Election Day is finally upon us, and after over a year of exhausting, bombastic political rhetoric that has left millions of Americans fearing for their lives, Donald Trump's son Eric participated in some casual law-breaking at the ballot box when he voted for dear old dad this morning. Eric Trump clearly didn't check out the voting laws where he lived, and went right ahead and tweeted his completed New York ballot: a misdemeanor crime.

The younger Trump's tweet was removed quickly after it was posted, proving yet again that nobody in the Trump line should be permitted to manage their own social media. In the now-deleted evidence of a crime/tweet, Eric Trump wrote, "It is an incredible honor to vote for my father! He will do such a great job for the U.S.A! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain" accompanied by an American flag emoji (of course), and a photo of his completed ballot.

Evidently still wanting to have some photographic evidence of his voting day fun, Trump also retweeted (legally captured) photos of himself and his wife Lara Trump outside the polls.

Not unlike his dad, Eric Trump really should have done some more homework on current U.S. laws and general election policies before today.

Eric Trump broke the law by posting a photo of his ballot.

He also can't stay in the line which bothers me more.
So @EricTrump committed a misdemeanor by posting a photo of his filled out ballot? I hope he gets charged. #RockTheVote
reminder: posting a photo of your marked ballot or a ballot selfie is illegal in most states. it's still illegal even if you're @EricTrump 😂
