If you haven’t heard, it was recently Eric Trump’s birthday and the GOP realized that no one really gives a f*ck about that — so the ruling party of the United States begged Americans to wish Dear Leader’s little (adult) boy a happy birthday.
It, um, didn’t go well. The GOP begged Americans to “sign his card” which came complete with a donation form directing wellwishers to give money to Trump’s legal fund…or the Republican Party (you can really take your pick there).

Naturally, Americans showed Eric Trump the respect he deserved — and by that, we mean none at all:
Which prison should we send that card to?

A ruling party statement that the public should prepare well wishes for the second son of the leader is the kind of communication one would expect from an eccentric family dictatorship not a modern democracy.

In honor of your birthday, I’ve composed a little poem for you:
Roses are red,
though some too are pink.
I can’t wait for the day
when your family’s locked in the CLINK.

At this point, we have to wonder how much longer Republicans can allow the Trumps to stay in power. Any time the Trump name is attached to anything, the response is at minimum widespread mockery.
Is America great again yet?
