Eric Trump also tweeted a photo of himself standing shoulder to shoulder with other maskless supporters of his father in Livingston County:
And he posted this picture of supporters ― also not wearing masks ― in the crowd at an event in Lansing:
Critics slammed Eric Trump as “irresponsible” for flouting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advice that people should wear face masks, avoid close contact and socially distance.
They also reminded the president’s son that his father ― whose failed coronavirus leadership has included defying health guidelines ― caught the disease and was hospitalized for three days earlier this month.
The president’s oldest son, Donald Trump. Jr., has drawn similar criticism in recent weeks by attending campaign rallies now known for their trademark maskless crowds.
This is truly disgusting especially *after* Michigan ordered a shelter in place for Ann Arbor undergrads https://t.co/8Z9AY8aSIg
