So, this actually happened:

That’s the official GOP Twitter account asking Americans to wish a happy birthday Eric Trump because he’s the President’s son.
One Twitter user said:
How is this normal? He's got no official role of any kind in government–or even in the @GOP. Is this a poke in "liberal" eyes, or the ongoing codification of a "royal presidency"?

Here’s what it is:
Don’t remember @GOP asking us to do this for the Bush girls. Certainly don’t begrudge the guy enjoying his birthday but This. Is. Bizarre.

A ruling party statement that the public should prepare well wishes for the second son of the leader is the kind of communication one would expect from an eccentric family dictatorship not a modern democracy.

Hey GOP. It's my daughter's birthday. If you can ask us to sign a birthday card for a private citizen, you can do the same for her too.

My sister in law’s bday is next week, and she’s a Republican…can you coordinate similarly for her?
