Eric Trump shot back at CNN's Jake Tapper after the anchor cut off an interview with his wife Lara Trump on Sunday.
Tapper & # 39; s Tense Interview with Lara Trump
Things got tense when Lara appeared on State Of The Union when Tapper attacked her for previously taunting Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for stuttering.
"How do you think young stuttering children feel when they see you making such a comment?" Tapper said when playing a clip of Lara who said in January that Biden is unable to "get the words out".
Lara replied that she "had no idea" about Biden's struggle with stuttering, adding, "I think what we see on stage with Joe Biden is clearly a cognitive decline."
After saying she was "uncomfortable" seeing Biden speak, Tapper cut her off and said, "OK … it's so amazing to me that … a cognitive decline."

Tapper goes for Lara Trump
The CNN host fell silent when Lara said again that she didn't know Biden's story of stuttering, but he still didn't buy it.
"I think you made fun of their stuttering, and I think you have absolutely no right to diagnose someone's cognitive decline," said Tapper when Lara tried to speak.
"I would think someone in the Trump family would be more sensitive to people who do not have a medical license to diagnose politicians remotely," he said. "A lot of people have diagnosed your (father-in-law) from afar … I'm sure it offends you."

"I'm not diagnosing him," Lara replied as they tried to keep talking about each other.
"It is very worrying for a lot of people that this could be the leader of the free world," she added. "That's all I say. I'm really sorry for Joe Biden."
Tapper found this last statement too "triggering" to continue the interview.
“Thank you Lara. I appreciate that, ”he said dryly. "I'm sure it was from a place of concern. We all believe that."
