Eric Trump made an appearance on Newsmax Wednesday evening to sing his dad's praises during a segment of "Eric Bolling The Balance" in which he celebrated his family's "killing" of another legacy.

Speaking to host Eric Bolling, Trump said "Last night my father killed another political dynasty, and that's the Cheneys. He first killed the Bushes, then he killed the Clintons, and last night he killed the Cheneys. He's been rino hunting ever since he got into politics, and last night he was successful again."

In another portion of the interview, Trump painted a picture of how the American public views his family favorably, going so far as to offer to pay for a recent dinner he shared with his wife, Lara, while out at a restaurant.

"Lara and I were at dinner the other night, and there were two tables that started arguing about paying for our bill," Trump said. "It was a little casual place. They wanted to pay for our bill to say sorry for what the country was doing to my father, to our family. People right now would crawl over broken glass for Donald Trump."
