Eric Trump's attempts to back up his father on social media have taken yet another clumsy turn.
President Trump has been especially active on Twitter lately, but not because he's reaching out to the millions of Americans affected by the global pandemic.
Oh no. He's intent on spreading completely untrue conspiracy theories about his political opponents. Of course, there's nothing President Trump can say that his sons won't herald as genius.
But Eric isn't exactly doing his dad any favors.

It seems all the Trumps know the best words. If only they could learn to use them in the correct order, they might start to make some sense.
