Eric Trump’s latest attempt at Twitter trolling went so poorly that he had to delete the message.
Trump, a son of President Donald Trump, shared an image of former President Bill Clinton at the 2010 wedding of his daughter, Chelsea. Circled in the background was Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime associate of late pedophile sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. She was arrested Thursday.
“Birds of a feather,” Trump wrote as he shared the image.
Just one problem: President Trump has also been seen with Maxwell on numerous occasions, and Twitter users weren’t shy about sharing images of those events, causing Eric Trump’s name to trend on Twitter.
He deleted the tweet without explaining why ― but it likely had something to do with the response:
Eric Trump, who tweeted earlier about Bill Clinton and Ghislaine Maxwell, was literally himself on his dad’s private jet with her. FFS. You cannot make this stuff up. https://t.co/dz7jo9H002— Mehdi Hasan (@mehdirhasan) July 3, 2020
So Eric Trump posted a picture of Ghislaine Maxwell at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, forgetting that there are like a billion pictures of Ghislaine with his dad?— Molly Jong-Fast🏡 (@MollyJongFast) July 3, 2020
This is a great example of why I think so little of Eric Trump (and the other one). https://t.co/vuq41FQtPQ— Jonah Goldberg (@JonahDispatch) July 3, 2020
