Poor Eric Trump! He desperately wants to be his father’s favorite child, but that position will always be held by his sister, Ivanka, who seems to be “close” to her father in ways that make most people’s skin crawl.
Eric isn’t even as relevant as his brother, Don Jr., who at least gets to flash the “Donald” name everywhere he goes.
As a result, Eric has to try harder than he should, and his efforts usually result in him humiliating himself and his family in new and embarrassing ways.
Such is the case today, when Eric decided to comment on a headline from a story that appeared on the website Mediaite:
Stunning Poll Finds 60 Percent of Americans Approve of Trump’s Coronavirus Response https://t.co/4ZmdVWoBWJ
— Mediaite (@Mediaite) March 25, 2020
Seems the president’s son took great offense to the headline and the photo used by Mediaite, so he posted this in response:
Why is this “stunning?” @realDonaldTrump has done an incredible job. The subtle nastiness of this headline combined with choice of picture tells you all you need to know about the #MainstreamMedia. Shame on you @Mediaite https://t.co/R7ZW8CH5kx

Donald Trump has done an incredible job during the COVID-19 crisis? He’s been a day late and several dollars (not to mention several thousand gloves, masks, and ventilators) short. Now he’s even suggesting that we all go back to work so the stock market will be happy and he’ll get a second term in office. Because, as usual, it’s all about Donnie.
Twitter users were quick to set Eric straight on just what average Americans think about his father’s actions so far:
Maybe because your father has essentially suggested that we sacrifice the elderly and the weak at the altar of the Dow.
The fact that you can’t see that is all you need to know about you.

Doctors. Nurses. Police. Firefighters. Grocery Store Employees. Pharmacy store emaployees. Truck Drivers. Sanitation employees. These are the hero’s. Not your ego hunting dad. #yourefailingus45

So whining is a family trait. Even while Americans are dying a gruesome death. Interesting.

Where’s the masks?
Where’s the ventilators?
Your fathers actions only really makes sense if you look at it like he’s trying to kill us.

It’s stunning because @realDonaldTrump is responsible for this whole mess. He didn’t act soon enough and is now blaming others. He gave each state the impression that he was in charge just to renounce by blaming governors. Face it, daddy never was or will be presidential material

As many noted in their replies to Eric, the worst of the COVID-19 crisis in the United States is likely yet to come. The number of cases and deaths continues to rise. And healthcare workers still don’t have the personal protective equipment they need.
Donald Trump is a failure as president and as a human being. And his son, Eric, is a clueless little weasel.
