Lara Trump, former campaign adviser and current daughter-in-law to former President Donald Trump—she's married to his son Eric—joined in the Halloween fun this year by dressing up as self-described "MAGA Barbie," a look that earned her considerable mockery online.
She shared her 2023 Halloween costume on Instagram, where she could be seen donning a MAGA hat and a hot pink bodysuit.
Her caption—which highlighted the costumes worn by her children—included an attack against New York Attorney General Letitia James, whom she referred to as "blood-thirsty" and "deranged" because her husband had to miss the Halloween festivities due to having to testify in a case centered around her father-in-law's financial crimes.
You can see her costume below.
She also shared a video of herself that includes a snippet of a remix of Aqua's song "Barbie Girl."
The costume did not go over well with her critics.
Lara Trump's Halloween post came amid the ongoing $250 million lawsuit filed by Attorney General James involving Trump and his two eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric. The lawsuit alleges fraudulent practices related to the inflation of property values for insurance and loans, putting the future of the Trump Organization at risk.
Don Jr. and Eric Trump, who have been heavily involved in the Trump Organization, have testified in the civil fraud case. This trial is a significant legal challenge for the Trump family, as it could have far-reaching implications for the future of their business ventures.
Attorneys presented evidence during the trial indicating that Donald Trump Jr. had signed a letter to an accounting firm, affirming the accuracy of financial documents, even after being alerted to discrepancies by Forbes magazine. He referred to this letter as a "protective" measure.
Eric Trump, who attempted to shift blame to the company's external accountants for inaccuracies, became visibly agitated when questioned about his knowledge of the organization's annual financial statements. He passionately argued that, given the Trump Organization's considerable size and real estate operations, having such statements was self-evident.
He continued to assert that he had no recollection of these statements from over a decade ago, despite indications suggesting his involvement in discussions about them.
