Eric Trump’s attempted Labor Day attack on Democratic 2020 nominee Joe Biden backfired as critics on Twitter reminded President Donald Trump’s son of his father’s failings.

“Everything this guy does is low energy and awkward…” Eric Trump captioned a photo of a Biden event in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on Monday.

Everyone in the picture was wearing face masks and following social distancing measures aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus.

Eric Trump’s detractors pointed out the stark contrast between the image and those of campaign rallies his father has held during the pandemic, where many supporters have not worn masks or socially distanced.

Public health experts believe the president’s June rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, “more than likely” contributed to a surge in COVID-19 cases in the area.

The president has also repeatedly downplayed the risk posed by the coronavirus and sent mixed messages about the need for face masks.

The pandemic has killed at least 190,000 people in the United States and nearly 900,000 people worldwide.

You mislabeled accountable and authentic, @EricTrump; not that I'd expect the son of @realDonaldTrump to be able to identify and understand either of those concepts as your father has not practiced either a single day of his adult life. https://t.co/oOK18MB0Su

The dumbest of all the Trumps, tweets that social distancing and mask wearing is low energy and awkward. We're in the middle of pandemic, Eric. He's following the science, caring about his fellow Americans and setting an example. You're a dad, since yours sucks, follow Joe. https://t.co/wavyPMb0bi

Well, I'm convinced. That is an excellent reason to keep an ignorant, hateful fascist in the White House! https://t.co/XOlBMpoRlC

Following science may be boring but he hasn't killed 190,000 Americans and counting… https://t.co/vyxEjvpdCN

The complete lack of self-awareness from the dumbest Trump brother never ceases to amaze me. https://t.co/AJW1iGwVXS

Just because he doesn't yell and act like a toddler? This is how grown up do things https://t.co/c235I8nOi2

You mean he's not willing to endanger 1000s of people with an in-person rally? https://t.co/5GZkotGfH8

Everything this guy does is dumb energy and ridiculous. https://t.co/AmITNYEQyd

Good grief. The Trump's are so into superficial they have no understanding of authentic or down to earth or real relationships and communications. They mock people who have feelings, genuinely listen or respect others. That's sad. https://t.co/g4KY2LjTZi

Hey Guess what? It’s called acting like an actual regular person and not a game show host! https://t.co/8Rgf4z3Shj

I'll take "alleged low energy" any day over a "big mouth, hyper, arrogant, lying fool" anyday! https://t.co/tyAMaqYU66
