‘No idea she’s privileged’: Ivanka’s friends say she believes she’s worked hard for all she has

Published

on

A long profile on Ivanka Trump appeared in New York Magazine that called out the president’s eldest daughter for being just as self-obsessed as her father.

According to friends of Trump, she initially tried to promote issues like climate change and women’s rights. Her father doesn’t listen, so she simply stopped trying.

“I have no control over him,” Trump has told friends behind the scenes. “I can’t believe people think I can control him.” She’s even confided to friends, “My father has never listened to me about — anything!”

Described as a “chauvinist,” by NYM, they explained that the president will call her “Baby” in meetings with leaders.

“And while she tries to remain in a narcissistic cocoon — on Instagram, she follows not one, not two, but 35 fan accounts, flooding her feed with love — she must also have regrets,” NYM wrote.

“She has a bitterness she never had before,” a friend confessed. “You see it in her eyes and in her brow. She has a sense of spite.”

The piece says that she’s become “more aggressive about taking what she may believe is rightfully hers.” The examples are a security clearance she didn’t qualify for and use of a personal email server after blasting Hillary Clinton for doing the same. Then there’s the matter of using her position to score Chinese trademarks for her business and renting a mansion in Washington, D.C. “from a Chilean businessman who then received permission to mine near a previously protected area of Minnesota.”

It’s unknown just how many deals she’s scored abroad for herself. The only way of knowing is by looking at Israeli, Chinese and Saudi intelligence spying on Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner.

Trump tried to make her own way, going to Georgetown University at first. She then was forced to transfer to her father’s school, the University of Pennsylvania. She tried to work for another real-estate developer, Forest City Ratner, but she only lasted a year before she went to work for her father.

“Ivanka always has to prove to herself that she’s gotten ahead on her own without her father,” a friend said. “She really has no idea she’s privileged. She genuinely thinks she’s earned everything she has. She goes on and on all the time about how hard she works.”

NYM asked if she really actually works all that hard.

“Sure, but she works hard the same way everyone works in New York — she still goes to the gym and meets friends for dinner,” the friend said.

Trump Twitter rages against impeachment testimony: ‘Star witnesses unable to answer the question!’

Published

on

President Donald Trump tweeted out a reaction to Day One of the impeachment hearings he claimed he hadn't watched.

The president insisted Wednesday afternoon, during a meeting with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, that he hadn't watched "one minute" of the first public testimony, by two State Department witnesses -- but he reacted the following day on Twitter.

"(Rep. John Ratcliffe) asked the two 'star' witnesses, 'where is the impeachable event in that call?'" Trump tweeted. "Both stared straight ahead with a blank look on their face, remained silent, & were unable to answer the question. That would be the end of a case run by normal people! - but not Shifty!"

GOP’s ‘chaotic’ first day fighting impeachment revealed they’re overwhelmed by evidence against Trump: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

The House Republican strategy for the first day of public impeachment hearings showed they knew Democrats were playing a strong hand, and they didn't.

Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, writing for Politico, explained how GOP lawmakers tried to confuse jurors -- in this case, the public and their counterparts in the Senate -- by talking about Hunter Biden or Javelin missiles because they wanted to distract from the strong evidence tying President Donald Trump to an extortion scheme.

Trump’s latest and most ludicrous con job

Published

on

Donald Trump is con artist in chief of the United States. His many apparent and impeachable crimes, such as the Ukraine scandal, collusion with Russia and violations of the Emoluments Clause, flow from that fact. Of course, Trump’s long con involves millions and perhaps even billions of dollars. But Trump’s big score, his ultimate goal, is permanent control of the presidency of the United States and the power for him and his family and allies to engage in legal theft indefinitely.
