Eric Trump whined about “the weaponization of politics” and promptly got taken to task on Twitter.
Critics mocked former President Donald Trump’s son, suggesting he was trying to play the victim with his post.
“Just more harassment,” he tweeted on Friday, claiming “the weaponization of politics and evilness of the far left is hard to comprehend.”
Just more harassment… the weaponization of politics and evilness of the far left is hard to comprehend…

The tweet came after the Justice Department ruled the Treasury Department must turn over copies of his father’s tax returns to a congressional committee.
On the same day, a report said Trump in December urged senior Justice Department officials to “just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me.”
“Pot, meet kettle,” one person replied to the Trump scion.
“Someone call the waaaaaambulance,” wrote another.
“My names Eric. My family are victims.”

Interesting that the search for truth feels like persecution to you Eric. Or are you just terrified you’re going to end up being the fall guy? https://t.co/szc7UUiXdZ

Gums, you're not a victim. Your daddy is not a victim. Junior, Ivanka, Jared, and Melania are not victims.Facing consequences for bad or illegal behavior does not make one of victim of harassment. https://t.co/mYAK64MNrl
