Lara Trump's 'FJB' clutch goes viral as Eric laughs over Biden gas station sticker
Eric and Lara Trump made waves on social media after the Trump scion shared a video showing his wife's clutch purse emblazoned with 'FJB' -- short for 'F*** Joe Biden' -- a crude insult directed at the President that has gone viral in the past year.
Eric, 38, shared the clip on Instagram Friday, February 11, showing a meme sticker that blamed Biden for soaring prices at the gas pump at a Marathon station. The humorous sticker shows an image of Biden pointing to the amount total on the pump screen with the caption "I did that" -- amid growing criticism his administration has faced over rising inflation rates and the devaluing US dollar.

Eric Trump says there's never been a 'more beloved political figure' than his dad: 'He's a father to America'
The video shared by the son of former President Donald J Trump featured rapper Loza Alexander's hit number 'Let's Go Brandon' as it showed Lara Trump sitting in the passenger seat shaking her head. Beside her was a small clutch purse that couldn't be missed as it was decorated with anti-Biden slogan 'FJB' in what appeared to be crystals or rhinestones. The purse was a hit on social media.
"I need that clutch #FJB," one fan wrote on Instagram.
"Omg I need that case!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂," another reacted.
"This family is ruthless and I love it," another comment read.
It's unclear when or which pump the video was recorded at. The couple notably splurged $3.2 million on a mansion in Jupiter, Florida, last year. The property is within the exclusive gated community of Trump National Golf Club, which is adjacent to another gated community where Donald Trump Jr lives with his girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle.
It's worth noting that Biden has faced growing criticism from across the political aisle over inflation and gas prices that show no signs of decreasing, especially after oil prices spiked over tensions between Ukraine and Russia this week.
"It’s almost less expensive to fly rather than drive," one Instagram user commented on Eric Trump's video post.
"Them broke liberals wanna say it was Trump's fault😂," another wrote.
"I’ve got the same truck - the pain at the pump is real!" someone else added.
"I voted for your dad twice, he needs to come back now!!" another chimed in, referencing former President Trump.
Gas prices are surging to the highest levels in 8 years, according to AAA. pic.twitter.com/XeNMqmgs5P— TODAY (@TODAYshow) February 10, 2022
New data released by the AAA Gas Price Index on Thursday showed that gas prices were up a staggering 40 percent in January from a year ago, after rising 2.5 percent since December. The national average price of regular unleaded gas was at $3.482 as of Saturday. Meanwhile, there are concerns that Russia will react to potential Western sanctions by withholding crude oil from the already struggling global market. The prospect could possibly raise gas prices even higher.
"This shows how events on the other side of the globe can have a noticeable impact right here in the U.S," AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross said in a statement this week. "And unfortunately for drivers, they are reminded of this by higher prices at the pump," he added. The Labor Department revealed on Thursday that the year-on-year inflation had hit 7.5 percent in January, its highest level since 1982, the Daily Mail reported.
