Hurricane "Ian" is raging in the USA and has already claimed dozens of lives. Houses were destroyed and entire regions cut off from the power supply. But Lara Trump's children are supposed to play outside during the storm.
The daughter-in-law of ex-US President Donald Trump writes on Instagram: "And here is my daughter having fun in the rain. Curtain up for crazy people". The picture shows three-year-old Carolina in a pink spaghetti strap top soaking wet in the rain. Some followers don't find this funny. In the comments there are clearly critical comments, such as: "How terrible" or "poor child". But supporters are also shown under the post. "A little rain can't hurt," is the tenor.
But Lara Trump even thinks it's funny and writes about the video: "We're doing something for personal development here." Here were more horrified comments: "Can't you see your child is crying?" or "Looks like child abuse". One user comments laconically: "He will still need the excavator to fill sandbags against the coming flood". Trump left the critical comments uncommented.
Lara Trump used to work as a TV presenter and was later a campaign advisor to ex-US President Donald Trump. The 39-year-old has been married to Eric Trump, son of Donald Trump, since 2014. The couple have two children together.
