Eric Trump Didn't See That Coming

That he didn't see it coming is par for the course. This is why his dad's campaign is hopeless.

You have to be pretty clueless not to see why these sorts of things happen. But Team Trump never does. Eric Trump is just amazed that Hispanic surrogates dropped Trump after his Arizona speech.

"Eric Trump: 'Pretty amazing' that Hispanic surrogates withdrew support after speech."

It's amazing that you find it amazing.

"Eric Trump expressed incredulity Friday in reaction to the disavowal of two of the campaign's Hispanic surrogates in the wake of Donald Trump's immigration speech this week, suggesting that the campaign would try to reach back out to them and clarify his father's position on the issue."

"Both Jacob Monty, a member of Trump's National Hispanic Advisory Council, and surrogate Alfonso Aguilar, the president of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, said Thursday that they are no longer supporting the Republican nominee. Other members of the council have suggested that they might also pull their support."

"Which is actually pretty amazing, considering the speech. It was actually very consistent and has been very consistent with his plan," Eric Trump remarked during an interview on "Fox & Friends," calling it "really interesting."

On the other hand, that is a fact. Trump has been totally consistent about this all along. That some chose to believe he was 'softening' is in itself, pretty amazing.

How these Hispanic surrogates didn't see this coming doesn't speak so well of their judgment either.

Meanwhile, Dwayne Wade reveals something that should surprise, much less 'amaze' anyone, but probably will amaze Eric Trump: Dwayne Wade was pretty repulsed by Trump's attempt to politicize Wade's cousin's death.

"In his first comments since Donald Trump marked the shooting death of his cousin in Chicago with a tweet declaring it more evidence that African-Americans would vote for Trump, basketball star Dwyane Wade said the Republican nominee's message left him feeling "kind of conflicted."

"You know, it’s like, on one hand, your cousin’s death is used as a ploy for political gain," Wade told ABC's George Stephanopoulos in an interview airing Friday on "Good Morning America." But, Wade acknowledged that the violence in his hometown of Chicago is a "national story," adding, "I want eyes on this city."

Wade said that while he was "grateful that it started a conversation," it also left a "bad taste in my mouth, because of you know, what my family is dealing with and what our city of Chicago is dealing with, and it looks like it’s being used as a political gain.”

"After news broke of the death of Nykea Aldridge, who was not the intended target of the shooting, Trump tweeted, "Dwayne Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!" He initially misspelled Wade's first name, later fixing the tweet and expressing his condolences in a later message."

This is another characteristic of Trump. Every tragedy is about him and how he's the solution for everything. I'm sure Eric Trump also doesn't see why this is a problem.
