He said: “I can tell you more people have come up to me on the street in the last week and given me hugs saying ‘we miss him so much.’
“Sometimes, Sean, with literal tears in their eyes.”
Trump offered literally no evidence for this outpouring of affection for his father which seems suspect at best.
Firstly, why is Eric accepting random hugs from strangers, especially during a pandemic? Also, do Trump supporters really miss the guy so much that they want to hug Eric? Where were these people? Were they crying before or after they saw Eric? All very important details that he neglected to tell us.
As you can imagine, folks weren’t convinced by Eric’s bold claim and had other ideas as to what was actually going on.
Needless to say, Eric might have to come up with better stories about his random interactions before people start believing him.
