Ivanka Trump ripped for ‘degradation of the office of the presidency’ by CNN analyst

Published

on

First daughter Ivanka Trump was blasted on Saturday for degrading the office of the president of the United States.

The former model works as a senior White House advisor in her father’s West Wing, despite having no governmental experience. Her husband, Jared Kurshner, has the same position and resumé.

On Saturday, the Associated Press reported on Ivanka’s role in the administration.

“Occasionally, while on the phone with foreign heads of state, Trump has handed the receiver to his daughter, Ivanka Trump, so she can talk with the leader, according to this individual,” the AP reported.

CNN national security analyst Sam Vinograd noted that, “In my four years at the White House, the President was able to handle talking to foreign leaders without ‘help’ from his daughter …. or any other people on his friends and family list for that matter.”

Vinograd noted Ivanka’s failure to pass a background check for a security clearance and proposed a fill-in-the-blank exercise.

“Putting a family member who experts didn’t think was responsible enough to get a TS clearance on the phone with a foreign leader is ________,” she tweeted.

Her colleague Carrie Cordero, a homeland security analyst at CNN, offered her submission.

She suggested that President Donald Trump putting his daughter on the phone with foreign leaders was “gross, it’s an abandonment of responsibility, it’s embarrassing for our country, and it’s a reminder that Ivanka Trump is as responsible for the degradation of the office of the presidency and the norms of executive branch functioning as anyone.”

Cordero wasn’t the only one to offer an idea. Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro also shared his thoughts.

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

Published

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
