This Thanksgiving, the Trumps would apparently like us all to think they’re just hardworking public servants — or something. That’s not going to happen, but that doesn’t mean they’re not going to try anyway. As if anyone outside his father’s most rabid supporters woke up this Thanksgiving and wondered what he was doing, Eric Trump posted a Thanksgiving message on Twitter this Thursday in between his political rants and ads for the family business.
‘From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving! Let’s never forget that we live in the greatest country in the world! Have an awesome day!’

The Trumps have long mostly abandoned even the pretense of keeping their family business and Donald Sr.’s (and Ivanka’s) work in the White House separate at this point.
For what it’s worth, his dad didn’t even seemingly try to come up with his own, original, thoughtful Thanksgiving message before Eric posted. He simply tweeted Happy Thanksgiving in all caps. What inspirational leadership (not). The day before, he attracted a lot of attention when he posted an image that had been photoshopped to include his own head on the body of Rocky Balboa from the Rocky movie franchise. He didn’t even include a caption with that post — we were simply left to bask in the glow of his gross egotism.
Even Hillary Clinton paid more attention to the holiday than the Trumps. In her own Twitter message, she wrote about the inspirational qualities of America.
