This Wednesday, President Trump's second son, Eric Trump, tried to gin up some enthusiasm for his dad, who is currently on a crusade to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

It's worth noting that Eric's call for Trumpland to praise his dad came on the same day the U.S. set a new record for coronavirus deaths.

As one could imagine, the tweet was great fodder for Trump's critics.
