The president’s second-born son took to Twitter Thursday to gaslight American voters make the case that the opinions of a small group of well-to-do nautical types is a more accurate representation of what voters think than, you know, scientific polls and stuff.
Again for emphasis: While many boat owners support Trump’s reelection, they make up a small subset of mostly white, well-to-do Americans, and their opinions therefore may not match those of the rest of the country.
It’s a point many Twitter users tried to make to the younger Trump.
Wow… that’s like 25 boats with maybe 120 people combined on them.

pay attention to how hard they are trying to undermine the polls and fake astroturf their way to something resembling close enough to cheat and steal from the people again https://t.co/n4Vgo89GwD

all of Trump’s supporters should chain their gas-guzzling boats together in the middle of the Pacific, forming their own little tax-free island where they allow no immigrants or abortions and will definitely not get swept up and overtaken by a tropical storm https://t.co/P1uwKomZxA

It didn’t go so well after Twitter users pointed out that the maskless folks at the Trump rally might come down with the coronavirus, compared to the more socially distanced voters supporting Biden.
