Donald Trump’s second-oldest son, Eric, took to Twitter Tuesday morning to urge Minnesota Trump supporters to “get out and vote” — a week after the polls closed.
The tweet, likely a wrongly scheduled tweet meant for last Tuesday, was deleted less than an hour after it was posted, but not before drawing ridicule across the interwebs.
One user mockingly lamented: “When you schedule the tweet but it’s already after dad lost the election.”
Pennsylvania state representative Brian Sims replied: “BLURP: So the ‘team’ that scheduled a press conference at a landscaping business, and a tweet a week after the election, wants you to believe they’ve discovered fraud somewhere.”

Another tweet quipped: “Tired: We must know the winner on election day! Wired: We must continue voting a week after the election!”
The same user followed up with: “Hey, Eric. What’s the number for that voter fraud hotline? I need to report something.”
Writer Tony Posnanski posted: “Dammit! I guess Eric is the dumbest Trump child today.”

“Oh honey no not EVERY Tuesday,” another tweeted.
