Eric Trump deletes his ‘birds of a feather’ tweet with a photo of Ghislaine Maxwell at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding after Twitter users trolled him with pictures of his father with Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘pimp’
- Eric Trump tweeted the photo on Thursday saying, ‘Birds of a feather’
- Ghislaine Maxwell was a guest at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding in 2010
- Eric was immediately trolled by Twitter users who replied with photos of his father posing alongside Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell over the years
Eric Trump has quietly deleted his tweet that included a photo of Ghislaine Maxwell at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, saying ‘birds of a feather’, after Twitter users trolled him by sharing pictures of his father with the British socialite.
The president’s son shared the photo on Thursday in an apparent attempt to smear the Clintons for their ties to Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged ‘madam’ who was arrested and charged by the FBI earlier on Thursday.
The now-infamous photo showed Maxwell, 58, among a sea of guests at Chelsea’s 2010 wedding in upstate New York, as former president Bill Clinton walks his daughter down the aisle.
The tweet, however, blew up in Eric’s face, as users were quick to reply with old pictures of his own father rubbing elbows with Epstein and Maxwell over the years.

Twitter users immediately replied with photos of Trump posing alongside billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged ‘pimp’ Ghislaine Maxwell, over the years
Most of the pictures shared by users were taken in the early 2000s, showing the president posing with Epstein and Maxwell alongside wife Melania at various events.
The 36-year-old has now deleted the post.
‘Does the president’s son not know that there are photos of Donald Trump with Maxwell?’ MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin replied.
‘You really are the dumb one, aren’t you?’ said another of the president’s thirdborn child.
Others replied with pictures of Trump and Epstein and completing the popular phrase tweeted out by Eric, adding: ‘flock together.’
‘Are you sure you wanna go down this road?’ another user quipped.
Eric, 36, did not immediately respond to any of the replies.
Maxwell was arrested in Bradford, New Hampshire on Thursday morning, months after she disappeared from the public eye following Epstein’s 2019 arrest.
The British socialite is facing a string of criminal charges for allegedly procuring underage girls for billionaire pedophile Epstein between 1994 and 1997.
Eric, the president’s third-born child, was quickly made aware his tweet had been ill-conceived
Trump had been photographed alongside Maxwell at various events in the early 2000s
Epstein, who killed himself in prison last July, was known to have a powerful network of contacts and friends, many of whom were millionaires, businessmen and politicians.
He had been photographed with Prince Andrew over the years and was said to have a close ties with Bill and Hillary Clinton.
The disgraced financier became friends with Trump after meeting at his Mar-a-Lago club in the 90s, but the two eventually ‘fell out’ years later, according to the president.
