There's having no self-awareness, and then there's Eric Trump, who took the concept to a whole new level in an interview with Fox News this week.

Speaking to Sean Hannity, he went on a Trump Sr level rant about media, saying that "facts don't matter". Yes, the same facts that the president's press secretary said there are "alternative" versions of.

He talked about the media "attacking" his father, and said:

They’re willing to lie. They’re willing to take anybody down for any reason that fits their narrative.

They do it to me, they do it to Don, they do it to Ivanka, they do it to my father every single day.

Facts do not matter to these people. If it helps their little political agenda, if it helps them get something they want, if it appeases their bosses and the higher-ups in the mainstream media, they’ll lie, they’ll deceive, they’ll fraud.

Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked journalists for doing their job and holding the administration to account.

Meanwhile the president and his associates have been the subject of more than a dozen investigations - Russia probe notwithstanding.

As you can imagine, the internet collectively eye-rolled.

Last month The Washington Post calculated that since he took office, Trump had made 13,435 false or misleading claims.

Eric must have missed that.
