Queerty: So Eric Trump came out on Fox News this morning and everyone’s like “Um… what?”


Well, this is awkward.

While campaigning for his father’s reelection, Eric Trump swung by Fox & Friends this morning to pander to LGBTQ voters and… come out? Wait… what?!

It all started when co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked, “There are a lot of people that might be voting for your dad that might be admitting it. So are you counting on this person? The ‘secret voter?’”

To which Eric responded, “Ainsley that person’s there, I’m telling you I see it every day. The LGBT community, they are incredible. You should see how they come out for my father, every single day. I’m part of that community and we love the man. Thank you for protecting our neighborhood, thank you for protecting our cities.”

OK, OK, so maybe Eric didn’t come out exactly. He was sloppily quoting what supposed LGBTQ Trump supporters have allegedly told him on the campaign trail, but Twitter still had a field day with his official “coming out.”

In other Eric Trump news, a New York state judge recently ordered that he must submit testimony to investigators who are looking into the Trump family’s real estate transactions by October 7. Eric has been fighting a subpoena for his testimony since May.
