Donald Trump’s lack of common sense — or any sense for that matter — seems to have definitely rubbed off on his son Eric. Eager to help Daddy, Eric jumped on the #BasketOfDeplorables bandwagon first thing Saturday morning, tweeting a picture of the head Oompa Loompa’s speech in Pensacola Friday night, showing just how many people Hillary Clinton insulted when she said Trump supporters were assholes:

There’s just one problem, little Loompa. See that flag down there in the corner? That’s not a Florida flag, is it? My goodness. It looks like they may have moved Pensacola to Texas for the night.
Yes, he really is that stupid. The picture is of a Trump rally, and a big one, but it’s clearly being held at the Dallas Maverick’s arena. It didn’t take long for the Twittersphere to catch on and respond:
The photo in your tweet about Deplorable Dad’s Pensacola speech shows the Dallas Mavs’ arena
You’re dumber than he is.

@EricTrump Not Florida. Not last night. If you must lie to make your point, it might not be worth making.

So…Why the lie? Is he really so desperate for his tweet to be effective that he decided to go with a larger crowd or is he just as dumb as his father, not thinking twice or checking his sources before he hits the tweet button?
It could be either answer and it would still be hilarious. Whether on purpose or by ineptitude, the Trump family continues to show just how stupid they actually are.
