Huffington Post: A dog rescue charity with links to Lara Trump has spent as much as $1.9 million at former President Donald Trump’s properties over the last seven years and will drop an additional quarter-million at his Mar-a-Lago country club this weekend.
Jesus. What a headline.
The Trump family steals from kids with cancer (and paid $2m fine)
They steal from dogs in shelters.
Dog Rescue Charity Linked To Lara Trump Funneling Money Into Donald Trump’s Pocket https://t.co/DjAwxlVzB7 via @Yahoo

According to a permit filed with the town of Palm Beach, Florida, Big Dog Ranch Rescue estimates it will spend $225,000 at the club where Donald Trump has taken up full-time residence since leaving the White House. All the profit from that spending winds up in his pocket.
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.

Daughter-in-law Lara Trump has been advertised as a “chairwoman” of the charity’s fundraisers over the past several years. The spending by a charity she is associated with at her family’s businesses mirrors practices at Donald Trump’s now-shuttered Trump Foundation and Eric Trump’s Eric Trump Foundation, which also spent donor money at Trump properties.
The self-dealing by the Trump Foundation was so egregious that New York state Attorney General Letitia James cited it as the reason the charity could no longer operate.

If they go deeper, the opportunism happening with animal rescue would be irresistible to the Trump brand. You basically could just run ads or videos to gain sympathy and give a place to send money. It is the same as many of the Trump moves. It is a brand built on “sand”.
Beyond that, it’s just a fantastic way to elicit bribes. Genius, they would call it.
My Dalmatians would love a shot at her!
Trump and family is nothing but A Family of Crooks.
Appreciate the story but Laura Ingraham is Cruella. She’s got the moves.
