Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 22, 2018

Eric Trump, President Donald Trump's second eldest son, had a busy night on Saturday. In addition to filling in for his father at a high-dollar fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago, the president's private club in Palm Beach, Fla., the 34-year old also went on Fox News Channel's "Judge Jeanine," to defend the president's accomplishments. Between accolades for his father, the younger Trump stumbled over a basic rule of politics: Never boast about how you will benefit politically from the misfortune of your constituents. "I think it's a good thing for us," Eric Trump said of the government shutdown that was triggered at midnight on Friday by the failure of congressional negotiators and the Trump White House to reach a deal to fund the government.

The Dems are bad men and women. It is good what Trump did today. It's good that Trump shut down the gubmint.

It's a good thing. It was really good. It's a real good thing for us!

It's a good thing!
