Social Media Reacts After Trophy Hunter Eric Trump Suddenly Starts Boasting About Saving And Rescuing Animals

Oh boy. The hypocrisy is strong with this one.

There is a whole entire slew of sickening, disgusting things that I could take hours upon hours to point out about Donald Trump’s middle child, Eric Trump. He’s a grifter of the utmost proportions. While he’s not enjoying an official White House position like his sister is, he certainly loves to soak up that nepotism at every chance he gets. And he’s constantly backing up his father’s cruel and inhumane policies all over Fox News.

But I think we can all agree that perhaps the most stomach-churning thing about Donald Trump’s middle son is his hunting habits.

Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of hunting in general — just a personal preference. However, the hunting sport that Eric Trump and his big brother Don Jr. partake in regularly is a far cry from your average deer hunting. These men go out of their way to use their clout and their connection to their daddy to hunt and kill big, often endangered animals for no other reason than the “fun” of it.

That’s precisely why, when Eric took to his Instagram account recently to brag about saving a shelter dog, people weren’t all that impressed with his hypocrisy.

“This is proof of what unconditional love can do — the video is Ben today, part of our family, feeling loved and so happy every single day,” the Trump spawn captioned a video of his child and their family pooch. “The pictures were Ben before he came to us. He was abused, forgotten and thrown in a shelter to die. We could have never guessed the love and joy Ben would bring to our family those 4 short years ago, and we wouldn’t trade him for the world.”

He wrapped the Instagram post up with the hashtags, “AdoptDontShop” and RescueDogsRock.”

I think it’s great that Eric adopted a shelter dog. I think it’s great that he’s encouraging others to do the same. But hypocrisy ain’t a good color on you, Eric. And the rest of social media seems to agree with me:

Guys, please adopt, don’t shop. And while you’re at it, don’t kill endangered animals to make up for your inability to satisfy your wife.
