Eric Trump Mentions the LGBTQ+ Community on ‘Fox and Friends’ and Confuses Viewers
Eric Trump guested on Fox and Friends and spoke about Trump’s “secret voters”, making a huge turn into Trump somehow admitting he is part of the LGBTQ+ community, leaving the public with many speculations.
Eric Trump has been trending for his comment about being part of the LGBTQ+ community on Fox and Friends this past Tuesday. The host of the show, Ainsley Earhardt, questioned Eric about where the LGBTQ+ community stands when it comes to supporting his father in the presidential election, referring to the “secret voters” who rather not be publicized about voting for President Trump.
Does @EricTrump know what LGBT(Q) means?

Eric Trump’s response to Earhardt had all of our jaws drop. Eric responded saying, “the LGBT community, they are incredible. And you should see how they come out in full force for my father every single day. I’m part of that community, and we love the man.” What are we expected to think? Does Eric Trump know what it means to be part of the LGBTQ+ community?
Not to anyone’s surprise, this ran twitter wild. Everyone was questioning whether or not Eric Trump just acknowledged his sexuality in the strangest way ever.
Eric Trump saying he’s “part of the LGBT” community is like me saying I’m part of the fantasy football community. I might think I know what a “tight end” and a “wide receiver” are, but I would be sorely mistaken.

To shut down all these new assumptions of Eric Trump’s sexuality, he made a public statement; bringing raving responders back to reality. Trump cleared things up to the New York Post. “To clarify, many of our close friends are part of the LGBT community, which was the intent of my statement — the left has taken that vote for granted for a long time, and support from the gay community for my father is incredible. As to me personally, as I think you know, I am a happily married man to my wife, Lara,” Trump explained.
Most members of the LGBTQ+ community have taken his retraction on his statement as a relief considering they do not want to claim him anyway.

Throughout time, Eric Trump has brought it upon himself in becoming an easy target. Previously, Eric Trump has done a number of things that have given him no shortage of jokes.
Last October, Trump thought it would be a good idea to give an odd shout-out about Christmas, two months before the holiday; twitter had a feast. Back in May, Trump also thought it was a good idea to share his coronavirus views with the public; convinced it’ll magically go away and the country will be able to reopen.
Maybe Eric Trump is simply carrying on the family tradition of unintentionally becoming a joke.
