For months, President Donald Trump and his allies have fought expanded voting access in the face of the pandemic that's killed over 230 thousand Americans.
One of the measures the Trump campaign has repeatedly opposed is extended voting deadlines, especially in Pennsylvania, where there were efforts to count votes up to three days after Election Day, as long as the envelope was postmarked by Election Day.
Despite this vocal opposition to expanded voting access, one of the President's sons—Eric Trump—tweeted for Minnesota to "get out and vote!!!" seven days after the election.
The tweet, which was deleted soon after Eric Trump posted it, was most likely scheduled for a week prior, Election Day.
Considering President-elect Joe Biden's defeat of Trump, which news outlets called on Saturday, the timing was inopportune to say the least. The awkwardness was only made worse with the Trump campaign's continued refusal to acknowledge the results of the 2020 election, claiming widespread voter fraud tipped the election to Biden.
People didn't hesitate to mock Eric Trump for the poorly-timed tweet.
Trump's critics often joke about Eric's intellect, and this tweet certainly didn't help.
The blunder comes only days after the Trump campaign held a Saturday press conference at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Company, which they apparently believed was a Four Seasons hotel.
