‘Life in the bubble’: Ivanka Trump slammed for posting glamour photo as Syrian refugees denied entry to US

Published

on

First daughter Ivanka Trump was ripped on social media Saturday night for posting a photo of herself dressed up for a night on the town as protesters filled airports demanding officials release detained immigrants.

After what can best be described as a tone-deaf posting, the daughter of the president was accused of acting like Marie Antoinette, ignoring the public that turned out in massive numbers to protest the abrupt detention of legal green card holders at airports across the country.

Partricularly galling has been Ivanka Trump’s public face of standing up for motherhood as Syrian refugee women and their children have been banned by her father from entering the U.S. from the war-torn country.

While Ivanka has been touted as the social conscience within the Trump family circle of close advisors, the daughter who is serving as the defacto “First Lady” has often used her high profile to hype her brand, presenting herself and her husband Jared Kushner as the new DC “power couple.”

Commenters on Twitter were quick to point out her obliviousness to what was going on in the streets and in the airports with one noting she exemplified “life in the bubble.”

South Carolina woman who told cops they can’t arrest a ‘white, clean girl’ pleaded guilty to DUI: report

Published

on

Last year, 34-year-old Lauren Cutshaw of South Carolina was arrested in Bluffton after running a four-way stop sign at 60 miles an hour. Her blood alcohol level was registered at 0.18 — more than double the legal limit — and she admitted to being high and had marijuana paraphernalia in her car.

According to police reports at the time, Cutshaw offered an unusual defense of her behavior to the arresting officer: she shouldn't go to jail because she's a "thoroughbred ... white, clean girl" who was a cheerleader and sorority sister who graduated with "perfect grades" from a "high accredited university."

Republicans are getting nervous about Trump’s chances in Wisconsin: ‘There’s no way he’s gaining supporters’

Published

President Donald Trump's election chances, once again, will likely hinge on Wisconsin's suburbs -- but he can't expect a "free ride."

Hillary Clinton infamously lost the crucial state after failing to campaign there in the waning days before the 2016 election, but some GOP voters there are souring on the president, reported Politico.

“For the president to win Wisconsin again, he’s not going to have the free ride he had last time,” said Brandon Scholz, former executive director of the Wisconsin Republican Party. "He’s not going to have Hillary Clinton sitting on her hands “He’s going to have a completely engaged opposition party on the ground.”

Covering up the corruption: GOP tries to block new Mike Pence investigation

Published

on

Vice President Mike Pence's trip to Ireland — or more precisely his curious stay at one of President Trump’s hotels — has prompted multiple congressional probes. But the Democrat-led oversight investigations have already drawn complaints and pushback from Trump’s loudest Republican defenders on Capitol Hill, including the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee.

Democrats in both the House of Representatives and Senate have sent official letters of inquiry to the vice president’s office seeking specific information on the costs of Pence's recent stay at Trump International Golf Club in Doonbeg, Ireland. They have imposed a Sept. 19 deadline for the administration and the Trump Organization to turn over relevant documents. Democrats have raised concerns that Pence’s stay at Trump’s resort could have violated the emoluments clause in the Constitution. They’ve asked for details like the cost of the stay, Secret Service protection, and comparable rates for hotels nearby as well as across the country in Dublin, where Pence held meetings with Irish officials and business leaders.
