’ve forgotten, as Eric clearly has, the Eric Trump Foundation was exposed in 2017 for funneling money from the charity organization into “family businesses.” Forbes reported that $1.2 million in funds that were supposed to go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital instead went to not just a single Trump golf course, but a single one-day golf event. This event was supposedly meant to raise more money for charity, but experts are stumped on how one single day of charity golfing could use up that much cash.
“Golf charity experts say the listed expenses defy any reasonable cost justification for a one-day golf tournament,” the Forbes article reads.
The Eric Trump Foundation appears to still be under federal investigation. And Eric has the nerve to tweet about “philanthropy.”
As is to be expected, Twitter pounced.
Make sure the tots get their toys. You know....unlike those kids with cancer and their money. https://t.co/VlFPWZmznz— David Henry (@WorstThtCldHppn) December 10, 2018
Is that why you stole money from kids with cancer? https://t.co/jAuNZYY7r7— Kawashima Keisuke (@masumurakeisuke) December 10, 2018
With all that stolen money, your son is going to miss you while you're in prison! Jackass! https://t.co/6KqlYQ0mMj— Eddie Polk (@egator55) December 10, 2018
Who taught you to steal donated money to kids with cancer? https://t.co/2AF0yMKj3M— TheZenofWriting (@TheZenofWriting) December 10, 2018
that's sweet, at what age do you start teaching them how to steal from charities? https://t.co/lLirC8twrK— Donna Silva (@meisey1933) December 11, 2018
Yeah your family does enjoy charity work alright... how's that Trump Foundation working for you? https://t.co/FRAjKZMMxI— Les P (@LesP63333817) December 10, 2018
"Never too early to teach philanthropy!".. 🙄 How about just don't teach the little guy to steal from charity. Like you did. https://t.co/gPJYuFIg3t— Brenda Of The North (@BrendaJeanCDN) December 10, 2018
Great job, Eric. When you are done, gather up a bunch and go to the border to the migrant camps and help those children...who have nothing. I'm sure Donald would love to help. https://t.co/5NZYKwpdwq— Gil Noble (@GilGnoble) December 10, 2018
Teach him about kick backs from the charitees.— suit case (@suit_case) December 10, 2018
True - but can he launder the money yet?— Eric Trump’s Gums (@EricsGums) December 10, 2018
Have you stolen money from them as well?— MrsAjax (@MrsAjax3) December 10, 2018
I really don't care! Do you?— Tommy L Starling (@Starchild19562) December 11, 2018
If he doesn't try stealing the toys intended for charity, you should demand a DNA test because he would not be a trump.— Blue (@Voter_2018) December 10, 2018
You may get want to let him know that a foundation is not a family slush fund. Start him early before you go to jail.— Diver (@savemyoceans2) December 10, 2018
You spelled "robbery" wrong.— Karen G (@headbangerwoman) December 11, 2018
When your foundation is being investigated for fraud, you may want to reconsider dragging your toddler son into the twittersphere.— Charlie D (@charliedimster) December 10, 2018
Can we get this poor kid a better family for Christmas? At least his dad isn’t teaching him to shoot endangered animals and pose with their dead bodies like a creepy coward yet. Oh, and at least little Luke isn’t sitting in a prison camp after being separated from his parents at the border after his entire family had to flee their home after U.S. interference and horrible drug policies ruined their country. But sure, Eric. Philanthropy.
