Eric Trump’s Wife Just Called Women’s March Protesters ‘Dumb’ — Big Mistake
Lara Trump stunningly told Fox News her opinion of women who marched in the 2018 Women’s March. She believes they are too dumb to even know WHY they are anti-Trump. Yes, TOO DUMB.
LARA TRUMP IS NO FEMINIST
The weekend following President Donald Trump’s 2017 inauguration saw Women’s March protest held in 680 United States locations. Protests were also held in 137 locations around the world. Washington, DC hosted the largest, with more than 500,000 attendees.
The stated goal of the 2017 marches was for people to “stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.” Organizers wanted to remind the incoming President, and legislators, that “women’s rights are human rights.”
Political scientists declared it the largest day of protests in United States history.
The 2018 Women’s Marches, the attendees of which Lara Trump addressed, took place this past weekend. The 2018 theme was , “Look Back, March Forward.”
When the marches ended, it was time for Lara Trump, the wife of President Trump’s son Eric, to offer her insights on Fox & Friends.

Her full remark, too long to fit in a tweet, was:
“But the reality is, when it comes to the left, when it comes to Democrats, they are okay with all women as long as you have their same opinion on things. And it’s very evident here. And, you know, I was so disappointed to see the Women’s March wasn’t just about women. It was more of a hateful, anti-Trump protest, which I think is really sad because this president has done so much for women. He has a woman as the head of the Department of Homeland Security, Education. He had the first woman run a successful presidential campaign, with Kellyanne [Conway]. Women’s unemployment is at a 17-year low right now. And, yet, these women out there are so anti-Trump. And I don’t even think they know why. They just think that’s the thing to do.”
Video of the interview is found here.
Maybe this insult will serve as a wake-up call for women? Of course, all the times Donald Trump said bad things about women did not cost him many votes last election. For example, a female Trump voter described her 2016 ballot this way:
“His degrading language toward women bothers me, and his views on global warming are a problem for me. I do not 100 percent love Trump, but I am convinced he can lead this nation. I was part of the silent majority.”
Maybe Lara was just following the lead of her husband and father in law? She is, after all, in their employ as a mouthpiece. Lara Trump hosts Real News Update, more commonly referred to as Trump TV. The “news” program, filmed at Trump Tower and aired on Facebook, consists of little more than campaign propaganda for the Donald Trump 2020 Presidential campaign. Eric trump currently runs the Trump Organization with his brother Donald Jr. after their father “stepped away” from day to day operations.
The Washington Post described Real News Update this way:
It is real spin, at best. And it feels a lot like real propaganda — or state TV.
Of course it does. At least on the right, America moves farther from objective and independent journalism every day.
The President’s approval rating among white women with college degrees has slipped from the 44% who voted for him in 2016, to 40% last April, to 27% now. Trump won 61% of the vote from white women without a college degree in 2016, support that has plunged to 43% now, with only 29% strongly approving. More than 90% of black women voted against Trump when he faced Hillary Clinton, and the President has done little to mend that rift.
Not that the Trumps seem to understand nor care about the consequences of constantly making enemies of women.
President Trump issued this tweet about the 2018 Women’s March, apparently ignoring that the marches were held to target HIM and HIS policies?
Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!

Eric Trump added this statement (boosted by Fox News, of course):

Donald and Eric Trump believe the United States is a far BETTER place for women now that the first year of the Trump presidency is in the books. Lara Trump believes women are DUMB if they disagree with her men. Twitter, of course, pounced:
There you go, something for us all to cling to in our darkest days. Most of us were smart enough NOT to marry a Trump. :-D.

I believe they are all in for quite a surprise come November. I wonder if Real News Update and Fox News will air the results, or will they show reruns of Trump’s 2016 victory instead?
