On Saturday evening, former judge and host of Fox News’ Opening Statement, Jeanine Pirro blamed the Clinton’s for forcing the Eric Trump Foundation into suspending its operations ahead of its chairman, President-elect Trump’s, inauguration on January 20th.
You see, the Eric Trump Foundation was forced to close due to possible conflicts of interests that could arise during The Donald’s time in office.
“You know, politics gets in the way a lot, sometimes even in the way of dying kids,” Pirro’s segment began before she went on to suggest that the Clinton’s are corrupt, and somehow caused the Eric Trump Foundation to cease all efforts.
How in the world Pirro believes the Clinton’s are to blame is just baffling, but here’s her logic:
‘Because someone was a crook, those children lost. Because someone (Hillary Clinton) lined their own pockets from their so-called charity, laundering money from foreign governments and oligarchs under the guise of starting a presidential library, but actually seeking to pay lawyers and sexual harassment judgments, those children (supported by Trump’s foundation) lost.’
The Eric Trump Foundation halted all operations on Christmas Eve, according to Pirro (talk about impeccable timing), which could lead one to believe that maybe the organization wasn’t set up to benefit these children after all.
Pirro spoke of these sick kids dreams, saying:
‘Children who hoped an angel would come with a gift, not of toys, but the gift of life, all because of a young man named Eric, lost that night.’
That’s when things got interesting. Pirro literally blamed the Clinton family for halting the operations of the Eric Trump Foundation.
‘A young man who did nothing but good for all the right reasons could not continue to do good because evil was assumed to be the norm as Scrooge and the Ghosts of Clintons Past visited the Eric Trump Foundation and the children who benefited.’
Is this lady for real?! Honestly?! It’s almost laughable how Republicans will co-opt a story or an angle to fit their own personal agenda. Say what you want about the Clintons, but to suggest they had anything to do with the halt of the Eric Trump Foundation’s efforts is not only unsubstantiated, but utterly ridiculous.
