Trump’s Son: We’ll Get the Last Laugh

Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, is confident that his father and his campaign will get the last laugh come election time.

“We’ll take some shots back next year. He who laughs last laughs longest, right?” Trump said to The Hill in the reception area before the annual White House Correspondent’s Dinner.

“I’d be shocked if [Obama] didn’t [take shots at Donald],” Eric Trump’s wife, Lara Yunaska, said.

The Hill reports:

Eric Trump, the executive vice president of development and acquisitions at The Trump Organization, seemed excited for his first visit to the soiree.

“I build hotels,” said Trump. “We don’t do politics. This is uncharted territory to me.”

And like the Trumps predicted, President Obama took several shots at the Republican front-runner.

“Is this dinner too tacky for the Donald?” said Obama. “What could he possibly be doing instead? Is he at home eating a Trump steak? Tweeting out insults to Angela Merkel? What’s he doing?

“The guy wanted to give his hotel business a boost, and now we’re praying Cleveland makes it through July,” Obama said, referring to the Republican National Convention this summer.
