Eric Trump Wore A Sombrero At His Birthday Dinner, Ate 'Fudgie The Whale' Cake

Donald Trump once said that "the worst elements in Mexico are being pushed into the United States by the Mexican government" — but those feelings don't seem to extend to cuisine. Then-candidate Trump famously tweeted a picture of himself with a taco bowl as an example of his cultural sophistication, and his son Eric seems to share a similarly tone-deaf appreciation — he recently celebrated his 34th birthday at a Mexican restaurant while sporting a sombrero.

A video posted to Facebook by Lynne Patton — a former event planner who was controversially appointed by the Trump administration to direct the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Region II — shows the 34-year-old Eric wearing a broad-brimmed black hat while blowing out candles atop a "Fudgie the Whale" cake made by Carvel, a popular dessert chain in the tri-state area.

"#HappyBirthday to one of the greatest people I know. We love you, Eric! Amazing night with even more amazing friends," Patton wrote on Facebook. "I think Lara summed it up best when she said, 'I love everyone at this table so much!' (heart emoji) And we love the ones who were missing tonight too! You know who you are! Xoxo. #FudgieTheWhale #BestBossEver #HBDEric."

The birthday dinner was held at Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant in Briarcliff Manor, New York. Eric's wife, Lara, and his brother, Donald Trump Jr., were also in attendance.
