Eric Trump on Thursday evening tried to bash one of his father’s arch-nemeses, CNN, by predicting that the network would not cover his father’s personal donation to the recovery efforts for Hurricane Harvey.
His attempt to burn the network failed miserably, however.
Eric Trump published his tweet criticizing CNN around 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Yet CNN had published a story on Trump’s donation pledge hours earlier, soon after the White House announced the planned contribution, and the network also covered it on the air.
