Eric Trump Deletes “Birds Of A Feather” Clinton Post — After Getting Trump-Epstein Images In Response
After Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest for allegedly helping Jeffrey Epstein secure and groom young girls to abuse, Eric Trump was quick to remind the public of connections between Ghislaine (and by extension Epstein) and former President Bill Clinton. However, he pulled the tweet down after being reminded that that are many photos showing his own father — the current president — spending time with Epstein and Maxwell.
Thursday morning, Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested in New Hampshire, and is expected to face charges for her role in the pedophile ring Jeffrey Epstein is said to have run. Epstein reportedly supplied underaged girls to a network of rich and powerful men, but he died in prison before he could face sentencing. However, his death didn’t put an end to the investigation of these crimes, and the list of associates who may be complicit.
Epstein’s associations were bipartisan, but there’s a tendency for a very partisan focus on one of two associates in particular: Bill Clinton, or Donald Trump, depending on who’s doing the focusing.
For Eric Trump, the focus was on Clinton, and he tweeted, then deleted, a photo of Ghislaine Maxwell, showing her present as the former president walks his daughter, Chelsea, down the aisle in a wedding dress. “Birds of a feather…” Trump commented.

However, Twitter users were quick to point out that if association equals guilt, Donald Trump is in the same position as Clinton.
BIRDS OF A FEATHER…boy, you stepped right in with that tweet. Your daddy was Epstein’s buddy…two of a kind! pic.twitter.com/O47fbZJECh

I noticed @EricTrump deleted his birds of a feather tweet. Guess the fact that his father has been photographed with rapists, racists, Epstein, mobsters, dictators, terrorists, people who order journalists to be killed, porn stars, and corrupt lawyers probably was a problem pic.twitter.com/nGL2YXxQQA

There are many photos of Donald Trump with Epstein, and with Ghislaine Maxwell. He’s even known to have praised the man. The Washington Post has his exact quote as, after calling Epstein a “terrific guy,” “It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
Association alone isn’t guilt. Investigations take time, and a just investigation will not be partisan. However, Eric Trump got a stark reminder that suggesting guilt by association isn’t a great idea, when his own dad was also one of those associates.
