President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump shared a video on Twitter that quickly generated a lot of buzz. The clip that she posted on Thursday evening showed her dog using a doll of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as a toy to toss around and Lara seemed fairly delighted with the situation.
Lara and her husband, Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump, have two children together. Both Luke, 2, and Carolina, 10 months, were in the clip along with the family’s dog, Ben.
The clip first showed Ben with a doll in his mouth, as well as was tossing it around and chewing on it. Soon, Lara could be heard asking Luke what the toy was called, and the little boy responded “Nancy.”
Lara held the doll close to the camera to show that it was, indeed, an image of Speaker Pelosi. In her caption, she joked about how she was a big hit in their home.
The dog’s chew toy appeared to be one available online that is an exaggerated version of Nancy dressed in a red pantsuit.
Over the course of about 20 hours, Lara’s video had been watched almost 345,000 times. It was liked more than 23,000 times and shared by almost 6,000 people.

The post also sparked a flurry of nearly 2,000 comments, and it appeared that there were significantly more negative replies than positive ones.
“That is disgusting behavior to teach a child,” one person responded via Twitter.
“She’s someone’s grandmother. You should be teaching your children to respect their elders and differing opinions. Apple doesn’t fall far,” another critic tweeted.
“You are a family member of the president of the United States. This behavior is repugnant… You can have all the money in the world, but you’re still just common grifters,” someone detailed.
A few people asked where they could get one of these toys for their own homes and others noted that they have one at their house and that their pups love them as well.
“That’s what I’m talking about! Beautiful family and your children are beautiful! Love and prayers for you and your family!” a fan of Lara’s said.
This is not the first time that Lara has generated controversy after sharing by taking shots at her family’s political adversaries. In January, she mocked the stutter of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, and it did not take long for her to get a lot of pushback on it.
