Eric Trump, the touter of an imaginary coronavirus vaccine, earned yet another roasting on Twitter Tuesday as people pointed out a major flaw with his latest attack on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Donald Trump’s son was mocked after he shared two photographs ― one showing hundreds of people crowding a Trump campaign rally, the other of Biden speaking to a socially distanced drive-in rally in Ohio on Monday.
“The polls are wrong…,” Eric Trump captioned the images.
Twitter users noted a big problem with Eric Trump’s argument against polls showing a sizeable Biden lead in the 2020 election.
Namely, that Biden was being responsible at his event because of the coronavirus pandemic, and the president and his rally fans ― standing side by side without face masks ― were anything but.
“You’re comparing the super spreader moronic events that you guys hold to this safe socially distance drive in rallies,” responded one critic.
Another referenced the president’s coronavirus illness: “One is responsible and the other is Covid infected Super Spreader. I’ll go with the responsible adult, not the narcissist.”
Donald Trump has declared himself free of the virus that hospitalized him for three days and has resumed campaigning ― without following coronavirus precautions.
Or Biden has a smarter campaign and supporters who believe in science. My whole family is voting Biden and we’d never go to a rally. Democracy doesn’t need to look like a frat party to work.

Joe chooses not to kill people. I like presidents who don't kill people just so their fragile egos get stroked.

You’re comparing the super spreader moronic events that you guys hold to his safe socially distanced drive in rallies. Literally no comparison except that I’m voting for the one that wants to keep me safe 🙄

Sure. We just aren’t completely idiotic during a pandemic. You know what parades I have been enjoying very much. The voting parades we have been seeing. Good luck Eric. Prison is in your 2021 timeline

Speaking of wrong -- do you think exposing crowds of your supporters to possible infection a few weeks before the election is a good strategy?

Yeah. By election day a good number of people in the bottom picture will be too sick to get out and vote.

Keep telling yourself that. There are quite a few of us that don’t feel the need to go to obnoxious rallies. We don’t need a reality tv president. And we’re ok with Joe being careful & respecting the sanctity of health & life. So...

Eric Trump, meanwhile, on Tuesday continued to stump for his father at events in Detroit and Minnesota. The president’s son shared pictures from an indoor rally on Twitter. Many attendees were not wearing masks.
