On Wednesday evening, Eric Trump saw his name on a Jeopardy! clue and earnestly shared a photo of it on Twitter. He wrote out the question to the answer “Eric Trump to Jared Kushner” in the caption: “Who is ‘brother in law.” (Followed by an American flag and fist bump emojis.) But Twitter users responded with more creative answers.

Robert Dimitri, a Los Angeles-based management and production assistant who guessed the correct question on the show, addressed Eric Trump’s tweet with a scorching reply. “Hi! I’m the one who answered this correctly on the show. Yes, you & your family are famous enough to appear as clues on Jeopardy!. I expect your father will make more appearances in the future under the categories “Political Embarrassments” & “Self-Promoting, Lying Jackasses,” he said.
