There has been plenty of argument about which of Donald Trump’s adult sons is dumber than the other. Mary Trump recently said in an interview that Donald Trump Jr is the dumbest one, and his recent public appearances would certainly seem to support that. But Eric Trump has long been perceived by the general public as the dumb one, and he seems intent on claiming that title.
Days ago, Eric Trump tweeted a photo of a fairly large house and asked how Joe Biden could afford it on his Senator salary. But the house in question didn’t belong to Biden, and of course Biden hasn’t been a Senator since 2008. Now Eric has topped that by tweeting a fake photoshopped picture of Ice Cube and 50 Cent wearing Trump hats, which he’s since deleted.
It raises the question of whether Eric Trump is tweeting these things because he’s too stupid to understand that they’re fake, or because he’s too stupid to understand that he’s going to get called out for tweeting fake images. Either way, Eric sure wants to prove that he’s at least as dumb as his older brother.
