Eric Trump Just Accused Hunter Biden of Cashing in on His Last Name, Yes, Really!
About a week ago, we spent considerable time trying to think of whether any of the Trumps ever held a real job and the most we could come up with was that Trump was an NBC paid employee for many years as “The Guy” at The Apprentice. Other than that, we were unable to come up with any real job outside being a Trump. Trump as the president doesn’t count because he outsources the work and privatizes the perks, kinda like Ivanka. Suffice it to say that the kids, the Trump kids, that is, have done quite well based on their name, in terms of never having held a job.
Now Eric Trump wants you to know that Hunter Biden traded on his last name and made money on it, even though Hunter did an interview in which he admitted he likely would not have gotten most of the positions he received had his last name not been Biden. Eric finds it repulsive that Hunter Biden would make money off his father’s name.

This is really “rich stuff” considering the fact that Eric made more money for himself and the Trump organization from his charity alone, in a few years than that which they can trace to Hunter Biden. According to Forbes Magazine:
The real star of the day is Eric Trump, the president’s second son and now the co-head of the Trump Organization, who has hosted this event for ten years on behalf of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. He’s done a ton of good: To date, he’s directed more than $11 million there, the vast majority of it via this annual golf event. He has also helped raise another $5 million through events with other organizations….
….Eric Trump, in speaking with Forbes, maintains that “our expenses on a tournament that made us somewhere in the $2 million range every year was somewhere around 100 grand,” even though his foundation’s tax records show costs soaring to $322,000. When asked for an itemized list of expenses, the Eric Trump Foundation declined to respond.
Eric says that Hunter was paid $83,000 per month (a figure that weirdly keeps rising, has anyone else noticed?), and yet that figure still can’t come close to the amount of money taken annually from the charity in which all the money was to go to “kids with cancer.”
All of which probably explains why Hunter Biden is legally allowed to run a charity in New York while the Trumps are not.
