New York City, NY—
Eric Trump, son of President Donald Trump, is apparently very proud of his father’s latest career move.
At approximately 2:30pm this afternoon, Eric Trump asked the Trump Organization’s board room “Do you know who my father is?” for the third time.
It’s an increasingly common hat-trick of corporate nepotism, of which board members are beginning to tire.
“Obviously we know who his father is,” said one board member who requested anonymity to avoid repercussions from the Trump family. “But, frankly, I find Eric’s repeated rhetorical questions to be childish.”
“His outbursts are really harming the open and friendly atmosphere of the boardroom,” said another board member. “Well-meaning employees no longer feel comfortable expressing their opinions on business matters if they think it might upset Eric.”
The Trump Organization board of directors has spent weeks brainstorming ideas on how to mitigate some of the negative effects of President Trump’s controversial and increasingly unpopular presidency, which has encouraged boycotts against several Trump properties.
“These are very serious issues, but I feel that Eric just doesn’t take them seriously,” said the first board member. “The trouble started with him installing a Nintendo Gamecube in the boardroom, and things have just got worse from there. He brought in a bean bag chair, he installed several hamster cages—thankfully I was able to get Donald to convince him that a trampoline wouldn’t fit in the room.”
Since his father assumed the presidency, Eric Trump has taken on a much larger role in the day to day operations of the Trump Organization, but it is unclear if Mr. Trump enjoys the responsibility and work involved.
“The worst part is that Eric is a sore loser,” said the second board member. “We can’t start board meetings until Eric wins a few matches of Super Smash Brothers in a row, and when he loses he throws his controller at the TV. What 33-year-old does that? He’s such a bad sport that everyone lets him win, and then he makes fun of us for the rest of the day.”
The Halfway Post tried to reach out to Eric Trump by phone for a comment, but Mr. Trump would only talk to us in a high-pitched voice pretending to be his sister, Ivanka Trump.
