“Everything this guy does is low energy and awkward…,” Eric Trump captioned a photo of a Biden event in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on Monday.
Everyone in the picture was following social distancing measures aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19, wearing face masks and sitting apart.
Eric Trump’s detractors pointed out the stark contrast of the image to those from campaign rallies his father has held amid the coronavirus pandemic where many supporters have not worn masks or socially distanced.
Public health experts believe the president’s June rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, “more than likely” contributed to a surge in cases in the area.
The president has also repeatedly downplayed the risk posed by the virus and sent mixed messages on the need for masks.
The pandemic has now killed at least 190,000 people in the U.S. and almost 900,000 worldwide.
The dumbest of all the Trumps, tweets that social distancing and mask wearing is low energy and awkward.
We’re in the middle of pandemic, Eric. He’s following the science, caring about his fellow Americans and setting an example. You’re a dad, since yours sucks, follow Joe. https://t.co/wavyPMb0bi

You just called someone else awkward. Wow.
Also, he’s following medically advised protocols to help stop a deadly pandemic, you fucking little dweeb. https://t.co/NHKxSYlsFm

Good grief. The Trump’s are so into superficial they have no understanding of authentic or down to earth or real relationships and communications. They mock people who have feelings, genuinely listen or respect others. That’s sad. https://t.co/g4KY2LjTZi
