Lara Trump - daughter-in-law of Donald - has allegedly been funnelling money from dog rescue charities into her father-in-law’s businesses, and is being compared to Cruella de Vil.
According to The Huffington Post, several documents reveal that Big Dog Ranch Rescue - the charity linked with Lara Trump - has spent $1.9 million at the former president’s properties, including an enormous $225,000 at Mar-A-Lago this weekend.
It said: “Internal Revenue Service filings show that the group has spent as much as $1,883,160 on fundraising costs at Mar-a-Lago and Trump’s golf course 18 miles north in Jupiter starting in 2014. Lara Trump, the wife of Eric Trump, started being listed as a chairwoman for charity events in 2018, and the group’s president, Lauren Simmons, visited the White House in 2019 for the signing of a bill addressing animal cruelty.”
Simmons has defended associating herself with the Trumps, and perhaps unsurprisingly helped spread misinformation about the fraud in the 2020 election.
When it was uncovered that a dog charity linked with her was spending such vast sums at her father-in-law’s properties, social media users compared her to the infamous 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella De Vil, for similarly enacting a canine scam.
