Lara Trump Furious at Song Mocking Her Singing Career

Lara Trump has criticized the Democratic National Committee after it released an AI-generated track mocking her singing career following her recent election as co-chair of the Republican National Committee.

Lara Trump—the wife of Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump—has drawn attention for her singing efforts over the past several months. On September 29, the former TV producer released a cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 1989 song “I Won’t Back Down.”

Following the track’s release, Lara Trump alleged that music-streaming platforms had shadow-banned the song—that is, made it almost impossible to find—because of her family name. Her choice to use the song was dubbed a “cheap move” on social media because of the cease-and-desist letter Petty’s family had sent the former president after he used the track at a campaign rally in 2020.

Controversy around the song grew in November when Lara Trump released an acoustic cover of it.

On March 28, Lara Trump took to social media to announce her latest single, “Anything Is Possible.” The following day, the DNC released an AI-generated track titled “Party’s Fallin’ Down.”

“We like our song better, @LaraLeaTrump,” the X account @DNCWarRoom posted in response to the announcement of Lara Trump’s new track. The post included a snippet of the DNC track.

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison wrote on the social media platform: “Folks, the song of the summer has come early this year! The @DNCWarRoom just released our first single, ‘Party’s Fallin’ Down,’ to celebrate Lara Trump focusing more on her music career than salvaging the sinking RNC.”

The track’s chorus includes the lyrics “Oh Lara, Lara, what have you done? / The party’s fallin’ down, it’s no longer fun / Oh Lara, Lara, can’t you see? / Your leadership’s sinking Trump’s GOP.”

In an appearance on Fox News’ Hannity, Lara Trump criticized the DNC for “putting their focus on an AI-generated song to somehow mock me.” She added that the song “wasn’t even funny.”

Newsweek has contacted representatives of the RNC and the DNC for comment via website request form.

In a statement, Harrison said of the single: “Lara Trump’s ‘music career’ is just like her time at the RNC so far: embarrassing, unserious, and a waste of money.

“But we can appreciate the effort—and wanted to help Lara tell her own story about how she and her fellow MAGA extremists at the RNC are broke and losing election after election. That’s why we’re excited to release our very first single, ‘Party’s Fallin’ Down,’ a summer party anthem about how the RNC is falling apart under Lara Trump and the rest of the new ultra-MAGA team.”

“We didn’t put as much time and money into making our song since we’re busy with our record-breaking fundraising and supporting Democrats up and down the ballot, but Lara is by all means welcome to keep making music instead of trying to win elections,” Harrison’s statement concluded.

In March, Lara Trump was elected co-chair of the RNC by a unanimous vote after Donald Trump endorsed her for the role.

That same month, she faced criticism from Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former Donald Trump aide, over her appearance on Prime Time With Alex Stein, in which the host theatrically abused a baby doll.

In the show, a host asked Lara Trump to hold a baby and sign an autograph. After the segment, Stein—a right-wing commentator known for disrupting local government meetings and confronting politicians in public—produced a baby doll and punted it off-screen, claiming frustration with the other host for bringing babies on the set. Stein later subjected the doll to further abuse, including hitting it on the head with his shoe.

Griffin, who regularly shares her thoughts and criticism of Donald Trump in her role as a co-host of ABC’s The View and as a political commentator, weighed in with her thoughts on the clip, which was circulated on X.

“This is what the new RNC leadership is up to: sitting for an interview with the sexist fringe dude who harassed female Nikki Haley staffers,” Griffin wrote on X. “When will the @GOP realize that millions of lifelong Republicans don’t want to be associated w/the fringe, crazy nonsense it’s amplifying?”

In February, Stein, a BlazeTV personality, sparked a backlash when he approached some of Haley’s female staff members on camera outside an event in Dallas and called them “hoes.” He also asked for information regarding their purported accounts on OnlyFans, a subscription platform that is popular among sex workers. Stein later issued a public apology to the staffers via his show.

Lara Trump recently pledged that she would use her new position with the RNC to ensure that all the organization’s funds went to helping reelect her father-in-law in November. The statement led to concerns that funds would be used for Donald Trump’s legal bills and that down-ballot Republican candidates would suffer.
