Eric Trump’s wife, Lara, who is a campaign advisor for Donald Trump, shared a video on her Twitter page. In the video, she shows her dog tearing up a doll of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in front of her two small children.
Lara Trump shot the video herself as she sat on the floor recording her beagle aggressively attacking the doll. She also includes her children two-year-old Luke and 10-month-old Carolina in the video.
Towards the end of the video, Lara takes the doll from her dog and shows the resemblance to, Nancy Pelosi. The doll was dressed in a red pantsuit with an American flag pin. The face on the doll was “distorted. ” When she shared the video on Twitter she wrote, “Nancy is a big hit at our house.”
The video kicks off with Trump’s dog, Ben, aggressively attacking the doll as 10-month-old Carolina laughs. At one point, Lara Trump takes the doll and asks her son, “Hey, Luke, what’s the doll called that Ben has?” as she focuses the camera on the young boy. Luke gives the wrong answer, so she asks him again, “No what’s Ben’s toy called? What do we call this toy?” the boy then answers “Nancy.”
“Nancy, that’s right,” Lara said while laughing as she hands the doll back to the dog.

Many Twitter users criticized Trump for her behavior. “She’s someone’s grandmother. You should be teaching your children to respect their elders and differing opinions. Apple doesn’t fall far.”
Another person wrote, “That is disgusting behavior to teach a child. Thank goodness he will go to private school and this public-school teacher will not have to teach him manners and respect for other human beings. Things that vouchers can’t buy. #publicschoolproud.”
“What could go wrong with teaching young children to be disrespectful?” another user commented.
Someone else wrote, “I always knew @LaraLeaTrump was a horrible person. Now we know she is a horrible mother. Not surprising!”
Mary Trump mentions Lara Trump briefly in her new tell-all book about the Trump family. Mary says that Donald Trump at one point in 2017 stated, “Lara, there. I barely even knew who the f**k she was, honestly, but then she gave a great speech during the campaign in Georgia supporting me.”
