Ms Ellis shared a story from PEOPLE Magazine citing anonymous sources that claimed Ms Lake is trying to convince Donald Trump to make her his running mate for his 2024 presidential run.

Those sources also said that Ms Lake was spending significant time at Mr Trump's Florida resort.

The former Trump attorney shared her thoughts about the alleged developments, comparing the failed Republican candidate to "a bum college dropout.".

Sources told PEOPLE that Ms Lake "practically" lived at Mar-a-Lago during its open season.
