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.”

According to a new IRS tax filing from the National Rifle Association (NRA), current and former executives used the nonprofit group’s money for personal benefit and enrichment, the Washington Post reports.

"The assertion of impropriety comes four months after the attorney general of New York state filed a lawsuit accusing NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre and other top officials of using NRA funds for decades to provide inflated salaries and expense accounts."

Trump and Bill Barr’s ‘bloodthirsty execution spree’ in his final months in office is unprecedented: op-ed

Published

on

In an op-ed for Slate this Tuesday, Austin Sarat says that the Trump administration's announcement that it would continue to carry out executions in the days and weeks leading up to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden is a "bloodthirsty decision" that defies "the norms and conventions for modern presidential transitions."

"The Death Penalty Information Center reports that the last time an outgoing administration did anything remotely similar was more than a century ago, in 1889," Sarat writes. "At that time Grover Cleveland, the first Democrat to be elected president after the Civil War and the only president ever to have served as an executioner (when he was the sheriff in Erie County, New York), permitted three executions to proceed in the period between his electoral defeat and Benjamin Harrison’s inauguration in March 1889."

‘I’m in tears’: Americans grateful after watching Biden deliver more presidential speech than Trump

Published

President-elect Joe Biden addressed the nation about the Thanksgiving holiday, encouraging Americans to keep wearing their masks and stay away from people outside of your bubble because there is a light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel of terror.

There are reports of vaccines possibly being available to healthcare and nursing home workers by the end of the year, which could help with over-crowding in hospitals.

Biden spoke about his family's large Thanksgivings and how hard it will be for him this holiday season without the crowd of Bidens. But he, like many Americans, are doing the right thing, he said, not just for his family but for every other family in the community.
