This disclosure form shows how Ivanka makes millions of dollars without lifting a finger

Published

on

First daughter Ivanka Trump on Tuesday drew widespread ridicule when she attacked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for supporting ideas such as a universal basic income for all Americans.

“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something,” Ivanka said during a Fox News interview. “People want to work for what they get. So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want.”

However, Ivanka herself makes millions of dollars every year without lifting a single finger.

As Trump biographer Tim O’Brien notes on Twitter, Ivanka Trump’s financial disclosure form shows that her income streams largely derive from assets that do not require her to put in any kind of hard work.

“Ivanka Trump gets lucrative annual streams of income, rents and capital gains — $1 million here, $5 million there — from her biz, her husband’s biz, and her father’s biz that she largely gets for just sitting there,” observes O’Brien.

For example, her 2018 financial disclosure form shows that Ivanka made more than $5 million in rents and royalties from the Ivanka M. Trump Business Trust, which was set up after she took a job at her father’s White House and whose assets are overseen by relatives of husband Jared Kushner, as reported by the New York Times in 2017.

Other sources of income include nearly $4 million in hotel-related revenue from an LLC set up to lower the Trump family’s future estate tax burdens, and over $2 million in salary and severance from the Trump Payroll Corp.

Appearing on MSNBC early Sunday morning, Republican adviser Shermichael Singleton was stunned by GOP lawmakers who are still standing by Donald Trump and stated non-Republican voters who went for Trump in 2016 are likely going to abandon the president in 2020.

Speaking with host David Gura, Singleton, who served in the Trump administration at HUD, torched the Republican Party for tying itself to the faltering Trump.

"These people... look, I hate to say this but it's the truth: They're just lying, they're all lying and I have to wonder why?" he began. "Why are they ruining their reputations for Donald Trump who has shown himself throughout this process to not be loyal to anyone but himself?"

With impeachment, Trump has lost control of the news cycle — and he’s not handling it well

Published

on

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

We're still a year out from the election, but a strong early contender for the worst take among the chattering classes was the suggestion that Donald Trump secretly wanted to be impeached in order to fire up his base going into 2020. Not only is Trump's based perpetually aggrieved--and constantly told by the conservative press that America will come to a nasty end if the "socialist Democrats" come to power--but this storyline also elided the president's* narcissism.
