Things got intense on Sunday as ABC's Jon Karl held an interview with Eric Trump, and the son of President Donald Trump ended up using much of it to wail on the media's critical coverage on his father.

The interview for This Week began with Karl asking Trump if there was "any concern" about his father's plan to get back on the campaign trail soon. Karl asked this question while referencing to the president's tightly-packed White House rally on Saturday, which comes shortly after the super-spreader event that apparently left the president and numerous top Republicans infected with Covid-19.

After Trump defended the White House event by pointing to the attendees wearing masks (a departure from previous events), he then diverted in order to blast violent protesters who don't wear masks. He complained that the media "never" condemns those people, and then asked "why is it that it's only Trump events that are called out?"

Karl parried Trump's media gripes and false claims throughout the interview, but the combativeness escalated when the ABC journalist started to press the president's son over the New York Times' report on his dad's questionable tax avoidance schemes. Karl especially honed in on the part of the report saying numerous corporations, special interest groups and foreign governments did business with the Trump Organization in recent years, which invites scrutiny over the government benefits they've received from the administration.

"We've lost a fortune!" Trump responded. "My father lost a fortune running for president. He doesn't care."

As Trump continued to filibuster against his father's opponents, Karl tried to get the interview back on track, but the president's son demanded "let me finish" before telling people to Google pictures of Joe Biden's house. Karl finally managed to regain control by grilling Trump on the core of the Times' reporting, asking "how is that not at the very least a huge appearance of a conflict of interest?"

"We're a hospitality company," Trump answered. "The New York Times is absolute fake news. All they want to do is take down my father."

Watch above, via ABC.

Jon Karl laid out a list of misdeeds by the Trump organization, such as Trump giving government contracts to people who patronize his hotels and golf courses.  

Eric Trump did not deny the specifics of any of the allegations. His response was "We've lost a fortune!"

So we should feel sorry for someone who was less successful than he hoped at being totally corrupt ?

A rotten apple doesn't fall far from a corrupted tree!

When a reporter accuses you of unethical or criminal activity with your business and your best and only reply is "we've lost a fortune" , you might as well glue a "Guilty" sign to your forehead.

Eric ( the toothy one ) was never kept 'in the loop' about anything important.  His father, DJT loses money all the time, everywhere, on anything he does.  His presidency has made him some money except the amounts are far to small to cover his massive debts which are being held by unknown entities.

If Eric wasn't a Trump he'd be working a cashier register in an adult video store.

Eric Trump does bother me. I'm kind of prejudiced against scum bags.
