ICYMI, Eric Trump Appeared to Steal Lemonade in a Water Cup

Sir, did you pay for that? A photo of Donald Trump‘s son Eric Trump posing with lemonade in a free water cup at an In-N-Out restaurant went viral on social media last week — and we still can’t get enough of it.

Eric, 32, and his wife, Lara Trump, visited the fast food chain’s Las Vegas location on Wednesday, October 19, following the third and final presidential debate. She shared an Instagram photo from their late night outing, writing, “How do you celebrate after a big @realdonaldtrump win?! #InNOut #teamtrump #MAGA.”

The real estate scion also posed for a picture with a fan named Grant, whose sharp-eyed friend David Winkelman (who goes by Kush Vonnegut on Twitter) shared it on social media with a shocking observation. “This is a photo of my homey grant with trumps kid at in-n-out & trumps kid is drinking lemonade outta the free water cup…” Vonnegut captioned the Twitter picture.

The hilarious tweet implying Eric helped himself to the drink without paying has since gone viral, garnering more than 16,000 retweets and 29,000 likes.

In-N-Out’s corporate office confirmed to BuzzFeed that the clear, plastic cups at their restaurant — which Eric was visibly holding off to the side — are for free water only. Fountain drinks, including sodas and lemonade, are served in white cups designed with the In-N-Out logo.

Winkelman also spoke to BuzzFeed, saying, “I posted [the photo] because its funny to me and seemed harmless. But at this point in the campaign trail, being well aware of our actions as Americans and children of a presidential candidate is becoming more important than ever.”

He added, “My friend [Grant] is a Trump supporter and was happy to have this photo. He says Eric seemed like a down to earth guy and now this photo my friend was happy about has become ammo in the anti-Trump machine.”
