The RNC Asked For Birthday Wishes For Eric Trump, And It Didn't Go As Planned

A lot of people called out the GOP for asking them to honor a private citizen.

The Republican National Committee was widely mocked after it asked people to sign a virtual birthday card for Eric Trump on Friday.

Most respondents questioned why the RNC wanted them to send well wishes to a private citizen. President Donald Trump’s second son, who turns 34 on Saturday, is not a member of the administration.

Other tweeters suggested sending him Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff’s new tell-all book about the Trump White House, as a gift.

Here’s a sampling of responses to the request:
