Last night, Omarosa Manigault-Newman released an audio tape purporting to show the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump offering her a do-nothing job on Donald Trump‘s 2020 campaign, in exchange for her silence over her time at the White House.

After the tape came out, Lara Trump issued a statement, calling Omarosa’s reveal a “betrayal.”

“I hope it’s all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can’t put a price on,” she said.

Her husband, Eric Trump, went one step not nearly as far, instead issuing a subtweet directed at the former reality TV star turned official in his father’s White House.

A truly savage subtweet.

But lest you think that was the only way Eric Trump rushed to his wife’s defense, he also “liked” two tweets about the matter.

Naturally, Twitter had a few thoughts.

Omarosa has promised many more tapes, so maybe Eric Trump will have a chance to do a stronger tweet next time.
