Eric Trump is still angry about liberal comedian Chelsea Handler’s attack over his announcement that he and his wife Lara are expecting their first child in September.
Handler tweeted, “Just what we need. Another person with those [sic] jeans. Let’s hope for a girl,” shortly after the announcement.
The president’s son mentioned the tweet during a Tuesday appearance on the “Dr. Oz Show” in which he said such online postings are indicative of the sad state of a divided society.
“It’s just sad, right?” Eric Trump told Dr. Oz. “Sad that society’s gotten to the point where something as beautiful as this and life and babies and innocence … really gets taken down like that because of politics. I mean, that’s how divided we’ve become as a nation … It’s really, really sad. This is a very special thing and it should be celebrated. When someone spells genes incorrectly, you kind of have to turn your head and ignore it a little.”
