During the campaign, we were quite tempted to make our opinions known regarding Donald Trump’s daughter having such a prominent role in the campaign and now that she’s in the president’s inner circle, it’s like why?
It must be nice, while advocating for “paid family leave” and the “Paris Climate Accord”, to be able to push socialist policies that would never apply to her. Ivanka Trump couldn’t even fucking bother to register to vote for her own father yet SHE’s an advisor to the president?
There is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting.
— Ivanka Trump, 6/2/17
Wouldn’t that political naivete alone be a disqualifier for a position in the White House?
Ivanka Trump clearly lived in that New York City, predominately liberal socialite elite class where public policy issues are one of those topics too boring to deal with, and now she has the president’s ear.
At the same time, we also know nepotism runs rampant in the upper class and look how well that normally works out. In a nation of over 360 million people, Ivanka is the best the president could appoint as an advisor?
Sorry, but in the early 90’s Newt Gingrich was able to corral Republicans nationwide, craft a winning message that resulted in the GOP taking back control of the House and Senate for the first time in over 40 years. Ivanka was apparently quite “apolitical” only until her father decided to serve our nation, yet she’s more qualified to advise the President of the United States than a former Speaker of the House?
Pardon us if we see her as that little princess we all know whose daddy gives her what she wants; not because she’s such a great child but just to stop the perpetual whining and make her shut the hell up.
