‘Architecting a life you love’: A guide to the most absurd Ivanka-isms

Published

on

Unlike her father’s crude and insulting rhetoric, Ivanka Trump is relatively articulate and polite. But as the website Jezebel notes, Ivanka has her own unique way to mangle the English language.

“What this amounts to in practice is sounding a lot like a bot that’s been programmed to speak solely in corporate aphorisms,” writes Esther Wang. “Ivanka just loves to use—excuse me—utilize, multi-syllabic corporate-speak when plain language would do just fine.”

Wang does a rundown of so-called Ivanka-isms.

Like ‘architecting.” Wang points out that her book is filled with misuses of the word as a verb. In Women Who Work, the first daughter gives women advice on “architecting a life you love.”

In a speech to women in the W-GDP global exchange program, Ivanka tried to spruce up her speech to offering to “effectuate”. “We are going to be relentless in leaning on you to effectuate the kind of change we know you have the potential to.”

Other attempts to sound smart: “executing” and “actualizing” instead of the less-pretentious “doing.”

“Ivanka Trump, just empowering and architecting herself to effectuate and actualize the execution of women!” Wang jokes.

The coronavirus is tearing into a new demographic as states relax social distancing guidelines.

Younger Americans have gone back to work in the service industry and congregating in public, and their activity seems to be bearing out ominous predictions from public health experts, reported The Daily Beast.

“Watch what’s happening before and after the peak,” said epidemiologist Dr. Judith Malmgren, of the University of Washington’s school of public health. “The disease didn’t change, but the people who were infected changed.”

Trump’s Confederacy-loving fans accused of treason in brutal new Lincoln Project ad

Published

on

In another no-holds-barred ad from the Lincoln Project -- headed up by Republicans Rick Wilson, George Conway and Steve Schmidt -- Donald Trump is linked to the Confederacy and, by extension, treason against the United States.

The ad notes the prevalence of the Confederate flag at Trump rallies -- some even bearing his name -- and notes, "The men who followed this flag 150 years ago knew what it meant: Treason against their country. Death of the United States,” in the voiceover.

With clips showing the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, the ad goes on to ask, "What does it say that they’re all in for Trump?"
