Ruffled Feathers with Phil Vischer

Starting around 2019, Phil Vischer noticed that Eric's personality had changed. The first indicator of this was him hanging around Ann Coulter and talking about Tucker Carlson. Throughout 2020 and 2021, he and Eric would have several political debates on Twitter. Phil tried to warn him about being too political, but Eric never responded. When Phil spoke out about Eric's tweet against the COVID-19 vaccine, this resulted in him not only blocking Phil, but also his wife Lisa Vischer and his brother Robert due to their relationship. Phil felt sad that his friend went through a path that he just couldn't follow.
