It’s no secret the Trump family has issues with Mexicans. So why would Eric Trump celebrate his birthday at a Mexican restaurant?
The youngest son of Donald Trump and Ivana celebrated his 34th birthday over the weekend surrounded by family and friends at a Mexican restaurant called Guadalajara in Briarcliff Manor, New York.
Eric and friends got into the Mexican-themed birthday by wearing sombreros.

The event was captured on video by Lynne Patton, a former party planner appointed by president Trump to be the head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s New York and New Jersey office, according to The New York Post.
Lynne wrote on social media:
“#HappyBirthday to one of the greatest people I know. We love you, Eric! Amazing night with even more amazing friends. I think Lara summed it up best when she said, ’I love everyone at this table so much! And we love the ones who were missing tonight too! You know who you are! Xoxo. #FudgieTheWhale #BestBossEver #HBDEric.”
Eric’s birthday cake was Carvel’s signature Fudgie the Whale cake.
Apparently they couldn’t find an offensive sombrero for Fudgie to wear.
Reports say the Trump family indulged in nachos, guacamole, and chicken fajitas along with sangrias and margaritas.
The New York Daily News reports that, according to staff member at the restaurant, Eric frequently goes to eat at Guadalajara, and that the group had a “good time.”
The worker told the Daily News that none of the staff felt awkward serving the Trump family because “we have to take care of him as a regular customer.”
By the looks of the video, they did have a good time.

But that doesn’t mean Trump and his crew of revelers didn’t get their ass handed to them on social media.
Here’s what some people online had to say about his birthday bash.
You just cannot make this things up. Build a wall! Mexicans are rapists and bad hombres! Now, let's make a Mexican theme B-day party for @EricTrump

eric trump’s mexican theme party is the prime example of white people using our culture as an excuse to drink, eat, and have fun but turning around and being racist towards us
