Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, found herself at the center of controversy once again as her latest claim about her father-in-law faced swift fact-checking and mockery on Twitter.

During an appearance on Newsmax, Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump, proudly touted special prosecutor John Durham's report, which criticized the FBI's handling of the Russia investigation.

In her statement, she confidently asserted everything her father-in-law has ever said has "come true":

"How many times has what he said actually come true? Pretty much everything he ever talked about — and, by the way, he was mocked for saying — have all come true."

However, Lara Trump's bold assertion did not go unchallenged.

Critics of former President Trump were quick to point out that Lara Trump's claim was far from accurate. They highlighted the stark contrast between the former president's grandiose promises and the reality of the situation.

For instance, Donald Trump had previously claimed that John Durham's investigation would uncover "the crime of the century." However, the report, while highlighting concerns with the FBI's actions, did not recommend new charges or significant policy changes.

Lara Trump's statement also drew attention to her father-in-law's well-documented track record of falsehoods. Throughout his tenure as president, Donald Trump was found to have made over 30,000 false or misleading claims, as reported by The Washington Post.

This extensive history of misinformation further undermined Lara Trump's assertion that "pretty much everything he ever talked about" had come true.

Many have criticized her and her father-in-law as a result while pointing out many of his past lies.

The swift fact-checking and subsequent mockery on social media served as a reminder of the polarizing nature of the Trump family's statements and the public's increasing demand for accountability and accuracy in political discourse.

It also highlighted the importance of critically evaluating claims made by public figures, regardless of their prominence or familial ties.
