Eric Trump: The coronavirus will ‘magically’ disappear after the November election

Eric Trump oversees construction on the new Trump Tower in Punta del Este

I’m only saying this to inform: Joe Biden currently has a national lead in polling, and he’s far ahead of Trump in many “battleground states.” I’m not saying that to encourage complacency or anything – we all still need to vote. Now is the time to register to vote or to double-check that you’re still registered. Some states will offer mail-in ballots, some won’t. Please stay aware of what your state is doing. And also be aware of how the Trumpers and MAGAs are actively spreading some of the dumbest conspiracies out there. These conspiracies are designed to confuse and to keep you from voting. Speaking of, Eric Trump was on Drunk Jeanine Pirro’s Friday night show, and Eric decided to share a very special coronavirus-election conspiracy.

Eric Trump claimed Saturday that the coronavirus will “magically” vanish after the November election and allow the country to fully reopen — an assertion that has no basis in science and is contradicted by health experts worldwide. In an interview with Fox News’s Jeanine Pirro, Trump suggested the president’s critics were using the pandemic to undermine his father’s rallies, calling it a “cognizant strategy” that would cease once it was no longer politically expedient.

“You watch, they’ll milk it every single day between now and November 3,” the younger Trump said. “And guess what, after November 3, coronavirus will magically, all of a sudden, go away and disappear and everybody will be able to reopen.”

He also attacked former vice president Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, and boasted about crowd sizes at President Trump’s political events.

“They think they’re taking away Donald Trump’s greatest tool, which is being able to go into an arena and fill it with 50,000 people every single time,” he said.

The Biden campaign pushed back against Trump’s comments, calling them “unbelievably reckless.”

“We’re in the middle of the biggest public health emergency in a century, with almost 90,000 Americans dead, 1.5 million infected, and 36 million workers newly jobless,” said Biden communications director Kate Bedingfield in a statement. “So for Eric Trump to claim that the coronavirus is a political hoax that will ‘magically’ disappear is absolutely stunning and unbelievably reckless.” She also accused the Trump administration of being “desperate to do whatever they can to throw up a smokescreen to try to conceal his historic mismanagement of this crisis.”

I’m still laughing about this and I saw the video days ago. Eric is literally sitting at home, doing a video-linkup interview about how no one should stay at home because the virus isn’t real except the virus is real and it was made by Democrats, and that’s why the virus will magically disappear after Election Day. Democrats are only telling people to stay home because they know Trump’s Nazi rallies are so bigly. Why not just go to Pirro’s home in person and do the interview then? I don’t get it. And how is the virus going to magically disappear in November?

    After 2016, I trust polls as much as I’d trust medical advice from Eric Trump.

  2. Valiantly Varnished says:

    No but I pray that he and his family will “magically disappear” after November.

    • ATLMathMom says:

      Word.

    • lucy2 says:

      Poof! Into a jail cell with them all!

      If he doesn’t believe it’s real, or thinks it’s over-hyped, he’s welcome to go volunteer in any ER around the country.

    • Nic919 says:

      Is it wrong that I want a Romanov style ending?

      • line says:

        No! because in the case of Romanovs it was not only Tsar Nicholas 2 and Tsarina Alexandra who were brutally murdered but also their five innocent children who were murdered and two of Tsar Irina and Natasha Pavlovna Paley’s young nieces were violent by the Bolsheviks.The most horrible punishment for the Trumps is not so much the prison, but to lose all their fortunes and influences.

      • Jerusha says:

        I was thinking Nicolai and Elena Ceausescu.

    • Eleonor says:

      Fingers crossed for you!

    • Nikki* says:

      That’s EXACTLY what I thought.

  3. Vava says:

    He has the face he deserves.

  4. Mellie says:

    I came here to say what VV said above…hopefully they all disappear after November…

  5. Ali says:

    So Eric Trump stole money from a cancer charity.

    • tback says:

      To claim COVID-19 is a hoax is so disrespectful and dismissive to those who have lost a loved one to this virus.

    • Mac says:

      Well this seals the deal. He is officially the dumbest in a family of dummies.

    • B n A fn says:

      The entire family, except Baron, is heartless and soulless. They are pretending that we have not lost about 90,000 souls partly because of his father’s incompetence and lying, eg, “it will vanish like magic”, Or something like that.

  6. Lightpurple says:

    Not a single adult member of that extended family gives a damn about a single one of the 90,000 Americans who have died due to their failures. It’s like watching Adolph Eichmann’s statement come to life in contemporary times – that they could only kill him once for the millions he had killed because after a few dozen the mind can comprehend the numbers of lives taken.

    Also, all weekend long Eric and Junior have been pushing a doctored video of Biden touching girls (yes, he hugged and sniffed and made women uncomfortable but this video takes those pictures and doctors them to be even worse) and are pushing the argument that Biden is a pedophile. The idiots forgot that the internet is full of pictures of their father and sister in inappropriate poses including one of him on a bed with an adolescent, but heavily made-up, Ivanka and others of her giving him a lap dance. Twitter responded fiercely.

    Junior is also pushing into investigations into Hunter Biden, claiming he stole our tax money and gave millions of it to China, again forgetting about his sister.

    Eric has a poll up on Twitter this morning asking if you would let Joe Biden drive your child somewhere. Twitter has responded with all sorts of vicious anti-Trump polls.

    This is going to be the dirtiest presidential campaign in history.

    • Jaded says:

      It’s also going to be the most violent presidential campaign in history. I truly believe Trump and his spawn of satan will rile up the MAGAts and exhort them to take up arms to defend against the commies. Heck, they stormed government offices in Michigan armed to the teeth to protest stay-at-home measures.

      I’m pleased that there’s a ton of tea coming out about Tara Reade or whatever name she’s currently going by. She’s an A-class grifter, owes many people a lot of money, and not once did she mention Biden’s alleged attack until he was well down the path to the election. She’s looking for a payday for sure.

      • Lightpurple says:

        She has also now changed the location of the attack to another building entirely, after thousands of people pointed out that the area she described in the Russell Building would have been teeming with Senators, aides, and tourists so there would likely have been dozens, if not hundreds, of witnesses.

      • Jaded says:

        Aha….the thought plickens…

  7. minx says:

    Dumb AND homely.

    • Snappyfish says:

      Exceeding dumb. I actually love how SNL portray him & Don Jr. Eric is basically portrayed as a dumb child & clearly they hit the nail on the head.

      The Trump family are horrible vapid odious Creatures. Please vote so we can send this administration to History’s trash dump & begin to turn back the damage they have done.

  8. 10KTurtle says:

    How is it supposed to magically disappear in November when Daddy already said it would magically disappear by the end of April?
    Man, I never would have guessed all the people dying in Italy were just die-hard Never Trumpers. [pun intended]

    • Brandy Alexander says:

      Oh, they don’t think they the people who died are anti-trumpers. They think they the numbers are inflated and that anyone who has died since the beginning of March was labeled with Covid-19, even if they died from say….. a heart attack or other causes. Unfortunately, I speak fluent deplorable because the majority of my family worship Trump.

      • 10KTurtle says:

        Nobody waste your breath trying to explain how the numbers are really drastically under-reported because we never got enough tests.

      • Brandy Alexander says:

        @10KTurtle – sadly I did waste my breath. For about 5 minutes. Then I remembered who I was talking to, and left the conversation. My cousin, who is in a medical profession and WORKS IN A HOSPITAL was sputtering this nonsense at me.

      • holly hobby says:

        I had one woman on a fb post (i know i know) said the SIP should be lifted because the hospitals weren’t “busy” and had “no business. Usually I don’t respond to this WTFery but I did. I asked her so, we should let everyone out and spread it all around for the sake of giving the hospital “some business?” Naturally she didn’t respond. I didn’t know there were so many dummies in the US.

    • Scal says:

      This. “Oh they test everyone after they die and if they test positive they count it even if they ACTUALLY died from a underlying cause” the other line is that now libs are ‘making up’ kids getting a virus related illness to scare people.

      “Couldn’t keep them at home before-so now they have to make up stuff with kids. Why didn’t the experts say this at he beginning? Fake news!” Almost As if the science keeps finding out new things about a new virus that we didn’t know before and we didn’t start out with all the information at the beginning 🙄

  9. line says:

    American egocentric in all its splendor. So the Democrats, along with all the other world leaders, have decided to create a global virus, which damages the global economy and kills people around the world only to keep Trump from securing a second presidential term ?
    Seriously! It’s not possible to be so stupid!

    • sassafras says:

      If “they” did have the money, power, influence and time to go to the trouble of creating a virus to take out Trump, why didn’t they just sneak something untraceable into his Diet Coke? Seriously, you would think the conspirators would be a little more focused on the efficacy of their efforts. I’m embarrassed for them.

    • AMAyson1977 says:

      This is what boggles my mind. It’s stupid enough to assume that you could get half or more of Americans onboard with this kind of deception, but the massive narcissism and ego to think that the *rest of the world* cares so much about his fat, stupid orange a$$ that *they* would go along with it, too!! It would be laughable if it weren’t so infuriating.

  10. Veronica S. says:

    Satisfying to know that I knew by 19 what these two idiots haven’t figured out pushing forty: being as much a piece of shit as your father won’t make him love you.

    Moderna has had early success with a vaccine candidate. What Trump jump all over that if it manages to go live by the end of the year, even though it had nothing to do with him.

    • Mina_Esq says:

      He will totally try to take credit for the vaccine, just as he is trying to take credit for all the governors’ work!

    • lucy2 says:

      It’s so pathetic how desperate they all are for his love and attention, and they’ll never get it. He’s a monster, and it turned them all into monsters too.

      I was just reading about the Moderna vaccine progress, that’s hopeful.

  11. Mina_Esq says:

    This is an incredibly callous thing to say, even for a dumb-dumb like Eric. 90,000 American families have been shattered because of the virus. He is disrespecting each and every one of those people. What’s next? He is going to say that all the names of the victims are fake? Negate their very existence? Disgusting. I can’t wait until we can all start ignoring these morons.

  12. grabbyhands says:

    Imma need at trigger warning for that face.

  13. ariel says:

    I LOVE the way they play that dolt on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update.
    Kind of perfect, actually.

  14. adastraperaspera says:

    Many people actually believe this idiot, and so we all get trapped at home because Trump supporters won ‘t wear masks. Dangerous!

    • shanaynay says:

      All the MAGA supporters believe it. That is scary!!!!!

    • Valerie says:

      The new theory is that if you wear a mask, they’ll have you wearing a burka next. Which is … Fucking dumb. They don’t even realize how illogical that is. If (and I’m trying to see it from their twisted perspective) this is about some kind of Muslim takeover, why are they going after China? And why aren’t they trusting Dear Leader to protect them? The amount of mental gymnastics these people do is astounding.

  15. Jerusha says:

    jr. looks like he moisturizes with Crisco. #2 looks as dry as the Sahara. ivanka looks like you could bounce a dime off her stretched skin. What a trio.

    • Sparky says:

      Tiffany looks like Ivanka pre-surgery. It’s kind of stunning to see pics of a younger Ivanka. She’s had a bucket load of work done. Also, don’t forget Jared’s botoxed creepy eyebrows.

      • holly hobby says:

        Jared is the face of evil. I want him to be the second one in his family to get a prison term.

  16. BeanieBean says:

    Do y’all see that sign he’s standing in front of? Looks like it’s a trump property, with ‘trump’ above and below it says, ‘welcome to the ultra exclusive…’ and then we can’t see the rest. For some reason, that just makes me laugh–welcome to the ultra exclusive…. That’s a phrase that would only impress grade-schoolers. Why, it’s not just exclusive, it’s ULTRA exclusive.

  17. Valerie says:

    Like a miracle? The way it did when the warmer weather came? Uh huh. These faux-Christians have an awful lot of faith in magic…

  18. TheOriginalMia says:

    If it’s a hoax, why are all the Fox talking heads filming from their homes? Why are they testing everyone who comes into proximity to the Orange Carbuncle? I mean…if they want to have a rally, have at it. Make sure they all sign a waiver saying they won’t seek medical assistance if they get sick, since it’s no worse than the flu. Stop testing Trump and his orbit. Let the germ fly. Let them work that herd immunity.

  19. holly hobby says:

    Ok then why is he separated from drunk Janine? Why doesn’t he go to her studio and do an interview with her? He can spread his germs all over her and the faux crew. Yeah let’s have those nazi rallies where they can all swap spit. The human version of a roach motel.

    Oh yeah, those coffee grits don’t hide the infamous weak Rump chin either.

  20. Emily says:

    He’s got narcissism-by-proxy. It has him believing the entire world: every government, every scientist and every citizen is part of a plot to cause his dad to lose the election.

  21. Jonsey says:

    Why anyone would listen to a charlatan who steals money from a child cancer charity and who always looks like he’s smelling his own farts and loves it, is beyond comprehension.

  22. L says:

    The narcissism is mind-blowing. So he thinks all the other countries of the world are risking their economies just to stop Trump winning US election? Seriously…? Hooo boy…

    This family is so nuts it’s scary.

  23. denise walsh says:

    Yeah the whole planet is in on this big conspiracy theory! Moron!
