Eric Trump slams liberal commentator over pocketing charity money accusations


Liberal political commentator Keith Olbermann took to Twitter to voice disparaging remarks against President Donald Trump’s second son, Eric. His comments Saturday targeted accusations that Eric Trump pocketed charitable donations from his own charitable organization.

Of course, Trump did not let the comments fester for long without rebuttal.

The feud initially sparked when Olbermann replied to a tweet from White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, after she herself targeted Hillary Clinton in a tweet alongside GOP activist Charlie Kirk, who pointed out the mainstream media hypocrisy between Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower last summer and their coverage of alleged “pay for play” with the Clinton Foundation.

That’s when Olbermann stepped in to retaliate against Conway by citing her tweet and writing in reply: “I understand your confusion. You’re thinking of @EricTrump self-dealing charity cash to himself from golf tournaments.”

Twenty minutes later, Eric Trump jumped in to defend himself with a responding tweet: “You mean the $16.3 million dollars I have raised for dying children (before the age of 33) at a 12% expense ratio. What good have you done?”


As previously reported last month, the Eric Trump Foundation is facing allegations that officials have been pocketing donations and reverting the funds to the Trump Organization.
