'Making things a whole lot worse': Eric Trump mocked on Twitter after accidental confession about his father
Eric Trump is being relentlessly mocked for how he portrayed his father, former President Donald Trump, during his time in the White House.
On Tuesday, August 9, Eric Trump appeared on Fox News shortly after a search warrant was executed at his father's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. During the interview, he claimed President Joe Biden must have approved the U.S. Department of Justice's action.
According to HuffPost, Eric Trump reasoned: "That’s how it worked when Trump was in office."
Despite the claims, most presidents have made efforts to distance themselves from these types of investigations. In fact, Biden even revealed he learned of the search like most Americans: by way of the news.
But Eric Trump appears to have suggested that his father did the opposite. That suggestion wasn't missed by Twitter users.
The government accountability group Media's Touch tweeted, "This actually may be a confession that Donald Trump attempted to wield power over the Department of Justice in inappropriate ways. Eric is making things a whole lot worse for his family every time he opens his mouth."
"So unintentionally telling. Ya see, gumbo, that's how it worked in the White House when ya dad, Cheeto Jaba, gurgled and slothed and lounged his way thru the place," tweeted political ad writer, Cliff Schecter. "This is not, in fact, how it works in a normal White House."
"Eric Trump, the least smart of the not-too-bright Trump children, claims he knows 'the system' and the Mar-a-Lago raid 'did not happen without Joe Biden's explicit approval.' This may be a reveal about the Trump White House, but Biden isn't a criminal," another user tweeted.
