Eric Trump complains about American democracy being a "little boy's club": "Trump'ire" state is just the beginning of his dad's political uprising

He doesn't hear the words that come of out his mouth, does he?

On Fox & Friends Monday morning, Donald Trump's son Eric assured the co-hosts that his father will be "winning big" tomorrow and going forward, thereby vitiating concerns that the Republicans will have to resort to brokering their convention.

Eric complained about the lines to vote in Arizona, as if that wasn't the whole point of voter registration laws passed by Republicans. "You have people waiting for three or four hours to vote," he said. "Those people's opinions, those people's time -- they're stripped from them."

"That's just not democracy."

Ainsley Earhardt chimed in, asking whether, "at this time, can anything be done? Your father's complaining about the system -- but is there anything that can be done?"

"We're going to win," Eric Trump replied -- without actually answering the question or addressing the issue. "We're going to win big. In Pennsylvania, in Connecticut, we're going to win. We're going to win New Jersey, Maryland, and California."

Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked if that means that the Trump campaign isn't planning on "playing the delegate game, you just win it outright, let the chips fall where they may?"

"In the real world," Trump replied, "you always have 'Plan A,' 'Plan B,' 'Plan C.' But we're going to win -- we're going to get to 1,237."
