Eric Trump on Thursday tried to buck up his father's supporters -- but ended up getting brutally mocked instead.
In a Thursday afternoon tweet, Trump declared that "the polls are wrong" and posted footage of a Trump boater parade as proof.
The Trump campaign has regularly pointed to boater parades, which often feature supporters who own pricey power yachts, as evidence that they have enthusiasm on their side.
However, as many of Trump's Twitter followers pointed out, the vast majority of Americans do not own a yacht, which means the boater parades are not likely indicative of the president's electoral fortunes.
Check out some reactions below.

I didn't know flags, expensive boats and big plastic Trump effigies could vote. https://t.co/FEycs2xP1b— Joe Hagan (@Joe Hagan)1602781297.0

They keep on talking about the boats and how it shows Trump is winning. How many people do they think own boats? https://t.co/RLIPZmeOw8— Craig (@Craig)1602781101.0
@EricTrump "The polls are wrong! Just look at all these things that only 10% of US households own!"— Chasu Nebenwuruto - Anti-Tank Nekomimi (@Chasu Nebenwuruto - Anti-Tank Nekomimi)1602779702.0
My man, there are more flags than actual people in this video. https://t.co/5R0SMvCJNZ— Peter W. Singer (@Peter W. Singer)1602782078.0
