The GOP Asked The Internet To Sign a Birthday Card for Eric Trump. It Backfired Spectacularly

The internet was met with an unusual request on Friday: Sign a birthday card for President Donald Trump’s second son, Eric Trump, who turned 34 on Saturday.

“It’s almost Eric Trump’s birthday! Make sure to sign his card and include your personal message here,” the tweet reads.

It didn’t go well. Mere moments after the RNC tweeted out the call to sign an e-card for Eric and offer a “personal message” to him, the mockery and criticism was on. Some people were just laughing and joking about it, while others seemed distinctly disturbed by the tone and tenor of the request, likening it to the sort of thing you’d see in countries far less democratic than the United States. Here are some of the best examples.

It’s no surprise that people reacted the way they did. Republicans were asking people to celebrate the adult son of one of the most unpopular presidents in the history of American polling, and a private citizen who just days ago sent out a tweet claiming Twitter’s algorithmic suggestion that he follow Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Ellen DeGeneres was an example of the “deep state.”
