Eric Trump is being dragged on Twitter amid reports he jumped the line to get the coronavirus vaccine.
Block Club Chicago reported earlier today that Dr. Anosh Ahmed, chief operating officer for Loretto Hospital in Chicago, Illinois, shared a photo of himself with Eric and bragged about how he had just “vaccinated Eric Trump,” calling him a “cool guy.”
According to reporter Kelly Bauer:
Ahmed shared the photo with people on March 10 — the same day Loretto Hospital held a vaccination event at Trump Tower, where Ahmed owns a unit. Metadata from the photo confirms it was taken the afternoon of March 10 at or near Trump Tower.
Hospital officials said the vaccine event held at the luxury hotel Downtown was meant to benefit predominantly Black and Brown hotel workers, and later said they made a mistake by offering doses meant for West Siders to hotel employees before they were eligible.
In a statement after the story broke, Ahmed, who lives in Trump Tower, said the whole thing was meant to be a “joke” and that he didn’t actually give Eric the vaccine.
“Eric Trump happened to be in the building but we did not vaccinate him,” Ahmed claimed. “A few residents including myself did take a photo with him. My post was meant as a joke, given his anti-vaccine stance.”
Except that Eric has never publicly spoken about the coronavirus vaccine.
Another thing many people are wondering is why the hospital held its vaccine drive at Trump Tower in the first place, where 72 employees received shots. In a statement, the Chicago Department of Public Health said the city was not aware of the vaccination event and officials are investigating the matter.
Hospital President & CEO George Miller said in a statement that the hospital was “under the impression that restaurant and other frontline hospitality industry workers” were eligible for the vaccine in Chicago.
“I now understand, after subsequent conversations with the Chicago Department of Public Health, that we were mistaken,” Miller claimed.
Currently, much of the Chicago area is still in Phase 1B of its vaccination rollout, which includes people age 65 years and older, plus “frontline essential workers”, health care workers, and long-term care facility staff and residents.
Here’s what people on Twitter are saying about reports Eric skipped the line…
Eric Trump jumped the line before he was eligible and got vaccinated??
The same Eric Trump who said that, "COVID will miraculously disappear," after the election and that Democrats are using it, "as a tool" against his sociopath father??
? you Eric Trump.

Eric Trump reportedly got the COVID vaccine before he was eligible. Shocking that a guy whose family has done everything from committing treason to defrauding dogs would jump the vaccine line too.

Well, what can you expect from a guy who steals from a children’s cancer charity?

Eric Trump not only steals money from kids with cancer, he steals much needed vaccines from people suffering from cancer.

Eric Trump got the vaccine before he was even eligible. He cheated the system, cut in line and was vaccinated before those who truly needed it.
What a piece of shit he is along with the rest of the Trump Crime Family.

Donald Trump has been vaccinated, Melania Trump has been vaccinated, Eric Trump has been vaccinated……. 47% of Republicans refuse to get vaccinated. ?????

Totally not surprised that Eric trump, the guy who stole charity money for kids with cancer, would jump the line for a vaccine he wasn't eligible for.
What a total scumbag.

A chip off the old racist block. Stealing vaccines from ppl of color for his white privileged a$$. So happy his KKK leader daddy is out of office.
Not surprised he’d get one [despite the Doctor’s claim it was a ‘joke’].
I live in CO and have been eligible to get the vaccine since March 5th [having 2 serious medical conditions that qualify me under CO’s criteria] but have been unable to find any providers that I can schedule with. I’ve been calling the CO Vaccination Hotline every other day and have signed up with every Healthcare Center [and other vaccine providers] listed in all the vaccination resources and as yet to have a follow-up with any of them to get scheduled.
YET, I have gathered over 20 names of people who DO NOT met the criteria here in CO [including the dates. locations and some details] who managed to get the vaccination. Apparently illegally because they where given special treatment. Some using connections, some using money under the table and some just outright bullying providers to make them exceptions.
All this hype by the President and our Governor here in CO flies in the face of the reality that the ‘Elites’ and ‘Influential’ can and do circumvent whatever BS ‘protocols’ are put in place, whether Democrat or Republican.
I’m waiting to play my cards at the right time with reputable media outlets for maximum impact to cause the maximum amount of damage to the people involved but I recognize that the time and impact might never come.
If I live long enough.
@WSnyder, I hope you can get vaccinated very soon.
Why don’t they inject him and his family with hydroxychloroquinine instead? Apprently, that was to be the holy grail of the vaccines, according to daddy dearest…..or how about they all swallow Clorox whilst shoving light bulbs up their arses…..!
A high-ranking military general in Spain jumped the vaccine line and was exposed. He had to resign from the job he had, and now has been posted to the Spanish embassy in Washington (as a kind of punishment/banishment). With Eric, I think he just gets away with it. Alas, the rich get richer.
This is pretty bad, but at least he didn’t pretend to be an Uber eats driver and suggest others do the same. But that guy was gay so he gets a free pass.
he looks inbred.
If you are calling eric trump “a cool guy” you have already made yourself look like an idiot. He is a mouth breathing son of a racist. He isn’t even a spare he’s a return.
Let’s be honest: Donald Trump is not a sociopath (has a conscience) – he’s a psychopath (doesn’t).
That whole family (Trumps) disgust me,
They are animals. “Lord forgive me” I am a southern man but this family abused our nation well, they must pay lord. ?,
“it was a joke”
What a f’ing liar.
A disingenuous liar. The kind where they don’t even care if you know they are lying.
There is no vaccine for stupidity so he’s still not covered.
He looks like a lamprey. Hideous.
Why does Eric tRump”s mouth always looks like an a**hole with teeth?
Just another example of the elite jumping line and I’ll bet Trump wasn’t the only elite in the building to receive a vaccine. There should be stiff penalties for these “OOPs” moments made by highly educated and trained medical personnel and other elites because this could mean death to someone who didn’t receive the vaccine. Every dose of vaccine these lowlifes break line for is a dose that could be saving someone’s parents or grandparents. But as usual, they will get a hand slap at the most and still get away with being protected from Covid way before their turn while someone who is really eligible may lose their life by missing his dose. At just over 60 myself, I’m anxious to receive the vaccine but am still one group away from eligibility yet right on the line of those considered most vulnerable. All I can say is I believe in Karma. ET will get his just rewards soon enough.
