‘Irresponsible’ Eric Trump Slammed For High-Fiving, Shaking Hands With Maskless Voters

“Eric Trump ignored coronavirus safety guidelines to high-five and shake hands with supporters of his father, President Donald Trump. The president’s son ― who was out on the campaign trail in Michigan on behalf of his dad Tuesday ― did not wear a mask during the exchange. Neither did most of the supporters. Michigan is currently suffering a rapid uptick in new daily confirmed cases of COVID-19. More than 7,000 people in the state have now died from the coronavirus. It has sickened at least 149,000 more.

They also reminded the president’s son of his own father’s contraction of the disease that saw him hospitalized for three days earlier this month. His brother, Donald Trump. Jr., has drawn similar criticism in recent weeks by attending similar rallies. This is truly disgusting especially *after* Michigan ordered a shelter in place for Ann Arbor undergrads https://t.co/8Z9AY8aSIg— Jashvina ShAAAaaaah 👻 (@icehockeystick) October 20, 2020 Super spreaders, every one of them— Terry Dresbach (@draiochta14) October 20, 2020 This is insane. https://t.co/GZwZZ5rcI6— Don Winslow (@donwinslow) October 20, 2020 Get ready for another COVID Superspreader Event Michigan.— liberalgoddess #IVoted #VetsForBiden (@liberalgoddess) October 20, 2020 Put a f*cking mask on. https://t.co/oaGfntis9E— Abdul El-Sayed, MD, DPhil (@AbdulElSayed) October 20, 2020 \”Here, have some of my Dad’s virus.
