Eric Trump, son of former President Donald Trump, is facing backlash for criticizing President Joe Biden's time away from the White House. Twitter users quickly jumped at the opportunity to remind him of his own father's excessive traveling and overuse of the Secret Service for those trips on American taxpayers’ dime.

On Monday, October 18, Eric appeared on Fox News with host Sean Hannity where he offered his take on the president spending time at his personal property. He also accused others in the Biden administration of leaving Washington D.C., during the Afghanistan withdrawal instead of "getting to work" to resolve key issues.

"The other thing that really bothers me, Sean, about this situation is, where is everybody during this crisis?" he asked host Sean Hannity. "Every crisis that Biden has and every single day there's another one, whether it be Afghanistan or the border, right, the leaders leave."

"So Pete Buttigieg during this whole crisis is nowhere to be found," Eric Trump said. "He's on paternity leave, right, but then you add Kamala Harris when you have this massive border crisis and where does she go? She goes nowhere near the border in fact she goes to South America to not solve that problem and she goes overseas to Asia to again not work on that problem."

Vox reporter Aaron Rupar tweeted, "Eric Trump criticizes Joe Biden for spending time at his personal property instead of the White House. Irony is deader than dead."

Another user wrote, "Eric has successfully demonstrated that the human body can successfully survive without a brain."
