Eric Trump Just Got Trolled After Trying To Attack WaPo Journalist: ‘That’s Why They Call You The Dumb One’
Eric Trump, an executive VP at the Trump Organization, went after the Washington Post on Friday after Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Fahrenthold sent one of Trump’s employees a polite letter.
Guess Eric was having a bad day. He tweeted saying:
“These are the tactics used by the @WashingtonPost. @JeffBezos – you should be very proud… 🙄”

People on Twitter were just as confused as we are as to why Eric Trump would lash out at a reporter for doing his job. Guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Here’s how people decided to troll Trump for his deranged attack:
Ummm, Eric. This is called journalism.
Speaking to sources on background and anonymously sourcing documents to expose corruption is par for the course.
I think you should learn how to use this other neat thing called Google before you tweet. https://t.co/FMICgPGs5v

In one corner: An army of brilliant Pulitzer Prize decorated professionals, out here fighting corruption like a freakin’ justice league.
Then, there’s Eric.
Eric Trump views corruption as his birthright. Don’t be like Eric.

Trumps never fade away. Let’s hope that doesn’t mean they don’t die as well. Their collective stupidity will haunt our country for years. I hope they all move to country of choice: Russia. Second. Saudi Arabia. Puerto Rico build a wall. Make trumps pay for it out of emoluments

Anyway, if anyone wants to leave a tip about the Trump Org for the Washington Post, Eric was kind enough to broadcast to the entire internet exactly how to do so.

So you're scared of journalists doing journalism?
Or….are you scared that a staffer would send potentially incriminating documents to a journalist?
