Eric Trump: Hillary Clinton is the Definition of ‘Unfit’


After an improvised explosive device detonated in the Chelsea neighborhood in New York City, both candidates gave reactions that starkly contrasted with one another.

On the premiere of Perino & Stirewalt: I’ll Tell You What, Dana Perino and Chris Stirewalt discussed those differences in the candidates’ responses to the explosion.

At a Colorado speech, Trump said on stage flatly that a bomb went off in New York, and that “we are living in a [dangerous] time, and we better get very, very tough.”

Clinton, on her campaign plane, calmly told reporters that “it is important to know the facts about any incident…and it is critical to support our first-responders…to try to find out what did happen. It is wiser to wait until you info before you make conclusions.”

Stirewalt said that Clinton was “trying to be as somber and presidential as she can”, in contrast with Trump’s oft brash, speak-one's-mind custom.

But, he said, to some voters, candidates’ responses may not matter as much as to others:

“When bad things happen the people that support [each candidate] say [their candidate] can fix.”

“Trump benefits from being from the ‘out’ party,” Perino said, referring to the party out-of-power.

“The best position to run for president is the position where your party is not in the White House because you can say whatever you want.”
