Eric Trump Just Tweeted A Photo From The Oval Office And Ended Up Humiliating His Dad

Every day our president seems to lose a little bit more of what vacant mind he has left. Just this morning, he went on a freewheeling improvisation speech in front of FBI academy graduates, in which he invented a description of the Diversity Immigrant Visa program. He ended up sounding like a child giving a book report on a novel he’s never read.

The United States went from an urbane, brilliant, compassionate leader in President Obama to an inane, hateful, overgrown man-child in President Trump. The former reality television personality knows little about the world, but what’s worse is that he doesn’t care to educate himself at all. He lives in a twisted fantasy world, and every day he invites the world to enter into it with him.

Sometimes it feels like the country is rudderless and that the Oval Office is completely vacant, other times it’s painfully clear that we have a monster with the attention span of a lab rat and the temperament of a petulant child stomping through the halls of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Recently, the president’s murine son Eric Trump tweeted out an image of the president’s office in which the commander-in-chief is absent but a baby — Eric’s son Luke — is seated behind the Resolute Desk. It was a transparent attempt to be cute and humanize the Trump family as a whole, but most users saw it as a fitting metaphor for our infantile president.

Eric Trump is perhaps the dullest bulb in a family full of dolts, so it’s hardly surprising that he tweeted out an image that could so obviously and immediately be repurposed as a mockery of his father.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

Twitter users were quick to pile on. Some made the only slightly hyperbolic observation that a literal child would do a better job at running the country than Donald Trump. Others took aim at Trump’s deteriorating mental state, alluding to the fact that the president could soon be urinating and defecating in his pants much like a newborn. 

While it’s perhaps one of the least offensive things Trump’s vile son has done in the public eye, it’s another stark reminder of how clueless the entire family is as to how the public views them. He blithely teed up a hilarious takedown of his father, and Americans knocked it out of the park. Perhaps Donald should be a little more careful about who he lets into the Oval Office.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!
