The unreasonableness of liberals has become breath-taking since Donald Trump was elected — and Wednesday, they reached a new low.
The left’s nasty hatred of anyone that stands against Democrat Hillary Clinton has become so unhinged, they’re forcing millions of dollars of charity for children’s cancer research be forfeited — all because the Christian generosity is associated with Trump’s family.
That’s right — the left would rather let kids die of cancer than stop harassing the First Family.
One of the president-elect’s sons, Eric Trump, has announced he will stop directly raising money for his namesake foundation after the mainstream media attacked him with unfounded accusations he was selling access to his father.
Eric Trump said Wednesday that it pained him to cease soliciting donations for his organization, which he says has raised more than $15 million for terminally ill children with cancer. The foundation came under vicious attack from the left recently after posting an online auction for coffee with his sister Ivanka.
“Fighting childhood cancer is a cause that has been central to my life since I was 21 years old,” Eric Trump said. “It’s an extremely sad day when doing the right thing isn’t the right thing. That said, raising awareness for the cause will be a lifelong mission for me.”
Trump, the younger of the president-elect’s two adult sons, has raised enough money over the last decade to fund a new intensive care unit at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, which provides free medical care for children. But critics attacked the charity after an invitation offered a hunting trip with Eric or his bother Donald Jr. in exchange for donations of $500,000 or $1 million to help sick kids.
Both the coffee and hunting ventures have been scuttled.
Eric Trump said he will likely wind down the Eric Trump Foundation, but refuses to stop his public advocacy against childhood cancer. About $5 million of a $20 million, 10-year commitment to St. Jude’s remains outstanding, money that likely will be raised by donations from patrons at Trump-owned hotels and golf courses.
Don Jr. and Eric Trump, who were among the Republican businessman’s closest campaign advisers and have played an active role in the transition, are planning to remain in New York to run the massive Trump Organization once their father takes office. The president-elect, whom critics have demanded sell all of his families assets, will address the future of the company at a press conference in January.
