The Grift is Strong in These Ones

It turns out that the Trump family tradition of exploiting charities for personal gains even extends to rescue dogs. 

In this case, it's Eric's wife Lara, who has diverted millions of dollars to the Trump organization from Big Dog Ranch Rewsuc Rescue.

It's pretty cold to steal from rescue dogs.

On the bright side, it probably means that her campaign for US Senate is dead before it even started:

A dog rescue charity that has links to Lara Trump, the former president’s daughter-in-law, has spent almost $2m at Trump properties in the last seven years, according to US media reports.

While other companies and groups have distanced themselves from the Trumps since the 6 January attack on the capital, the Florida-based Big Dog Ranch Rescue is expected to spend another $225,000 at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago country club for an event this weekend, according to a permit filed with the town of Palm Beach, which was reported by HuffPost.


HuffPost reported that Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filings show that the charity has spent as much as $1,883,160 on fundraising costs for events at Mar-a-Lago and a nearby Trump golf course since 2014. Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump, has been a chairwoman for charity events since 2018.

Donald Trump’s Trump Foundation, which was dissolved in 2019, and Eric Trump’s Eric Trump Foundation are known to have used money from donors for events and other expenses at Trump properties. Donald Trump admitted in court documents that he used charity money to buy a portrait of himself.
They really are a repulsive lot, aren't they?
