Eric Trump Told Fox News That “Biden Doesn’t Have The Aptitude To Debate My Father,” And He Has “Stuttered Through Sentences”

Mocking Biden's stutter is not a winning strategy, Champ.

It’s widely known that former Vice President Biden has struggled with a stutter throughout his life, and earlier this year, the presumptive Democratic nominee reflected on that. Late last year, Sarah Huckabee Sanders mocked Biden over his stutter disorder, which she quickly regretted and deleted her tweet after Biden pointed out on Twitter that she lacks empathy. Sanders was absolutely shamed on the Internet and on the news — after all, Biden has been open about his disorder.

So, of course, Donald Trump’s son just had to go there, too. And if Eric Trump innocently noted during his Fox News interview that Biden stutters, then that only reveals how misinformed the president’s idiot son is.

But, Eric had to know:


At any rate, during his interview, Eric reacted to New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman urging Biden not to participate in the three upcoming debates with Donald Trump unless the president agrees to “two conditions.”

Friedman said the “conditions” should be that the president must release his tax returns from 2016 to 2018 and that both campaigns should agree on having a “real-time fact-checking team” hired by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates.

The interview occurred before the Supreme Court ruling that sent Donald into a hot rage.

“Honestly, guys, I’m not trying to be fresh here, but if you want to know the truth, Biden is actually in a really tough spot because he does not have the aptitude to debate my father,” Eric insisted. “At the same time, if he backs out of the debate, everybody in the country will know that he did not have the aptitude to debate my father.”

“No one has seen Biden. The guy has been in his basement for the last four months,” Eric falsely said. “He hasn’t been out. The few times he has been out, he’s stuttered through sentences, he hasn’t been able to get through a cohesive thought, and they’re literally trying to convince the guy not to get on the stage where you’d have 40-50 million people each time see somebody who could potentially become the commander in chief of the free world.”


Biden has given several interviews and recorded messages from what appears to be his home due to the pandemic. Eric claiming that Biden isn’t fit — but that his father is — shows that the skills of projection in the Trump family are hereditary or contagious. Trump is lashing out on Twitter amid the pandemic daily, and as far as fitness goes, President Rampy is probably still trying to master how to use an umbrella. Eric saying Biden “hasn’t been out,” then in the same breath saying, “the few times he’s been out,” is so Trumpian.

And, guys, Biden doesn’t need to do very much at this point since Trump is busy digging his own grave. He’s just laying back and chilling while Trump self-destructs. Why should Biden interrupt the president as he sinks his own campaign?

But the cruelty of Eric to bring up Biden’s stuttering doesn’t exactly help his father’s chances of winning the election. There is no bottom with the Trumps. November is payback time.
