Right now, there is a race going on in the state of Missouri. This race is the GOP primary. Who will be the pick of Republicans in Missouri to run for Senate? Well — it just might be Eric. Or Eric. Or Eric. This was not a typo. There really are three Erics in this race. Eric, Eric, and Eric are all running to be Missouri’s next Republican Senator.

It’s the case of the multiple Erics. And the Lord of the lies, Donald Trump, has just endorsed one of them. The problem is — nobody knows which one. That’s right. In a desperate effort to be cute, Trump endorsed, for the Missouri race, “Eric.” He did not give a last name.

S.E. Cupp on CNN summed things up perfectly: “I call this the hey, you endorsement.”

Indeed it is. I also think Trump is likely afraid to actually endorse ANY of the Eric’s by their full name because he wants to be on the winner’s side. And after whichever Eric wins, Trump can just say, “That’s the Eric I meant.” It’s embarrassing. It’s embarrassing to think this crazed THING ever represented this country.

Trump’s weird, ambiguous endorsement is causing a lot of chuckles, but people are definitely NOT laughing WITH Trump — they’re laughing AT him. In the meantime, it does not help that at least two of the Eric’s are claiming Trump was talking about THEM. It’s the battle of the Eric’s.


I’ve got news for all three of these candidates. Trump likely couldn’t care less which of you wins. He only wants to back the winner — that is all that matters to him. Or perhaps he meant his son — Eric Trump. No matter. “ERIC” has Trump’s “complete and total endorsement.” It’s quite an endorsement — the oddest endorsement seen in a very long time.
