Eric Trump boasts he’s a ‘Jeopardy’ answer, Twitter hands him his hat

It’s pretty exciting to be famous enough to be an answer on “Jeopardy,” and Eric Trump couldn’t resist sharing the moment with his Twitter followers.

“Always fun being a #jeopardy question. ????: Who is “brother in law.” ????????????,” he shared on Wednesday night with a screenshot of the answer “Eric Trump to Jared Kushner” from the long-running gameshow hosted by Alex Trebek.

Yeah, he left himself wide open. And Roast Twitter came out in droves to make the president’s son — who has been managing the Trump Organization with his brother, Donald Trump Jr., since their father took office — the brunt of their jokes. Many of them focused on his and Kushner’s reported ties to Russia.

Here is a sampling of choice responses:

Of course, they all may be taking a cue from “Saturday Night Live,” which routinely skewers the eldest Trump brothers — and Kushner — on the show.

You’d think Eric would have learned by now.
