Former President Donald Trump endorsed "Eric" ahead of Missouri's Senate primary on Tuesday in a Monday night statement, but he didn't specify which Eric. There is the woman-hating scandal-plagued former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, State Attorney General Eric Schmitt, and little-known Eric McElroy. No one knows which Eric Lumpy was referring to.

“There is a BIG Election in the Great State of Missouri, and we must send a MAGA Champion and True Warrior to the U.S. Senate, someone who will fight for Border Security, Election Integrity, our Military and Great Veterans, together with having powerful toughness on Crime and the Border,” Trump stated.

“We need a person who will not back down to the Radical Left Lunatics who are destroying our Country." he added. “I trust the Great People of Missouri, on this one, to make up their own minds, much as they did when gave me landside victories in the 2016 and 2020 Elections, and I am therefore proud to announce that ERIC has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

So, of course, because this isn't weird enough, two of the Erics expressed gratitude for the endorsement.

This is so weird.

Or maybe he meant this Eric.

She seems to think that Greitens is MAGA:

Kimberly Guilfoyle serves as a national co-chair for Greitens and is sticking with him amid explosive new allegations against the candidate. Greitens blackmailed his former mistress. He's that kind of a guy. His ex-wife is also accusing him of physically abusing her and their children. Greitens does appear to have violent tendencies.

Schmitt launched a lawsuit to overturn President Joe Biden's victory over Donald Trump. They're both terrible people.

NBC News reached team Trump for comment, but, unsurprisingly, they did not provide any clarity, saying only that the "endorsement speaks for itself."

And here's the kicker. According to Politico, Trump called both Erics to congratulate them on his endorsement.
