Yesterday, most people were horrified when a gang of insurrectionists took over the nation's capitol, halting the certification of President-elect Joe Biden's win. While President Trump egged on the violent rioters, and Democrats and Republicans alike condemned it, his daughter Tiffany Trump turned her attentions elsewhere.
She wished her half-brother Eric Trump a happy birthday with a photo of the two of them standing in the very same capital city that was under siege at that very moment.
Her caption read:
"Happy Birthday @erictrump I love you and I'm so grateful to always have you by my side! ❤️"
Many were quick to condemn her tone-deafness.

There is less than two weeks left in the Trump presidency, no matter what he tries to do. Joe Biden will be sworn in on January 20.
